In case you’ve forgotten, Tim Kaine is the Virginia Senator who had the misfortune of attaching his rising star to Hillary Clinton’s presidential catastrophe. He was selected as Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 running mate because, like millions upon millions of other Americans, he speaks Spanish. This little bit of transparent pandering was supposed to deliver the Hispanic vote, allowing Hillary to win without white males – who she felt were deplorable and unnecessary to her victory.
If that strategy seems crazy to you, congratulations. You have better judgement that Tim Kaine, who speaks Spanish.
Anyway, MSNBC pulled Kaine out of the political mothballs this morning and asked him: Hey, didn’t Obama and Kerry say they’d eliminated all of Syria’s chemical weapons?
Tim Kaine, who boldly chose to answer in English despite being a fluent Spanish-speaker, responded honestly.
Well whoopsy-doodle-doo! Apparently, from 2013-2017, when Obama’s surrogates were telling every news show that they’d eliminated Assad’s stockpile, they weren’t quite correct. Someone should alert Politifact to this shocking turn of events, since they rated Kerry’s claims “mostly true.”
I guess we now know that the following video is yet another collection of the previous administration’s hokum, flim-flammery, and other folksy homespun words for “blatant lies.”
Also, Tim Kaine speaks Spanish.
