Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic VP nominee Sen. Kamala Harris went head-to-head in Utah on Wednesday night (Oct. 7) for the only vice presidential debate of the campaign.
The debate is crucial, coming on the heels of President Donald Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis and subsequently a number of other positive test results among the White House. Furthermore, tonight is historic as Harris is the first Black and South Asian woman to participate in a general election debate.
Due to the fact that Pence was at an event that seemingly lead to the coronavirus spread in the White House, the VP and Harris stood far apart, using plexiglass as barriers between the candidates.
While discussing the pandemic, Trump’s taxes and more, celebrities fired up Twitter with reactions to the debate. See them below.
