Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will stand by our troops. They will not let them down like this administration has! #Debates2020— John Larson (@JohnLarsonCT) October 8, 2020
President Donald Trump does not give a damn about our military and it has been spoken about again and again. Mike "Gaslight" Pence is the second slickest liar in government today. #Debates2020— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) October 8, 2020
Wonder if we’ll find out from Mike Pence when Trump’s last negative test was….#Debates2020— Arianna Huffington (@ariannahuff) October 8, 2020
#CalamityHarris makes me sick much like how #HillaryClinton did in 2016. And her laugh EWW! Can you imagine listening to that laugh for 4 freaken years? Ugh! May as well stick a needle in my eye. #PenceHarrisDebate— Mr P (@glenp) October 8, 2020
Mike Pence is doing great. It’s a pity we don’t see more of him. He is the Trump campaign’s secret weapon. #PenceHarrisDebate— Miranda Devine (@mirandadevine) October 8, 2020
