The first Democratic primary debate was Wednesday in Miami

After hot-mic technical difficulties brought the 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate to a shocking pause, President Trump blasted NBC, the network hosting the contest, as "truly unprofessional".

As Todd tried to ask Sen. Elizabeth Warren about gun control in the United States.

Todd and Maddow, too, took the problem in stride and again asked for the control room to turn off the errant microphones, wherever they were. Several of the candidates broke into laughter.

"We are hearing our colleague's audio", moderator Chuck Todd said as voices could be heard bleeding into the venue.

At the time, she said she looked "forward to seeing more Papua New Guineans working with Australian employers under the Pacific Labour Scheme".

"The control room can turn off the mics", Maddow could be overheard saying.

All of that momentarily stopped, however, when an unexpected audio issue left debate moderators Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd flummoxed and the politicians on stage bewildered and a bit bemused. "We did not prepare for this". He quickly threw to commercial so the error could be fixed.

President Trump, who hosted NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" before being elected president, was watching.

"Truly unprofessional and only worthy of a FAKE NEWS Organization, which they are!" the president added.
