It can be remembered that the first 2020 presidential debate between President Trump and Vice President Joe Biden was so chaotic as it was filled with a lot of crosstalk.
In fact, that was such a stressful TV watch that when a fly camped out on Mike Pence’s head during the VP debate, people appreciated the stress-relief factor. Speaking of cleansing, the debate commission decided to shut down the crosstalk factor during the final POTUS debate by cutting mics when a candidate went too long or attempted to interrupt.
Who got their mic cut first? To no surprise, Trump, of course.
Given that not a day goes by without a handful of tweets and a bombastic speech (or four) from the president, there’s a lot of people who have been waiting over four years for this to happen. In other words, a lot of people found this moment — seeing Trump’s mouth move without hearing his voice come out — to be therapeutic.
Luckily, the moment’s out there on the Internet, so it shall live on for all of posterity. And Trump will probably tweet about it, thereby ending the silence, but still… it actually happened.
