The Trump campaign left a ticket to Wednesday night's vice presidential debate open for Sen. Kamala Harris' (D-CA) favorite rapper that she believes is still alive, Tupac Shakur. It was a clear jab at the vice presidential candidate's comment last month. Apparently she had no idea that the rapper died back in 1996.
The comment was made during a call with reporters earlier on Wednesday when CBS reporter Nicole Spanga asked who Vice President Mike Pence was bringing as his guests.

A spokesperson responded: "Tupac."
Happy Wednesday, everybody.
It was confirmed that the answer came from Trump Campaign senior advisor Jason Miller.

There seemed to be in agreement on Twitter: if Tupac magically appeared, it would be peak 2020.
