Mike Pence (Republican VP candidate) acted like a leader throughout the Vice Presidential debate last night. He focused on the issues. He did not stoop to fight back at the constant interruptions and attacks by Tim Kaine (the Democrat VP candidate), and stayed charming and leader-like throughout.
Tim Kaine interrupted so often it became very annoying to many viewers. Website FiveThirtyEight counted Kaine’s interruptions or interjections at more than 70, and Pence’s at just a little more than 40.
Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway accused Kaine of sexism for interrupting the moderator, CBS News anchor Elaine Quijano. “How many times has @TimKaine ignored and interrupted the female moderator tonight? #sexist,” she wrote on Twitter. This is fair – the media has accused Donald Trump of sexism for far less.
The Paladin found the VP debate more interesting than the Presidential debate last week. Watch the highlights here:
