Something extraordinary happened last night. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump openly broke with his own vice presidential running mate and even said they hadn't spoken to each other since Friday.
During the vice presidential debate, Pence said we must be prepared to launch attacks against Assad, but during last night's debate Trump said he disagrees with that.
Pence was asked about that exchange this morning and he accused the media of getting his words wrong.

PENCE: Frankly, I've got a lot of respect for Martha Raddatz but she just misrepresented the statement that I made in my national debate.
Debate moderator Martha Raddatz did not misrepresent Pence's position on Syria. Raddatz quoted Pence word for word and Trump responded by saying that he disagrees with Pence and that they hadn't spoken to each other.
Pence spent the entire vice presidential debate denying every word Donald Trump has ever sad. Pence is now denying his own words.
