Memes About Mike Pence & Tim Kaine Illustrate A Couple Of Their Similarities
We always knew that this was inevitable. A media event that puts two people side-by-side for over an hour is bound to draw comparisons to various other pairings. And because of Twitter, we have a treasure trove of comparisons. Some are actual couples. Some are famous buddies. Some are just pictures of twins because let's face it — that's what happens when you put two older white gentlemen next to each other. Thankfully they wore different color ties. At the outset, it seemed like boring and white was the best comparison. These are candidates that are best known for not being known.
There were even suggestions that Democratic nominee Tim Kaine and Republican nominee Mike Pence were basically the same person. But as the debate went on and claws continued to sharpen, the comparisons between people bickering or needling each other became more relevant. Kaine and Pence heated up and escalated interruptions depending on the subject at hand. They even began to talk over moderator Elaine Quijano, despite her continually asking them to simmer down.
Obviously, Twitter caught all of this and responded accordingly. Here are some of the very best Pence and Kaine comparison tweets of the night.
