Donald Trump Is Live Tweeting The VP Debate So Here We Go

He just couldn't let Mike Pence have 90 minutes to himself.

Posted on October 4, 2016, at 9:10 p.m. ET

A couple hours before the big 2016 vice presidential debate, Donald Trump announced that he planned to live tweet it.

I will be watching the great Governor @Mike_Pence and live tweeting the VP debate tonight starting at 8:30pm est! Enjoy!

One could ask, might this distract from the VP candidates, Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican Mike Pence?

@realDonaldTrump Let him have one night to himself.

His campaign enlisted a squad of four aides to be with Trump while he tweeted the debate.

Yep, it is happening!

Trump gave the early edge to his guy Pence, was not impressed with Kaine's appearance.

.@mike_pence is doing a great job - so far, no contest!

"@Jnelson52722: @realDonaldTrump @Susiesentinel Kaine looks like an evil crook out of the Batman movies"

He used this opporunity as debate spectator to throw jabs at Kaine with some hashtag gusto #bigleaguetruth

.@timkaine is the ANTI-DEFENSE SENATOR. #VPDebate #BigLeagueTruth https://t.co/qWkvGFARA1

.@timkaine is wrong for defense: https://t.co/QN9qqoq1kH #BigLeagueTruth #VPDebate

And he had to plenty to tweet out about Clinton in ALL CAPS, too.

He's keeping it pretty cool, retweeting his followers and letting their emotion do the talking.

"@Gsimmons03Ginny: @realDonaldTrump ..Kaine is awful, Trump and Pence are the ticket..no more lies, we are ready to see America Great Again!

"@AnyoneTennis: @timkaine Cannot believe how often the moderator interrupts #Pence vs the other guy...so obvious @FoxNews" So true!

Trump calls it.

Mike Pence won big. We should all be proud of Mike!
