Trump tweeted almost an hour into the debate that Pence was “doing GREAT!” He referred to Harris, a California senator, as “she” and called her “a gaffe machine.”
Mike Pence is doing GREAT! She is a gaffe machine.

Trump later claimed Pence had “WON BIG!”
Others asked if the president was watching the same debate as everyone else.
Mike Pence looked like an utter idiot trying to cover up your coronavirus debacle.

210,000+ dead from the pandemic that Mike Pence was supposed to manage. No one’s winning.
