  2. Moderator horrible waste of tax payers dollars

  3. The moderator’s role and questions are made obsolete when both sides are allowed to never answer the question! 😂😂😂

    They just need a robot turning microphones on and off to give each person 2 minutes back and forth. 🤦🏻‍♀️

  4. If Trump will not hesitate to look after american citzens, why has he not discussed the issue of russian bounties with Putin – that’s right he gutless and will only pick on smaller countries. Why does Pence not answer the question he was asked, instead of attacking Biden and Harris, does he not have any original thoughts of his own, just a dummy mouthpiece for Trump.

  5. Hillary was at the debate…she landed on Pence”s head!

    • @John Zappulla do you really need the definition of dead? Come on buddy

    • @Mj light difference is Kamala is a Socialist and HRC is the most corrupt politician ever.

    • That fly couldn’t have picked a better head of hair to really stand out on. It was probably drawn-in like a moth to a bug zapper.

      The funniest thing to me was wondering what Kamala was thinking the whole time it was there. She smiled a little, but otherwise gave no indication that she saw it, and she must have seen it.

  6. People of faith?! Christians don’t believe in abortions. That’s murder! Read your Bible! She’s using that so she doesn’t look bad. When a baby is involved it’s not just the woman’s body anymore at that point! She needs to keep her legs closed.

      Numbers 5:11-31 has instructions for how to PERFORM an abortion.
      Evangelical Christians didn’t even care about abortion until 1979.

  7. Leme guess this comment section is getting removed soon? It supports too many trump votes

    • @Greg Kalla ummm because Trump is no way going to win by a landslide delusional moron.

    • @Ytremz #bidenkiddiesnifferupper

    • @Mark bodman Biden sniffed a few kids hair, Trump grabbed a few women by the 🙀, nothing to boast about.

    • You are right !! Dictator Democrat.

    • Nick Kallinikios @ the system is designed to keep the crazy motherfuckers from running the thing into the ground, unless you aren’t getting what we are putting down….more and more that part isn’t working either, soon you will get your way and it will be like Rome at the end. But not yet. You should read about how fun it was for the people back then!!!

  8. The moderator didn’t push back enough on any of those answers.

    • KH didn’t give any answers. I mean WTF is she talking about?

    • Time to give moderator weapons: gavel and mute button.

    • Collin Lukacsina | October 8, 2020 at 7:47 PM | Reply

      @J D Thats because Wallace wasn’t a moderator, he might as well been debating. He forced Trump to answer and yet he let Biden move on without answering the questions and he wouldn’t let Trump respond to Biden’s statements

    • I’ve always said we need an independent group of debate specialists to answer one main question in a debate – Did the candidate answer the question? Put aside what that answer actually is. Just, did they ADDRESS it?

    • Refresh Rejoice | October 8, 2020 at 10:45 PM | Reply

      The moderator should only ask questions and try to keep the candidates to equal time. It’s up to the viewers to decide how well the questions were answered. If the moderator starts making comments on the answers then they’re trying to influence the debate like Chris Wallace did.

    The only problem is that was only honest abes opinion not law.

    I thought we were a country of laws not prest.

    She is speaking as if President Trump infected the people with corona virus. Aren’t the American people grown up enough to take care of themselves ?

    Packing the courts would be one of *THE WORST* THINGS for our country.

    A functional facilities of the government would be eroded.

    The democrats choosing the nuclear option by rewriting the law in 2013 to do away with needing 60 senators to confirm justices was awful enough.

    I would recommend to anyone they should watch the full debate themselves

    • Esther Sanders | October 8, 2020 at 10:16 PM | Reply

      @Diana Can you explain how Trump defame the country?

    • Christopher Gross | October 8, 2020 at 10:21 PM | Reply

      R T she didn’t do bad enough to tank the election. Even though she straight up lied multiple times the casual viewer isn’t gonna really research into it. Pence did everything he was supposed to. And this debate was much much more informative than Trump/Biden. I enjoyed it.

    • Esther Sanders | October 8, 2020 at 10:28 PM | Reply

      @Lj C Wow, you think she is respectful with the arrogant smile?

    • Watch Kamala not react at all to the fly on Pence’s head. It’s hilarious.

    • R T – What planet do you live on? Pence is the one who lied CONSTANTLY. Biden is against fracking, not a communist, and has made no decision on packing the courts. Period. Saying, without evidence, that someone holds a position contrary to their stated position is absurd.

      It’s not the same as, say, Donald Trump, who says he’ll protect preexisting conditions protections while CLEARLY working to remove them. Or Trump CLEARLY encouraging right wing militias while saying he isn’t.

