Tim Kaine was annoying.
The Democratic vice presidential candidate spent the first half hour of Tuesday’s debateinterrupting Mike Pence and making it hard for anyone to keep track of what was going on.
While Pence may have helped his own career with a reserved and tempered performance, Kaine landed a few shots that will help his running mate in the coming weeks.
“Donald Trump and I would never support legislation that punished women who made the heartbreaking choice to end a pregnancy,” Pence said towards the end of the debate.
“Then why did Donald Trump say that?” Kaine replied..
“Well, look, it’s — look, he’s not a polished politician like you and Hillary Clinton,” Pence said.
That exchange was mirrored throughout the night, as Kaine launched annoying but largely factual attacks against Trump that Pence denied.
Trump live-Tweeted the debate, and compared Kaine to a Batman villain.
A supposed Wikileaks bombshell failed to yield an October surprise against Hillary Clinton.
“There have been a lot of misquotes,” Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said. Among the rumors: “I’m going to destroy Hillary Clinton, or harm Hillary Clinton, or that I don’t like Hillary Clinton. That’s not true.”
The organization announced that it will release 1 million documents over the next 10 weeks, some of which will deal with the U.S. elections.
