Vice President Kamala Harris has never been widely lauded, but her low ratings have reportedly become such a problem for the Democrat Party that a “crisis dinner” was held to strategize on fighting the negative media narrative surrounding her, a concern, Fox News’ “The Five” noted, heading into the midterms.
“Democrats are worried that Kamala Harris’ poor polling could trickle down and cost them the midterms,” Fox News contributor Dagen McDowell stated as the impetus for the meeting.
McDowell said Democrat operatives are blaming Harris’ low approval numbers on “sexism in the media.”
“Look if it’s urgent, you don’t have a crisis dinner because no one is going to tell you, ‘you suck’, to your face,” Fox News host Greg Gutfeld said.

Gutfeld noted that Harris has made it this far because her friends are apt to lay the blame elsewhere and tell her, “it’s not you.” However, blaming Harris has become a successful strategy for the Biden White House and the Democrat Party because it leaves them off the hook.
The high-stakes blame game allows Democrats to distract from their own horrible messaging. Gutfeld observed that the red wave is linked to the crime and authoritarian surge across the nation. “She’s not very good, but you start focusing on her and you’re letting all these other idiots off the hook,” he remarked.
Fox News host Jesse Watters noted that the smartest thing Biden has done in office is dub Harris the “border czar” because it places the spotlight directly on her and away from him.
“All the top women in the Democratic Party went over to a swanky soirée in Georgetown and then they leaked it. They leaked that this was a crisis, that this was urgent, then they characterized themselves as this big group of powerful operatives that are going to save Kamala Harris from the sexist media,” Watters explained.
The “Watter’s World” host characterized the leak as a “warning shot” to the media, which can look forward to being smeared as sexist if they publish negative coverage of the vice president.
Shannon Bream, another host on the network recounted receiving a threatening memo concerning coverage of Harris just weeks before the election.
“We literally got this memo from a number of women’s groups before the election that said ‘if you go after her, it will be considered sexism and racism’. I mean they gave us the literal memo…they are telling us in advance if you criticize her at all, this is going to be what it’s attributed to,” Bream recalled.
The guests to the vice president’s crisis dinner reportedly included her confidant Minyon Moore; former DNC officials, Donna Brazile and Leah Daughtry; Biden adviser and leader of his outside group, Stephanie Cutter; former Hillary Clinton spokeswomen and Democratic strategists Adrienne Elrod and Karen Finney; and former Obama White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri according to Axios.
Notably, no one from the vice president’s office was present at the event. The soirée was characterized as a dinner amongst old friends celebrating a Democrat president who also happened to discuss how to raise Harris’ media and approval profile.
“It was less about how do you sort out the infrastructure [of Harris’ operation], and it was more how can this group contribute to make sure that not only is her team making the most of this moment — as the first woman of color in the White House — but how can we help from the outside?” one Axios source noted.
The vice president may not be the greatest threat to the midterm races, as more and more lawmakers on Capitol Hill create problems for the Democrat Party.
Republicans are expected to use the border, the economy, and crime as issues in the midterms, and thus far, Democrats have given them plenty to work with.
Just this week, radical leftist Rep. Cori Bush (D-M0) defended spending over $200,000 on private security detail and followed that by saying, “And defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets.”
The “rules for thee but not for me” mantra by Democrats will not play well going into the midterms if these crises continue to unfold.
