The word about town is that the Democrats are frantic to rebuild the trust voters have in Kamala Harris. I find that to be odd. I wasn’t aware that anybody ever trusted Harris to begin with. But, it’s not Kamala’s fault. Who would have suspected that people would get angry if a vice president sided with terrorists? After all, she is a Democrat and her job is to follow the policies of Joe Biden. She was morally obligated to, especially after the Speaker of the House Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did so herself.
Harris has hired a couple of image builders to try to pump up her low approval ratings. She’ll need them in order to be prepared after Biden’s brain makes the complete transition to tapioca. But, the Democrats look to be in trouble in 2022 and even a worse predicament in 2024. Neither Biden nor Harris can win and there is no one warming up in the bullpen except Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.
Harris ran afoul of critics when she seemingly agreed with a student who accused Israel of ethnic cleansing against terrorists.
The student said:
“I see that over the summer, there have been, like, protests and demonstrations in astronomical numbers standing with Palestine, but then just a few days ago, there were funds allocated to continue backing Israel — which hurts my heart because it’s an ethnic genocide and a displacement of people — the same that happened in America — and I’m sure you’re aware of this.”
“This is about the fact that your voice, your perspective, your experience, your truth should not be suppressed.”
Her office has since been contacting various Jewish organizations to clarify that Harris did not support the characterization offered by the student of Israel, despite her lack of disagreement at the time.
“There is nothing wrong with criticizing the policies of the state of Israel,” responded Anti-Defamation League national director Jonathan Greenblatt. “But it’s deeply problematic when you demonize or delegitimize the country, because we’ve seen how that kind of slander is used, and can spark anti-Semitic incidents here at home.”
The CNN report from Sunlen Serfaty outlined other instances from Harris’ short service as vice president that have inspired skepticism about her ability to succeed in her office. Among those where when she snapped at a reporter for asking if she had ever been to the border, and when she told Guatemalan immigrants thinking about coming to the U.S., “Don’t come.”
