“Interruptionfest” VP Debate Ends in a Tie, Kaine Interrupted Pence a Whopping 39 Times

We suspect a few screens were broken after that debacle.

Just when you thought Lester Holt had troughed moderator incompetence, Elaine Quijano steals the show. Not only did she interrupt Mike Pence immeasurably many times but she consistently allowed Tim Kaine to interrupt his competitor and have the last word.


Perhaps this showed ‘weakness’ on Pence’s behalf but polls and post-debate discussions appear to show a slight bias to his lead as Kaine’s manner and repetitiveness seemed to rub many the wrong way.

Fox notes – Kaine Interrupted Pence 39 times, Pence Interrupted Kaine 19 times.

As MRCTV reports, CBS News’ Elaine Quijano repeatedly attacked Gov. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) during the 2016 vice presidential debate in Farmville, Va., on Tuesday.

The debate moderator criticized Pence for failing to answer questions when he was unable to get a word in with constant interruptions from Hillary Clinton’s running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.).

On the subject of immigration, in addition to her initial question, Quijano overstepped her role of moderator by pressing Pence on whether illegal immigrants would be “forcibly removed” under Trump’s plan.

“Governor, how would these millions of undocumented immigrants leave? Would they forcibly be removed?” she asked.

She appeared to support Sen. Kaine on his criticism of Trump, answering back to him, “right,” in agreement.

Kaine said, “This is important, Elaine. When a guy running for president will not support the troops, not support veterans, not support teachers…”

“Right,” Quijano responded, before Kaine even finished his remark.

Kaine went on to overrun the moderator, taking control of the debate by speaking over both Gov. Pence and Ms. Quijano.

The debate quickly became one-sided:

Quijano later stopped Pence short in his discussion of the Clinton Foundation even though Kaine had ample time to defend the charity and attack the Trump Foundation.

As CBS reports, a focus group being conducted by CBS News contributor Frank Luntz believes Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine is interrupting Republican nominee Mike Pence too much during the debate.
