Last night, Tim Kaine channeled his inner Trump.
Kaine needs to stop interrupting him #debatenight

Kaine, you didn’t read the debate rules about interrupting did you? #DebateNight

My mother would hit Kaine on the head with her long spoon every time he rudely interrupts… he'd loose any debate in my house #DebateNight

During the first, and only, vice presidential debate, Kaine interrupted his opponent, Mike Pence, 72 times according to Vox. Clearly, Kaine forgot his manners—and what happened last week.

Even Kaine’s first response of the night was nothing more than an awkward, stiff, clearly over-rehearsed speech on how great Hillary Clinton is than an actual answer to a question.

It seemed like Kaine had no intention of debating Pence last night. All he cared about was casting aspersions on Trump and getting in his sound bites: “Trump has run a campaign that’s been about one insult after the next.” “He’s called women slobs, pigs, dogs, disgusting.” “He called Mexicans rapists and criminals.” “Trump believes in deportation nation.” “Do you want a ‘you’re hired’ president in Hillary Clinton, or do you want a ‘you’re fired’ president in Donald Trump?” “Trump, again and again, has praised Vladimir Putin.”

Despite Kaine’s best efforts, Pence didn’t take the bait. He remained calm and composed, unlike Kaine who appeared irritated, flustered and rather uncomfortable the entire night.
Debating is definitely not Kaine’s strong suit.
Pence is hitting like hell, Kaine is just smiling and spewing talking points out. #debatenight

But at least he proved he’s good at something.
