Debate Commission Set to Mute Mics During Thursday’s Final Contest

This could help save us some of the embarrassment we suffered after the first debate.

While President surely isn’t going to be thrilled about it, the American people got some good news this week as the Commission on Presidential Debates announced that they will indeed be muting microphones during Thursday night’s final debate.

The first debate of the 2020 election was a complete and utter disaster, and left both candidates looking disheveled, impulsive, and angry…which is precisely not how you wish to appear with only weeks remaining in the election.

Furthermore, and more important than the fleeting opinions we have on the character of our elected officials, is the fact that the raucous, unending interruptions of the event made it impossible for undecided voters to make any headway in their decisions.  These are, after all, two public servants who we are hiring to work for us, and the most important piece of this whole puzzle is making sure that Americans are making an informed vote.

Things are going to look, and sound, very different on Thursday. 

President Donald Trump and Joe Biden will have their microphones cut off during Thursday’s final presidential debate while their opponent delivers initial two-minute answers to each topic, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Monday.

The commission said both microphones will be on, however, during open-discussion segments of the debate.

“We realize, after discussions with both campaigns, that neither campaign may be totally satisfied with the measures announced today,” the commission said in a statement. “One may think they go too far, and one may think they do not go far enough. We are comfortable that these actions strike the right balance and that they are in the interest of the American people, for whom these debates are held.”

President Trump has reluctantly agreed to the changes, at least in principle, and plans to attend Thursday’s event.

The second debate was canceled after the Commander Chief opted out, on account of the event going virtual after he tested positive for coronavirus.
