Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson is blaming his awkward entrance at the latest GOP debate to poor sound backstage. 

{mosads}“ABC News has admitted there were sound issues,” Carson said in the spin room after the debate, according to Politico. “We couldn’t hear very well backstage, so I was just waiting to hear my name.” 

Carson said he didn’t go out on stage when the stage manager told him Saturday night to because he didn’t hear his name. 

Carson instead froze in front of the camera while other candidates were being introduced. Donald Trump and John Kasich also failed to step on stage when they were introduced.   

“They said go out when you hear your name and I didn’t hear my name,” Carson said.
