2020 VP Debate: Notable Moments Part 1

The 2020 Vice Presidential Debate was October 7th between Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris. Compared to the First 2020 Presidential Debate, it was a snoozer, but in reality it was incredibly important for the American people to see that Vice President Pence is the calm to President Trump’s storm. It is also absolutely amazing to hear the plethora of relevant factoids Vice President Pence is able to store away and drop on a dime!

Vice President Pence eviscerated Senator Harris in this debate, and anyone who says otherwise is lying to themselves. Aside from Vice President Pence’s southern charm and systematically destroyed her arguments and crushed her lies; the Senator would have had to actually answer a question in order to win the debate, a feat which she was utterly unable to accomplish. Here’s a breakdown debunking Kamala’s lies, pointing out her inability to answer simple questions, and notable moments from Vice President Pence.

The Coronavirus Pandemic

The first question posed by moderator Susan Page of USA Today, “What would a Biden administration do in January and February that a Trump administration wouldn’t do? Would you impose new lockdowns for businesses and schools and hotspots, a federal mandate to wear masks?

You’d think this was a straightforward enough question, and could be answered in the same straightforward manner. However, Senator Harris danced around the question. After going on for a minute and a half about how incompetent the Trump administration was during the coronavirus outbreak, and repeating that The President played down the virus in efforts to keep the people calm, and how that is somehow a bad thing, she “answered” the question with saying that they would do exactly what the Trump administration is currently doing to combat the coronavirus:

“in spite of all of that, today, they still don’t have a plan. They still don’t have a plan. Well, Joe Biden does. And our plan is about what we need to do around a national strategy for contact tracing, for testing, for administration of the vaccine, and making sure that it will be free for all. That is the plan that Joe Biden has and that I have, knowing that we have to get a hold of what has been going on, and we need to save our country. And Joe Biden is the best leader to do that.”

Senator Kamala Harris

Again, Kamala starts talking about the 210,000 lives lost being the fault of The President, and the Woodward call that was leaked where The President lessened the amount of fear the American people felt at the start of the coronavirus. She then says, “the vice president said, when asked, “Well, why didn’t you all tell anybody?” He said, “Because the president wanted people to remain calm.,”” to Democrats it seems it was an unprecedented action for a president to keep We The People calm because they utilize the power of fear. In his rebut to Senator Harris’ claims that the Trump administration failed in the pandemic, Vice President Pence reminds her of the facts:

“But when you say it hasn’t worked… When Dr. Fauci, and Dr. Birx, and our medical experts came to us in the second week of March, they said, if the president didn’t take the unprecedented step of shutting down roughly half of the American economy, that we could lose 2.2 million Americans. That’s the reality.”

Vice President Mike Pence

Dr Fauci admitted proudly that it was he and Dr Birx who had The President shut down the economy:

Dr Birx had spoken to USA Today saying, “the projections by Dr. Anthony Fauci that U.S. deaths could range from 1.6 million to 2.2 million is a worst case scenario if the country did “nothing” to contain the outbreak”:

“The difference here is President Trump and I trust the American people to make choices in the best interest of their health. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris consistently talk about mandates, and not just mandates with the Coronavirus, but a government takeover of healthcare, the Green New Deal, all government control. We’re about freedom and respecting the freedom of the American people.

Vice President Mike Pence

This is true. Kamala Harris knows that she cannot legitimately deny any of that. Instead of defending the potential Harris-Biden Administration’s lack of respect for the Rights and freedoms of We The People, she attacked the Trump Administration with more baseless claims:

“Let’s talk about respecting the American people. You respect the American people when you tell them the truth. You respect the American people when you have the courage to be a leader.”

Senator Kamala Harris

Senator Harris was then asked a very straightforward question again, “If the Trump administration approves a vaccine before or after the election, should Americans take it, and would you take it?” She proceeded to answer with quite possible her most ridiculous remark of the night:

“If the public health professionals, if Dr. Fauci, if the doctors tell us that we should take it, I’ll be the first in line to take it, absolutely. But if Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, I’m not taking it.”

Senator Kamala Harris

This blew my mind. I’m finding her to be even less competent than before, which is a feat on its own, and it is absolutely mind-boggling that she would have such nonsensical drivel come forth from her awkwardly eager smiling mouth. I don’t know where she thinks The President gets information that he speaks on at his press briefings, such as the possibility of a SARS-CoV-2 vaccination being ready this year and advocating for it, but it seems as though she is unaware that it would be from the very same scientists and doctors that she places her trust in.

