Kamala Harris cries victim as fellow Californian Feinstein, others ditch her for someone older, whiter & with testosterone

According to Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris, it’s no coincidence that the top three Democrats leading in 2020 Democrat primary polls are white men. Rather, it’s the result of biased media pundits shaping black voters’ views via their discussions on so-called “electability.”

Speaking Sunday at the NAACP’s Fight for Freedom Dinner in Detroit, the 2020 contender argued that the media’s discussions about “electability” are leading everyone, including minorities, to believe that only a white man can defeat President Donald Trump.

Listen:

“There has been a lot of conversation by pundits about ‘electability’ and who can speak to the Midwest,” she said. “But when they say that, they usually put the Midwest in a simplistic box and a narrow narrative. And too often their definition of the Midwest leaves people out.”

“It leaves out people in this room who helped build cities like Detroit. It leaves out working women who are on their feet all day — many of them working without equal pay. And the conversation too often suggests certain voters will only vote for certain candidates regardless of whether their ideas will lift up all our families. It’s shortsighted. It’s wrong. And voters deserve better.”

According to The Washington Post, her message to her predominantly black audience was to “[s]top believing the pundits’ take on who can win — and instead get behind the candidates you align with personally. While Harris is popular with many among the left — especially for her takedowns of Trump surrogates during Senate hearings — according to the most recent Quinnipiac survey, only 2 percent of voters think she can beat Trump. The number is the same when controlled for voters of color.”

Did she have a point? Some of the evidence suggests she did. For one, even some of the people who attended the dinner Sunday in Detroit complained that Harris simply wasn’t electable enough:

Second, even Harris’s fellow California lawmaker, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, has reportedly abandoned her in favor of 2020 contender former Vice President Joe Biden, a white man.

Feinstein confirmed with the media Tuesday that because she’s known Biden for 20 years, she intends to vote for him: “I love Kamala, I appreciate her, but that’s what I’m going to do. I feel very loyal to him,” she said, according to reporting by Fox News.

She added that when Biden served as the Senate Judiciary Committee chair from 1987 to 1995, he tapped her to be the “first woman” to serve on the panel.

That’s nice, but doesn’t she want to help her friend potentially become the “first woman” president of America? Apparently not, though the reason why doesn’t necessarily jibe with what Harris said.

Over at Fox News, Howard Kurtz noted that the media were “pretty positive toward Harris’ debut when her kickoff speech drew 20,000 people. The fact that she’s gotten relatively little traction since then can’t entirely be the media’s fault.”

It could very well simply be that the American people don’t care for her proposed policies, which include changing human behavior and taking away the American people’s doctor, guns and wealth.

Listen to some of his commentary below:

“Who thought Donald Trump was electable in 2016?” he said, referencing everyone’s belief Trump would lose “bigly.” “Not most of the people in my business. But maybe Kamala Harris has a case, but it’s a case she has to make before everyone comes to believe that Biden is the guy.”

But she appears to be too busy whining instead …

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE MISSING …

Even some of the candidate’s own supporters have cast doubt on her theory, including Bakari Sellers, a former South Carolina state representative turned far-left CNN commentator.

“It’s the biggest faux pas that Democrats are making this election cycle,” he said to Politico. “It disregards the fact that the only Democratic candidate to win the presidency in the last two decades was a black guy. And, second, we’ve allowed ‘working class’ to enter our lexicon and only mean white working class — and totally disregard a whole other swath of voters.”

“What we saw in Milwaukee, in Detroit and Philadelphia, we lost the presidency where we probably could have focused on those working-class voters of color just a little bit more” in 2016.

Those are legitimate points. Former President Barack Obama, a plan man, won election twice, and to much media fanfare. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a white woman, lost the 2016 election, on the other hand, because of her decision to ignore working-class voters.
