Veep-pick Tim Kaine spoke last night at the Democratic National Convention. He told his life story, took down Donald Trump, and glowingly endorsed Hillary. But as he was delivering his very serious speech, the internet began to realize something…
Tim Kaine is a dad.
Well, yes, he is actually a dad to three children. But he is also acting like America’s dad. With his earnest delivery, rhetorical questions like “Can I be honest with you?” and horribly bad Trump impression, he came off as a slightly nerdy, slightly boring guy who really means well and also wants to make sure you get home before curfew.
Here are our favorite tweets about Tim Kaine, dad of America.
If Obama was a cool dad, Tim Kaine is a dad dad.
