DEBATE RULES: No Coughing Breaks Allowed!

 

DRUDGE REPORT: Presidential Debate Rules Do Not Allow Coughing Breaks

Matt Drudge's influential Drudge Report is reporting that Hillary Clinton will not have the luxury of taking her usual coughing breaks during the first presidential debate next week. The first Donald Trump / Hillary Clinton debate is scheduled to last 90 minutes.

It's interesting to note that Hillary also demanded a step stool but was turned down by the Commission on Presidential Debates. Standing at only 5'4" Hillary Clinton is a foot shorter than Donald Trump 6'2". Clinton will instead get a custom built podium designed to minimize Trump's significant heigh advantage.

If presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton slips into a coughing fit or any other medical crisis during Monday's high-stakes debate, she will have to power through, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned!

"There are no commercial breaks," a commission source explains. "Period."

Debate moderator Lester Holt does not have the authority to cut away from the stage during the epic 90-minute showdown. And microphone audio for either of the candidates is not to be manipulated.

Clinton has experienced severe coughing episodes throughout the election year. During a Labor Day campaign stop she suffered a 4-minute choking marathon.

Monday's throwdown could top out at 100 million viewers, making it the biggest political event in history.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The presidential debate commission settled an early flashpoint when Clinton demanded a step-stool at the podium to add height to her 5'4" frame. Campaign Chairman John Podesta expressed concern that Hillary would be dwarfed by 6'2" Trump. The request was quickly rejected. The commission is allowing for a custom-made podium, which will accommodate the difference in stature.
