Column: ‘No-Win’ Kamala Still Has Fans in the Press



They are saying when life offers you lemons, you make lemonade. In relation to Vice President Kamala Harris, she will be able to depend on energetic admirers within the press who tackle the duty of constructing lemonade out of her lemons.

Take Washington Put up White Home reporter Cleve Wootson Jr., who accentuated the optimistic in a Sunday story headlined:

Handed a pile of no-win points, Harris builds a community

Beneficial properties credit score with liberals targeted on migration, abortion, and the vote 

One would assume that being handed “unstable social points” like unlawful immigration, abortion and voting rights is likely to be very damaging for Harris. However no! Wootson touted that “behind the scenes, Harris has been quietly seizing the chance to construct a liberal nationwide community of devoted activists that’s satisfied she embraces its causes.”

Wootson discovered delighted leftists who admire the allyship of Kamala. “Advocates invited to the White Home, or to Harris’s ceremonial workplace within the adjoining Eisenhower Government Workplace Constructing, usually specific appreciation that their opinions and standing are being amplified by a political star.”

Is that this reporting? Or merely promoting? Cuddly Cleve has a approach with candy discuss.

The story started with Harris assembly with abortionist Amy Hagstrom Miller, founding father of “Entire Ladies’s Well being” in Austin,Texas. Miller stated she appreciated how Harris would “discuss straight to the acute politicians on this nation,” and he or she meant Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

That’s fascinating. The Home of Representatives simply handed a invoice referred to as the “Ladies’s Well being Safety Act” with 218 of 219 Democrats that’s so excessive on untrammeled abortion that it will require states to permit abortions of an unborn child viable outdoors the womb if one doctor can proclaim that an abortion would shield the lady’s well being. A military of Ralph Northams may make post-birth abortions occur throughout America.

However positive, tag the pro-life Republicans because the “excessive politicians on this nation.”

Liberal extremism is not any vice within the pursuit of the presidency. Wootson added “If Harris has a path to the presidency, it’s prone to run via an energized liberal base — not, because it did for Biden, via blocs of centrist Democrats and reasonable Republicans.” Political scientist Matthew Wilson argued that Harris doesn’t should be broadly widespread to win the presidency, however can triumph because the “champion of a base trigger.”


The Put up story famous Harris was “dogged” by Republicans on the problem of “irregular migration.” She was hounded because the “border czar” who wouldn’t go to the border. However when she (type of) went there in June, to El Paso, it was a triumph together with her base.

Fernando Garcia of the left-wing Border Community for Human Rights, a bunch bearing hashtags like “Hugs, Not Partitions,”  instructed Wootson “I made remarks in regard to not forgetting our historical past. This border, the U.S.-Mexico border, is the brand new Ellis Island. After which she went over and had a press convention on the hangar, she stated the identical factor.”

Wootson concluded the story by telling readers that an viewers with Harris offers activists the proverbial “seat on the desk,” after which they’ll really feel they’re heard and this can make them extra open to “convey a few Harris administration,” each time Biden isn’t going to be president any extra.

“She’s breaking floor, and black girls will maintain combating and maintain supporting her,” stated Melanie Campbell of the Black Ladies’s Roundtable, one other leftist collective.

Kamala Harris is just not precisely holding a pile of press conferences, so nearly nobody can title her press secretary. However maintain an eye fixed out for Cleve Wootson. He’s making case for himself.
