Tuesday night’s vice-presidential debate was fairly boring…but it did provide one notable comment.
Mike Pence made the most offensive comment of the night, and really got Twitter talking. After Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, again brought up Donald Trump’s provocative statements on immigration — including during his announcement speech when he said that some of the immigrants Mexico was sending were “rapists” and were “bringing crime” — Pence had apparently had enough.
“Senator, you whipped out that Mexican thing again,” Pence said.
Clinton’s campaign had claimed ThatMexicanThing.com by the night’s end, directing the domain to her site.
Let’s hear from Twitter, shall we?

I'm going to quit my job, buy a taco truck, and call it Whip Out That Mexican Thing.
