Celebrity·Posted on Oct 7, 2020People Are Mocking How Pathetic The Plexiglass Dividers At The Vice Presidential Debate Are"The plexiglass at McDonald's is more substantive."by Matt StoperaBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink As you may possibly know by now, the White House is having a bit* of an internal coronavirus problem. Win Mcnamee / Getty Images *A "bit" is obviously an understatement. Many people, including the president and those close to him, have tested positive for the virus. Vice President Pence has since tested negative and is supposed to debate Senator Kamala Harris tonight in Salt Lake City. Mandel Ngan / Getty Images At first, Pence's team was against any sort of plexiglass divider, but the two sides have come to an agreement. Eric Baradat / Getty Images Politico reported that there are going to be pieces of plexiglass dividing Pence, Harris, and the moderator. Robyn Beck / Getty Images They're also going to be sitting 13 feet away from each other as opposed to the originally planned seven feet. And now we know what that looks like: Geoff Bennett @GeoffRBennett Good morning from inside the site of tonight’s Pence-Harris vice presidential debate. 11:25 AM - 07 Oct 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Yup... Eric Baradat / Getty Images That's it. Justin Sullivan / Getty Images That's all. Eric Baradat / Getty Images And people on Twitter are saying how questionable it all seems. Justin Sullivan / Getty Images "Wow that plexiglass looks like it'll totally work." Hannah Howard🐍 @techgirlwonder wow that plexiglass looks like it'll totally work. https://t.co/iZl31F73G1 04:25 PM - 07 Oct 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite "Salad bars at chain restaurants have more plexiglass protection." highplainsgrifter @highplainsgrif1 @LEBassett Salad bars at chain restaurants have more plexiglass protection 12:59 PM - 07 Oct 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite "The plexiglass at McDonalds is more substantive." Hi-Phi Nation @HiPhiNation The plexiglass at McDonalds is more substantive. https://t.co/yivZHWfQPZ 04:26 PM - 07 Oct 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite This person said they wouldn't even eat a meal outdoors in these conditions. Kate O'Neill @kateo @GeoffRBennett This setup would barely make me comfortable to eat a meal out in the open air, let alone engage in a 90-minute full-throated debate indoors with someone known to have been exposed to the virus. 12:46 PM - 07 Oct 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite This person called it a "set decoration." Bridges, Not Walls(@🏠) @OurChildrenToo I wouldn't call that Plexiglass thing a "barrier. It looks more like set decoration. #CancelTheDebate https://t.co/917hHAzYB0 03:18 PM - 07 Oct 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite And this person compared it to poison ivy. Biden-Harris2020 @ColorArousal @david_darmofal That plexiglass wouldn't prevent poison ivy. 03:01 PM - 07 Oct 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Basically, the overwhelming sentiment is: Is this a joke? Alp Ozcelik @alplicable Uhhhhhhh, is this a joke???? Do they really think this laughable plexiglass set up is enough?? Can someone please inquire about their ventilation and filtration set up in this hall???? https://t.co/Zq187y2zdF 01:32 PM - 07 Oct 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite And ultimately, "Why not just do this on Zoom?" Mary Ellen Maatman @MaryEllenMaatma Very questionable set-up. That plexiglass looks useless, and it doesn't look like sufficient distance between candidates. Why not just do this on Zoom? https://t.co/3AHgUoVnnT 03:27 PM - 07 Oct 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Either way, I guess this is our new reality. We can only wait and see what happens. Patricia Lockwood @TriciaLockwood the plexiglass thing is so fucking weird ... it’s like in star trek when they pretend the ships can’t just go around each other 02:08 PM - 07 Oct 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite The debate airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET.
