Having received word Tuesday afternoon that Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) would be Joe Biden’s running mate, CNN was smitten and thus Zuckerville citizens had their marching orders. In the moments after the announcement, she was hailed as a “fighter,” “historic” figure making for a “remarkable moment” that will help “expand” America’s “imagination” “about who can lead.”
Chief political correspondent Dana Bash applauded Biden for the pick, boasting that him choosing Harris despite her attacks on him in the first debate “show[ed] what kind of a — a person he is and a leader that he is that he can put that behind him.”
The Lead fill-in host Pamela Brown emphasized it was “a significant choice” in choosing one of “the best known black woman [sic] in politics,” which teed up far-left political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson to give her own endorsement of the ticket.
Henderson connected Harris to Shirley Chisholm’s 1972 presidential bid because Chisholm wanted to, in Henderson’s words, “really expand the imagination and expand America’s imagination about who could be a president, who could lead and so now we have Kamala Harris almost 50 years after Shirley Chisholm ascending to this nomination.”
Henderson then implored viewers to think about how much “hard work” any black woman has had to do in order to ascend to public office, swooning over her “enormous amount of hard work and focus and grit she has done over this last many decades in her career to get to this point.”
She continued by trumpeted the “historic day” challenging America to dream and envision someone who’s “a fighter” creating “viral moments” (against conservatives) as vice president:
And so, yes, this is an historic day. I imagine women around the country, particularly women who are upset about what happened in 2016 with Hillary Clinton not winning that campaign, it’s a day that I think a lot of women are looking — you know, looked forward to for a long time. We’ll obviously see what happens in November, but, again, I think this will expand people’s ideas about who can lead, right? I mean, if you think about black women in leadership, not many black women in leadership even in your own kind of lives in offices, it is very rare that black women accede to positions of power. We should not take this moment for granted. We should not think of it as inevitable because it was a long time com with a lot of fighting by black women in particular and women just in general and I think if you think about Kamala Harris, she herself a fighter, right? Joe Biden certainly didn’t like what she did in that debate. But it proved that she was a fighter. If you think about the viral moments she’s had with people like Jeff Sessions, people like Gina Haspel, it was about being a fighter and being aggressive and I think if you’re Joe Biden, that’s one of the qualities you want to see in a partner.
A child of Democratic politics herself (and thus invested in its future), Brown concurred about what “a remarkable moment” this day has already been with the choice of someone who’s had a “really remarkable rise.”
It was over before, but WOW. It’s really over now.
“Come on, MAN!”
Selecting Harris was a very good move. Trump will try to do to her what he did to Clinton and do severe damage to himself in the process. He won’t be able to restrain himself. The personal attacks will alienate women and minority voters.
I love that Joe Biden’s handlers picked Kamala Harris.
She was not only almost as responsible for imprisoning blacks as Biden, himself, but she also bragged that she put them behind bars while smoking the same pot they were jailed for at the same time!
What portion of the voting public do these two appeal to?
Not working Americans who they’ve promised to raise taxes on.
Not the fuel industry workers who they’ve told to “learn to code.”
Not blacks who they’ve imprisoned and kept poor.
Not legal Hispanics whose wages will be diluted by low wage illegals.
Illegals will love them, but, technically, they cannot (should not) vote here.
@Nathan Blue: Who better to get Joe through the blazing desert o this campaign but Willies CamelA, will that be 1 hump or 2?
Tulsi knew, She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations, and then laughed about it when she was asked if she’d ever smoked marijuana. She blocked evidence that would have freed a man from death row until the courts forced her to do so. She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California.
harris is a terrible pick. She does nothing for the ticket. She is not VP material. harris is a train wreck
Keep telling yourself that. She’s black, but also has a history of being tough on crime. She’s no dogmatist, however. She supports reform of the criminal justice system and favors the federal legalization of marijuana, as do 2/3 of American voters. She’s highly articulate in a debate and will be so at any campaign podium. She’s a consumer protection activist, pro-environmental protection, and an advocate of individual rights to privacy. She can effectively go on the attack when necessary, and may take that role by responding to Trump’s lies and personal attacks while Biden maintains proper presidential demeanor. I imagine republican political strategists with any sense were hoping for someone other than Harris.
So what? Is that a credible attribute for being VP?
Oh, boy, was she. She imprisoned black men for slight marijuana crimes and then admitted she also smoked marijuana. She kept people in prison so that those prisoners could be used as slave labor for the State of California.
She also said she believe Joe Biden’s accusers of sexual misconduct. I guess she though letting Willie Brown hump her while he was married was not sexual misconduct on her part. She knew he was married. Kamala-toe Harris; climbing the political ladder one bed at a time.
So… let me get this straight. First, Kamala tried to destroy Kavanaugh based on completely unverified accusations that absolutely no one could corroborate but now is the VP to a person that has a credible accusation of rape against him. I guess Democrats just turn that BelieveHer shit on and off like a switch.
Kamala even said SHE believed Tara. But, this is what Democrat convictions looks like.
@Greg: She’ll certainly be a better debate opponent than Biden will, that is for sure. Don’t know how all that “racist” stuff will fly against Pence, though. She may need to know something about some issues, though.
Ask a few black voters whether they consider that a point in her favor or not. Assuming that you know any.
If black voters wanted a black for the highest office in the land, they would have voted for her, or Cory Booker, in the primaries. They didn’t.
Kamala-toe Harris is a whore.
@retire05: Doesnt sound like Willie will vote for her, https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/willie-brown-kamala-harris-should-say-no-to-vice-presidency/ar-BB17J8hG
Soccer moms might not be so enthusiastic about “the other woman”, that dates grandpa for career advance.
According to Joe (and you, apparently) you only have to ask any one black voter… they all think alike.
Harris really bothers you, doesn’t she? Black, obviously way the hell smarter than you are, far more accomplished, and certainly less vulgar… Who knows… She might be running for president following her stint as Vice President. Maybe by then you’ll have learned how to pronounce her name.
@Greg: We dont owe Kamala a damn thing because she was born mixed and female. She slept with an fat influential married Black mayor 30 years older than her to advance her career. Ewwww.
Most likely dropped out for a promise of position like the other dem whores in the race. A bit of political quid pro quo.
Seems Tulsi was the only one that wasnt for sale.
America cant afford these marxist sellout whores that includes Quid Pro Joe and his crime family.
Keep telling yourself that.
She’s a joke.
Trump is “blacker” than she is, and recognized as such by most blacks.
Yeah, you know she’s trouble for Trump, alright. Just listen to yourselves. A former prosecuting attorney… The Pence/Harris debates could be interesting.
She is not trouble for President Trump. Keep telling yourself that. She is an unmitigated train wreck.

I guess what is worrisome is how people like yourself can accept such a lying, cynical hypocrite as Kamala so enthusiastically. Perhaps it is merely more desperation, but she implied Biden was a racist and said she believed the women that accused him of abuse and rape. Now, with a big smile on her face, she joins Gropin’, Rapin’, Quid pro quo, genius Joe in their mission to destroy this country.
Anything to distract from the Trump/Biden debates…
@Nathan Blue: No doubt the “moderators” can lend a hand in the Pence/Harris debate. NOTHING can help Biden.
I’ve found people either are only watching Left-wing media and are indoctrinated, or they read widely and think for themselves.
Luckily the number of people in the former group is shrinking by the day.
