Pence team objects to plexiglass barrier at VP debate

Pence team objects to plexiglass barrier at VP debate 1


Mike Pence does not want plexiglass barriers around him at the vice presidential debate against Kamala Harris, a top aide to the vice president told CNN, rebuffing an announcement from the Commission on Presidential debates that the dividers would be used to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
"We have yet to hear medical evidence what the plexiglass is for," Pence's chief of staff Marc Short told CNN.
The plexiglass dividers, which were announced by the commission on Monday night, were the latest in a string of changes made to ensure the virus is not spread at the debate as the White House deals with a growing number of infections inside Donald Trump's administration.
Physical barriers like plexiglass are typically recommended when social distancing cannot be maintained. The candidates will be separated by 12 feet on stage. Masks are considered the best defense against both droplet and aerosolized transmission of the virus.

    Plexiglass? Since Senator Harris IS a woman, you would think that ‘Mother’ would love this barrier.

  2. Of course, republicans want everyone to get infected.

    • I think Trump did a good job in the beginning with closing travel to china(Which he was criticized heavly for) but was a moron at handling it.Biden wouldnt have done or will do much better except he might kill jobs forever

      @Death Bone Try not to think to much. It might hurt

    • I was a Democrat right up until 2019 when I red pilled hard. The Rubin Report is amazing

    • @Jennifer Ellis And they’re trying to push for herd “immunity” lol ignorance will be their downfall. Smh can’t believe these morons are in the White House, at this point it’s like watching a cult.

    • @cheetoheadman Hey,If I may,if you believe conservatives are dumb then at least be on our side for making the government as small as possible so we have no power,Its liberals that make all the power and then get mad when conservatives get elected because now all that power you made is now ours,We harldy make power

  3. it’s really because he’s scared to debate her she will destroy him easily

      j hamo j hamo Bullies are essentially cowards and they crumble. Harris should be protected. Plus, she is going to wipe the floor with him.

      Pence and other members of the White House depend on the rapid Covid-19 tests that have a 14.8% failure rate.

      @Jerry Marasco Look at you afraid of a smart, strong, independent woman. That’s why you wrote that stupid comment.

    • @Jerry Marasco The pathetic and predictable ‘CNN’ trope has now become a meme in my head whenever I think of a Trump supporter. I occasionally even literally ‘laugh out loud’ whenever I see it mentioned.
      Umm also, not a ‘lib’/’leftie’/’Dem’, etc. – I’m a Canadian who happens to be married to a _real_ Republican (not a Trumplican) American.

    For the safety of the Moderator Pence must have plexiglass in front of him also.

    • @Scott Baruth Yep she has the edge. Not because of your racist reasons. Pence is an idiot. He fawns all over rumpski, is afraid of his own wife, he has been trying to kill people since the AIDS epidemic, the punk has no principles just like his boss and uses religion as a shield without the slightest idea what the bible is trying to convey. I’m an agnostic and even I am more christian than he is. He will get up there and try to do what rump did. He will use the same “talking points”. Well the few rump had when he wasn’t interrupting and carrying on like a child. He will deflect. He will blame everyone else for the state we are in during rumpski’s reign. He will of course talk up rump and repeat the party lies. He will add on, how rump has been fighting valiantly. Let’s see if he endorses the white nationalists and condemns anti fascism too.
      Pence is suppose to be in charge of covid and our safety. How pathetic is it, that he objects to a simple sheet of plexiglass. They should put the fucker in a sealed booth. He is suppose to be in quarantine since he was at that super spreader event, in the what used to be rose garden, for that judge.
      As far as the press they aren’t stupid they see rump for what he is. He shows us every day. He is a self centered child. He is in extreme denial of just how stupid he really is. He has shown us he doesn’t care if we live or die. He has tried to cancel health insurance twice now. Last time in the middle of this pandemic. No plan to replace it. He just told the Senate hold off on any corona relief package until after the election. He just told us in his last speech, Contagious, no mask playing the dictator. Don’t worry it’s no worse than the flu. So far it’s killed about 50 times what the flu kills in a year. They see the 25,000 lies told the 207,000 dead bodies. That’s not counting all the stupid, cruel, traitorous, war crimes, crimes against humanity this impeached president has committed. They aren’t stupid, he does all things on tape, in speeches and in interviews. He brags about his stupid deeds/crimes.
      So what is your deal? Were you dropped on your head when you were young? Raised by cannibals? How is it you see this poor excuse for a human being as good? Are you afraid of others who are different? Why do you think it’s OK to steal children and jail them? Why are you afraid of antifascism and embrace fascism? Why is free speech and the rest of the amendments only applied to right wingers? If a bunch of liberals showed up on a states capital steps armed and yelling in the cops faces, they would have been gassed and beaten. Anyone else is fake news, or a communist if you disagree with rump. He is the laughing stock of america and the rest of the world.

