Joe Biden’s vice-presidential running mate Kamala Harris is already proving that she is not the inspirational powerhouse the Democrats thought she would be. Although she may bring good optics at face value to the Biden campaign, an effective leader does not need to lie and manipulate to get their point across. Because Kamala Harris is using those tactics, she might single-handedly destroy the Biden campaign rather than save it from Biden’s cognitive decline.
On Wednesday night, Kamala Harris gave a historic inaugural speech as the first woman of color to be nominated as a running mate on a presidential ticket. While you might expect a frontrunning Democrat to at least attempt a message of unity since all they can talk about is Trump’s divisiveness, Harris’ speech was instead filled with lies about Trump’s great accomplishments as president.
Here are Kamala Harris’ top seven lies from her VP acceptance speech:
Lie #1: “The president’s mismanagement of the pandemic has plunged us into the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression”
Lie #2: “Just look where they [Trump and Pence] have gotten us… Millions of kids who cannot go back to school.”
Lie #3: “Six years ago, in fact, we had a different health crisis. It was called Ebola. We all remember that pandemic.”
Lie #4: “This virus has impacted almost every country. But there’s a reason it has hit America worse than any other advanced nation. It’s because of Trump’s failure to take it seriously.”
Lie #5: “Trump is also the reason why millions of Americans are unemployed.”
Lie #6: “He inherited the longest economic expansion in history from Barack Obama and Joe Biden. And then, like everything else he inherited, he ran it straight into the ground.”
Lie #7: “Because of Trump’s failures of leadership, our economy has taken one of the biggest hits out of all the major industrialized nations with an unemployment rate that has tripled as of today.”
To quickly debunk these lies, the president’s handling of the pandemic was not to blame for the economic downturn. The virus itself and the state-mandated lockdowns that followed are responsible for the economic crisis.
The Trump administration is pushing hard to send children back to school, but teachers’ unions and Democrats are working hard to obstruct their efforts, constantly shouting about how reopening schools is a death sentence for teachers and students.
Ebola was never a pandemic. It was an epidemic that did not plague America nearly as bad as H1N1 Swine Flu did, and during the Swine Flu outbreak, the Obama/Biden administration failed to act.
America was not the hardest-hit advanced nation by coronavirus. Italy, the UK, and Spain had it far worse in terms of fatalities.
Trump did not inherit a great economy from the last administration. He inherited a stagnant one from Obama, but he turned it into the best economy America has seen in several decades.
Trump’s leadership did not fail the economy. Right before the pandemic, we had several months of record-low unemployment rates. Even following the pandemic, Wall Street is shocked by how quickly the economy is bouncing back from the massive hit it took.
As a woman and person of color myself, I find Harris’ speech to be an absolute disgrace and embarrassment to women and minorities across America. Her rampant lies are a repulsive representation of women’s character, talent, and abilities.
I disagree that Kamala Harris is a “safe” pick for Biden. Her speech showed she is just as much of a liability as he is with her dishonesty, her record as attorney general, and her radical Leftist values.
Honestly, she is a complete mess of a VP pick. As California Attorney General, Harris incarcerated over a thousand people for marijuana charges, while she laughed about smoking it herself in college. Thousands of blacks and Hispanics were disproportionately jailed while she was Attorney General of California. She even hid evidence for cases so they could swing the direction she wanted them to. Harris has accused Biden of being a flat out racist and supposedly believes his #MeToo accusers, but then agrees to be his VP.
So not only does she contradict herself and can’t keep her own record straight, but Harris can’t even decide what race she is. Her whole life in politics she claimed to be an Indian-American, and now that she’s poised to become vice president, she now says she is an African-American woman.
How can anyone keep up with who she is and what she supports?
Kamala Harris is an all-around inconsistent individual who has no loyalties. I think this will play out very poorly for Democrats if Biden does win and is unable to complete his duties as president thereafter. In the unfortunate event that Harris becomes president, she could quickly turn against the Democrats who got her there for her own personal gain.
