(Tea Party PAC) – Well, the Trump campaign didn’t wait a moment to respond to the announcement that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) would be Joe Biden’s running mate in the November election.
The Biden campaign had been dragging their feet for months, as they mulled over the various women, particularly women of color, that they’d selected for the shortlist (nevermind experience, integrity, honesty…they just wanted someone who checked the right intersectional boxes.)
However, it appears that President Donald Trump is quite pleased that his rival is going with Harris.
In fact, he says, she was his “No. 1 pick”!
Indeed, Harris is an interesting choice. Despite briefly being touted as the frontrunner in the primary race and enjoying status as a media darling, particularly when she grilled Joe Biden about his stance on bussing, Harris’ star faded quickly.
She gave Biden a high-profile tongue lashing where she implied he was racist for his previous stance on busing to integrate schools, which he opposed as a Senator in the 1970s (yes, when Harris was herself a literal schoolchild…he’s very old).
However, she herself was destroyed effortlessly by the cool, clam, and savvy Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), who could have had a real chance at challenging Trump in November had the Democrats not been terrified of her anti-establishment views and willingness to call out the DNC political machine (too bad she gave up all semblance of integrity and endorsed Biden).
Anyway, in the midst of radical racial rhetoric dominating the left’s narrative on the culture, it certainly is an interesting choice for Biden to go with a woman who, as the first female Attorney General of California, locked up many, many people of color.
She also, as Gabbard had brutally exposed, laughed heartily about having smoked pot in college (something made even worse by the fact that the album she claimed to be listening to at the time hadn’t even been released when she was in college) to try to pander to black voters on The Breakfast Club after having locked up POC for doing the very same as DA of San Francisco and then AG of California.
Not sure why Biden thinks she’s a good choice…but Trump sure does!
On Tuesday, the president commented that Harris “did very poorly in the primaries, and that’s like a poll,” the president said.
He also condemned Harris for her behavior during the explosive Senate confirmation hearing for now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Of his own Vice President, he said, “He’s been a great vice president, and I will take him over Kamala and the horrible way she, again, treated Justice Kavanaugh.”
“I thought she was the meanest, the most horrible, most disrespectful of anybody in the U.S. Senate.”
