"Can we make this a universal meme for responding to mansplaining."

Sen. Kamala Harris on Wednesday got a lot of attention online for how she reacted to repeated interruptions by her debate opponent, Vice President Mike Pence.

In between all the policy talk, many viewers had one big takeaway: Harris's reaction when Pence interrupted her is a whole mood.

One great shot from the debate, captured in the reflection of the plexiglass put up to keep the candidates safely socially distanced, kind of said it all.

This is all black women tonight. Thank you to all the queens. I’m so proud of Kamala Harris tonight.

A lot of women said they could relate to being interrupted.
