After the vice-presidential debate last night, a woman called into C-SPAN claiming to know Senator Tim Kaine personally — and she had nothing good to say about him. The caller, “Shirley from Richmond, Virginia,” said she was an undecided voter until she saw Kaine at the debate. And that seemed to trigger some bad memories….

“I am a beginning member of Richmond City Council,” Shirley said. “I know Tim Kaine. Tim Kaine cares only about Tim Kaine.”

She claimed that Kaine had been “trying to become the president” since even before he was on the city council.

“He really doesn’t care about people at all,” the woman charged. “He will do whatever it takes. I’m reminded of the Manchurian Candidate and Mrs. Clinton’s health issues.”

She declared that if Kaine ever becomes president, “we won’t have a country. This guy is crazy.”

“I know him personally, Shirley added. “I’m not trying to be nasty, I’m just standing up for what is right to say and standing up for the people in this country.”

She concluded that she would be voting for Trump in order to make sure Kaine is “no longer in a position to be president.”
