Due to the chaos of the first encounter between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, the CPD announced they were looking at new measures “to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues.” Reports have suggested that the CPD was thinking about muting the microphones if either candidate continuously breaks the debate decorum rules, and Brian Kilmeade slammed the very notion as he and his colleagues discussed the possibility.
“It’s all so insulting to the most powerful man in the world to be silenced and have their mic cut or her mic cut in the future if that’s how you are going to do it,” Kilmeade said.
“But, who decides to cut off the president of the United States?” Steve Doocy added. “Would it be a moderator with a big kill switch on their desk or somebody backstage? And then there are going to be the conspiracy theory ideas. You know, they both have the right to say what they want. They just have to figure out how to do it within the rules.”
