Of course Sarah Palin couldn’t resist reminding everyone that she had been involved, once…8 years ago in a Vice Presidential Debate. Instead of commenting on the issues debated, the performance of Kaine and Pence,or the questions selected by the host, Sarah chose to focus attention on her shoes and legs. Sarah Palin wrote on her Facebook post: “How is it that the dudes lucked out and got chairs over the last 20 years of VP debates minus one? Want a real test – try standing in 👠👠 for 90 mins#heelsonglovesoff“
The really amazing thing is that it didn’t occur to Sarah that Hillary Clinton had to stand for 90 minutes during the debate with Trump. Her shoes didn’t have heels as tall as Sarah’s, but then again Clinton was about 20 years older than Sarah when she debated. After the Clinton/Trump debate nobody was talking about the fact that Hillary had to stand for 90 minutes rather than standing. Nobody was focused on the shoes of either candidate.
Everyone was focused on the total decimation of Trump during the debate.
For those watching the debate last night, it was obvious that Tim Kaine was mad. Throughout the campaign Trump has tapped into the anger of the American people with his incendiary rhetoric. Kaine was mad at Trump for his attempt to anger the American public with his lies, his outrageous bigotry, his unconstitutional positions, and his dangerous foreign policies including the position that nuclear proliferation would be desirable.
Pence came across and calm and level headed. Even if you disagreed with his policies, he inspired confidence simply because of his demeanor. The funny thing is that Donald Trump highlighted the contrast between himself and Pence by Tweeting often during the debate. While Pence was working to be calm and stay composed on stage, and refuse to respond to Kaine’s allegations, Trump did the opposite. Trump was responding to the claims of Kaine by sending out hateful and emotionally charged Tweets throughout the debate. It was a constant reminder that the person on stage who was calm and Presidential in his demeanor was running on a ticket with a man who is emotionally volatile, unstable, and narcissistic. Whatever good Pence did, the Donald destroyed it.
Here a just a few examples of the tweets the Donald sent out:
