Plexiglass to separate Harris and Pence at VP debate

Source: Politico

The Commission on Presidential Debates has approved plans for plexiglass to be used in Wednesday’s vice presidential debate amid mounting concerns about coronavirus transmission, according to two people familiar with the discussions.

Plexiglass is expected to be used as a barrier between Vice President Mike Pence and California Sen. Kamala Harris, as well as between the two candidates and moderator Susan Page. The plans have the support of the Cleveland Clinic, which is helping to set health protocols for the forums amid the pandemic.

The Pence and Harris teams have been negotiating the terms of the debate in recent days. Following Friday’s news that President Donald Trump had contracted Covid-19, the debate commission decided to move the two candidates seats from seven feet to 13 feet apart.

But the two camps were split over whether to erect a plexiglass barrier, according to people familiar with the talks. Harris' campaign supported it, Pence's opposed it.

Of course they did. They are all idiots who want EVERYONE to be infected.

9. Plus, I suspect they now see infecting Biden (via Harris or anyone else) as their best shot

In effect, an assassination.

19. There isn't much I'll put past these kleptocrats

Including the very origin of Covid-19 - which, thanks to the Times of Israel, we know Cheeto (or at least, his administration) was aware of by early November already.

No one's ever explained how or why that was, nor has the media ever bothered to ask (of course).

11. Of course he did. He is probably contagious; wants to give it to her.

And she is almost certainly not infected.

2. They are still mocking taking Covid-19 seriously.

Katie Miller had Covid herself. There is something wrong with these people. Every single one of them is a jerk.

6. Shouldn't "Mother" also be placed between them? Just in case Mikey is overcome with lust ...

in the presence of an attractive woman?

his behind.

12. Ya know, that hateful Katie Miller

Is a nasty nasty nasty piece of work. I knew she was a horrible person, (I mean who in gods name could be a good person and marry that Nazi Steven Miller) but after reading an article about them in the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine it kind of brought it home how completely awful she is. And the sick thing is that she revels in it. I feel so very sorry for their child. She is a perfect person to work for this disgusting administration.

13. I'd put up a fan to blow his aerosols away...

... from Harris too, but I doubt it happens. (Assuming it's a big venue.)

14. He repeated "Trump's broad shouldered leadership" again and again

in the 2016 election. I hope she reminds him of that.

20. This is great because it rubs the GOP's nose in the Covid issue and reminds everybody watching the

event of the consequences of Trump's criminal negligence in the handling of the pandemic.

After that...well I don't want a visit from Secret Service....

— to represent the Trump administration’s medieval attitude toward science.
