One viewer tweeted, "First Twitter question of the night: What's the bracelet Susan Page has on?" And he wasn't the only one who wanted to know about the standout accessory choice. Someone joked, "What is this neon green bracelet Susan is wearing? Did she go to the pool or a theme park before she decided to show up at this debate to let Pence monologue all over the stage?" Another viewer tweeted, "why is the moderator rockin a 21 plus bracelet u get before u go into a club lol." A different tweeted had a similar thought, posting, "Does Susan Page have a drink bracelet." Probably not, but she might have wished she had one during the debate. A viewer tweeted, "What is with moderator's green bracelet? Is it me or does it look like a hospital bracelet?" Another person chimed in, "Is Susan Page preemptively wearing a green hospital ID bracelet because she's resigned to catching the Rona from Pence?" That was likely a reference to the questions about Vice President Mike Pence possibly contracting coronavirus given his close proximity to others that tested positive, including President Donald Trump.
The internet's hilarious take on Susan Page's debate bracelet If the first presidential head-to-head was a "hot mess inside a dumpster fire," vice presidential debate moderator Susan Page was not taking any chances with October 7. The veteran journalist seemed determined not to have the barrage of rotten Twitter tomatoes flung at her that her colleague, presidential debate moderator Chris Wallace did. Uncompromising, she opened the vice presidential debate. She warned Senator Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence that she would not hesitate to "enforce ground rules;" she admonished the candidates that the United States "deserves a discussion that is civil," and she insisted that "we can and will have a respectful exchange." USA Today's Washington Bureau Chief is a heavyweight when it comes to keeping discussions sternly and professionally, on track. (Take Ivanka Trump's debate day get-up, for example, or as The Washington Post pointed out, the entire Trump team's refusal to wear face masks.) And while Page's wardrobe choice was mostly demure, there is one accessory that the Twitterverse latched onto.
