Like everybody else, I thought Donald Trump's performance at the first debate left a lot to be desired. Yesterday, CNN published this story. Trump's microphone was cutting in and out throughout the debate.
I cannot imagine how this can happen at a major event. Sound crews routinely check and double check sound systems for an event of this magnitude. A mic cutting in and out cannot be explained except as sabotage.
My opinion of the debate has been blown to hell by this. No speaker can be effective when his mic is malfunctioning.
