Tim Kaine hasn’t done a very good job of being an advocate for Hillary Clinton. It seems like every time he gets on stage or in front of a camera, he says something that hurts (instead of helps) the former First Lady.
Here’s the story from the Young Conservatives:
“Democratic vice presidential nominee Senator Tim Kaine (D., Va.) said Tuesday that voters have a right to know about a candidate’s health and possible foreign entanglements.
“Kaine’s remarks were meant to criticize Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. However, they could have applied to his running mate Hillary Clinton, who has faced her own questions about her health and the influence of foreign entities over her State Department while serving as secretary of state.
“At a campaign event in Erie, Pennsylvania, Kaine said voters had ‘simple questions’ for people running for the nation’s highest office.
“‘You want to know if we’ll disclose our finances, so you can understand how we’ve managed our own household or business and see if we owe anybody anything,’ he said. ‘We want to make sure that candidates aren’t involved in any foreign entanglements that could impact our national security, and we want to know that they’re in good-enough health to perform their duties.’
“When candidates are on the up-and-up, they have no problem disclosing information on all these points. You have a right to know. You have a right to expect, and a candidate that’s on the up-and-up has no problem giving you the facts.'”
This was an odd statement from the Democratic VP nominee. That’s because Hillary hasn’t been honest or forthcoming about the current state of her health, her finances (especially with the Clinton Foundation) and possible foreign entanglements from contributions to said foundation.
Maybe it’s a desperate attempt at reverse psychology to make Trump appear less trustworthy than Hillary. That’s the only way Kaine’s comments make any sense.
Why do you think Tim Kaine made these remarks on the campaign trail?
