Much has been said about this ninety minute broadcast that took place in Farmville, VA, since yesterday evening in terms of analysis and campaign talking points from both sides, but I want to weigh in for my followers who maybe missed this event and only heard a thirty second AP, Reuters or other mainstream media summary over their radio or television this morning.
It was shocking to hear how the liberals spliced words and soundbites this morning to make it sound like somehow, Vice President Nominee for Hillary Clinton’s Presidential bid, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) won this discussion. Or conversation. Or however it was nebulously framed by the left, as a debate would be too technical and constraining.
A national television broadcasting network who owns a radio station here, surmised the debate by editing into their soundbite a repeated campaign slogan Kaine used last night, with words Donald Trump has used to describe women over the past. This was followed up when the only thing Governor Pence (R-IN) did in this time period, again in view of liberal mainstream media talking points, was apologize for Trump’s not being a polished politician. (edit out Pence’s saying like Clinton and Kaine)
How amusing, since anyone familiar with Hillary Clinton’s fierce actions on the many women who were involved with her husband, former President of the United States, William J. Clinton, willingly or unwillingly, knows she used much worse names to call women than Trump is being cited for now. Hillary? A friend to women? Not.
For the ladies who allegedly were assaulted by her husband, or those like Monica Lewinsky, who told the public the relationship with Mr. Clinton was consensual, Hillary chose to go after them and ruin their lives for her own husband’s depravities. A complete hypocrite who claims to be for women’s rights, and equal pay for women, currently pays the men on her own campaign staff more money than her female workers.
Trump, on the other hand, has a multitude of women in leadership positions within all of his companies.
Not without fault in terms of his own past, in terms of unsuccessful marriage, like the Clinton’s, who have not lived together for at least fifteen years, and did not even stay in the same hotel during the 2016 Democrat Convention, when Hillary was nominated to run for her party as their presidential candidate.
Trump’s women, two ex-wives and his current wife for over a decade, Melania, daughters and employees, all stand behind him.
The best the Clinton campaign could do after more than a year of digging was find one ex-Miss Universe, who obviously wanted money, a renewed momentary exposure, or both, to drag out of the woods and say how badly Trump treated her. The real story was that Trump did everything to help her when while still wearing the crown, she did many things that would have cancelled her contract and taken the title from her, despite advice from others involved who told him to drop her.
But, that said, this was the morning news sound bite from the liberal media who support Kaine, and now had to somehow make his horrible performance seem like a winning one: the negative words Trump used to describe women, and Pence’s one sentence the editors could find that sounded weak without the other 89 minutes, for most people who did not tune in to watch the debate last night.
This is how the mainstream media wants the general public to believe this is how the dual turned out among these two nominees. Quite a reach. An amazing job of making the complete opposite of what was true look accurate.
As someone who doesn’t usually tweet, or use my twitter account, I and many others who couldn’t believe the theatrics of this newscast, were tweeting every two minutes. No one was short of words. On my Facebook account, I wrote when it finished: That VP debate was completely bizarre. Maybe Hillary picked Kaine to make her look more stable and less unhinged. Quite a challenge.
It was the most absurd display between two Vice President Candidates anyone had ever seen.
Democrat Kaine, in any other venue, would be considered someone psychologically unsound. Totally unprofessional. Rude, crass and clearly on a mission to deliver whatever talking points he was instructed to do, he came across as a person never to be considered next in line as Commander in Chief of the United States of America. If Clinton is somehow elected and whose failing health has been observed by many professionals, despite denial from her doctor and campaign, Kaine showed viewers last night he is not capable of assuming our country’s highest office.
For fact checkers, please look up the many false remarks he made last night, some totally out of left field. Since the moderator was clearly out of her league, and there to assist Kaine and deflect Pence, the broadcast in itself was almost on the verge of reality TV.
It was revealed today Governor Pence was interrupted 72 times, a record breaking number, while the moderator said nothing except to admonish Pence once or twice to please give Kaine his allowed minutes. Kaine stared desperately at the moderator to break it up whenever Pence trounced him with truth, in a soft spoken voice with knowledge and patience.
Republican Pence, appeared as a comprehensive leader. Completely proficient. Polite, gentlemanly and solely there to represent the candidate who made him his under ticket, with shared policy and party agenda. The former popular Congressman who served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2003 to 2013, exhibited himself as a man who could assume the Oval Office with ease. If Trump is elected, Pence has what it takes in terms of temperament and experience, to assume the position of the President of the United States, or run for this office after Trump.
