The 9 most NSFW lines from the VP debate

The one and only vice presidential debate of the 2016 election was much like the election itself: a total clusterf**k. 

Given the sloppy nature of the VP debate, it’s no surprise the soundbites that people jumped on were more slammed full of sexual innuendo than sound policy prescriptions. 

With help from the Washington Post‘s always-reliable debate transcript, we’ve rounded up the most NSFW lines from the vice presidential debate between Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) and Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine (D). 

1) “Gentlemen, welcome. It truly is a privilege to be with both of you tonight.” – Moderator Elaine Quijano

A little formal, but, hey, there are no rules in lovemaking.

2) “He’s broken his first…” – Kaine

Yikes.

3) “I’m not afraid to bring that up.” – Pence

Sounds like someone could use a Viagra.

4) “Elaine, can I…” – Kaine

We all know where this is going.

5) “Elaine, let me — let me…” – Kaine

Sorry, Tim, some things are off limits. 

6) “Elaine, if I could — if I could jump in.” – Kaine

Tim. Seriously. 

7) “I don’t like saying that in front of my wife and my mother.” – Kaine

One should hope not.

8) “Senator, you’ve whipped out that Mexican thing again.” – Pence

His name is Francisco Javier. And he’s not screwing around.

9) “I’m very gentle about this, because I really do respect you.” – Pence

We’ve all heard that one before.
