Mike Pence's Eye Got A Lot of Attention During The Vice Presidential Debate | 22 Words

Last night's VP debate resulted in some serious drama, but now, the one only thing stealing people's attention is Mike Pence's eye ... Twitter just can't get enough and neither can we.

Have a look for yourselves...

Last night, Democratic challenger, Kamala Harris, and Trump’s Vice-president, Mike Pence, went head-to-head in the year's first and only vice presidential debate.

Following the explosive debut presidential debate almost 2 weeks ago, the vice nominees have now had their say.

It's better to be safe than sorry at this point. A health and safety precaution requested by the Biden-Harris campaign, the Associated Press reported.

However, concerns regarding the distance between the podiums were still rife.

Many are worried about Pence's exposure to the virus, considering the President was infected just a few days ago.

Many even believe that, thanks to the virus, the whole debate should have been virtual...

As should all future debates planned for this year.

Which was dominated heavily by the coronavirus crisis, the very thing that hospitalized the President just days ago.

And weirdly enough, fracking too.

If I had a dollar for the number of times that word was mentioned, I would be a millionaire by now, but we'll discuss that later.

First, let's meet our candidates, and get a little bit of an insight into their game plans.

These strategies have been well-thought-out and designed to make their opponent surrender, but... It never really works out that way, does it?

Standing for the Republicans, we have the current vice president, Mike Pence.

Pence, a socially conservative Christian from the midwest, had been rehearsing for the debate with Pam Bondi, the former attorney general of Florida, playing the role of the Democratic candidate, the Axios website reported.

It is believed that Pence had a swift plan of attack...

And some of his preparation has involved developing ways to strike his female opponent "without opening himself up to criticism that he is acting in a disrespectful or sexist way," according to NBC News.

And, for the Democrats, we have Kamala Harris.

Harris, a former criminal prosecutor and progressive Californian, is widely considered to be a formidable debater.

Harris won rave reviews for her performance in an early Democratic debate when she criticized Biden for his record on race...

So, last night, people were expecting a real show.

Axios reported that Harris is similarly planned to go in on the attack...

And it was anticipated that she would rebuke both Trump and Pence over their response to coronavirus, healthcare, and beyond.

The California senator had apparently “planned a handful of anti-Trump zingers"...

But, given the President’s ill-health, she toned it down.

Well, everything except her facial expressions.

Those were far and plenty throughout the debate and you know what? We absolutely loved them. There were candid smirks, side-eyes, and straight-up "what the f*** are you talking about Pence?" eyebrow raises.

And we can't forget about the eye rolls, can we?

Throughout the debate, the candidates discussed various topics, from the pandemic and healthcare, all the way to science and... Fracking?

At one point, Pence even said that Harris and Biden were "playing with people's lives..."

And that made people raise a few eyebrows considering the President's back-and-forth nature throughout this entire pandemic. Does it exist? Is it a hoax? Should we wear masks? Should we not?

But it didn't matter about all the drama, because people were only talking about Mike Pence's suspicious eyes ...

And honestly, we can see why.

So - is it COVID-related?

Well, it seems the professional opinion is no - but the jury is still out! Want more from the presidential election? Scroll on ...
