Trump's Blistering Response to Debate's 'Horrible Technical Breakdown' Utterly Humiliates Establishment Media Hacks


NBC News had some technical problems Wednesday night during the first 2020 Democratic debate, which forced the network to temporarily cut off its feed.

And as a former reality television star and something of an expert when it comes to TV showmanship, President Donald Trump was not impressed.

NBC, who used more than one team of debate moderators, appeared to be having trouble turning one of the earlier team’s microphones off.

Are you unimpressed by NBC's debate?

That meant the millions of people watching at home heard some random chit-chat while one of the current moderators was asking a question about gun control.

But enough from me, watch what happened below:

Trump’s response was pure, well, Trump!

He wrote, “.@NBCNews and @MSNBC should be ashamed of themselves for having such a horrible technical breakdown in the middle of the debate.”

“Truly unprofessional and only worthy of a FAKE NEWS Organization, which they are!” the president added.

He’s absolutely right.

You’d think that a powerful establishment media outlet like NBC would have taken care of something as simple as making sure to turn the right mics off.

But apparently not.

And plenty of other pundits felt the same way:

It was not the first time Trump had weighed in on the Democratic debate.

Earlier, he needed just one tweet to describe what he was watching.

“BORING!” Trump wrote.
