Nationally syndicated talk radio show host Jesse Kelly said out loud, on live TV what many Americans may have thought was obvious about Vice President Kamala Harris, given her unseemly start to politics.
Appearing on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Kelly was discussing Thursday how Harris doesn’t appear to stand for anything other than advancing her own cause when he noted that the Democrat “started out her political career as Willie Brown’s bratwurst bun.”
In stating that her personal ambition was of cutthroat proportions, Kelly further stated that Harris “will do anything to get ahead.”
The remark had the perpetually aggrieved left in an uproar, after all, how can he say such a thing about not just a woman, but a woman of color? Didn’t Kelly get the memo that it’s verboten to criticize this demographic?
What is true is that as a young prosecutor in San Francisco, Harris did engage in an extramarital affair with former Mayor Willie Brown, a man some 30 years her senior, who was then the Speaker of the California State Assembly. It is also true that Brown appointed her to two state boards, one with a salary of $72,000, and that he gave her political career a boost. In 2003, with Brown serving as mayor, Harris was elected to office for the first time as district attorney of San Francisco.
Carlson opened the segment by mocking Harris for having “principles,” while noting that the vice president doesn’t pronounce her first name the same way every time.
He ran a clip of Harris saying, “We are united by the fundamental belief that every human being is of infinite worth, deserving of compassion, dignity and respect.”
The Fox News host then pivoted to reports that staffers who work for Harris don’t appear to get respect.
“One staffer in her office ‘had a sense of paranoia that you never knew when she was going to snap at you,'” Carlson said, adding that another employee said they were “so stressed out they were making themselves sick.”
He then asked Kelly if he was surprised to learn that Harris may be “the worst boss in Washington and nasty to the people who work for her?”
“It’s the most predicable thing in the world. Everyone watching you right now has worked for, or worked with somebody who just has ambition just dripping off of their pores and that is Kamala Harris,” Kelly said. “Those types of people will do anything to get ahead, they treat their bosses like a crap, they treat their employees like crap.”
“That is why she knifed Joe Biden in the debate with all the race nonsense, there was no reason to do that,” he continued. “It’s the same reason she cackles like a dead hyena anytime she is asked an uncomfortable question. It’s the same reason she started her political year as Willie Brown’s bratwurst bun. Kamala Harris will do anything to get ahead.”
The stinging remark drew a chuckle from Carlson, who added that he can “feel the fear” when he looks at her.
“False people are always afraid because they are terrified you will find out who they really are,” he said. “People who don’t know how to pronounce their own first names or people who grew up in Canada and pretend they didn’t. She always seems like she’s terrified of being exposed.”
Kelly responded to say that’s because Harris “doesn’t believe in anything.”
“Kamala Harris is always painted us this far left winger, if she thought her political ambitions would do better on the right, Kamala Harris would be to the right of Barry Goldwater tomorrow,” he added. “She believes in absolutely nothing except Kamala Harris.”
“She was throwing people in prison all day long in California as this absolute ball-busting cop, throwing people in jail for anything she could possibly think of and now she goes to the Senate, she’s the most left-wing senator,” he later said. “This woman doesn’t believe in anything except for achieving the next thing.”
As for Kelly’s colorful description of Harris, he was scolded by some conservatives, albeit in a ‘wink-wink’ kind of way:
