  • It was a tough start for Mike Pence as he was forced to defend his record as head of the coronavirus task force, considering people were so scared he was a disease vector himself that they installed a plexiglass shield around him.

  • The American people have witnessed what is the greatest failure of any presidential administration in the history of our country.

  • Can you imagine if you knew on January 28th, as opposed to March 13th, what they knew, what you might have done to prepare?

  • They knew and they covered it up.

  • Wow!

  • Bold of Senator Harris to assume that President Trump can process information in less than a month and a half?

  • Absolutely.

  • Like any decent American, I think I would have simply stock power, more bullets and charming.

  • But she has a point now, Congressman, is it possible that Pence just got too busy with the other myriad of things vice presidents do to really focus in on this covert thing?

  • Well, he certainly didn't have a good explanation for the handling of Cove.

  • In 19 there are seven million Americans infected, 208,000 Americans have died.

  • One in five small businesses have closed, and they still don't have a plan to defeat the virus.

  • I think Camilla Harris made it very clear that she and Joe Biden have a very detailed plan to defeat this purpose virus to keep the American people safe.

  • And I do think Camilla made a valid point.

  • Americans could have had two extra months to practice screaming at an elderly Walmart greeter for offering them a squirt of hand sanitizer.

  • Well, come on, Pence is a baller for this.

  • It would have been easy to do a good job and show up.

  • Trump Pence knows his job is to not steal the spotlight by showing basic competence.

  • If you're dudes not playing wingman for you like that, steal his wallet and drop him off at the swamp to true to true.

  • You know, I was here in the arena and it was fierce right off the top.

  • Honestly, I was hoping for 10 minutes of small talk, just a warm things up.

  • But it no, it didn't happen.

  • Yeah, now moving on.

  • When Senator Harris was asked if she shared American skepticism about a covert vaccine, she took the risky stance of opting out of whatever cocktail of meds.

  • Trump inevitably dubs Trump Awesome Vaccine 3000.

  • If the public health professionals If Dr Fauci, if the doctors tell us that we should take it, I'll be the first in line to take it.

  • Absolutely.

  • But if Donald Trump tells us I should say that we should take it, I'm not taking it well.

  • Kamala Harris officially cemented herself to the American people as a pro science candidate.

  • Congressman, Is there any recovering from this blunder?

  • Yeah, no, it's It's absolutely true that the president has done everything he can to undermine the science.

  • He's really sidelined.

  • The public health professionals silence them when they have disagreed with him, or tried to be, or when they've been honest about the gravity of this pandemic and about the right way to respond to it.

  • And I think Senator Harris was absolutely right.

  • We need to ensure that this vaccine research proceeds as quickly as humanly possible, but it has to be left to the scientists.

  • Well, listen, Trump can do whatever he wants to me, And if he wants to be fancy and and call it a vaccine, more power to him, steal my molars in my sleep Mary, my wife, Whatever.

  • I'm not gonna be closed minded about it.

  • Absolutely.

  • You know, I'm I'm here in the arena on, and I'm pretty disappointed that neither candidate gave us any clue as to how long the vaccines syringes needles will be.

  • You know, some of us are single issue voters, and we don't know what to do.

  • That's right.

  • He passed out through his entire teen years after he saw a needle, but he's doing so good as our field correspondent.

  • And then Americans were reminded of an ancient story from 10 days ago that had mostly slipped their minds.

  • The fact that their president is a wildly indebted tax chief Joe Biden has been so incredibly transparent.

  • And certainly, by contrast, the president has not both in terms of health records, but also let's look at taxes.

  • We now know Donald Trump owes and is in debt for $400 million.

  • And just so everyone is clear when when we say in a lot of money, you owe money to somebody.

  • Look, we spent a solid two days discussing the fact that our president doesn't pay taxes, but now we've moved on to the fact that our president is likely dying and doing his job on mind altering steroids.

  • Look, let's be by.

  • Look, let bygones be guy.

  • Let let that let that happen.

  • Now, Congressman, do you remember this tax story?

  • I mean, I recall hearing something about this back.

  • I don't know.

  • Maybe, like, uh, like, 15 years ago, I I don't know if you help me out here.

  • Look, every year, Americans scrimp and save so they can meet their tax obligations.

  • And we learned that the present paid $750 for the past four years, much less than a schoolteacher of police officer of Firefighter.

