Debate commission to cut the mics at Trump-Biden showdown

President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden will have their microphones muted during Thursday’s presidential debate to ensure each candidate can get his points across uninterrupted.

The Commission on Presidential Debates announced the measure on Monday evening in response to the constant interruptions that marred the first presidential debate last month. During that event, moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News had to repeatedly intervene to keep Trump from interjecting during Biden’s remarks. Biden, at one point, told the president to “shut up.”

The candidates’ microphones will be muted only during two-minute opening remarks at the start of each 15-minute segment of the debate. During the remainder of the debate, the microphones will be on to allow an open discussion, the commission announced. Time taken up by interruptions by an opponent will be given back to the candidate.
