HOW LONG IS 13 SECONDS?

This long…

Donald Trump’s claim that he spoke “very quickly” in an effort to quell the racist and xenophobic “send her back” chants at a rally last week prompted CNN anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo to stage a demonstration of just how long 13 seconds can seem.

That was the amount of time it took for Mr. Trump to start speaking again.

And, as we who have worked in tv news well know, 13 seconds of dead air is a lifetime.

Or so it seems.

Point made.
