What Trump Said about Hillary’s Pick for VP Caught Everyone Off Guard


There is no doubt that Trump surprises.  Just when you think you have him figured out, then he does something you do not expect.  Case in point, many, in anticipation of Hillary’s selection of Tim Kaine for VP, pondered the way Trump would hit at his opponents.

For many, the most logical attack would be to focus on where this ticket is divided.  Clinton, the feminist pro-abortion candidate, has a Jesuit pro-life running mate.  This seemed to be the place for the Trump camp to divide the party, but he has something else entirely in mind.

Republican nominee Donald Trump’s senior communications advisor Jason Miller called presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) “an ethically challenged insider.”

“It’s only fitting that Hillary Clinton would select an ethically challenged insider like Tim Kaine who’s personally benefited from the rigged system,” Miller stated in a press release on Friday.

Trump followed this up by taking this same message to Twitter.  He tweeted:

Is it the same Kaine that took hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts while Governor of Virginia and didn’t get indicted while Bob M did?

It seems that the Trump camp is going to set the Democratic ticket’s ethical record out for the country to see.  This will make the climb to the White House a difficult one for the Clinton/Kaine team.

But, one has to see that this is more than a moral shot at the candidates.  After all, if it is their morality that we are judging our candidates by, we would have never had Bill or Obama.  This attack can be overcome.  Trump is aiming at a bigger fissure in the Democratic Party.

Counter Punch reports:

Earlier this week, Bernie Sanders warned that Hillary Clinton’s eventual vice presidential pick must not be someone from the milieu of Wall Street and Corporate America.

In a thinly veiled demand that Clinton embrace the core principles of the Sanders campaign in order to secure the support of Sanders’s political base, the insurgent Democratic candidate hoped aloud “that the vice-presidential candidate will not be from Wall Street, will be somebody who has a history of standing up and fighting for working families, taking on the drug companies…taking on Wall Street, taking on corporate America, and fighting for a government that works for all of us, not just the 1%.”

And this is Trump’s real target.  The Trump camp is letting all of Bernie’s followers know that Hillary has ignored their candidate.  This will be a much larger fissure to overcome if they can get the word out.
