    I always believed that in a debate both get to answer the same query . Not you get this and I’ll form this question for you .

  2. You were way to meek.

    I think she did a great job keeping the interruptions to a minimum.

    • She could have done more, although Pence didn’t seem to understand that “Thank you Mr. Vice President” means stop talking. Great values Pence! A woman says ‘no’ or ‘stop’ and a man ignores her.

    • @Bryan Gold do you people even believe in man and woman? Gender fluid million genders and all that.

  4. Remember that saving money is not another income, I have been following Mr Jerry Wilson instructions on Investment and it has really helped me, I couldn’t imagine my finance boost to this extent.

  7. She is a democrat..enough said..

  8. Did she seriously just say that especially VP Pence didn’t address the questions, was she even there? Both Harris and Biden have both been avoiding the question about packing the supreme court and the filibuster!!!

  9. worst moderator EVER.

  10. I think the fly was the highlight of Pence debate

  11. Susan Page was a disaster. Her coddling of Harris and interruptions of Pence helped neither candidate. She may say she was “honored” to be moderator. As Nancy Pelosi’s biographer, I questioned her ability to remain non-partisan, and she proved her incompetence. Where is Joe Rogan when ALL the people need him?

  12. Vocal fryyy made today’s American women unlistenable.

    You were scared and should not have been moderating anything.

    the vaunted usa today doesn’t know how to mike their participants. print journalists are investigators, not technicians. i reckon I can forgive them for trying and commend them for the effort.

  16. Buy silver and crypto
