The Democratic Senator from California, Kamala Harris, has been selected as Joe Biden’s running mate in the 2020 Presidential Election. The announcement comes at nearly the zero-hour as the Democratic National Convention is next week. Biden previously announced that his pick would be a woman and outside pressure possibly influenced his decision to pick a black woman, or at least a woman that identifies as black in Kamala Harris.
Biden (or at least, his campaign) choosing Kamala Harris as a running mate shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. The Democratic Party built her up over a period of many years for a moment just like this. Going all the way back to 2017 when she sworn into the Senate as an Indian American by none other than Joe Biden himself. Harris has had several spotlight moments at random Senate hearings alongside the likes of another failed Presidential candidate in Cory Booker. There were even rumors of a Harris/Booker ticket. Obviously that’s not going to happen.
Will BLM Vote For The Top Cop?
Kamala Harris was the Attorney General of California before she became Senator. As California’s “top cop,” her record is spotty at best. Tulsi Gabbard did an excellent job calling Harris out for clear hypocritical statements and previous anti-liberal positions she held as Attorney General. Harris was against legalizing marijuana and against outside investigators coming in to review police shootings. Senator Harris even set up a program that would have locked parents up for their children being chronically truant from school.
Skeletons In The Closet
Then there is the case of former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown. Kamala Harris had a widely-publicized affair with Brown early in her career, while he was married. Willie Brown stated numerous times, on print and on air, that he helped her politically as a result of their relationship. Brown gave her certain jobs and recommended her to certain people that she wouldn’t have had access to through anyone other than him at that point in her career. In other words, Brown is saying that she “slept” to the top.
Over 100 black men signed a letter demanding that Joe Biden select a black woman as his VP pick. It’s not quite clear if that letter really made a difference because before it was released to the public, Biden’s campaign had already announced nearly a dozen black women that were in consideration. Although Kamala’s mother is full-blooded East Indian and her father is at best a 50% black man from Jamaica, she counts as black.
Biden Is As Surprised As Anyone
Joe Biden does not appear to have any control of his campaign. He is essentially an empty suit. Criticism towards selection of Kamala Harris shouldn’t even go to Biden, it should go to the campaign team. Why would they select a woman like Harris who has so many skeletons and her closet and obvious weak points? Anyone with the mind of a child could draw up attack ads on Harris. As a matter of fact, drawing up attack ads on Biden based on Kamala Harris’ own words is a no-brainer.
But, here we are with a Biden/Harris ticket. The think pieces have already been written and edited, just awaiting release. Attack ads from the Trump campaign are already out, and they’re effortless to the abundance of b-roll from the both of them. 2020 has been a wild ride and the ride just got a little bumpier.
