Kamala Harris Complains Her News Coverage Would Be Better If She Was White Man

Published

on

Vice President Kamala Harris is reportedly complaining behind the scenes about the news coverage on her performance, saying that her unprecedented unpopularity is caused by her race and gender.

According to The New York Times, Harris has been “privately” telling her allies that she would get better media coverage if she were any of her 48 white male predecessors.

Harris has even turned to prominent political names like failed 2008 and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton — who was also notoriously unpopular — for advice on her next moves.

“There is a double standard; it’s sadly alive and well,” Clinton told The New York Times. “A lot of what is being used to judge her, just like it was to judge me, or the women who ran in 2020, or everybody else, is really colored by that.”

Harris has also reportedly been complaining about the “difficulties” she has when trying to do the jobs she has been assigned by the White House, like being placed in charge of the illegal immigration crisis at the southern border.

After being placed in charge of the border crisis, Harris took nearly 100 days to visit the border while also falsely claiming on multiple occasions that she had visited the border.

According to The New York Times report, Democrat Representative Henry Cuellar (TX) “said his experiences with Ms. Harris’s team had been disappointing. When Mr. Cuellar heard Ms. Harris was traveling to the border in June, he had his staff call her office to offer help and advice for her visit. He never received a callback.”

“I say this very respectfully to her: I moved on,” Mr. Cuellar told The New York Times. “She was tasked with that job, it doesn’t look like she’s very interested in this, so we are going to move on to other folks that work on this issue.”

Harris has also been the subject of controversy outside of her duties. For example, Harris recently praised a student who had claimed Israel was committing an “ethnic genocide,” saying she was “glad” the student expressed her “truth” and that it “should not be suppressed.”

    Her news coverage would certainly be better if she was a competent, hard working, and likable man. Without those three caveats, it would be just the same. Her professional malfunctions have nothing to do with her race or gender. A truly good leader would have the introspective capacity to know that.

Psaki Responds To Biden Calling Reporter A ‘Stupid Son Of A B****’

Published

Jen Psaki

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary responded to Democrat President Joe Biden calling Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a b****” for asking about the inflation crisis.

“The President, the President called Peter, and [Peter Doocy] confirmed this, so this is only why I’m speaking to this, and if you have private conversations with the president, I will assure you I’m not going to convey that on your behalf,” Psaki said. “But Peter spoke to this, the President called him, he conveyed to him that it was nothing personal man and also acknowledged that all of you are going to ask him a range of questions. So I think that speaks for itself.”

Biden called Doocy a “stupid son of a b****” after Doocy asked if the inflation crisis would hurt the Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.

“Do you think inflation is a political liability for midterms?” Doocy asked.

“It’s a great asset, more inflation,” Biden responded. “What a stupid son of a b****.”

Doocy reacted to the incident in multiple interviews, revealing that Biden called him afterward and told him “it’s nothing personal, pal,” but Biden notably never apologized.

“When the president calls from the Oval Office and he says ‘it’s nothing personal, pal.’ And you know, I wasn’t particularly upset about what had happened anyway,” Doocy said on the Guy Benson Show. “I think that that’s enough just to kind of put it behind us. And I know now how much attention people pay to off-color comments like that from the president. But I think that he wanted to just clear the air and he wanted to address it, and he wanted to make sure that he didn’t that I didn’t think he was talking to me in a malicious way. And so it was a nice call. We talked for a couple of minutes right after I did Brett Baer show last night.”

“So the word ‘sorry’ was not expressed,” Guy said.

“It was not. But that’s OK,” Doocy replied.

Biden’s Energy Secretary Violated Stock Disclosure Laws 9 Times Last Year

A spokeswoman for Granholm said that the late disclosures were the fault of a “clerical error”

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm sold shares of stock 9 times last year between April to October, but did not disclose the sales “within the legally required 45-day window, according to federal disclosure documents”, reports CNBC.

The shares of stock were worth up to $240,000. A spokeswoman for Granholm blamed a “clerical error” saying the secretary paid a late filing fee. Granholm did not file any of the 9 disclosures until December after legal deadlines for all had passed.

The STOCK Act has been in place since 2012, which “expanded the accountability and reporting requirements for financial holdings, both for members of Congress and high-level employees of the Executive Branch like Granholm” reports CNBC.

“The news of Granholm’s apparent violations comes at a time when stock sales by public officials and members of Congress are getting a fresh look” reports CNBC. “During the past week, several members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have introduced or reintroduced legislation that would effectively ban lawmakers and their immediate family members from actively trading stocks while the member is in office.”

According to an analysis by Business Insider’s Dave Levinthal published earlier this month, a total of 54 members of Congress violated the STOCK Act rules just last year alone.

CNBC reports on the suspicious behavior of Granholm:

When President Joe Biden nominated her to be his energy secretary, Granholm signed a detailed Ethics Agreement in which she agreed to give up part-time jobs at the University of California and at CNN, step down from several boards, and sell millions of dollars worth of stock.

On March 22, she reported 23 stock sales, many of them blue-chip companies she had more than $10,000 of shares in.

A few months later in May, Granholm filed more transaction reports detailing how she had exercised stock options in the electric bus and battery company Proterra and then sold all her shares, worth between $1 million and $5 million, on May 24.

But in between the March blue chip sales and the May Proterra sale, Granholm made 6 of the 9 stock sales that didn’t get disclosed until December.
