Pence’s plus-one hung-out briefly, then took on its own seemingly without being noticed by its host. It was a clear violation of the social distancing rules put in place for the debate, which included plexiglass shields between the candidates.
Former vice president Biden seized the moment as a fundraising opportunity.
“Pitch in $5 to help this campaign fly,” he tweeted alongside a photo of his flyswatter.
Throughout the debate, Pence was hard to stop once he got to ranting. Harris on at least one occasion shot the vice president a hard look when he interrupted and the moderator also asked him to remember the rules of discussion to which both parties had agreed.
Trump, who interrupted Biden during their disastrous debate last week, praised Pence’s performance.
“Mike Pence is doing GREAT!” he tweeted, claiming Harris was a “gaffe machine.”
