An essay in the Washington Post about the “inspirational” relationship between Kamala Harris and husband Doug Emhoff has prompted justified ridicule on social media. The obsequious, nearly 1,000-word article, which is almost painful to read or even skim, claims that people who see Harris’s alleged “struggles” in themselves also have hope that they too can “find a long, loving partner” in middle age.
Citing Harris’s memoir that probably only the journalist read or even was aware of, the Post writer praises the couple’s courtship process “that offers hope, inspiration, and a little instruction.” Harris and her husband share a mutual admiration that causes the Democrat vice presidential nominee to “beam” whenever she mentions his name, the article notes.
“For those of us still looking for a relationship that makes us smile that wide, their bond has a way of signaling: Keep looking. Your Doug is out there,” the cloying commentary advises in a preview of the type of softball (or wiffle ball) coverage that readers can anticipate from the Jeff Bezos-owned liberal newsletter if or when Joe Biden and his running mate are sworn in.
Twitter users reacted to the Post piece in the way that you would expect for a publication totally in the tank for the Democrats. Suffice it to say that love isn’t in the air. Here is a sample:

I hope the irony of the tag line “Democracy Dies in Darkness” also being in this snapshot isn’t lost on anyone.

I remember that headline from 2016: “Trump’s Marriage Has So Many of Us Still Searching for Our Melanias.”

Harris, who dropped out of the Democrat presidential primary contest when she only managed three or four percent of the vote according to polls at the time, is not gaining any new fans on social media either after separately claiming that she grew up celebrating Kwanzaa.