This is quite possibly her worst Orange Man Bad moment of the debate. As I write this I am still in utter disbelief that she would make such a statement, consciously or unconsciously, subtly encouraging her followers to not take it if The President says it is available.

Although the moderator wasn’t going to allow him to respond to Senator Harris’ comments about the vaccine, he politely decided to use his time, that was for a question regarding the possible disability of The President, for responding to her Orange Man Bad fearmongering:

“the fact that you continue to undermine public confidence in a vaccine, if the vaccine emerges during the Trump administration, I think is unconscionable. And Senator, I just ask you, stop playing politics with people’s lives. The reality is that we will have a vaccine, we believe, before the end of this year. And it will have the capacity to save countless American lives. And your continuous undermining of confidence in a vaccine is just, it’s unacceptable.”

Vice President Mike Pence

He continued on to clarify the differences between the H1N1 pandemic of the Obama-Biden administration in 2009 to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic of the current Trump-Pence administration:

“And let me also say, the reality is, when you talk about failure in this administration, we actually do know what failure looks like in a pandemic. It was 2009. The Swine flu arrived in the United States. Thankfully, it ended up not being as lethal as the Coronavirus. But before the end of the year, when Joe Biden was Vice President of the United States, not seven and a half million people contracted the Swine flu, 60 million Americans contracted the Swine flu. If the Swine flu had been as lethal as the Coronavirus in 2009 when Joe Biden was Vice President, we would have lost 2 million American lives.”

The Issue of Presidential Disability

Next, Susan Page asked of Senator Harris, “have you had a conversation or reached an agreement with Vice President Biden about safeguards or procedures when it comes to the issue of presidential disability? And if not, and if you win the election next month, do you think you should?”

It seems to be, if they have to ask this question, wouldn’t Democrat voters feel cheated or insulted by the whole presidential nomination of Former Vice President Joe Biden?

Either way, Kamala dodged yet another question, this time with a detailed two-minute autobiography starting from receiving the phone call to be Vice Presidential Nominee, to her birth, to being District Attorney, to Attorney General, to Senator, and so on, making sure to mention her race multiple times (as if it is relevant to anything past her VP nomination). Nowhere did she enter the realm of even remotely answering the question though vital to know being that Joe Biden is an elderly, frail old man of nearly 80, and has already past the average life expectancy.

Asked another loaded question, “in recent days, President Trump’s doctors have given misleading answers, or refused to answer basic questions about his health. And my question to each of you in turn is, is this information voters deserve to know?” Vice President Pence answered quite eloquently:

The American people have a right to know about the health and well-being of their president, and we’ll continue to do that. But I’m just extremely grateful and was more than a little moved by the broad and bipartisan support. And Senator, I want to thank you and Joe Biden for your expressions and genuine concern. And I also want to congratulate you, as I did on that phone call, on the historic nature of your nomination.”

Ironically, the only question she kind of answered was full of lies. She was asked, “do voters have a right to know more detailed health information about presidential candidates and especially about presidents, especially when they’re facing some kind of challenge?” Especially considering his clear cognitive decline, there is a disturbing lack of evidence showing otherwise, and contrary to the reply she gives, I have not been aware of any sort of medical records of Biden released to the public, but she then promptly switches subjects to President Trump’s taxes:

“Absolutely. And that’s why Joe Biden has been so incredibly transparent. And certainly by contrast that the President has not, both in terms of health records, but also let’s look at taxes.”

Senator Kamala Harris

Vice President Pence was quick to defend The President’s honor and transparency while accurately debunking the myth that President Trump only paid $750 in taxes, the fact is that it is stated in the same article from the New York Times that Donald Trump paid tens of millions of dollars in taxes those years, but like any good businessman, he had good accountants who sought after the most deductions and tax credits, leaving the income tax at a ridiculously low dollar amount when taking those into account. The Vice President said:

“The American people have a president who was a businessman, he’s a job creator. Who’s paid tens of millions of dollars in taxes, payroll taxes, property taxes. He’s created tens of thousands of American jobs. And the President said those public reports are not accurate. And the President’s also released literally stacks of financial disclosures the American people can review just as the law allows.”
