The first and only vice-presidential debate was tonight, and while not as crazy as the presidential debate, it still exposed a lot of Trump and Pence’s lies.
The most obvious was regarding Russia.
When Tim Kaine accused Trump of praising Russian president Vladimir Putin as a “great leader,” Pence denied it and called Putin a “small and bullying leader.” But Trump has repeatedly praised Putin.
When Kaine said that Trump recently claimed Putin was not going into Ukraine, Pence denied it. But Trump did say, “He’s not going into Ukraine, OK, just so you understand. He’s not going to go into Ukraine, all right? You can mark it down. You can put it down. You can take it anywhere you want.” Putin took the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine in 2014.
So, it is CLEAR that Pence is lying. Will anyone care?
