Presidential Debate Commission Agrees to New Rule Muting Trump, Biden for Interrupting

Linkedin Share

Joe Biden was the first to interrupt at the first presidential debate. That being said, President Trump interrupted a lot. Sure, he had to defend himself from Joe’s constant lies.

But it wasn’t a great experience for the viewer.

At Thursday’s debate, mics will be cut.

From MyFox8:

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden will have their microphones cut off in Thursday’s debate while their rival delivers their opening two-minute answer to each of the debate topics.

The 90-minute debate is divided into six 15-minute segments, with each candidate granted two minutes to deliver uninterrupted remarks before proceeding to an open debate. The open discussion portion of the debate will not feature a mute button, but interruptions by either candidate will count toward their time in the second and final debate Thursday.
