Kamala Harris should request a better stage setup.

The stage is definitely not safe. Those shields might help if someone sneezes directly in the other person's direction, but the desks are too close, and the virus can still spread in the air around the shields.

What a terrible setup. I'm really worried for Kamala's health.

13. Good point.

Honestly, I'm in favor of what will be helpful politically at this point. I suspect that pulling out would not be helpful - I could be wrong.

3. That's the setup?

I was expecting it to be like Jaime Harrison’s.
This doesn’t look like it would be effective in any way.

Why the hell do they have to be in the same room?

more like Jaimie Harrison's. Like an an actual plexiglass wall between them. Not this.

She needs to pull out now and insist on virtual.

5. It may be the angle at which we are seeing them. They are supposed to be 12 ft apart.

That said, Pence should damn well be in quarantine and not out and about potentially infecting countless others. They should debate virtually but yes, they SHOULD DEBATE.

This set-up may be designed to minimize risk, but it is certainly not failsafe. Frankly, this is probably the best we are going to get.

17. But why is Kamala allowing them to dictate the terms of the debate?

I'd say Zoom only, and only if moderator has mute buttons.

Why risk becoming infected?

Why allow repukes to set the standards? And wtf is with Pence insisting they both sit?

She should imho, tell him to go fk himself.

Her way or the highway. Repukes need to bring their numbers up. Dems do not need this debate, certainly not compared to the risk of Kamala's health!

20. It is a negotiation. She insisted on plexiglass which Pence spent past two days saying he would NOT

allow. Her team also demanded Cleveland Clinic review and their recommended distance of 12 feet over six feet be initiated.

I'd hardly say she is allowing THEM to dictate terms. Quite the opposite, actually. Pence has had to fold multiple times.

26. Glad to hear but still not to my liking

Not that I get a vote on this.

I just worry for her safety!

Chumputin & co. seem determined to infect everyone! Esp now that shitstain & his coconspirators are +.

They want to level that aspect of the playing field so they can say Joe is at greater risk due to being older.

She does not need this debate, he does.

With plexiglass glass wings to make sure all pence's virus goes toward the emcee.

The barriers are too small. It looks like someone was more concerned with aesthetics than safety.

15. Why is she tolerating this?

Makes absolutely no sense!

She should clearly state: zoom only, mute buttons mandatory. Anything less, no debate.

Oh, and btw, she should stand, if she wishes.

Repukes are the ones who are in need of a strong debate performance. Make them do it HER way.

16. Sanjay Gupta said it wasn't safe, even with the plexiglass.

That's because the virus aerosolizes and can travel
over the plexiglass.

Blows my mind that she is even considering this! Pence is quite likely positive, given time spent around chumputin.

WHY risk her health?

This is not complicated, people. Trump has already attempted to assassinate Biden. SO we are going to let them try again? Jesus effing ChrisCripsy

25. WTF? There's no way Pence isn't positive for covid

...unless the entire WH outbreak is a hoax...

OR...Did pence have covid-19 back in May and lie about it (when his press secretary caught it)? It's not really a stretch to think that since tRump tried to cover up his (and Hope Hicks's) status.

Either way, Sen Harris should demand to see pence's most recent test result. Even if he had covid-19 in the past, there's no guarantee he can't catch and spread it again.

27. Wear a mask with VOTE on it and state at the start due to sitting there for an hour and half, with

possibility of heavy load from republicans who are infected, and listening to science, she felt it prudent to wear a mask thru out the debate.

29. Well, this is not good:

Linsey Marr, an expert on airborne viruses at Virginia Tech, laughed outright when she saw a picture of the plexiglass setup for the vice presidential debate.
“It’s absurd,” she said.
