Vice presidential fact check: Daniel Dale selects his lie of the night

Vice President Mike Pence echoed some of President Donald Trump’s most common falsehoods and misleading statements during the lone vice presidential debate with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) — though in a more restrained, neatly packaged way.
The Salt Lake City debate was a less chaotic affair when compared to September’s first meeting between Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. But there were traces of that event in Pence’s delivery of some of the same lines that the President often repeats.
Harris, too, made some claims that were misleading or lacked context, but those paled in comparison to the litany of statements from Pence that were either untrue or needed additional context.
Coronavirus and the Trump administration’s response dominated the start of the debate and was referenced throughout, and the threat of the virus — due to the plexiglass barriers separating each desk — was apparent before either candidate spoke a word. The rivals also argued over economic recovery, the future of health care in America and the importance of tackling the climate crisis.

    Kamala got toasted in that Debate. All she could do was make weird faces and lie. Before – Would you ban Fracking "Absolutely" Now – would you ban Fracking "Absolutely Not" lol. Get out of here people. That was A blatant LIE and you all know it but your gonna sit here and pretend like she didnt Lie over and over again. Wouldn't answer whether she'd pack the court or not. Just sat their rambling and avoiding the question. Who do people take us for, idiots. None of you people wanted Kamala and denounced her now all of the sudden shes your queen to drool over??? 🤣🤣🤣. Im laughing at the desperation of Democrats. But hey dont worry, it will all be over soon when Trumps reelected. Biden can crawl back under his rock and kamala under one similar

    Thanks for pointing out the fact checks for BOTH OF THEM. With that said, Pence was absolutely pitiful. He filled his time (and some additional time) with talking points and deflection. It was atrocious 🤣

    I was so glad Kamala mentioned how much food insecurity is in the USA due to the Covid19 pandemic. Pence had the nerve to say that the Obama Administration had a slow recovery! That recovery is why his administration was able to prosper; but look how the Republicans overturned & squandered every possible gain inherited by the Obama administration (example) CDC China team of experts, Climate accord and the Iran Nuclear etc. etc. This administration is the perfect example of “Poor leadership”

    This deal with the ventilators is true
    Mr Trump's son in-law said that they enjoyed watching the state's fight and bidding on them and other medical supplies
    These people can't tell the truth
    I didn't want to believe it
    But it's being told again
    They had medical supplies and didn't even try to send them ASAP
    I couldn't even stand to listen to the way the Vice President talked
    He looks terrible
    He's just as bad as Trump in everyway
    I had hoped he would try to tell the truth
    That could have been a really great moment in his life as well as the people of the United States
    This is like the worst nightmare
    And you can't wake up
    But it's real
    We need to vote
    Vote them OUT
    You're life and your families lives may depend on it
    Vote

    CNN absolutely sucks I can not decide who lies more the democrats or CNN. CNN's conduct is beyond shameful in every way. The media is suppose to report facts + keep the people informed but CNN completely fails on a explosive scale they are committing countless crimes against the people they are suppose to service. Like the the democrats if there was any justice many CNN reporters would have democrat representatives as a cellmates in prison. Almost all the MSM is disgusting it's beyond me how the MSM reporters can accept their paychecks or sleep at night
