Vice presidential fact check: Daniel Dale selects his lie of the night

Vice presidential fact check: Daniel Dale selects his lie of the night 1

 

Vice President Mike Pence echoed some of President Donald Trump's most common falsehoods and misleading statements during the lone vice presidential debate with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) — though in a more restrained, neatly packaged way.
The Salt Lake City debate was a less chaotic affair when compared to September's first meeting between Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. But there were traces of that event in Pence's delivery of some of the same lines that the President often repeats.
Harris, too, made some claims that were misleading or lacked context, but those paled in comparison to the litany of statements from Pence that were either untrue or needed additional context.
Coronavirus and the Trump administration's response dominated the start of the debate and was referenced throughout, and the threat of the virus — due to the plexiglass barriers separating each desk — was apparent before either candidate spoke a word. The rivals also argued over economic recovery, the future of health care in America and the importance of tackling the climate crisis.

    Ain’t nothing more truthful than a CNN fact check 🤣🤣🤣

  4. Whenever a politician says “we have plans” it means they have NO plan.

    Hey Daniel you should be the moderator during the actual debate with the ability to call either one of them on what is or isn’t lies. Now that would be interesting 😂😂

    Fracking is extremely harmful for the environment. I would be happy if either party banned it.

    • Andy Ferguson The Republican Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis banned fracking in his state, so people should think carefully.

    • Naw fracking helps create jobs which leads to restaurants being kept open grocery stores being full etc. Just cuz it’s bad for the environment doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it.

    • Bob John If it affects the water that we drink and irrigate with (which could affect the plants sold at those grocery stores), then we should reconsider.

    • THE JACK HQ I’m gonna be honest after the 6 months we just had these “professionals” really shouldn’t be trusted

    • Bob John I understand. The lockdown protocols could have been more consistent here in Michigan, for example, so I know how you feel.

  8. Pence said that and everyone in my room started laughing

  9. Its amazing that so many people thought that pence was confident but when you are lying you have to be.

    Even if it was empty, they have had 3+ year’s to restock it.

  16. Can I say that the moderator was even worst than Chris Wallace and we need to really find a strong speaker and literally turn off these mikes

  17. *A fly walks into a debate and says, “Is this stool taken?”.* 😂😅😲😍😜😛🤩😋🤣😷😘😝

  18. Fact checking should be in real time. The screen should turn red and the truth ticks across the bottom of the screen.

  19. I hope PENCE will see how he made a fool out of himself by lying the way he did to the American people Which beg whatever the administration is lying about or whatever can be believed.

  20. Give it up CNN you know come November 3rd You’ll be crying again.
