Looking at the VP debate

Michael Reagan on

The Kamala Harris-Mike Pence death match will go down in history as another forgettable vice presidential debate, but it had its pluses.

It showed us two important things we already knew.

It showed us that Vice President Pence is a smart, sober and able defender of Donald Trump and his record at home and overseas.

And it showed us that Sen. Harris is an empty pants suit who likes to laugh and smirk, play the race and gender cards, hide her own leftwing politics and blame the Trump administration for everything that’s wrong with the world.

To be fair, her main job was to enforce the debate commission’s rigid rules and out-of-date format and prevent the VP debate from becoming another free-for-all like the Trump-Biden match.
