“How many times has @TimKaine ignored and interrupted the female moderator tonight? #sexist,” Conway tweeted Tuesday night.

“Is it sexist when Kaine interrupts Pence constantly or just what debaters do to win debates?” a New York Times reporter then asked Conway in a tweet.

Conway replied to political reporter Nick Confessore by calling Kaine’s debate strategy “unsuccessful” and referencing former President Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonWhat did the Founders most fear about impeachment?

During the debate, Quijano admonished both vice presidential nominees for repeatedly interrupting each other.

“Gentlemen, the people at home can not understand either one of you when you speak over each other,” said Quijano, a digital reporter with CBS News.
