Andrew Yang supporters are furious after the Democratic candidate claimed his mic was cut during last night’s debate.
“I feel bad for those who tuned in to see and support me that I didn’t get more airtime. Will do better (my mic being off unless called on didn’t help),” tweeted Yang.
Second, I feel bad for those who tuned in to see and support me that I didn’t get more airtime. Will do better (my mic being off unless called on didn’t help) and glad to have another opportunity in July (and afterwards)!

This prompted the hashtag #LetYangSpeak to trend on Twitter.
A video from the debate appears to show the moment when Yang’s mic was cut to prevent him jumping into the conversation, which was allowed of other candidates.
Another supporter pointed out that Senator Michael Bennet got 5 questions to Yang’s 2 despite Yang polling ahead of him.
Here's a list of the candidates ordered by # of direct questions they were asked. Bear in mind these questions were determined in advance by NBC. Polling obviously influenced this, but Yang is outpolling half the candidates. Why did Bennet at 0.4% get 5 and Yang 2? #LetYangSpeak pic.twitter.com/Qw1ZmHxSCJ

It appears as though Yang is shaping up to be the Ron Paul of the 2020 race.
In both 2008 and 2012, Paul was dealt an atrocious hand by the media, being treated as if he didn’t exist by the corporate press despite polling well.
“Andrew Yang was on stage for 2 hours last night and the MSNBC/NBC crackpot moderators only allowed him a little over 2 minutes of talking time,” commented conservative Wayne Dupree. “I am not even a Democrat and I see that’s wrong.”
