On October 7, 2020, Mike Pence will face off against prosecutor and U.S. Senator Kamala Harris. Harris has made a name for herself being a tough questioner during senate hearings. Pence made a name for himself as Indiana governor for trying to tell pizza restaurants they can legally discriminate against LGBTQ people.

There are many questions, however, that Pence probably won’t have to answer at that debate, and The Lincoln Project, a group of Republican strategists determined to kick Trump out of the White House and out of their party, raised every one of those questions in a new political ad featuring Mike Pence.
For instance, has Mike Pence ever responded to Donald Trump’s disparaging of John McCain for having been captured as a prisoner of war?
Pence once said on a radio show during a political campaign that marital infidelity was the most important issue there is since it reveals so much about the character of the person who couldn’t keep their promises to their spouse. Has Pence ever been asked to answer, then, about Trump’s many affairs, at least two of which have been revealed since Trump took office?
For that matter, has Pence ever been asked questions about the women Trump tried to cheat on his wife with non-consensually? After all, there are 24 of them and so far, all Trump has said about them is that they have “no witnesses” and that they are not his type, anyway. In other words, they’re not the type worth sexual harassment. Has Pence ever addressed that?
There are many more important questions for Pence, some of which The Lincoln Project address in their ad, but there’s a bigger question that Mike Pence should have to answer: how do you claim to be an evangelical Christian and stand next to Trump every day?
Twitter had a lot to say about the new ad from The Lincoln Project. See some of their responses below:
