Do you remember that guy who kept hanging around Hillary Clinton during the election? Not sure what his job was, but some people say he was supposed to be Vice-President.
Yup, that was Tim Kaine, folks. The guy who got turned into a sweaty mess by Mike Pence during the Vice Presidential Debate. After the election, he went back to being the Senator from Virginia that no one cares about. He also spends his time at airports protesting Trump’s immigration ban. But whatever else he spends his time on, I bet it’s not on parenting.
Last weekend, Tim Kaine’s son was pepper sprayed and arrested while he was protesting against President Donald Trump. It was during a counter-protest at a pro-Trump rally. After he got into a tussle with the police, they arrested him on suspicion of second-degree riot after fireworks were reported being lit outside the Capitol. Four other people were arrested with him.
Tim Kaine told the Pioneer Press that “We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues. They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.”
Really? I wonder why D.C. police felt the need to take your son down with a knee strike, Tim. And why was he dressed in all black and wearing a mask? That outfit is characteristic of the often-armed thugs who ironically call themselves “antifa,” or anti-fascist.

Here’s how Woody Kaine’s arrest went down:
The Minnesota State Patrol contacted St. Paul police to assist, reporting that troopers had identified five people who lit off fireworks inside the Capitol, Linders said. The State Patrol asked St. Paul officers to arrest the five.
Police approached them at a park near the Capitol, identified themselves as officers and the people ran in different directions. But officers caught up with them, according to Linders.

An officer ordered a man, later identified as Linwood Kaine, to the ground. He refused, Linders said.
“The officer was able to get ahold of Mr. Kaine, but he got up, squared off with the officer and the officer tried to take him to the ground again,” Linders said Wednesday. Another officer arrived and sprayed a chemical irritant toward Kaine.
“He then was taken to the ground, but continued to resist, at which point another officer deployed a knee strike to get him to cooperate with the officers and put his hands behind his back,” Linders continued. “After the strike, Mr. Kaine cooperated and was taken into custody without further incident.”
