Our ear-holes have barely recovered from the uberly frustrating shouting match that was the 2020 Presidential Debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, but democracy stops for no one (apart from maybe mail-in votes if Trump has anything to do with it), so we’re back to it with the VP Debate.
Wednesday’s debate marked the first on-air ‘conversation’ between the Democratic pick for Vice President, Senator Kamala Harris and the current Republican VP Mike Pence. Topics touched on included abortion, racism, COVID-19 and the upcoming election.
Pence and Harris agreed on approximately none of these topics.
Fortunately, there were two rather fetching pieces of plexiglass separating the two, so there were no fistycuffs or, you know, a transfer of a highly contagious infectious disease.
Watch Kamala Harris and Mike Pence discuss a potential COVID vaccine. Post continues after video.
Yes folks, it was another wild ride. Albeit a slightly more eloquent one, with less blatant disrespect for the rules.
But what did the internet have to say about the VP Debate?
We’ve gathered the best tweets surrounding the live debate and plonked them all here for your viewing pleasure - including a dedicated section honouring the fly that resided on Mike Pence’s head for the majority of the debate. Bless that bug.
