After technical problems at the top of the second hour of the first night of the first democratic debate, moderators Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd “faked out” the audience.

  • Maddow started off a block in the second hour of the second night by attempting to toss to Lester Holt with an audience question.
  • However, it appears she was told in her IFB that everything wasn’t quite in place yet.
  • She jokingly said that the whole tease about an audience question was a “fake out.”
