Hillary Clinton’s running mate Sen. Tim Kaine made excuses for the Democratic nominee not holding a press conference in over 275 days, prompting reporters to roar with laughter as Kaine argued that “She talks to the press a lot.”

Kaine appeared on ABC and CBS programming over the weekend and was asked to explain why Hillary has not held a press conference for so long.

On ABC’s This Week, Kaine argued that Hillary has been very transparent with the press.

“Our campaign reporters and others say she doesn’t really answer that many questions. Is this going to change?” asked host Martha Raddatz.

“I have to push back on the notion she hasn’t done a press conference.” Kaine responded.

“She gave a speech to the National Association of Black Journalists within the last month, where there were also Hispanic journalists.” he added.

“She did a press conference there and members of mainstream media outlets, television networks, asked her questions,” Kaine said.

Raddatz pushed back and pressed Kaine further, asking “So can we expect a press conference, yes or no?”

“Um, there’s been one in the last month.” Kaine responded, “You’re going to see Hillary very, very accessible to the press.”

It seems that, like Hillary, Kaine doesn’t understand the difference between Hillary’s own staged events and a real unscripted open access press conference where reporters are allowed to ask anything they want to.

As we noted last month, Hillary seems to believe that doing a phone interview with CNN is the same as holding such an event.

Kaine gave the same comments on CBS’ This Morning, last week saying “Look, I don’t see what the massive difference is between a press conference and talking to the press everywhere you go.”

“She talks to the press a lot, and I’ve been with her when she’s talked to the press.” Kaine claimed.

The footage was played back by a CNN panel Sunday, who roared with laughter at the idea that Hillary is open and transparent with journalists.

“God bless the people who get to be vice-presidential nominees, because they have to say things like this,” Inside Politics host John King said.

“As journalists, we want more questions,” chimed in Reporter Sara Murray. “We want more press conferences, and we absolutely think that Hillary Clinton should be taking questions from the press regularly, which she does not do regularly. She does not hold press conferences.”

Kaine was also pressed on the latest revelations over Hillary’s email server, following the publication of the FBI’s interview notes from their meeting with Clinton.

While attempting damage limitation, Kaine repeated the lie that Hillary only used one device to access her email, a claim that has long been known to be untrue.

“What these notes demonstrate is in very significant detail why the FBI chose not to go forward with any additional proceeding,” Kaine said. “She did make a mistake, and she made it by deciding she wanted to use one device rather than multiple devices.”

The FBI found that there were 13 different mobile devices that Hillary used and could have accessed her email on.

GOP nominee Donald Trump hit out at Hillary over the discovery that she admitted she did not know what the C on State Department documents stood for.

Trump also touched on the finding that Hillary aides literally destroyed her multiple mobile devices with hammers, and deleted thousands of emails.

ABC host Raddatz asked Kaine why Hillary is hiding from questions over the revelations.

“So again, isn’t this an issue that she needs to better explain?” Raddatz asked.

Astonishingly, Kaine claimed that Hillary wants the public to have access to the information (despite the whole hammers and deleting thing).

“That’s why she asked that these materials be made public, and I think when you read the materials … they go into significant detail about why the FBI concluded that there was no need for any additional proceedings,” Kaine said.

“But Senator Kaine, she hasn’t answered questions about this. Shouldn’t she be answering questions about this?” Raddatz further asked.

“She’s answered questions about what she did and why, and then she said, look, by using one device, I made a mistake,” Kaine repeated. “I apologize for it. I’ve learned something, and I wouldn’t do it again.”
