Dick Morris to Newsmax TV: Potential for Debate Moderator to Abuse Muting Mics

(Newsmax TV/"Greg Kelly Reports")

By    |   Thursday, 22 October 2020 08:42 PM

Former Bill Clinton adviser Dick Morris said Thursday he’s not worried about the topics selected for the final debate between President Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden — but is concerned about the moderator’s potential abuse of muting the debaters' mics.

In remarks on Newsmax TV’s ''Greg Kelly Reports,'' Morris said NBC News rising star Kristen Welker could potentially silence Trump for 2 minutes at a time.

''I wouldn't be thrown off by the choice of topics. My worry is that when [Welker] asked him a question he might talk about Hunter Biden,'' Morris said.

But Morris said he hoped Trump would keep pounding away at the issue, and at his next chance in the debate, ''comes back in and talks about Hunter.''

''She might at that point check the mic and he will be silenced not for interrupting, but for the 2 minutes,'' Morris warned.

Morris also said when Trump brought former President Bill Clinton’s accusers to a 2016 debate with Hillary Clinton, ''it was like the alumni association'' of those who were allegedly were abused by him.

''Hillary was always determined to defend Bill’s reputation, not because she believed him, but that her powers as First Lady were dependent on it … and [if] her marriage was illegitimate so was her role as First Lady,'' he said.
