Live Blog: VEEP Debatestakes 2020


Where would be without a live debate thread especially when it’s Kamala vs the guy who calls his wife mother?


So,  we will be following the debate antics.  Here’s the details:


9-10:30 PM EDT on ABC · CBS · FOX · NBC · PBS

Stream: C-SPAN · CBSN · ABC · NBC · PBS

Apps: ABC News · CBS News · CNN · Fox News · NBC News

Moderator: Susan Page

Location: University of Utah, Salt Lake City

Format: Nine segments of approximately 10 minutes each

And here’s the downlow:  “How to watch the vice presidential debate” by Caroline Linton of CBS.

Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic nominee Kamala Harris will meet for their first and only debate on Wednesday, October 7, at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Susan Page of USA Today will moderate, and Pence and Harris will be separated by a plexiglass barrier.

Campaign manager Bill Stepien and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, both of whom helped with Mr. Trump’s debate preparation, have tested positive for COVID-19, as well as Hope Hicks, counselor to President Trump. Christie also checked into the hospital for treatment. Chris Wallace, the moderator of the first debate, said Mr. Trump arrived too late to the debate site to be tested for COVID-19 there.

Pence has been tested multiple times since then, and he said the latest test, on Wednesday, was negative.

Harris announced on Friday that she and her husband, Doug Emhoff, had both tested negative for COVID-19. To limit travel, she arrived in Salt Lake City on Friday night. 

The candidates will be seated 12 feet away from each other. 


So, let’s see if she can make him cry!

    “Mr. Vice President, I’m speaking.”

  3. NW Luna says:

    Answer the damn question, Pence! We’re not talking about the American people’s response, we’re talking about *your* response.

  4. bostonboomer says:

    Pence keeps interrupting.

  5. NW Luna says:

    Pence *never* answers the questions!

    Kamala looks good — confident, comfortable.

    • NW Luna says:

      Oh, but she needs to answer this question too about have you talked to your running mate about how you’d handle responsibilities if he died or was very ill.

    Any woman who likes this Misogynist asshat should be shotgunned into Pelé

  7. bostonboomer says:

    Pence is so slimy. I can’t stand looking at him.

  8. NW Luna says:

    Ooooh! Hit ’em on the taxes!

  9. dakinikat says:

    Live fact check

  10. NW Luna says:

    Turn his mike off when he goes over!

  11. bostonboomer says:

    Someone in Twitter pointed out that Pence looks like he has pink eye. He will test positive soon.

  12. NW Luna says:

    “I’ve gotta have more time.”

    She’s not enforcing the time limits at all. Very disappointing.

  13. bostonboomer says:

    Interesting that Pence doesn’t want to talk about abortion.

  14. NW Luna says:

    Insect on Pence’s head.

  15. RonStill4Hills says:

    I will not be lectured to by thrift store Roger Sterling.

  16. NW Luna says:

    Bringing up Hillary again.

  17. NW Luna says:

    Yes, child, you do need to fight against racist sexist autocrats! You don’t “reach across the aisle” to them.

  18. NW Luna says:

    Kamala’s husband comes out with a mask! Mother Pence is bare-faced.

  19. RonStill4Hills says:

    He reminds me of Christopher Pike after the radiation accident in the Menagerie episode with the booty head Talosians.

    All that is missing is the blink yes/no light.

  20. MsMass says:

    Amusing comments about the fly:
    Was fly on the bingo card?

  21. MsMass says:

    Another: his only black friend.

  22. NW Luna says:


    • RonStill4Hills says:

      It’s official.

      Word just in from intrepid insect reporter Flit Flyweather, Mike Pence is officially a shithead.

      “I distinctly detected shit for brains and an abnormally elevated amount of stinking thinking,” said Flyweather, Bug News Network correspondent following his mid debate interview with Vice President Mike Pence.

      BTW – MSNBC is off the air again in my area. Coincidence? I think not.

  23. RonStill4Hills says:

    Pack the Court!!!!

    Add Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
