In a hilariously revealing moment, the Republican Party’s official website has decided to call the results of tonight’s vice presidential debate as a win for the GOP – two hours before the event!
Tonight’s debate between former Democratic vice-presidential candidate United States Senator Tim Kaine and Republican vice-presidential candidate, Indiana governor and religious extremist Mike Pence is set to kick off at 9 pm Eastern.
The Republican Party’s media team, however, jumped the gun and declared Pence the winner at around 7pm.
The incredibly vague statement highlighted just how little the Trump/Pence ticket has to run on, and spelled out for all to see what the homophobic Pence was going to focus on during the debate – lies about how President Obama has tanked the economy (he hasn’t) and cheap mud-slinging about Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s “scandals,” which have amounted to nothing but partisan witch-hunts.
Needless to say, Senator Kaine knows exactly what to brush up on before he hits the stage tonight. This is just one more indication of how deep the dysfunction and unprofessionalism runs through Donald Trump’s Republican machine – but we can thank them for a laugh before Kaine skewers Pence on Trump’s campaign of lies and bigotry.
