The old adage of ‘you are who you hang out with’ could not be truer. Apparently Hillary Clinton rubbed off too much on her Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine. Now it has trickled down to his children. Former Vice Presidential candidate, Tim Kaine’s son, Linwood Michael Kaine was arrested in St. Paul, Minnesota for allegedly participating in a riot at an anti-Trump protest.
The riots coincided with the rallies in support of President Trump on March 4th. Police were required to arrest numerous individuals after things took a rather violent turn. One of those arrested was Kaine’s son. Kaine and four friends were arrested on suspicion of second degree rioting, The sixth person associated with him was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Someone set off a smoke bomb in the Capitol rotunda after horns, whistles, and chants were used to disrupt the peaceful rally. Kaine is a graduate of Carleton College and currently lives in Minneapolis. He goes by his nickname ‘Woody.’
Law enforcement officials reported to the media that he was arrested and jailed in Ramsey County and released pending further investigation. Local authorities indicate he might face misdemeanor charges. However, Senator Kaine of Virginia released a statement of support following his son’s arrest.
“We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues. They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully.”
Authorities confirmed Linwood Kaine was arrested after his friends were seen throwing fireworks at the protest. They also indicated they had to use some force when detaining him in custody.
When the Tea Party protests were happening in 2010 Democrats could not cease to take the opportunity to denounce them and call for an end to the protests. Those protests were not even violent. Now that some of their own are partaking in violent and disruptive protests, rallies and riots, they are completely for it. Just another example of their liberal hypocrisy.
