  • Andrew Yang says microphone was 'not on' at times during Democratic debate

Democratic presidential candidate and entrepreneur Andrew Yang claimed on Friday that his microphone during the Democratic debate Thursday was turned off at times.

"There were also a few times, FYI, where I just started talking, being like, 'Hey, I want to add something there, ' and my mic was not on", Yang said while speaking to supporters after the event. "It's not like if you start talking it all of a sudden takes over the convo".

"It's like, I was talking but nothing was happening", Yang continued.

"At no point during the debate was any candidate's microphone turned off or muted", an NBC News spokesman told CNN in a statement.

He spoke for less than three minutes, the analysis found. This is far less compared to the other presidential hopefuls who were also among those granted the least amount time last night: author Marianne Williamson clocked in at four minutes and 49 seconds and Rep. Eric Swalwell at four minutes and 24 seconds, still almost twice as much time compared to Yang. "Someone in production is turning on a mic or not", Yang said. "I quite literally felt somewhat, like, mechanically restricted".

The top four in the gabbing department were former Vice President Joe Biden (13 minutes, 19 seconds), California Sen.

Jim Dolan Wouldn't Offer Kevin Durant Max, Yikes
Making matters worse, it appears the Knicks took themselves out of consideration for Durant on their own accord. NY fans had visions of Zion Williamson and Durant but both players will be wearing different uniforms.

Yang clocked in at 2 minutes and 58 seconds, according to The Times.

Even as Yang chalked up his lackluster showing to the "media marginalization of the Andrew Yang narrative", he allowed that he was unaccustomed to the debate format and acknowledged that there was a learning curve. "It's not the worst thing in the world to happen to us".

Yang's lack of airtime didn't go unnoticed by his passionate fans, with the hashtag #LetYangSpeak trending on Friday morning.

He claimed that he experienced microphone issues "at least a few times", including during discussions on climate change and education when the problem was not addressed by moderators.

Other campaigns have also suggested debate producers and moderators may be tipping the scales.

Despite Yang's limited camera time, he managed to win Drudge's online poll, although that may have more to do with online trolling than winning a debate he didn't get to speak at. "They aren't giving any time to Tulsi at all".
