Twitter and other social media platforms were in a buzz after the Vice Presidential Debate between Mike Pence (R-IN) and Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA).
The scuttlebutt focused not only on what many saw as a condescending attitude and rude behavior by Kaine towards Gov. Mike Pence and the moderator, Elaine Quijano, as serious voters got their first look at Hillary Clinton’s choice as a Vice Presidential running mate.
But the tweets began to fly when a few also noticed Kaine’s mannerisms, which had numerous bloggers and tweeters wondering if Tim Kaine is actually a closet homosexual.
For hours after the debate was over, Twitter tweets trended from all sides of the political spectrum. Most were respectful, just asking the question “is Tim Kaine gay?”
One blogger wrote, “Watching the debate made me wonder. The guy sure looks talks and acts like it. He’s even got that gay thing with his mouth going on. Yeah, I know he is married, but that doesn’t answer the questions.”
Others noted the same thing but defended the Virginia Senator saying, “Not that there is anything wrong with that. We have the first woman candidate for a major party, why not the first gay Vice President?”
Numerous tweets echoed the same sentiment. “I didn’t realize till just now Tim Kaine is gay.” The tweeter claims to be gay himself. I guess he is using the old “it takes one to know one” logic?
Another wrote, “Tim Kaine is gay which isn’t a bad thing…”
A lot of the speculation on whether or not Senator Tim Kaine is homosexual is based not only what many perceive as his apparent effeminate mannerism, but also a fraudulent meme which was floating around last year.
Supposedly, someone captured a Tweet coming from the Senator on July 12, 2015, in which he wrote, “When my wife told me she wanted to open our marriage and take other lovers, she wasn’t rejecting me, she was embracing herself.”
Again, this is a fake tweet and the story is false! Tim Kaine and his wife, Anne Holton, do not have an open marriage.
But still, many wonder, is Tim Kaine a homosexual or possibly bisexual? And your guess is as good as mine. In fact, truth be told, I don’t care!
So far as anyone can tell, Senator Kaine hasn’t denied the rumors. As a result, the rumor mill and conspiracy hacks will speculate about his sexual orientation up until the day of the election. And beyond if Hillary wins the presidency.
