The Republican U.S. Senate candidate running to take the seat of Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) had to make an awkward pause during a debate response on Friday night as the audience drowned him out in laughter for saying President Donald Trump is standing up to Vladimir Putin.

In the video uploaded to Twitter, candidate Corey Stewart — who has been dogged by his own racist comments and advocacy for the Confederacy — was speaking up for the Republican president when he went a bit too far for the audience.

Attacking Kaine as “weak on Russia’,”Stewart offered, “He was noticeably silent when the Russians shot down a Malaysian airliner when President Obama was in office. He was noticeably silent when the Russians invaded the Crimea when President Obama was in office.”

He then added, “We have a president who is standing up to the Russians, and now, Sen. Kaine…” at which point the audience began laughing loudly and Stewart stood looked flustered before soldiering on as the guffaws died down.

Biden says Trump strategy makes Iran conflict ‘more likely’

Published

on

President Donald Trump's strategy on Iran, including abandoning a nuclear pact, is a "self-inflicted disaster" that could push the United States towards war with a major adversary, Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden warned Thursday.

Hours after Iran shot down a US spy drone, sending tensions soaring, the former vice president said Trump was failing to prevent the Islamic republic from obtaining a nuclear weapon and to secure energy supplies through the Strait of Hormuz.
