Kamala Harris is showing true outrage and concern, real care for the American people in this pandemic -- while Pence is throwing out bullshit, deflecting and making as if the worst of the pandemic is over. It's insulting and grotesque.
Kamala Harris won the debate. She did what she needed to do, exposing the lies and negligence, while Pence just defended Trump completely, and pushed conspiracy theories. Pence was nasty, a bully, interrupting and basically horrible. Especially to women. Yes, the moderator was terrible to him, but Harris still got her points in. The fly on Pence's head became metaphor for disease, and he just looked bad. The debate doesn't change anything. As I said in the post, Harris needed to make the case and she did. Pence just defended someone the majority of people now think is a reckless nut.
Harris is doing what she needs to do. Point out all the lies, all the negligence, the rush on the Supreme Court nomination, the attacks on Obamcare. i guess he's doing what he needs to do -- defending Donald Trump. The problem is, he's indefensible, even if you're grandpa.
Harris calls out Trump/Pence for taking the words “science” and “climate change” off the website;
“We have seen a pattern with this administration: they don’t believe in science”
Question to Pence:
Do you believe climate change is an existential threat?
Pence: “They’re going to raise your taxes.”
Come on. And then the moderator doesn't demand he answer.
Overall: Pence is very slick, he's done this many times. He lies on the offense, deflects on the defense. He got annoyed at Harris, interrupted -- moderator should have shut him down, but it wasn't a good look for him, especially with women. Harris came back and said, basically, I'm taking my time back.
There is a fly on Pence's head!
Lies, Lies, Lies. I cant wait until the election to get rid of these awful people
Pence is definitely showing us he’s a shady, corrupt politician with his tactics. Kamala is handling it all very well. Susan is definitely a Trumper and is allowing him to interrupt and keep talking past his time waaayyyy too much.
Wasn’t a very good debate, the time disparity wasn’t good, Pence got way more time. Moderator shit.
I can barely stand to listen to Pence, but I’m sure Kamala is going to do great. Frankly I think she should just make sure to bring up their ties to white nationalism and their dangerous and false messaging on COVID as many times as she can while covering other important topics as well. We are in this place with COVID because they don’t believe science and their desire to incite violence and hate in this country is horrifying. We all want to be able to sleep again at night and to do so we need to turn the channel on the reality show we are living in. I admire Kamala so much and I can’t wait to see her in action tonight!!!!
The moderator is failing to control Pence and thereby failing Harris and us. His slick agenda is clear: taxes and the Green New Deal. She stops for the most part when her time’s up. And, Pence has now twice used the “entitled to your own opinions” line, diminishing it and frankly abusing it.
NY Post mentions the fly 🤣
Harris knows it’s almost over and took the opportunity to make a closing statement preemptively.
Good, Harris is talking about the Affordable Care Act.
What a fucking bully he is. Slick, but a bully.
I sure wish there was fact checking going on with these debates. It’s infuriating to sit there and listen to Pence lie and then divert from a given topic when he can’t think of a good lie. Kamala is laying it on the line and calling it straight. Loving her performance tonight.
