VP Debate Moderator Elaine Quijano Praised by Twitter Users

"An Asian American Woman telling two old white dudes when to talk..I LOVE IT."

Vice presidential candidates Tim Kaine and Mike Pence faced off at Tuesday's debate moderated by CBS News' Elaine Quijano, and while Twitter users fixated on dad jokes about the two running mates, they also praised Quijano for her stern reactions to Kaine and Pence's constant interruptions and speaking over one another. 

After the two vice presidential candidates continued to interrupt each other in their answers, Quijano broke in: "Gentlemen, the people cannot understand either one of you when you speak over each other. I would please ask you to wait until the other is finished."

Twitter users went online to applaud her for her stern rebuke. See some of the reactions below.