    • @Mark N I think I also would want that kind of protection since so many people who attended the rose garden event are testing positive. Saying masks are political and now a plexiglass is political is getting old.

      @Kristen D Good Idea. They don’t push the Corona virus There.

    • Because he knows it’s all a crock of sh##. Don’t believe what you see on TV look around you with your own eyes there really isn’t a corona virus. I live in a so called corona virus hot spot and don’t know any one that knows any one that has had it .

    • @Nancy J I’m sure you misunderstood Matt.

  6. Katie Miller, Pence’s press secretary, husband Stephen “the snake” Miller just showed up covid positive.

  7. At this point the whole GOP should be in a FEMA cage separated from their families and the rest of the world. Really when is enough enough?

      Wow, a cage is way too nice! How about an incinerator or a firing squad. And don’t forget about the 54 US Senators that refused the throw this no good scum wad out if power. They are just stench.

  8. COWARD! He’s trying to get out of debating her!!!

    “So you all know Katie Miller mocked Senator Harris but her husband has the Coronavirus

  10. Pence wants to show how tough and strong he is, but we know he’s been kneeling before Trump, groveling, for years now.

  11. Has no one ever heard of the phrase “better to be safe than sorry” …this is why America is flailing right now. Thanks Pence.

    • Some lol player 😂🤣😂🤣😂

      The failed education system….imagine they are running the country.
      I want the McDonald’s teenagers running this country instead of these stuffy old white dudes.

    • hillary Colen there’s nothing wrong with the education here, what’s wrong is parents expecting teachers to raise their kids while they make money.
      our priorities are all messed up. you learn about principles and values at home, not at school.
      also people can get a house and a nice truck without going to college, so they chose to stay ignorant because they can make a living out of mowing lawn and moving stuff around, it’s easier for them.

    • How many rights and freedoms will they take away in the interest of “safety”?

    • vshah1010 as it is a temporary situation, what does it matter? Wearing a mask is hardly a life changing problem. But because of all the supposed infringement complaints on your rights and lack of leadership we had to extend this issue far longer than it needed to be. If all the idiots would have just worn their freakin’ masks and stayed home like they were advised to do, this could have been in the rear view mirror long ago. Make adjustments and move on. Your “rights” don’t outweigh mine.

  12. Because he wants to be like tRump, how stupid and arrogant mike pence is.

    • “Poor kids are just as smart as white kids.”—Joe Biden😭

      There are now more Trump supporters at Biden Champaign rally’s than they are Biden supporters. What’s that tell you?

    • If she has plexiglass around her why would he need one? And if he has been tested negative why would they need to worry in the first place? They’re already distancing more and she’s got the glass around her so what’s the problem?

      Maybe they should wear space suits and be in 2 different states? This is so outragious!!! I can’t believe CNN is even covering this 😀

    • Does his wife object to the barrier?

      No he’s not a wuss

  13. “Hospitalization rates for the disease are declining all over the country, *said Pence, who heads the White House coronavirus task force.”*
    “In Texas — with a population of 29 million — and its largest city, Houston, a record number of hospitalizations are being reported.”

  14. Trumpf, the Schizophrenic:
    “If we stop testing right now, we’d have very few cases, if any.”

  15. Pence should be in quarantine and not participating in the debates right now. That would be appropriate behavior.

    These people are so irresponsible they shouldn’t even been asked they should just put up the Protections and the candidates will just have to deal with it

    This makes no sense—unless Mike Pence is afraid of debating Kanala Harris.

  19. The new Trumpshenko campaign slogan sweeping the nation: “He can’t protect the country. He couldn’t even protect himself.”

  20. Gayle Schaefer | October 6, 2020 at 9:39 PM | Reply

    With the covid-19 running rife in the White House, do they honestly think they have a right to object to our safety? Pence is a joke, just like his boss.
