Vice President Joe Biden interrupted Paul Ryan 82 times in a 90-minute debate with rival Paul Ryan, while CNN reported that women preferred Ryan.
“FACT: Final Count: Biden interrupted 82 times during the entire debate,” the RNC’s Joe Pounder tweeted after the debate. CNN’s Gloria Berger said that she would have liked Biden to show less “condescension” and “eye-rolling.”
Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace said that Biden “was openly contemptuous and disrespectful” of Ryan (h/t Lachlan Markay).
“Mr. Vice President, I know you’re under a lot of duress to make up lost ground, but I think people will be better served if we don’t keep interrupting each other,” Ryan said during the debate.
CNN’s Erin Burnett said that “Women tended to rate Paul Ryan more highly.”
