Pence’s Debate Fly Breaks the Internet, Spawning a Thousand Memes

Wednesday night’s debate between vice president Mike Pence and Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris covered a lot of ground, but the ground that dominated debate buzz was the stiff- silvery helmet of hair on Pence’s head as a fly landed on it and stayed there for two minutes and three seconds. Biden even fundraised off of it.

Pence Dodges Question on Peaceful Transfer of Power: WATCH

Vice President Mike Pence dodged a question about what he “would personally do” if “Biden is declared the winner and President Trump refuses to accept a peaceful transfer of power.”

Said Pence: “First and foremost, I think we’re going to win this election. … When you talk about accepting the outcome of the election, I must tell you, Senator, your party has spent the last three and a half years trying to overturn the results of the last election. It’s amazing. When Joe Biden was vice president of the United States the FBI actually spied on President Trump and my campaign. … We’ve all seen the avalanche what you put the country through for the better part of three years until you found there was no collusion, no obstruction, case closed…”

Fact-check: There has been no evidence that Obama spied on Trump’s campaign.

Pete Buttigieg Drops the Mic on Pence in FOX News Pre-Debate Interview: WATCH

Pete Buttigieg showed why he was chosen to stand-in for Mike Pence for Kamala Harris’s debate preparation, in an appearance on FOX News Wednesday night. Buttigieg was grilled about Harris’s position on Medicare but did a quick about face to nail Pence for his hypocrisy.

Said Buttigieg: “There’s a classic parlor game of trying to find a little bit of daylight between running mates. And if people want to play that game, we could look into why an evangelical Christian like Mike Pence wants to be on a ticket with a president caught with a porn star … or how he feels about the immigration policy he called unconstitutional before he decided to team up with Donald Trump. If folks want to play that game we can do it all night but I think what most Americans want to hear about is are our families going to be better protected than they have been by this president who has failed to secure America in the face of one of the most dangerous things ever to happen our country.”

Trump Says Catching Coronavirus Was ‘a Blessing from God’ — WATCH

trump blessing from god

Donald Trump tweeted a new propaganda video shot in the Rose Garden on Wednesday night, touting his health and the antibody drug cocktail from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals he credits it to.

Said Trump: “I feel great. I feel, like, perfect. … I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it. It was a blessing in disguise.  I caught it, I heard about this drug, I said let me take it. It was my suggestion.”

The Guardian reports: “The president also promised to bring the drug to the American people free, hawking it – falsely – as a ‘cure’. There is no cure for Covid-19. Hours later, Regeneron filed an application to the US Food and Drug Administration for emergency approval for the treatment, the New York Times reported. Following Trump’s video, stocks in the company climbed by 3.73% in after-hours trading. Trump has ties to Regeneron CEO Leonard Schleifer, who is a member of the president’s golf club in Westchester. Trump also used to own Regeneron shares, according to his 2017 filing with the Office of Government Ethics. However, the shares were not listed on his most recent filing.”

Trump is planning to return to the campaign trail as early as Monday.

Bloomberg reports: “It would be Trump’s first travel since he was diagnosed with the coronavirus on Oct. 1. The events are just tentative at this point and the plans are subject to change, the people said. Under the current planning, Trump would travel to Pennsylvania on Monday and Michigan on Tuesday. He’s scheduled to have his second debate against Democrat nominee Joe Biden in Miami on Oct. 15 in Miami. He could possibly hold a campaign event in the battleground state on Friday, the people said.”
