BILL HEMMER (FOX NEWS ANCHOR): Peter Doocy is reporting some interesting things.


HEMMER: Now I don't know if you've got these nuggets yet or not, but I'll read them for our viewers.

BAIER: Yeah, I do.

HEMMER: The Trump team asked to inspect the ears of each debater for electronic devices or transmitters. The Biden team has not consented to that.


BAIER: As far as the listening devices and the Biden campaign's response to that, I think that's interesting. We're going to have to follow that through the day to, you know, what comes out of that.
