‘Rookie!’ — ‘Super PAC Puppet!’: Debate Devolves Into Yelling Match Between Vivek, Pence

The first Republican primary debate devolved into a yelling match between former Vice President Mike Pence and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy Wednesday night.

Fox News’ Bret Baier asked if Pence was part of the spending problem, noting an increased spending under the Trump administration.

Pence defended spending under the Trump administration, before invoking Ramaswamy.

“Vivek, you recently said a president can’t do everything. Well I’ve got news for you, Vivek … a president has to confront every crisis facing America. I will put our nation back on a path to growth and prosperity and restore fiscal responsibility, just as I did in Congress and as Governor and when I was Vice President.”

“This isn’t that complicated guys. Unlock American energy, drill, frack, burn coal, embrace nuclear. Put people back to work by no longer paying them more to stay at home,” Ramaswamy said. “I’m not sure I exactly understood Mike Pence’s comment but I’ll let you all parse it out. For me it’s pretty simple. That’s something a U.S. president can do with focus, and I’ll deliver it to you.”

“Well let me explain it to you, Vivek, if I can. I’ll go slower this time,” Pence quipped.

“You know I sometimes struggle with the reading comprehension,” Ramaswamy said sarcastically.

Pence touted his record of balancing budgets and cutting taxes before arguing, “now is not the job for on the job training.”

“We don’t need to bring in a rookie. We don’t need to bring in people without experience,” Pence said, prompting massive boo’s from the crowd as Ramaswamy laughed.

Baier and co-host Martha MacCallum had to quell the spat as Pence and Ramaswamy then yelled over one another before giving the floor to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

    Of course Trumps had to start spending money to get our military back to where it was after Obama and now the idiots who has no clue what he is doing to this country!
    Trump had our country running right with Americans in mind not like the idiot with his electric vehicle and trying to keep us all down with his stupidity! Open borders and mandatory vaccinations that are killing off our youth!
    A war that only the Democratic Party wants and wasted money when our own people are suffering!
    If you are stupid than please take the vaccines and die!

    Pence is a brainless idiot. That guy obviously got a lobotomy as well as castrated.

    Pence was right on one point. We do not want or need inexperienced people put in positions of power. That is exactly what the biden administration is made up of and it is a monumental failure. Biden chose people based on their identity politics value like a a over weight trans person or a cross dressing luggage stealing person, no one ever heard of those people before because they had absolutely no accomplishments in their fields just like biden as a senator he simply signed other peoples legislation and never accomplished anything on his own other then accepting bribes and cohearsing money out of foreign nations.

    I believe the term Pence was looking for was “vetted” . Now I don’t know what the correct definition is but I do believe I know what the political definition of vetted is. ” you are not one of the the good ol boys yet, and don’t have substantial ties to big pharma and other big money giving companies or people. You have not served your apprenticeship of learning how to make money while in office by having access to insider trading, over seas bribing and selling of Americas secrets, military, equipment, technological knowledge and our uranium. Hell you don’t even know to how to proper lie to the tax payer. And by the way I’ve never ever once seen you on Epstien’s plane or any of the parties on the island. Lastly, boy it’s just plain and simple you not one of us “
