Trump dishes on debate: ‘I don’t want to believe in conspiracy theories, but my mic was crackling, lower than hers’

While there has been lots of debate over who won the first presidential debate Monday night, there can be no argument over which candidate was more accessible to the media afterwards.

In what could be an unprecedented move, GOP nominee Donald Trump availed himself to an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity immediately following the debate and was back on the network Tuesday morning for an appearance on “Fox & Friends.”

It was during the latter appearance that Trump offered a little inside baseball about the previous night’s debate, explaining that he was having troubles with his microphone in the auditorium.

“It was on and off, and it was much lower than hers,” Trump shared. “I don’t want to believe in conspiracy theories, of course, but it was much lower than hers … and it was crackling and [Clinton] didn’t have that problem.”

Trump also said that while he gave NBC’s Lester Holt a “C” for his performance as moderator, he felt Holt “gave me very unfair questions at the end, but I’m not complaining.”