  • He you know, he worked the system to avoid paying his fair share, which is consistent with the president has done.

  • The tax bill that he put forward was to help people at the very top helped rich people avoid paying their fair share.

  • Why hardworking middle class families, you know, pay more than their fair share.

  • Well, hold on a second.

  • I mean, how low is it of democrats to hit Trump on something like taxes while he has cove it?

  • Everyone knows Trump found God in the hospital, and now he lives a life of a Christian virtue.

  • Thank you, Tyler.

  • Now Mike Pence expressed hope that his party, recklessly jamming their Supreme Court justice nominee through before the election, would be met with the respect it deserved.

  • President Trump and I could not be more enthusiastic about the opportunity to see Judge Amy Coney Barrett become Justice Amy Coney Barrett and she's a brilliant woman, and she will bring a lifetime of experience and a sizeable American family to the Supreme Court of the United States.

  • And our hope is in the hearing next week, unlike Justice Kavanaugh received with treatment from you and others.

  • But we hope she gets a fair hearing.

  • Wow, my condolences to Merrick Garland's family of four who are sitting at home right now wondering if their father would be sitting on the bench right now if Onley they've been a little more sizable.

  • To be fair, it would be pretty messed up if the senator started questioning Amy Coney Barrett about Brett Kavanaugh sexual misconduct allegations, you know, if is that the plan, Congressman?

  • Well, I hope the plan is we should be thinking about the fairness of the American people.

  • Let's be very clear what this is about.

  • The president.

  • United States is in court right now, along with his Republican colleagues, in a piece of litigation intended to take away the Affordable care Act to have it declared unconstitutional, which will result in tens of millions of Americans losing their health coverage.

  • Millions of Americans with preexisting conditions seven million more, with Koven now losing their coverage and they're in court right now.

  • And what they want to do is because that oral argument is right after the election.

  • They want to ensure that another justices on the court to add to the votes to declare the CIA unconstitutional.

  • You know what I think about the way Justice Brett Kavanaugh was treated and his confirmation hearings?

  • My blood starts to boil like somebody just told me.

  • They don't think I could slam three gallons of orange crush in under five seconds, making a man talk about the evils he's done and be held accountable for it.

  • What What is this?

  • A tri als?

  • OK, this is ridiculous.

  • They need to at least hold off this confirmation until Christmas so that when Barrack it's confirmed, I could do a spit take with peppermint Schnapps absolutely.

  • Did they announce when Christmas is this year?

  • I'm pretty sure it's on a taco Tuesday this year.

  • Christmas on a taco Tuesday That only happens once every 200 years.

  • Now moving on Senator Calm like Obama, HLA Harris pressed pence on his administration's disregard for the safety of our brave men and women protecting the oil industry public reporting that Russia had bounties on the heads of American soldiers.

  • And you know what a bounty is?

  • It's somebody puts a price on your head, and they will pay it if you are killed.

  • And Donald Trump had talked at least six times to Vladimir Putin and never brought up the subject.

  • Joe Biden would never do that.

  • Yes, Joe Biden would never do anything.

  • Congressman, No matter what side of the warrior on, can't both parties at least come together on the disregard for human life?

  • Well, I think Senator Harris's point here is a really important one.

  • The president, United States, who likes to continue to say how much he reveres the military, learned of the bounties by the Russians on the heads of American soldiers.

  • He spoke to Vladimir Putin on six occasions, never even raised the issue on When this was reported in The New York Times, he said, Oh, I never read the report.

  • I didn't know anything about that.

  • But even from the date of that New York Times reporting, the president still has done nothing about it.

  • Well, hold on a second.

  • As someone with dozens of bounties on my head, Joe Biden has done absolutely nothing to help me.

  • And thank God it's just on my head and not the rest of my body.

  • I think we're all kind of missing.

  • The big issue here is it.

  • War isn't really it's that thing from the movies.

  • It's just that thing.

  • That's that's that exciting thing from the movies.

  • Everybody's got the thing and they're shooting at the other thing.

  • No people get on flights and they go to other countries and then we fight them.

  • Really?

  • Yeah, yeah, all right.

  • But that said it did come from the movies originally.

  • Alright, alright, coming up.

It was a tough start for Mike Pence as he was forced to defend his record as head of the coronavirus task force, considering people were so scared he was a disease vector himself that they installed a plexiglass shield around him.
