The Fox Business crew were without a doubt much more adept at moderating a debate than the gotcha clowns at CNBC, but viewers couldn’t help notice that near the end of the first hour of Tuesday night’s GOP debate, the time bell seemed to lose all meaning, and the “two bell answer” soon became the best anyone could hope for.
Has Clock Kid moved to Qatar yet? He could certainly whip up a buzzer that would grab the candidates’ attention.
the buzzer has less authority than a clam.

@greggutfeld The bell is much better than whiny moderators yelling the candidates names over and over to get them to shut up

@greggutfeld That's just the add 30 sec to the microwave button!

Pity the poor political junkie who’s trying to watch the debate with a dog in the house.

Everyone’s dog is barking.

My dog is the only one paying attention to the bell. #GOPdebate

My dog growls each time the bell sounds at #GOPDebate – must be like a dog whistle because candidates don't seem to hear it

I just had to put my dog out because these people can't keep to their time. The bell was giving her apoplexy. #GOPDebate

My dog keeps barking at GOP debate bell thinking it's the doorbell. Had to send him out.
