Following Kamala Harris' savage takedown of Vice President Pence during their debate, it seems the Democratic challenger has struck a nerve with one Fox News contributor.
But his attack on Harris seems to have massively backfired...
Evidently, Harris has struck a nerve.
via: GettyThe Democratic vice presidential nominee put on one hell of a show at the first and only vice presidential debate of the year, but not everybody was too impressed...
And one of her biggest detractors?

Now, the vice-presidential debate was an explosive evening, to say the least.
via: GettyHarris went head-to-head with Trump’s Vice-President, Mike Pence, in the year's first and only vice presidential debate.
The pair debated twelve feet apart, with Plexiglass shields separating them...

However, concerns regarding the distance between the podiums were still rife throughout the night.
This is INSANE!! Move the damn podiums MUCH further apart! There’s no reason in the world to have @KamalaHarris sta… https://t.co/I7t1tEMl9b— Jon Cooper 🇺🇸 (@Jon Cooper 🇺🇸)1602073541.0
And many even believed that thanks to the virus, the whole debate should have been virtual...

Despite these concerns, however, the debate went ahead.
via: GettySusan Page, the Washington bureau chief of USA Today, moderated the event, which was dominated heavily by the coronavirus crisis, the very thing that hospitalized the President just days ago.
The virus became the main talking point of the event.
via: GettyIn the 90-minute live debate at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Harris accused Pence and the president of deliberately misleading Americans about the lethality of coronavirus. "They knew, and they covered it up."
However, Pence shot back by accusing the Biden-Harris campaign of copying the White House's pandemic strategy...
via: GettyReferring to a blunder that ended Biden's 1987 run for the presidency when he plagiarized a speech.
Page then quizzed Harris on whether she would be taking any government-approved vaccine in the run-up to the election...
via: GettyIn which Harris responded by stating firmly that she "would not take a jab touted by Mr. Trump without the say-so of medical professionals."
Of course, this didn't sit well with Pence, who heads the White House coronavirus task force.
via: GettyHe retorted: "The fact that you continue to undermine public confidence in a vaccine if the vaccine emerges during the Trump administration I think is unconscionable."
Putting the pandemic to one side, a whole array of other topics were brushed upon throughout the evening...

And, of course...

Firstly, viewers relished when the Californian senate politely - but firmly - put Pence back in his place.

However, there's one person who didn't find the whole thing to be iconic...
via: TwitterAnd that's Fox News contributor Harlan Hill.
He took to Twitter to share his issues with Harris.
via: GettyBut it seems to have rather savagely backfired on Hill himself ...
Hill took to Twitter to share his controversial opinions.
