The Best Vice Presidential Debate Tweets That Captured The Night Perfectly

Roughly a week after President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden “debated” each other in Cleveland, their two running mates took the stage in Salt Lake City for the vice presidential debate. Back at the White House, the administration was scrambling to contain a growing number of positive COVID-19 cases on Capitol Hill. And because of Vice President Mike Pence’s interactions with multiple now-infected people, including Trump, the stage itself was a visible reminder of that chaos back home.

Pence sat 12 feet, 3 inches away from Sen. Kamala Harris, with a sheet of plexiglass between them. It’s been a point of contention all week, as Pence’s team found the additional plexiglass precaution unnecessary. The disagreement highlighted a stark difference between the campaigns: Whereas the Trump-Pence campaign had held indoor rallies, the Biden-Harris ticket had adhered to strict safety measures in small gatherings.

Online, celebrities took to Twitter to react to Pence and Harris in live time. Below, a round-up of musings and misgivings about the 90-minute sparring.
