Andrew Yang’s Mic Was Mysteriously Cut Off When He Tried Speaking During the Debate

For those who tuned in to last night’s Night Two of the Democratic Presidential Primary Debates, it became obvious that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were the focus of most discussions during the event with one popular potential candidate receiving little to no airtime — Andrew Yang.

According to an analysis by The Hill, Yang received the least amount of airtime last night out of all 20 Democrats on stage during both nights of the debates, with just two minutes and 50 seconds of speaking time. 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 nearly twice as much time compared to Yang.
