ABC host George Stephanopoulos said Wednesday evening that a lot of “mansplaining” went on during the vice presidential debate.

Stephanopoulos took aim at Vice President Mike Pence in comments made after the debate ended, suggesting that Pence over-explained his statements to Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris.

“Obviously Mike Pence is a former television commentator, does have a very calm demeanor, but I think a lot of people were noticing some mansplaining going on tonight,” the ABC host said. (RELATED: Pence Highlights Harris’ Attacks On Kavanaugh, Democratic Attacks On Amy Coney Barrett)


“I don’t know, I didn’t see it that way,” responded Deep Root Analytics CEO Sarah Fagan. “I do think he should have stopped talking a little quicker, but I don’t think he was disrespectful of either woman. I thought he did a really strong job tonight.”
