This Donald Trump rant is actually kind of funny because he’s essentially calling for the head of some poor bastard sound tech. A guy who can only work with what he’s given and he’s probably given shitty microphones because this venue is too cheap to buy top of the line equipment.
We’re going to lose that. $505 billion, and by the way, I don’t like this mic. Whoever the hell brought this mic system, don’t pay the son of a bitch who who put it in, I’ll tell you. These people. No, this mic is terrible. This stupid mic keeps popping. Do you hear that, George? Don’t pay him. Don’t pay him. You know, I believe in paying, but when somebody does a bad job, like this stupid mic, you shouldn’t pay the bastard. Terrible. Terrible. It’s true. And you gotta be tough with your people, because they’ll pay, they don’t care. They’ll pay. So we’re not gonna pay. I’ll guarantee I’m not paying for this mic. Every two minutes I hear like, “Boom, boom.” Anyway, I hope it’s okay for you out there, but it really is … Wow, you are really—look at that place, look up there, it’s packed, to the rafters. Man. Holy mackerel.
“I’m telling you, I’m not paying for this mic.” In what context would Trump ever be asked to pay for the mic? And the mic doesn’t work so the person responsible is an a) bastard who b) shouldn’t be paid.
Or…just ask for another mic?
