Okay, for all the fact-checkers, it isn’t a real cookie, it’s figurative.
Other than inheriting an adoring media from the Obama administration, President Joe Biden and his sidekick, Vice President Kamala Harris haven’t had a lot to celebrate outside of a flurry of executive orders and a $1.9 trillion dollar stimulus that does more to bail out blue states than help the American people with the effects of the pandemic.
The president is bombing Syria, our southern border with Mexico is being overrun by illegal immigrants – many wearing Biden t-shirts – and gas prices keep on climbing.
But then, these were staples in the Obama White House, which may explain a tweet from Valerie Jarrett, who opted to celebrate Harris for – of all things – keeping her shoes on in a professional setting. This being a step up for what she is generally celebrated for: the color of her skin.
Jarrett, who was senior advisor to former President Barack Obama, responded to a nonsensible tweet from Harris about “reflecting on our first 51 days,” which featured a photo of Harris sitting at a table. Her face is only visible in the reflection on the table, while her high-heeled feet are in full view.
“You know @KamalaHarris is a boss when she keeps her high heels on even when they are under the table,” Jarrett tweeted.

But then, the progressive left needs no more reason to celebrate a woman than the mere fact that she’s a woman. A woman of color is like hitting the mega-bonus.
Liberal feminists frequently refer to each another as “queens,” as if they are elevated above all others. At the same time, they insist that they care about the downtrodden. Even more ironic is that progressives claim to be gender nonconforming — yep, it’s a “mixed up, muddled up, shook up world” we live in.
The good news for Harris is that, if all she has to do to please the left is to keep her barking dogs shoed, then the sky is the limit for the former San Francisco prosecutor who got her start in politics with an assist from her 30 years older, married boyfriend, former mayor Willie Brown.
A woman whom Jarrett said in November was “an outstanding role model for all children about what is possible in America with hard work, integrity, resilience, love and support.”
Here’s a quick sampling of responses from Twitter, some of which suggest that we should have a higher bar for a vice president many believe will be replacing her 78-year-old boss inside of a year:
How ironically insulting that this is how low the bar is you’ve set for her. 🙄

Yes, the rest of us just run around barefoot, even when we’re not in the kitchen.

I think we should stop fetishizing women’s ability/willingness to endure the pain of heels as a sign of strength. And maybe let’s focus on substantive actions that show she is a boss. We should show girls that we value substance, not appearances.

Probably the same shoes she wore while hiding exculpatory evidence in death penalty cases.

The low bar of modern America.

So, women should be credited for their brains! Here, #ValerieJarret says heels make the woman!
