Wednesday night’s vice presidential debate probably shouldn’t be happening. With coronavirus spreading quickly through the Trump administration, Mike Pence may pose a legitimate health risk to Kamala Harris and the debate’s moderator, USA Today‘s Susan Page. Given those real dangers, the Commission on Presidential Debates has decided to move the candidates from standing seven to now 13 feet apart and has approved the installation of a plexiglass barrier between Harris and Pence. Pence’s team, as Politico reported on Monday, opposed the barrier. “If Sen. Harris wants to use a fortress around herself, have at it,” Pence’s spokeswoman, Katie Miller, mockingly responded to the decision.
