Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) — with her poll numbers tanking — is trying to blame the Democratic Party for being unable to elect a black woman to the Oval Office.
This “elephant in the room,” as Harris calls it in the interview shown below, is that America isn’t ready for a woman — especially a woman of color — to be president of the United States.
Harris believes most Americans find it difficult for voters to imagine the first black female president simply because it’s never happened before in this country.
The interviewer reminded her that the country elected Barack Obama as president.
Yet Harris brushed that aside while sharing a story that didn’t have any connection to what she was talking about, as you will see in the video.
Sen. Harris, in my opinion, got up that day and thought, “Which card should I play today, the woman card or the race card?”
She decided to play both.
Here we go again.
It seems to me that Democrats play the victim and try to elicit sympathy from others by accusing people of being racist, sexist, or what have you.
When Republicans lose, they blame themselves; when Democrats lose, they blame everyone else.
The way I look at it is this: If you want to be president of the United States, and all you have are excuses as to why you were not elected — then you have no business running in the first place.
What Kamala Harris fails to realize is that Barack Obama was elected because he was black, in my opinion. But he did such a poor job — led as he was by by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and their agenda — that I believe it sullied the next couple of generations of black candidates for Democrats.
When Kamala Harris says “America,” she’s not talking about America overall. She’s running for the Democratic nomination — so she’s talking about “her” people.
She is essentially calling voters in her party racist, which is bold.
Seriously, her campaign is in such a tailspin that she’s holding that victim card with a very tight grip. This way she can claim it’s not her fault when she drops out.
