Wednesday on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, Sen. Tim Kaine said President Trump acted like a “jackass” at the State of the Union address when he refused to shake House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s hand, and thus her ripping up of Trump’s speech transcript was an appropriate response.
“I didn’t see the end of the speech when she did that,” Kaine said. “And so I got asked about it later and I was just surprised because I hadn’t seen it. But I said wait, he won’t shake her hand and he gives a Medal of Freedom to somebody who’s called her every name in the book for years and he stands up there and lies about health care but we’re going to talk about how she should respond?
“He can behave like a jackass but we have to jump all over her back? I mean, I don’t get the double standard,” Hillary Clinton‘s former running mate in 2016 added disingenuously.
Oh, please. If the Democrats didn’t have double standards they wouldn’t have any standards at all.
