No matter what the mainstream media, Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, or any other shrieking liberals would have you believe, Trump was right. Again.
According to a statement from the Commission on Presidential Debates itself, Republican nominee Donald Trump was cheated by a malfunctioning microphone during the first presidential debate that “affected the sound level in the debate hall.”
Trump had complained shortly after the debate of problems with his audio — complaints for which the left widely denounced him, of course.
The Debate Commission on Friday confirmed Trump’s suspicions about his faulty audio equipment.
“Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall,” the Commission on Presidential Debates said in short statement cited by the New York Daily News.
That statement appeared to agree with what Trump had said immediately following Monday night’s event:

Trump himself said that he wasn’t interested in pushing conspiracy theories regarding the defective microphone, but there’s no question that it didn’t help his debate performance — at the very least, I have to believe that it was distracting during the debate itself — and certainly didn’t hurt Clinton’s.
The entire charade exemplified the behavior of the political establishment and the mainstream media during the 2016 election cycle: The debate commission itself couldn’t provide working equipment that a high schooler could have set up properly, and the media largely mocked Trump’s complaints in disbelief.
That’s only compounded by a mainstream media that have seemed out to get Trump since the day he announced his candidacy.
Hey, no one who has paid the least bit of attention to presidential politics since Watergate should be at all surprised to see the media lined up in lockstep behind the Democrat nominee.
But they used to at least try to hide their bias.
