Normally, I would be confident that a stunner like this would be a guaranteed winner, but, 1) this is Kamala Harris, and she frequently talks like English is a foreign languge and 2) her two most high-ranking Democrat colleagues, President Biden and Nancy Pelosi, are also likely to make no sense for extended periods, though in their cases…well, let’s just leave it at that.
On the Today show, Craig Melvin asked the eminently qualified Vice President—she’s “of color,”,female, and has a pulse—- whether it is time for the White House to try a new strategy to deal with the pandemic. This was Harris’s verbatim answer:
It is time for us to do what we have been doing and that time is every day. Every day it is time for us to agree that there are things and tools that are available to us to slow this thing down.
Now who can argue with that? Melvin, since he works for NBC and has no journalistic integrity or respect for his audience whatsoever, did not say, as he was ethically obligated to do, “What? What does that mean?” As for Harris, this is one more example of how much contempt she has for the public. Saying something like that can only mean, ‘I think you are all dupes and fools, that I can get away with anything, and only those fascist conservative news sources will ever criticize me.’
Her Today Show answer barely topped her reply earlier to CBS News’s Margaret Brennan, who asked Harris, “Was it wrong to consider inflation transitory? I mean, these price spikes seem like they’re going to be with us for a while.”
We have to address the fact that we have got to deal with the fact that folks are paying for gas, paying for groceries, and [they] need solutions to it. So let’s talk about that. Short-term solution includes what we need to do around the supply chain, right? So, we went to the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Savannah, Georgia, and said, “Hey, guys, no more five days a week, eight hours a day; 24/7, let’s move the products because people need their product — they need what they need.” We’re dealing with it in terms of the long term. And that’s about what we need to do to pass Build Back Better. It strengthens our economy. What do we need to do in terms of bringing down the cost of living, right?”
