Tim Kaine wanted Floridians to know that in the election chess game, the Sunshine State could choose the winner.Is this guy cool or what?! Watch Tim's full pickup speech above.
“If [Trump] loses Florida, it’s checkmate,” he said. “Let’s do some checkmate and win.”
The Democratic vice presidential candidate, in town for a private fundraiser at the home of Miami-Dade County Commission Chairman Jean Monestime, stopped by Liberty City for a “block party” with fellow Virginian Pusha T, a rapper. Pusha T did not perform but introduced Kaine and echoed his message on the importance of voting.
“When he says ‘it was locker room talk, it’s just what men do,’ hold on a second,” Kaine said.“What you saw was the real Donald Trump, but that’s not what real men do.”
Kaine, a U.S. senator from Virginia and former mayor of Richmond, talked about Clinton’s recognition of and plan to combat climate change, which is already affecting Floridians and people in his home state, and contrasted the stance to Trump’s view that it’s a hoax.
Kaine brought up his years in Honduras — along with a few lines of Spanish — and said Trump’s second debate vow to jail Hillary Clinton if elected reminded him of what it’s like in non-democratic countries.
“He’s trying to say that if he loses, it’s because it’s rigged,” Kaine said. “Here’s what we gotta do. We’ve got to make sure that the margin that he loses by is so big and so clear and so powerful and so unmistakable that when he stands up and says ‘Poor me’ and ‘it was rigged against me,’ nobody will believe him.”
