    Omigod. Either this man is getting paranoid, or he's really dumb enough to suggest that even the mic technicians were rigging the debate for Clinton:

    Okay. Most people would've dealt with it, and that's that. But not Thurston Jackass III:

    ******* really???

    Does this man have no shame?

    I don't get it. If he is so great and such a winner, why is he always playing the victim card? His behavior is more consistent with a loser than a winner.

    Either he thinks his long time friend is so deceptive (that plays into some audiences' beliefs), or he really is paranoid (which might play into others'). Probably the latter, TBH. The way things are heading, I don't think he and the Clintons will remain friends much longer. Then again, despite Obama's blaming everything on Bush all the time they've been seen being very pally in recent years too. GWB has a remarkable temperament given what Obama sold audiences with about "the previous administration" for everything as to why something as puny as, say, the biggest free country on Earth, is now in such **** shape (circa 2009-present despite lack of executive orders to make actual positive progress quicker? We all know there are overlaps and other considerations as well, but even Reagan stopped bleating about Carter eventually, nor did Reagan adopt any of Carter's policies. Obama has adopted GOP policies, the most obvious of which is also known as "Romneycare". People have mentioned that enough times.)

    After seeing the lengths Hillary went to to rig the system against Bernie through the DNC and how she covered up her email server it really wouldn't surprise me.

    The biggest problem with that microphone was that it had a moron talking into it.

    Narrcacisists stuffer from hugely inflated egos based on insecurity.

    I'm not sure why you think there is a conspiracy but the debate commission has released a statement indicating that Trumps microphone was not functioning correctly.

    I'm being sarcastic about the "conspiracy", of course. Trump sort of implied that there was something more to it than just a simple malfunction. When he says, "I wonder why it was bad -- think of that," I doubt he was pondering the intricacies of UHF band mic interference.

    A good speaker could talk into a tin can and still get his or her point across. ;)

    And yet Trump lays a lot of the blame for his performance on the mic:

    My emphasis.

    Trump could.

    And he did.

    The dialogue about the alleged rigged microphone... only came up after the epic failed attempt by the radical Clintonian operatives to smear trump over the way he sounded speaking into said microphone.

    All this faux outrage is comical.

    No it didn't. Trump was saying this in the spin room just moments later. It had nothing to do with anything the Clinton campaign said.

    A man who needs 50% of his brain power to deal with a faulty microphone is not a man who can be trusted with nuclear weapons.

    Here's the thing. There was no issue with hearing him across the world via TV. Not having the same mic volume inside the room didn't throw him off. Being held accountable for his comments and his ego/narcissism threw him off. The mic would have just amplified that more in the room.

    It's actually pretty distracting when your microphone isn't projecting properly, I've seen it mess up quite a few execs who are presenting to thousands of people at a time.

    I'm guessing you have no experience speaking to groups of 200+ when your voice dies out after the first few rows of chairs, try presenting when your mic volume is fluctuating in and out.

    So you're saying Trump is raging for the lulz. Makes sense I guess considering his whole campaign is one biggly lulz.

    Also you can see trump moving his mic around during the debate and hunching over it.

    He held his own at the very least and has two more debates to prove himself if it was causing the issue.

    It was only the mic in the auditorium that had issues, the one used for broadcasting was fine. Either way, the mic played no part in his failure at the debate.

    Then stop making comments that show that you know nothing about speaking to large audiences.
    --- Post Merged, Oct 3, 2016 ---
    When you speak into a mic and it doesn't come out the other end there's no way for Trump to know if it's broadcasting properly or if it's completely broken.

    You're funny. Trump has done plenty of public appearances and spoken in front of many large audiences. Anyone who has done that much public speaking shouldn't be thrown off by a mic. If he were singing and his IFB was an issue, I would agree with you. But you're really reaching here if you think his debate performance was a reflection of a mic issue.

    Why does it matter if he's singing? If you talk into a mic and it's not projected into the hall it's going to throw you off. I've seen people who speak every day of their lives get thrown off by a broken mic, normally you call someone in to fix it, but when it's a live debate the left would trounce on him for even mentioning it (obviously as shown by this thread where the debate commission even admits that his mic was broken).
