Kaine: ‘Crooked Hillary’ Nickname Is ‘Ridiculous’
Sen. Tim Kaine tore into Donald Trump and his frequent use of the “crooked Hillary” nickname to insult Hillary Clinton.
During their first joint interview on “60 Minutes,” Kaine commended Clinton for letting the insults “go off her back.”
“When I see this, you know, ‘Crooked Hillary,’ or I see the, ‘Lock her up,’ it’s just ridiculous. It’s ridiculous,” he said.
“It is beneath the character of the kind of dialogue we should have, because we got real serious problems to solve.”
The Hill reports:
Trump frequently calls Clinton “Crooked Hillary” on the campaign trail, and his supporters at the Republican National Convention last week often broke out into chants of “Lock her up.”
Clinton said during the “60 Minutes” interview that she won’t engage in the types of insults Trump and his campaign throw at her.
“So whatever he says about me, he’s perfectly free to use up his own air time and his own space to do so,” Clinton said.
“I’m going to talk about what he’s done, how he has hurt people in business time after time.”
