“Shut him uuuuuuppppppppp,” wrote actress Natasha Rothwell.
“#mikepence is a mealymouthed loyalist,” said Bette Midler, a vocal critic of the Trump administration. “This administration did nothing to help people get through this pandemic, NOTHING. He should hang his head in shame. I hope this follows him forever.”
Alyssa Milano chimed in as well, saying, “Pence lies with a smile. He’s a disgrace. Part of being a great leader is being an honest person. Kamala Harris is an honest person. She’s ready to lead on day one.”

More from Fox News:
In reference to Harris’ comments on Trump’s tax controversy, “Avengers: Endgame” star Mark Ruffalo said, “Who does Trump owe money too???”
The evening also marks a moment in history, as Harris is the first Black and South Asian woman to take to the debate stage as a vice-presidential candidate.
Notably, the debate, which was held at the University of Utah, also included Plexiglass barriers and a fair amount of distance between Pence and Harris following a coronavirus breakout in the White House that ultimately worked its way to Trump and first lady Melania Trump.
Trump and Biden will face off on Oct. 15 in Miami. The president returned to the White House after a stint at Walter Reed Medical Center while battling the novel virus, and said Tuesday he was “looking forward” to debating Biden next week.
A final debate is scheduled for Oct. 22 in Nashville, Tennessee.
