Sen. Tim Kaine’s (D-VA) speaking Spanish in his Democratic National Convention speech last night was predictably polarizing for the pundits following along at home.

Kaine, who is fluent in Spanish after a year working with Jesuit missionaries in Honduras, earned generally positive reviews from liberals and establishment Democrats. But on the other end of the spectrum, conservatives took to Twitter to slam Kaine’s speaking Spanish as something like a “pandering” version of the bilingual children’s show “Dora the Explorer.”

Here are just a few of their responses.
