Sen. Tim Kaine Bashes Donald Trump Over Refusing To Release Tax Returns

In Tim Kaine's introduction yesterday in Florida, he gave a very down to earth speech and then turned his eye on Trump's bogus excuses for not releasing his tax returns.

I took Saturday off mostly and didn't get a chance to watch any of Sen. Tim Kaine's introductory speech until late last night.

I was not a real fan of his, but was surprised to see how relaxed, folksy and down to earth he was after getting a proper introduction from HRC.

This roll-out was nothing like Donald Trump's twenty nine minute self congratulatory pimping of himself before he finally let Mike Pence take the stage by himself.

Like many of you, I would have been thrilled with either Warren, Brown or Perez, but I don't want to re-litigate the primary war. We've had a few articles and thousands of comments since Friday, debating her choice of a running mate.

Kaine discussed some of the policy positions HRC has staked out and then said, "And we'll make sure that Wall Street, corporations and the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes. And while we're on the subject of taxes, where are Donald Trump's tax returns? Raise your hands if you think those returns would show that he's paid his fair share of taxes? I don't see a lot of hands."

The media must renew it's call to see Trump's tax returns. This man lies minute after minute, hour after hour, day after day and the media shrugs it off like it's just another typical Trump moment.

What a kidder that Trump is, right?

This is serious.

If he's going to taut his business expertise as his only qualification for the job, then he needs to release those tax returns.
