'Pence Was Defending Something That's Nothing Like What We've Lived Through' | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC 1

 

Rachel Maddow reacts to the first and only 2020 vice presidential debate between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence, describing it as "like a visit to normal politicsland," but noting that since the Trump administration does not represent that normalcy, Pence's answers were incongruous with reality.

  1. The fly won the debate, and got infected with a coronavirus by Mike Pence.

  2. The fly had a more truthful night than Pounce did. The moderator was terrible and needed to fact check them

    • @Tidbit I’m legit having trouble finding what you just sent. I click on the hyperlink and brings me to a home screen. How do I get to the articles?

      yes! ms. page was a total toad! i have never paid to read USA today…now i know why they are free at hotels! she let him rave on and kept trying to stop kamala!

    • What did we learn last night about the Harris/Biden ticket?
      1. They were for fracking, before they were against fracking, before they were for fracking.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4_2ynjacFI
      2. Harris told a bald face lie about Honest Abe. (and a whole bunch more lies)
      3. The Charlottesville hoax/lie and partial quote will never die.
      4. Repealing a tax cut and raising taxes isn’t a tax increase.
      5. That if Biden had been POTUS 60 million people would have been infected and 2.5 million would be dead from covid-19
      5. Harris/Biden will pack the SCOTUS.
      6. If you are left of Bernie you have to be a communist.
      7. Biden passed a law that disproportionately punished minorities and Harris enforced the law that disproportionately punished minorities.
      8. That ¾ of Hispanic voters and undecided voters KNOW Pence won.

    • @Marshall Ray i know this is off topic but I know both parties agree anti vaxxers are crazy

    • The moderator, being female, took a lot of rude interruptions from Pence, as did Harris. Calling one’s own wife “Mother” in the year 2020 and not allowing oneself to take a business meeting with a woman shows a really unhealthy relationship with almost exactly half of the world.

  3. All I heard from pence was blah blah blah, the fly was the best part, it was attracted to all the💩💩💩💩💩 that was coming out if penny boys mouth

  4. That fly on Pence’s head was a symbol of pestilence. It was naturally attracted to the rotting stench of death and disease coming from Trump’s White House and administration.

    • Exactly why it was getting away from harris….

    • Yes, spiritual pestilence. It can also mean a pernicious and malign influence that is hard to get rid of. That influence for Pence is Trump who has a cognitive factor that effects what Pence does. Trumps aura has great influence on his thinking. As the bible states bad company corrupts good character. Also, Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on the law he meditates day and night.

    • @Beatrice M Indeed…

    • What else got you interested other than a fly?

    • That fly was you.

  5. Trumpers will think Pence won the debate, because they are ignorant of the fact that Pence is telling lies and spreading misinformation.

    • John Afolabi what lies did he say? Go ahead we have time for you to respond to this empty claim 🙂

    • Writewood Creations | October 8, 2020 at 8:31 AM | Reply

      @C F You haven’t “proven” anything. All you did was list a bunch of talking points and labeled them lies. It’s easy, watch: Pence lied about the administration’s handling of Covid-19, he lied about Donny’s tax evasion, he lied about who Donny owes 421mill to, he lied about Donny’s threat to national security, he lied about Donny’s IQ, he lied about Donny’s fidelity, he lied about Donny’s lies, he lied about Donny’s foreign policy success, he lied about winning the trade war, he lied about the massive tax break handed the uber-rich, he lied about 500billion in Covid relief being siphoned off by Donny’s cabal and their cronies, he lied about the insider trading, he lied about the Russian’s interfering in the election and the administrations efforts to cover it up, he lied about active measures to suppress the vote, he lied about Bill Barr working on the taxpayer’s dime to be Trump’s personal lawyer, he lied about Donny not condemning bounties on US troops, he lied about Donny calling soldiers suckers and losers, he lied about guts made to the EPA which imperils the food chain, he lied about babies being tried in court on orders from Herr Rosenstein, he lied about Donny’s actions imperiling the future of the US dollar and US democracy itself.
      There’s more, but you get the idea.

    • Just Me I’m waiting for that list 🙂 Go ahead. Harris lied about fracking tonight as well as the reversal of tax cuts 🙄. I can keep going but given you’re a leftie you wouldn’t be able to handle a bunch of facts. You simply hate trump because he’s actually productive in the WH. A con artist is biden and Harris. Biden can’t even quote the Declaration of Independence or the pledge of allegiance. You want that guy as president? News flash facts don’t care about your feelings

    • John Afolabi what lies? Please tell because Harris lied a lot! 🙂 Thanks for proving my point

    • @Just Me not worth replying to them. not worth feeding the fire.

