2016 VP Debate … DEBATE INTERRUPTUS: Democrat Tim Kaine Bombs as GOP Mike Pence is he Voice of Reason & Calm
CAN WE JUST CALL THE EVENT THAT TOOK PLACE LAST NIGHT AS DEBATE INTERRUPTUS?
Subtitled: KAINE was not able …
In what can only be described as a complete debacle, Hillary’s unhinged pick for VP interrupted Gov. Mike Pence some 70 times during last nights Vice Presidential debate. It was actually painful and annoying to watch. But this is what you get from Team Hillary Clinton and can expect to get from a Clinton presidency.

Throughout Tuesday’s debate, Kaine did repeatedly interject, drawing the attention of many debate watchers on social media.

Pundits declared Pence, Donald Trump’s running mate, the winner of the debate, and Kaine’s interruptions seemed to detract from his overall message in support of Clinton.
The Republican National Committee noted after the debate that Kaine interrupted Pence and the debate moderator at least 70 times throughout the night, according to The Hill.
And data-journalism website FiveThirtyEight made a similar assessment, counting Kaine’s interruptions or interjections at more than 70 and Pence’s at just a little more than 40.
Still, the constant interjections seemed to have hurt him. Republican pollster Frank Luntz tied Kaine’s interruptions to him losing the debate, according to a focus group he conducted:
