Hannity Backs Plan to Cut Trump’s Mic at Presidential Debates

On Wednesday, Sean Hannity hailed President Joe Biden’s proposal for a debate as “excellent news” and even supported his plan to disconnect a candidate’s microphone when they are not responding to a question.

Hannity claimed that this would “lessen the aggressiveness” of Donald Trump.

Shortly after Biden took to social media to propose two debates with Trump prior to the presidential election in November, the first of which would take place in June, Hannity joined Fox & Friends.

The Fox News anchor referred to Biden’s proposal for a debate as a “Hail Mary pass” from a “desperate” campaign.

Additionally, the debates would “lock in” Biden as the candidate, according to Hannity.

“I think Donald Trump will wipe the floor with him, and I don’t care if we get the State of the Union jacked up Joe with caffeine, Red Bull, or whatever, or we get regular Joe that could barely walk off the stage last night,” Hannity said.

“He proposed a format that I think is extraordinarily favorable for [Trump], which is if you’re not talking, your mic’s not on,” he said. “I think one of the difficulties in 2020 is probably Donald Trump, in that first debate, was too aggressive. This will then kind of put rails in place so one person talks at a time, and the more Joe talks, I think the worse he does.” he continued.

A requirement of the Biden campaign for debates would be the cessation of candidate microphones during those who refrained from speaking.

This proposal was wholeheartedly embraced by Hannity, who acknowledged that Trump was probably too aggressive in their first 2020 debate.

Wednesday, Biden criticized Trump in a social media video regarding his pending criminal trial in Manhattan and claimed to have defeated him in two 2020 debates.
