It just keeps getting better: VP Harris’ new comm director donated to Republican’s White House bid

CHECK OUT and for holiday gifts and awesome snarky swag!

Vice President Kamala Harris’s communications director appears to be some kind of conservative, which critics say is quite odd given as her boss was dubbed “the most liberal senator” in America just three years ago.

In recent days, attention has been drawn to social media posts that were posted by recently hired communications director Jamal Simmons within the past five to 10 years.

In one particularly viral tweet from 2010, he complained about two illegal aliens being allowed to speak on MSNBC and wondered “why ICE is not picking them up?”

In another tweet, this one from just two years ago, he defended former Republican President George Bush’s waterboarding, writing that he’d waterboarded suspected terrorists “to protect the nation.”

There’s nothing wrong with these tweets, except that the ideology they clearly espouse lies in direct opposition to the philosophies of the Democrat Party.

In a tweet posted in November of 2019, he mocked then-presidential candidate Joe Biden for making “mistakes after 10pm.” In a tweet posted during the summer of 2019, he slammed then-presidential candidate Harris’s campaign as “listless, unfocused,” and said he wasn’t surprised by her “lackluster fundraising totals.”

Simmons sought to apologize on Friday by suggesting he’d mistakenly misspoken (or mis-tweeted, rather) and been inarticulate with his words, some of which he’s claimed were sarcastic. He’s further maintained that he’s always been pro-illegal alien.

The apology was well-received by a fairly decent amount of the Democrat Party base. There were however some who were left unconvinced. As one skeptical left-winger put it on Twitter, “I don’t accept your apology.”

The latest evidence isn’t likely to help his case. Federal Election Commission filings reviewed by Fox News show that Simmons donated $250 to Sen. Rand Paul’s 2016 presidential campaign. Paul is an anti-illegal alien Republican.

According to Ballotpedia, in 2011 the senator “joined in on a resolution to clarify ‘that under the 14th Amendment a person born in the United States to illegal aliens does not automatically gain citizenship.'”

During his presidential campaign years later, he reportedly wrote on his website, “I do not support amnesty, but rather I support a legal immigration process. I recognize that our country has been enriched by those who seek the American Dream and have a desire for a better life. However, millions of illegal immigrants are crossing our border without our knowledge, and this threatens our national security. As President, I would secure our border immediately. Before issuing any visas or starting the legal immigration process, we must first ensure that our border is secure.”

But it gets worse for Simmons. FEC records also show that he donated $100 — and only $100 — to Harris’s 2016 Senate reelection campaign:

While some members of the Democrat Party base were willing to accept his claims of having misspoken/been sarcastic vis-à-vis his “offensive” social media posts, they’re finding it far more difficult to accept this.

In fact, many are now calling for him to voluntarily resign or be fired.
