Hillary Clinton, who’s been messaging from the campaign trail her complete regard for, respect for and support of women, might want to turn her eye inward—at her vice presidential pick, Sen. Tim Kaine.
As Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, noted: Kaine was far from polite toward his female moderator during his vice presidential debate against Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
Conway said, during an interview with Megyn Kelly of Fox News after the debate, Kaine ought not to have kept cutting off CBS News host Elaine Quijano.
“There he was,” Conway said, Breitbart reported, “interrupting a female moderator. We lost track of the times. We just stopped writing it down. He was interrupting –”
And then Megyn broke in herself, to remind Conway that it was fair game in politics to interrupt both men and women.
But Conway disagreed, pointing to Clinton’s campaign “for-the-woman” mantra.
“Well, no,” Conway responded, according to Breitbart. “It’s the Clinton campaign who loves to throw around words like ‘sexism’ and ‘unhinged.’ They’ve got to be regretting those words on a night like tonight, when Tim Kaine looked like both.”
In a different interview later that same evening, Conway drove the home deeper.
As Breitbart reported, Conway told Sean Hannity, also of Fox News, that “if Donald Trump or Mike Pence had treated a female moderator the way Tim Kaine had, it would have been a scandal.”
