The far-left has been censoring conservatives all week.
So it’s no surprise that Trump’s microphone was muted first during the debate last night in Nashville, Tennessee.
President Trump was responding to a question about healthcare and all of a sudden his microphone was muted for having too long of an answer.
The muting was not done by the moderator by the production crew who works for the Commission on Presidential Debates.

The microphone rule is stupid. I hope Trump shouts over his muted mic.

The new rules for the debate were covered by BBC News:
So the nonpartisan commission that oversees US presidential debates announce a new measure to help moderators “maintain order” – muted microphones.
This time, each candidate’s audio feed will at times be cut while the other is speaking.
The debate moderator, NBC News’ Kristen Welker, will ask questions. Afterwards both of the candidates will have two minutes to answer – with no interruptions.
Though that doesn’t mean the debate will necessarily go smoothly.
Once Mr Biden begins to speak, Mr Trump’s audio feed will be cut. This will not be done by the moderator, though. Instead, a member of the production crew who works for the Commission on Presidential Debates will be responsible for turning off Trump’s microphone.
Many people on Twitter believe that Trump’s microphone being muted even gave him an advantage.
This is Trump’s best debate ever by far. Tomorrow Dems will be pissed off about the mute button.

Looks like turning off Trump’s mic makes a better debate. #debates
