When will our president focus on the actual debate rather than making sarcastic little digs at his opponents?
We all know that Donald Trump and his campaign team aren't afraid of a little sarcasm now and again...
via: Getty43And they most certainly proved this last night at the vice-presidential debate by trolling Kamala Harris over her comments about the late rapper, Tupac.
Now, those who watched can agree that it was an explosive evening, to say the least!
via: GettyLast night, Harris 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...
via: GettyA 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 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...

However, Pence doesn't think our country has any racism issues.

And, of course, there were some more lighthearted moments, too.

And, of course...

Viewers relished when the California senate politely but firmly put Pence back in his place.

Harris kept her composure throughout the entire debate...
via: GettyBut this wasn't enough for her to be ultimately trolled by Trump and his team.
Our president is known for not missing a thing when it comes to his rivals...
via: GettyAnd this time around, he decided to use the late rapper Tupac against Harris.
Let's give you some context...
via: GettyA few weeks ago, Harris was asked in an interview, "Who is the greatest rapper alive?", to which she answered, "Tupac."
She quickly corrected herself...
Kamala Harris asked, who’s the best rapper alive? She answers @2PAC Then says “Not alive, I know, I keep doing th… https://t.co/8VhQnmc7I8— Emily (Larsen) Brooks (@Emily (Larsen) Brooks)1601070170.0
Little did Harris know that this was a golden opportunity for the president and his campaign team...
via: GettyAnd Trump decided to leave a ticket for Tupac at the VP debate last night, especially for Harris.
The pettiness is just too much...

But on the other hand, many found it "childish" and are clearly sick of the constant irrelevant arguing between these politicians.

Putting all jokes aside...
via: GettyIt's time for Trump and his team to start taking their campaign seriously because in twenty-seven days, we could potentially have someone new running and taking care of our country. Make sure to stay posted for further updates.
