Awkward! Kaine says candidates should disclose ‘foreign entanglements’ and be in ‘good-enough’ health

Well, this is awkward.

Presidential candidates should be transparent about their  health and possible “foreign entanglements.” Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine said on Tuesday.

Kaine’s remarks were actually aimed at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, but they seemed to accurately fit his own running mate Hillary Clinton.

“You want to know if we’ll disclose our finances, so you can understand how we’ve managed our own household or business and see if we owe anybody anything,” he said a campaign stop in Erie, Pennsylvania, pointing out that voters had “simple questions” for candidates.

“We want to make sure that candidates aren’t involved in any foreign entanglements that could impact our national security, and we want to know that they’re in good-enough health to perform their duties,” Kaine said, oblivious to the irony of his statements.

Clinton has been dealing with questions about her own health recently and has been at the center of reports involving her “foreign entanglements” during her time as secretary of state.

“When candidates are on the up-and-up, they have no problem disclosing information on all these points. You have a right to know. You have a right to expect,” Kaine said.  “And a candidate that’s on the up-and-up has no problem giving you the facts.”

Which team is he on, anyway?
