Speaking to CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday, Kaine asserted he finds Weinstein’s alleged behavior “low-life” and “unacceptable,” and urged all leaders to condemn Weinstein’s actions.
However, Kaine hedged his bets some when asked when his former running mate Hillary Clinton would call out Weinstein. Weinstein was a major donor for the Democratic National Committee.
“Look, Alisyn, you know, I’m nobody’s press secretary, I’m a U.S. Senator, and I’m telling you that sexual harassment is unacceptable and I really think it’s low-life behavior,” he explained. “Hillary Clinton speaks out against sexual harassment often and I’m sure she’ll have a word to say when the time is right for her.”
“But you think she should speak out against this?” host Alisyn Camerota pressed.
Kaine asserted that “any leader” should speak out against sexual harassment.
