[See NewsBusters for more.] ABC News journalist Martha Raddatz on election night struggled to not get emotional as the night got worse for Hillary Clinton. Speaking of Trump on foreign policy, her voice quivered, “I was also looking back [voice breaks] at an interview Tim Kaine gave. Tim Kaine has a son in the Marine Corps. He was asked, by John Dickerson, ‘So if Donald Trump is democratically elected, and your son is serving as a Marine, you wouldn't trust his life under that commander-in-chief? And Kaine said, ‘I wouldn't.” Struggling to hold it together, she continued, “That's a pretty extraordinary thing to say [voice breaks] if you have a son in the Marine Corps and you don’t trust the Commander in Chief.  The  people [voice breaks] in the military defend the Constitution.”
