Veep Harris Hypocritically Mum On Cuomo Charges

Yeah, such a friend to fellow women.

Vice President Kamala Harris is a supporter of women, but only certain kinds of women. If a woman makes a baseless sexual harassment charge against a Republican then she’s all in. No insult or canard is too over the top for her in that case. But if a woman, actually several women, make those charges against a Democrat, well then, it’s a different story.

Harris may be thinking, somewhat rightly, that the nation is so polarized that no matter what she says or doesn’t say Democrats will back Cuomo and thus so should she. However, if she thinks that then her political radar is broken. Numerous New York and other Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, are jumping off the Cuomo ship. In New York the Democrat mutiny is on full scale. The man is toast. But Harris stays on the ship. Loyalty? Nah. Stupidity, Yup. The kind of stupidity that will show up on Republican attack media.

FNC: “While more and more members of both parties are weighing in on the sexual harassment allegations brought by multiple women against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, one voice absent in the conversation has been Vice President Kamala Harris’. Harris was a vocal opponent of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when he faced allegations from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford during his confirmation process, and she even said she believed women who had accused President Biden of inappropriate touching in the past.” She tagged her current boss with this in 2016 in regards to Biden’s own sexual harassment allegations. “I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it.”

On Kavanaugh she was bat-guano crazy. “Christine Blasey Ford, who literally had nothing to gain by coming forward … she looked at the fact that this guy was being nominated and said, ‘the American people had the right to know what I know,’ and she was treated like a criminal,” Harris told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in September 2019. After Kavanaugh was confirmed? “So yes, I call for impeachment,” Harris said. “I believe that is the clearest way for us to get an investigation of these allegations and we should open an investigation of these allegations.”

Do you believe Dr. Fauci when he says another COVID surge is on the way?

Hillary has thrown Cuomo under the bus. “These stories are difficult to read, and the allegations brought forth raise serious questions that the women who have come forward and all New Yorkers deserve answers to.”

Nancy Pelosi addressed the allegations on Sunday, “The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity,” Pelosi said in a statement to media. Pelosi supports an independent investigation. But not Harris. The longer Harris waits, the more overwhelming her hypocrisy becomes. Voters, even Democrat female voters, may eventually notice.
