Debate Rules: 90 Minutes, No Breaks, No Commercials, Special Podium For Hillary

DEBATE RULES: NO COUGHING BREAKS
**Exclusive**

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.

This is outrageous!

So she's 5'4"? Big deal! The average height of a woman is 5'5". Why should she be accomodated? That's ridiculous. Since she's so proud of being a woman, she needs to own her height. No short man would ever request such a thing. Her height should not matter one bit, if her ideas and arguments are good. She's a sneaky skank who should not be given any special treatment, especially since she claims she's in such excellent health.

Wondering if that "custom made podium" has a stability harness.

If Hillary is going to be elevated, they had better provide for stability during the entire 90 minute debate.  She may be wearing leg braces and/or she will have belt attachments so she can lean back without going over.  Alternatively, I guess they could have demanded that Donald Trump be in a kneeling position (lol).  Hillary is having Napoleon complex issues.  If she looked inwardly rather than just at her appearance, she would realize that her stature is least of her problems.
