Comedy Microphonology

The following are two articles I found this morning regarding the complaints made by Trump following his poor performance at the debate with Clinton, blaming his failure on an alleged faulty mic, a problem he strongly suggested, speaking to FOX TV, was part of a conspiracy against him. Enjoy.

It’s contagious in the wrong places.

We found the epicenter of an upsetting new hearing loss epidemic.

2:05 PM – 27 Sep 2016

Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” doesn’t air again until its new temporary time slot on Wednesday, but the show couldn’t wait to skewer its favorite target.

A funny “Frontal” tweet on Tuesday illustrated how GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and his campaign seem to suffer convenient hearing loss.

Trump and operatives past and present ― Katrina Pierson, Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen ― are shown turning a deaf ear to journalists and civility.

The last clip features a previous microphone complaint from Trump, who demands that the installer not be paid. That prompted one viewer to observe:

cray rool @crayrool

@FullFrontalSamB That last bit is such an insight into his animosity toward the working class.

2:10 PM – 27 Sep 2016

At least somebody’s listening.

Huffpost Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.

Trump Charges Debate Was Rigged By Defective Mic

NEW YORK CITY: Goodyear Satire Company—

“The debate was rigged,” charged Donald Trump early today. “Organizers purposely gave me a faulty microphone that amplified my actual words.”

The Republican presidential nominee made the stunning claim in the wake of a first debate performance some have regarded as disastrous to his candidacy.

“My mic never picked up my devastating reference to Gennifer Flowers,” said Trump. “But I heard myself say it a thousand times.”

Independent audio engineers support Trump’s claims. “The sound waves were confused after leaving Trump’s mouth,” said expert Chester Pemberton.”We think it was interference from the tinfoil hats worn by Trump supporters. Or, it was all that sniffling.”

“Hillary’s mic didn’t pick up half of her lies,” complained Trump. “But I heard them all,” Trump said as he was calmly led away from the podium and into a waiting car by campaign co-manager Kellyanne Conway.

Trump received support from an unexpected source. Howard Dean, 2004 Democratic candidate whose own campaign was effectively ended by a mysterious “Dean Scream” at an Iowa rally, empathised with Trump. “Same thing happened to mEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.”
