The Key Exchange

Views

Many key exchanges in this debate. But this will likely be the most memorable: “you whipped out that Mexican thing again.” Full exchange below.

KAINE: Great line from the Gospel of Matthew: From the fullness of the heart, the mouth speaks.

PENCE: Yeah.

KAINE: When Donald Trump says women should be punished, or that Mexicans are rapists and criminals, or John McCain’s not a hero, he’s showing you who he is.

PENCE: Senator, you whipped out that Mexican thing again.

KAINE: Can you defend it?

PENCE: There are criminal aliens in this country, Tim, who have come into this country illegally, who are perpetrating violence …

KAINE: You want to use a big brush against Mexicans.

PENCE: He also said, and many of them are good people, you keep leaving that out of your quote. If you want me to go there, I’ll go there.