  14. What’s the purpose in this sht if no one really answers questions. Is it to see who can deflect the best?

    • WORD. 🤨😴

    • Christopher Gross | October 8, 2020 at 12:07 PM | Reply

      Pence was one question behind because he was using his time on a different topic to respond to a remark Harris made. I don’t see a problem with it and would prefer it to avoid a Trump/Biden debacle. Also Harris was straight up lying.

    • @Christopher Gross thats mostly cause at the very start Pence didn’t get a minute to react to Harris.

      But really just make it a 3 hour debate with maybe one or two 15 mins breaks. A free debate gets you the mist info, but also takes the most time.

    • @Morgan All truth Moderator: did you sort evrything out with Biden if he gets sick?

      Harris: let me tell you i was soo happy when i Biden contacted me to be VP.

      Simple question no answers…

    • I’ve always said we need an independent group of debate specialists to answer one main question in a debate – Did the candidate answer the question? Put aside what that answer actually is. Just, did they ADDRESS it?

  15. My teacher would kick me out her class if I answered questions like this

    • @Lucky Oswald she’s a little more focused. He’s like a walrus on skates

    • @Emily lmao more focused. She was all over the place. He was more clear concise and rational. Kamalas whole thing is just about emotions. No substance in her policy, it was all an emotional appeal. She could even keep her lies straight about their policy positions

    • FirstName LastName | October 8, 2020 at 2:38 PM | Reply

      @Jay M Democrats are changing the makeup and layout of the court. That has never been done. What’s the precedent for such actions?

      How did Republicans both steal a seat from Obama (sitting president at the time) AND Biden (a mere candidate, not currently in office).

      You can’t steal something from someone who hasn’t been elected yet…nice try.

    • These debates continue to prove exactly why I am #JadeSimmons4President http://www.facebook.com/operationrestoration2020 Americans deserve to know there are more options and the media needs to stop acting like we can’t make an educated decision when we are introduced to them all.

    • Republican Strategy:
      We kill 210,000 Grandmas and Grandpas but accused the other side of killing grandma.
      We coddle thugs with guns and accuse the other side of fomenting disorder.
      We stonewall the Senatorial confirmation process to pack the Supreme Court and accuse the other side of packing the Supreme Court.

    “That’s a good question. Let me start off by not answering the question.”

    • @Godsbackhand7 there’s no set number of supreme court justices.

    • Republicans are the biggest hypocrites on the planet. They are going forward with this nomination knowing they are breaking their word from 2016.

      Elections do have consequences..watch.

    • @Jack Lantern well I wasn’t one of those Republicans saying anything about the supreme court pick. I had no clue what it was about. Clear the had the right to do it in both accounts and it seems that if someone wanted to pack the court, they can.

    • adam adam yeah. Basically the Democrats aren’t given a voice in the decision of should replace RBG. So I think…if their opinion will not be considered at all in this matter…then they have the right to withhold their intentions with the Court. It’s like…hey…you don’t want my opinion..alright fine…and their silence is killing the Republicans who want to use it for political leverage.

      It’s a game of chess. You want to be the last person who says “Checkmate”.

    • @Jack Lantern either way, both parties would do the same thing. Democrats though will go further. Did you see the impeachment crap and Russia hoax/witch hunt.

  17. “I’m so glad we went through a little history lesson…” GTFO!!!

  18. I wonder who the FLY was. That saying, I’d love to be a FLY on the wall, except this Fly wanted to be up close and personal. Anytime a fly lands, they poop. So whoever that fly is, it just crapped on Pence’s head.

    I´m surprised that CNN uploaded this clip

  20. Kamala absolutely refused to answer.. wtf ?? I’m embarrassed as a democrat..

    • @Reedy777 that doesn’t change tha fact that you aren’t god u don’t know anything but the one thing we know for sure is that you are “imbarrasing”.

    • Not once has joe or Kamala say they are packing the courts. This isn’t their issue so there’s no reason to answer to these conspiracy theories.

    • Jack Lantern Why no answer then? I simple yes or no would suffice. Very concerning when they say they are not going to answer the question. And then we’re gonna trust them as our president and Vice President ?? As Joe would say, come on man

    • Jake Waldman well I would say…if the Senate is willing to go full steam ahead on the court pick and not give a damn about what the Democrats think or value any of their opinions..then I would say the Democrats have the right to keep their court packing opinion to themselves.

      It’s not really the American people that want to know. It’s the Politicians who want to use it as a talking point heading into the election.
