This video speaks volumes about the diametrically opposed policies of VP Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris, whom he has picked as his running mate.
In the primaries she vehemently opposed Joe Biden on bussing and she was also big on pushing ‘believe all women’ with respect to Biden’s accusers surrounding sexual assault.
Tulsi Gabbard ripped Harris to shreds over her justice record, saying she even blocked evidence for people on death row that would have exonerated them.
Ever the attention seeker, last year she admitted to smoking weed (which she denied in 1993) and said she was a big fan of hip hop music stars Tupac & Snoop Dogg while she was in college. She graduated in 1986. These artists came to fame in the 1990s.
Harris came out in support of actor Jussie Smollett who staged a hate crime hoax without seeing any evidence. She tweeted,
“@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery.
This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate”
When the truth was revealed she responded, “I think that the facts are still unfolding, and, um, I’m very, um, concerned about obviously, the initial, um, allegation that he made about what might have happened” going on to say she wouldn’t make any further comments until the outcome of the investigation.
Her policy positions are only slightly to the right of Bernie Sanders. Her plan to be the Democratic nominee in the debates sunk because she was cornered to back policies owned by Sanders and Elizabeth Warren which she wasn’t prepared to defend and regularly flipped.
During the first Democratic debate, she raised her hand in support of eliminating private insurance, only to back off from the position again the very next morning.
Harris was also subject of an open letter written by her ex boyfriend former mayor of San Francisco Willie Brown who claimed to have appointed her to two well paid state commissions while dating when he was speaker of the California Assembly.
Harris also supported a bill that allowed men who identified as women to compete in women’s sports.
She was also humiliated when probing Bret Kavanaugh during the SCOTUS confirmation hearings by having no evidence to back her claims in relation to the Mueller investigation.
She is an each way bet. The jokes about her will write themselves. Identity politics at its finest. Diversity of skin tone vs diversity of thought.
Now that 59% of Americans polled think Biden will step down during his first term, will they want Harris to take his place? A candidate who stands for nothing will fall for anything.
