You can watch the whole debate right here AND follow tweets below where you’ll get a take on everything from the moderator’s questions and the candidates’ claims to fact checks and media spin to plexiglass separators and COVID testing to social media reactions.

According to ABC’s Rick Klein — Harris had more than 3 minutes more time than Pence.

Pence takes on Harris’ record of locking up black men…

Once again, Harris shares the “very fine people” lie Even Politifact shared the truth about what President Trump said after Charlottesville — BECAUSE IT’S IN THE TRANSCRIPT:

Trump: “Excuse me, excuse me. They didn’t put themselves — and you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. You had people in that group. Excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”

Reporter: “George Washington and Robert E. Lee are not the same.”

Trump: “George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down — excuse me, are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him?”

Reporter: “I do love Thomas Jefferson.”

Trump: “Okay, good. Are we going to take down the statue? Because he was a major slave owner. Now, are we going to take down his statue? So you know what, it’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people — and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists because they should be condemned totally — but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people. But you also had troublemakers, and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets, and with the baseball bats. You had a lot of bad people in the other group.”

Trump has — several times — condemned white supremacy

There have been many occasions, actually, in which the president denounced white supremacy.

There’s a fly on Pence’s head No one will pay attention to what Harris is saying as long as it stays there.

Glad Pence asked Harris about court packing. Pretty sure Susan Page wasn’t going to do it. The moderator will ask questions that fit her narrative and no others.

“Page forces the debate to move on. This is a joke.”

Nope. Kamala will NOT answer the question about packing the courts

Kamala Harris hasn’t wavered yet from the Biden campaign’s edict to NOT answer the question about packing the Supreme Court.

Jake Tapper probably isn’t too surprised.
