If you had any question in your mind that Trump’s supporters were planning on declaring themselves the winner of every debate no matter what the outcome, here’s a little more evidence for you. The official site for the Republican national committee
The official site for the Republican national committee posted an article declaring Trump’s running mate the winner an hour and a half before either he or Tim Kaine took the stage. Proving that no matter what happened, or what the audience felt, they had already begun thinking of ways to spin the whole event into a win for Trump.
As I’m watching the actual debate now, the two candidates are doing about evenly, but if Pence is anything like Trump he’ll save his best gaffes for the last few minutes. Most notably, though Pence has outright lied about his candidate’s position on immigration and the amount of debt Trump intends to saddle the American people with. In any other political season being caught in so many lies would mean a clear win for the other side. But, like his presidential candidate, Pence just forged ahead refusing to acknowledge the questions of either his opponent or the moderator.
On a number of occasions Pence quietly laughed to himself as Kaine was speaking, as if to say that the points he was making about Donald Trump were just ridiculous. However, once it came time for him to respond to Kaine’s accusations he was often unable to explain what was so amusing. Trump really did say that John McCain wasn’t a war hero, he really has said disgusting things about Mexicans, Muslims and women, and no amount of school room snickering will simply erase that from the debate.
The most asinine and misleading moment was when Pence suggested that Clinton’s comment about the “Basket of Deplorables” was somehow more offensive than all of the other things his candidate has said over the last several months, to which Kaine hilariously responded that Trump cannot even argue with Miss Universe on Twitter without shooting himself in the foot.
I can’t wait to see how the GOP tries to spin this as a win now that they’ve already been caught spinning before the event took place.