  9. Pence- Lord of the Flies! Well that’s the way the GOP acts

    • @Erick Janes , Blocking through a legal process is not the same as totally DESTROYING would be evidence.
      And you wonder why no matter how much you say Trump is bad it does not work?
      Impeached and found NOT GUILTY.

    • @ASR not guilty? Plenty of evidence. Plus a heavy sided Senate majority leader in Republican side. Not buying it

    • @Erick Janes , Statements of someone’s INTERPRETATION of events, contradicting both end of the party that were involved is not an acceptable evidence except in a Democrat congress against their political rival. Plus, we know now it is Hunter Biden that did some questionable wheeling and dealing that made him some good $$$ while Biden was the VP in Ukraine.
      Sounds to me an alarm was sounded that Trump is looking into it so a grand cover up and spin was made.
      That is what you are defending and bought into.

    • @ASR blah blah blah, that’s all I hear from your brainless Trump supporters.

    The fly was attracted to the rotting corpse that was the Republican Party.

    • Baby Teano Russian collision has already been debunked to death

    • @Cole Pratt If by ‘debunked’ you mean proven to have happened between Trump’s campaign and Russian operatives, then sure. Bi-partisan, republican lead Senate Committee released their report recently and it says it happened, so. . . yeah.

    • Tidbit No, Mueller report found no evidence of collusion other than some pro Trump Russian Facebook ads and now we’ve revealed that Hillary Clinton came up with the hoax to distract from her emails

    • @Cole Pratt Do you know what “Obstruction” means? It means that Mueller was blocked, by Trump, from finishing his investigation. How many times was he obstructed? 11 times. Why don’t you go read the latest Senate Committee report that shows proof of collusion instead of referencing the 2 year old Mueller report? It is now an established fact that Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian operatives. Hillary had nothing to do with the Special Council, or the further investigations into Russian collusion; what you’re reading is called fake news, go ahead, cite your source if you have one.

    • Agree, angels descent from heaven in any form. I just feel bad for the angel/fly, it was trapped in pence hair who only had 4 litters of hair spray.

    • @Marshall Ray look people will vote for Biden and Harris regardless, Anything is better then this two lairs that we currently have in the administration.

    • @Dave sounds like a load of crap to me..

    • @weeral1 well when it’s a psychotic conspiracy theory, and the craziness just gets more and more unreasonable and crazier… it’s kind of hard to not call crap crap especially when these nutt cases throw out these accusations against the left that have never been proven remotely accurate.

    • @Andy Smitty such as?

    • @weeral1 the senate worked this over for 3 years and have never come up with anything proving anything illegal by the prior administration much less Hillary. Nothing but a few words put out by these committees that suggest just enough for conspiracy nutts to grab and run with the twisted manipulation as of it were cold hard facts of damnation. If any of it were true wouldn’t you think that one of Barr would of prosecuted by now? It’s been 4 years and a nothing-burger at best. It’s like the Benghazi investigation, 120+ million dollars spent and not one illegal charge. Yes that’s right, 4 times the amount spent trying to nail Hillary then was spent arresting and convicting what are we up to 14 people from the Trump circle?

  20. 1. Pence says “we trust the American people to deal with the pandemic”. That is not leadership. It’s the exact reason things have gotten worse. Half the country refuses to wear masks and social distance.
    2. Pence says “we will have a vaccine in record time”. This is why half the country say they will not take it. No one wants to be a genie pig for drugs that have not been thoroughly tested on every demographic.
    3. Pence says “from day one we have put the health of the American people first”. No, day one was in February. At that time Trump told us it was a hoax.
    4. Pence says “we will listen to the scientists”. When? So far Trump has discredited the scientists and even directed the CDC to change its guidelines.
    5. Pence engages in “what if ism” when he speculates “if” the Swine Flu was as lethal as Covid. Well, it wasn’t as lethal so why is he bringing up a flu season that happened 11 years ago?
    6. Pence quotes Dr. Fauci on the speculation of how many lives were saved by the China travel ban. But he conveniently failed to mention all the other things Fauci has said that contradict what he and Trump has said.
    7. Flies can always find a nice pile of sh!t to feed off of….and one such fly found a pile of sh!t with gray hair on top of it.
