It was a sh*tshow from start to finish.
On Monday, Senator Kamala Harris, running mate to Joe Biden headed to Wisconsin as the first stop official on the campaign trail.
It’s nice to know that Democrats have found Wisconsin since 2016.
To be fair to the DNC, there have been some pretty notable events in Kenosha in the last few weeks that drew their attention to the state that Hillary completely ignored.
Harris landed and the Media(D) went crazy fangirling because she was wearing Converse high-tops with her pantsuit.

Whatevs, Kamala. You do you.
Harris pandered to some blue-collar workers which is predictable, but also an interesting choice for the party that is supported by rich elites–in Hollywood, Academia, the Media, big corporations, and many of the Big Tech über-wealthy.
As mentioned by Fox News reporter, Peter Doocy, Harris also spoke with Jacob Blake’s family. She said that they are “an incredible family.”

I guess Jacob Blake Sr.’s antisemitism didn’t come up in conversation, then.
Nor did Jacob Blake Jr.’s sexual assault accusation, apparently.
Harris then spoke about the COVID-19 pandemic and made it about race, sex, and immigration.
As the pandemic still rages, essential workers—who are disproportionately Black, people of color, immigrants, women, and members of other marginalized communities—continue to sacrifice so much. Today, we pay tribute to them. pic.twitter.com/fgMhnAUKqe

Then, one of the most awkward moments of the day occurred when Harris was introduced by Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes.
Harris had already given remarks on the “dignity of work,” a theme of the campaign, and Barnes figured the vice presidential hopeful would be answering questions as reporters bemoan a lack of access to Harris and her running mate, presidential nominee Joe Biden.
“We are very honored, proud and lucky to have Senator, soon-to-be Vice President, Harris with us today, and I will pass it back over to you. I know you want to take some questions before you get out of here,” Barnes said before reaching over and offering the microphone to Harris.
Before Harris could take it from Barnes, a member of Harris’ staff could be heard saying, “Oh, I think we’re all set.”
“Thank you all, we’re all set. Thank you,” another voice said as shuffling began.
Barnes then said into the microphone, “Oh, all right.”

After the event, she met with the handful of supporters and made the election about herself.
After her roundtable with Black biz owners in Milwaukee, @KamalaHarris walked out to address ~45 fans standing across the street. “I need your help in Milwaukee, OK? We’re going to get this done. Make sure everybody votes early, right?” @axios pic.twitter.com/NYiZBBseYR

Gosh, she’s so unlikable!
Her praise of the Blake family isn’t winning friends, either.
Harris told Jacob Blake, a man who has been “credibly accused” of sexual assault that she is “proud” of him.
It’s kind of a funny statement from the “I believe women” Senator who was absolutely atrocious to Justice Brett Kavanaugh when ridiculous accusations of alleged attempted sexual assault were brought forward at the eleventh hour.
Harris was pilloried on Twitter for her comments praising Jacob Blake.
PROUD of him? He’s accused of breaking into a sleeping woman’s house, sexually assaulting her, humiliating her & later returning to harass her. Then the cops she called for help say he resisted arrest, assaulted them & went for his knife. How about a word for his victim, Senator? https://t.co/IryYbPAuf6

Imagine being the woman Jacob Blake sexually assaulted/harassed and hearing that Kamala Harris, a VP candidate said she was proud of him.

Kamala Harris told Jacob Blake that she is proud of him.
He raped someone and violated a restraining order multiple times.
He had a warrant out for his arrest. He resisted and was shot.
Now he is honored like a saint.
Imagine how his victim feels.

Harris told Jacob Blake that she is proud of him, though Blake's ex-girlfriend alleges he broke into her house while she was sleeping next to her child, sexually assaulted her with his finger, sniffed it, and said, “Smells like you’ve been with other men."https://t.co/aTo6EgQDrh

Kamala Harris says she’s proud of Jacob Blake after meeting with his family.
Harris, just like the entire NBA, refused to address the brutal sexual assault allegation against Jacob Blake.

The best take on this was Buck Sexton with the mic drop…
Democrats havent rallied around an accused rapist like this since Bill Clinton was Presidenthttps://t.co/27nTwjaryO

That was BRU-TAL…and well-deserved.
Kamala Harris is a ridiculous, pandering hack.
The Democratic nominee is a confused, doddering liar and his running mate is a hypocrite who has a history of refusing to reach across the aisle and has a voting record that is further left than Bernie Sanders.
Interesting choice, Dems.
Good luck in November!
