CBS Hammers Tim Kaine on Hillary Avoiding the Press

<p>In an interview with Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine on Thursday, the hosts of <em>CBS This Morning</em> actually grilled the Virgnia senator over Hillary Clinton refusing to talk to the press. Fill-in co-host Demarco Morgan lead off the contentious exchange: <strong>&ldquo;Senator, this was Donald Trump&#39;s first meeting with a head of state as the nominee and he immediately opened up the floor to reporters for questions. When will we see Hillary open up the floor and take questions from reporters at any event?&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Kaine laughably argued: &ldquo;Well, you see Hillary take questions from reporters every day. She does &ndash; she talks to the press everywhere she goes.&rdquo; Incredulous co-host Norah O&rsquo;Donnell could be heard replying: &ldquo;Really?&rdquo; Kaine continued: &ldquo;...she did a press conference when she was at the recent meeting of the African-American and Hispanic newspaper publishers.&rdquo; Morgan pushed back: &ldquo;But that was the first time in a long time, Senator. She doesn&#39;t do it that often.&rdquo;</p>
