ALISYN CAMEROTA (CO-HOST): GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence did not take much of the bait at last night night’s V.P. debate. When his opponent Tim Kaine tried to use Trump’s words against him, Pence repeatedly denied them. But here are some of those exchanges and then what Trump actually said, watch this.
TIM KAINE: Let’s start with not praising Vladimir Putin as a great leader. Donald Trump and Mike Pence have said he’s a great leader. And Donald Trump has business dealings --
MIKE PENCE: No, we haven’t.
DONALD TRUMP: Certainly in that system, he’s been a leader far more than our president has been a leader.
KAINE: We don’t think that women should be punished, as Donald Trump said they should, for the making the decision to have an abortion.
PENCE: Donald Trump and I would never support legislation that punished women who made the heartbreaking choice to end a pregnancy.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Do you believe in punishment for abortion, yes or no, as a principle?
TRUMP: The answer is that there has to be some form of punishment.
KAINE: Donald Trump believes in deportation-nation. They want to go house to house, school to school, business to business, and kick out 16 million people. And I cannot believe
PENCE: That’s nonsense.
CHRIS CUOMO (CO-HOST): He’s shaking his head no, but he’s saying, I can’t believe I gotta answer this question, cause Trump already said it. That’s what’s going on.
