Video: Sen. Tim Kaine Says It’s “Disturbing” To See GOP “throw aside all of their values and principles and just bow in allegiance to this narcissistic bigoted bully”

Sen. Tim Kaine really nails it here, speaking with CNN’s Katlin Collins, on the current state of the Trumpified Republican Party. Check it out!

“Trump is both Donald Trump [and] TrumpISM. Donald Trump has now taken over the Republican Party. They get on bended knee and do what he says. And, I do think that for Joe Biden, who was in the Senate for decades before he became Vice President and President, watching one of the two main political parties in the United States decided to throw aside all of their values and principles and just bow in allegiance to this narcissistic bigoted bully is very troubling to him.

So, it may be about Trump, but I think it’s more broadly about TrumpISM. What Joe Biden wants to do, what I want to do is turn a corner and make sure that small-d democrats beat autocrats. It’s democrats beat autocrats all over the globe right now. That’s what Russia/Ukraine is all about right now, that’s with so many of the struggles in the globe are about. We’re coming up on our 250th anniversary as a nation in 2026 and we have to make sure that the United States embraces democracy and rejects autocracy. And I do think that is a motivator for Joe Biden, it is a motivator for me, and I think it is a motivator for American voters.

Joe Biden has got a record to run on – dramatically low  unemployment, dramatically accelerated job growth, growing salaries in the middle class. He’s got a lot to run on, and I am running on those things too –  I am on the ballot next year. And everywhere I go in Virginia, I am pitching results that Joe Biden and the Democratic Congress has managed to achieve under tough circumstances. And so look, Joe Biden is running for president, and I am running with him. And I am pitching the results that we are achieving…I’ve been in many races where the  polls might not have been completely pleasant at some point along the way. But if you do the work and you listen to people, and you produce results, I usually count on the American voters to geit it right. And I think they’re going to get it right in 2024.
