Responding to Mike Pence’s claim during the vice presidential debate that the Clinton campaign was “insult-driven,” Tim Kaine teed off on a list of Donald Trump’s insults that he had seemingly spent months memorizing.
Hillary Clinton had apologized, Pence noted, for her claim that half of Donald Trump’s supporters belong in a “basket of deplorables.”
“Look for Donald Trump apologizing to John McCain for saying he wasn’t a hero,” Kaine then challenged viewers. “Did Donald Trump apologize for calling women slobs, pigs, dogs, disgusting? Did Donald Trump apologize for taking after somebody in a Twitter war and making fun of her weight?”
“Did he apologize for saying African-Americans were living in hell?” he continued. “For saying president Obama was not even a citizen of the United States? You will look in vain to see Donald Trump ever taking responsibility for anybody and apologizing.”
