This is an unofficial transcript meant for reference. Accuracy is not guaranteed.
Its never crowded, because so few Brian Vice President MIKE Pence, Brian Vice President MIKE Pence, set to go head to head with Kamala Harris tonight. What can they learn from past debate? Performances? What can we learn? Lets ask presidential debate, coach, Brett, Odonnell, Brett, first off some of the tenets for vice presidents in the past, one of which you bring up is do no harm thats right. The first rule, for vice presidential debates is dont harm the ticket. So you are there to represent the top of the ticket. You are there to go after the other sides top of picket. You are there to defend your running mate, but you cant do harm, because obviously people dont vote because of vice presidents, but if you make them vote its usually because of bad news, Brian you say: pass the commander in chief test have to look like you could be itpresident attack. The other ticket here is an example of a moment
that Harris was prepared for and im sure she is prepared for something for something for MIKE Pence. This is a moment that really stood out listen. It was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators, who built their reputation and career on the segregation of race. You also worked with them to oppose busing. There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public school and she was bussed to school every day and that little girl was me Brian. He had no idea, she was going there. That was the moment even SNL picked up on that came out, but that was prepared right. Oh absolutely, they sold T shirts right after she delivered that little girl was me line. They had t shirts ready to sell. That said that little girl was me, and so it was a completely canned line.
It was her best moment in the debates, but across all of the debates she hasnt been as strong as she is being made out to be Brian. She is whip smart, great legal, mind she didnt Prethink, the major I of the day to her own record and candidacy. Now she has to memorize Joe Biden. She was in five of the eleven democratic primaries. You bring up MIKE Pence, the vice president, hasnt debated in four years when he did debate last time begins TIM Kaine. This is the moment you told to us pull listen. Did you all just hear that ours is an insult driven campaign? To be honest with you, if Donald Trump had said all the things that you have said, he said in the way you said he said them. He still wouldnt have a fraction of the insults that Hillary Clinton leveled when she said that Hazell of our supporters were a basket of
deplorables. She said they were irredeemable. They were not America, I mean its extraordinary Brian cant, say MIKE Pence wasnt ready for that they he KN they were going to attack the president personally. This is example of what a vice presidential candidate needs to do until AL debate. He is not there to represent or defend himself hes there to defend and go after the top of the other ticket. Hillary Clinton had called Trump supporters a basket of deplorables and Vice President Pence turned that into a great moment in the debate at the expense of TIM Kaine, Brian Brett, that you can about things. You can expect thats. When someone comes at you in a major debate and you could not defend your own record, she has to avoid this tulsi gabbard took her apart case in point watch. Senator Harris says she is proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she will be a prosecutor president, but im deeply concerned about
this record. I did the work of significantly reforming the criminal justice system of the state of forty million people, which became a national model for the work that needs to be done, and I am proud of that work. The bottom line is Senator Harris. When you were in a position to make a difference. An an impact in these peoples lives. You did not Brian. She went on to go specifically through cases in which evidence was withheld and decisions were made for political purports and Kamala Harris had no response, thats correct, and that is because she was playing in the details of defense whenever a candidate is forced backwards and defending specific tenets of their record thats, not a good thing. You want to be on offense and the problem for Kamala Harris across the debates. The reason her campaign failed is because she could never figure out how to play offense on issues. She could never figure out where she stood on issues, and so she ended up running to the left on
almost everything which is not true to herself Brian right, because the debate went off the rails last time we dont know how Joe Biden is going to defend his forty seven years as owe pose touted candidate. Is he pretending to be now now? He has to ask Kamala Harris to digest all of that in a month she has not done many introduce, so there is ainterviews. There is a lot on the line if he can get on offense. He.
