Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris faced off in a heated debate on Wednesday, and in addition to an errant fly, social media users had a lot to say about the Democratic party candidate’s facial expressions.
The duo debated a number of issues, with the Covid-19 pandemic being a prominent topic, and Harris’s facial expressions while Pence defended the administration’s response sparked plenty of reactions on Twitter. The US has seen over 2.1 lakh deaths due to the virus so far, and among those who’ve tested for the virus include US President Donald Trump.
There were glares, smirks and side-eyes as the 55-year-old Harris listened to Pence speak.
And here’s how people reacted to photos of Harris:

The candidates participated in the debate at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, where they stood more than 12 feet apart and were separated by thick sheets of see-through plexiglass. The debate was held before a small, socially distanced audience.
