Donald Trump campaign manager accuses Tim Kaine of sexism for interrupting female moderator

The campaign manager for Donald Trump accused Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine of sexism for interrupting the female moderator of Tuesday night’s debate.

“How many times has @TimKaine ignored and interrupted the female moderator tonight?” asked Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s campaign manager.

She capped off her tweet: “#sexist.”

Kaine interrupted debate moderator Elaine Quijano, a CBS News anchor, countless times as he faced off with his Republican opponent, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.

Kaine’s interruptions were not only noticed by Republicans. 

David Axelrod, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, made note of it on Twitter:

A representative for the Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Tuesday night’s political duel in Virginia was the only scheduled vice presidential debate of 2016.
