Kaine Clearly Unable To Lead Country After Yesterday’s Debate

Democratic Senator, Tim Kaine, and Republican Governor of Indiana, Mike Pence, verbally sparred at the Vice Presidential debate last night, and there’s no question who won. The debate was held at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia.

Tim Kaine, Clinton’s chosen Vice Presidential running mate, clearly did not do well as he not only interrupted Mike Pence repeatedly, but avoided actually talking about political points and the Democratic stance on issues.

Most surprisingly, the candidate didn’t even seem to want to defend his presidential candidate. When asked about the Clinton Foundation and whether Clinton herself was trustworthy, Kaine only turned his answer to an attack on Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee.

Breitbart News reports:

When trying to explain why he trusts Clinton when so many Americans do not, he quickly pivoted the answer into an attack on Donald Trump instead — without giving any substantial evidence for why anyone should trust his running mate.

Furthermore, his interruption of both his opponent and the debate moderator was downright immature. The moderator of the night had to continually ask Kaine to wait his turn to speak as he failed at trying to talk over Pence.

Shockingly enough, the Senator even went so far as to try to take credit for defeating Osama bin Laden on Clinton’s behalf.

Breitbart News reports:

Kaine then tried to take credit – on Clinton’s behalf – for killing Osama bin Laden, the 9/11 mastermind and al-Qaeda leader, even though she was not responsible for taking down Bin Laden.

 

“Let me tell you this: when Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State, Governor Pence, did you know Osama bin Laden was alive?” Kaine said.

 

“Yes,” Pence replied.

Besides the technical issues in Kaine’s debate technique, the candidate never seemed to fully address questions asked of him by moderator Elaine Quijano.

When asked about economic reform, Kaine did not directly outline any financial policies he and Clinton would put into place if elected.

Moving on in the debate, Pence outlined in detail Donald Trump’s policy on immigration and reformative measures, while Kaine once again interrupted Pence during his discussion.

Additionally, during this section of the debate, Kaine referred to Trump’s campaign as “insult- driven.”  Pence rebutted with the fact that Clinton was the insult-driven candidate, as she has infamously referred to Trump supporters as “deplorables.”

Breitbart News reports:

Kaine, in his rebuttal, falsely claimed that Clinton retracted and apologized for calling Trump supporters “deplorables.”

 

“Hillary Clinton said something on the campaign trail, and the very next day she said, “you know what? I shouldn’t have said that,” Kaine claimed.

 

Pence quickly corrected him, “She said she shouldn’t have said ‘half.'”

After Kaine lost that argument, he again shifted the focus to attacking Trump’s immigration plan without detailing Clinton’s. Kaine claimed that it was outrageous to have a deportation force such as the one in Trump’s platform, but Pence quickly rebutted with the fact that there is currently one run by the government in the form of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Kaine ended his debate with what he felt was a strong finish.

Breitbart News reports:

Kaine was clunky in his reply again, playing into Pence’s game once more. “I look forward to working together in whatever capacity we serve in,” Kaine said.

 

Later, on cyber security, Pence landed the jab on Kaine again. “I look forward, if I’m privileged to be in this role of working with you in the Senate, to making sure that we resource that effort,” Pence said about the cyber security issue.

 

“We will work together in whatever roles we inhabit.”

Overall, Tim Kaine showed more weakness in the debate than strength, a quality that is irreplaceable as a potential Commander-In-Chief. From his snappy one-liners and insults, to his lack of knowledge or discussion of political issues, America has decided that Kaine ultimately lost the debate.
