Following a contentious debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden, the number twos faced off Wednesday night as Vice President Mike Pence and Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, took the stage. While the two hit on hot topics, like Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis and handling of the pandemic as well as the economy, the biggest moment of the night belonged to Harris’ many reactions to her political opponent.
Despite the plexiglass barriers erected between the two politicians who convened at the University of Utah under strict COVID-19 protocols for a debate moderated by USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page, there was no escaping Harris’ strong rebuttals and raised eyebrows.
One of the most viral moments of the night included Harris’ empowering response to Pence when he tried to interrupt her early on in the debate. “Mr. President, I’m speaking,” the candidate said, shutting down Pence much to the delight of fans on Twitter. The response then became a recurring theme throughout the night as Harris had to make sure she got her full time to respond to Page’s questions.
“I’m speaking.” Yessssssssssssssss
