    Harris kept on LYING. Just like Biden. Two of the most lying politicians in the USA! Socialist-Democrat will only win by cheating. And by cheating, I believe that there will be a civil war to happen.

    She should have been done when she called herself Black. Yes. She is indeed a woman of color. But she is not Black, nor should she claim to be. Right there tells you something about her deceitful nature.

    Miss Harris wants to make everybody afraid that's not good in any leader in the plane that's what I saw and what I experienced from what she was saying and her expressions we must be afraid I'm not going to be afraid I have a faith in a higher power see is someone that lacks faith that likes to live in fear that would use fear to manipulate people and that's what she would do to the American people FC ever became president of the United States which would be dangerous

    The entire CBC organization is corrupt to the core. they push the socialist anti-American agenda and betray the canadians that are forced to finance their scandalous and pathetic reporting. they should hang for treason beside the entire liberal party.

    This isn't the actual science for body language. They're going too much on "How does it feel" rather than reading how the tones, the stares, and small physical gestures translate into their emotions.

    This is falsified.

    Senator Harris was better than polite, moderator had no control over Mr. Pences MOUTH and rudeness. Can NO ONE control those 2 ignorant men, and teach them how to speak to woman, powerful woman with some modicum or respect.

    Watched the entire debate, it's clear that Pence knew what he was talking about, did not shy away from tough questions, provided details and facts in his answers. Harris avoided questions multiple times, lied often on many subjects, misled with her responses, was rude, dismissive and used inflammatory language. Not presidential. Pence won, no debating that.

    It's so easy to spot a liberal. All they look for is control. It took less than a minute before I'd had enough of this pinhead. People don't need to be controlled. Move to Russia.

    Did we watch the same debate? Pence won by a landslide. FYI: The moderator Susan Page to release Nancy Pelosi biography in April 2021 "Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power". All Dem moderators, and they'll still lose.

    There are more interesting body language experts out there. These people are clowns. Trump will get re-elected and these hate mongers will ensure his victory.

    Lets show the best footage of Kamala and compare it to random pictures of pence …. not a fair comparison Mr.Bowden…

    Yeh. It was easy to see Harris is a disrespectful, mediocre, lying, arrogant witch. She's insufferable. She also has a record as a prosecutor that was vicious against low income people. She would be a total disaster for America.
