Kamala Harris:

    (CBS / AP) — The possible election of U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris as vice president has kicked off widespread speculation in California about who might replace her. At the center of the intrigue is Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, who would choose a replacement if Joe Biden and Harris defeat President Donald Trump’s ticket. Newsom said Wednesday he’s already being approached by potential contenders, jostling for what might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go to the Senate. For Newsom, the list choices is long and the political risks many, especially with a national reckoning on racial injustice underway. Theoretically, Newsom could even select himself. “It’s an earthquake kind of appointment,” said longtime Democratic National Committee member Bob Mulholland. • ALSO READ:...
    Kamala Harris is used to people butchering her name. The presumptive Democratic vice presidential candidate released a video in 2016 with kids showing the proper pronunciation of her first name. It’s not “camel-uh,” or “kuh-mahl-uh” or “karmel-uh,” according to the clip, which aired during Harris’ run for Senate. Simply put — it’s “comma-la,” the California senator wrote in the preface of her 2019 memoir “The Truths We Hold.” “It means ‘lotus flower,’ which is a symbol of significance in Indian culture,” she wrote. “A lotus grows underwater, its flower rising above the surface while its roots are planted firmly in the river bottom.” Harris’ father, Donald Harris, is Jamaican and her late mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris, was Indian. Filed under...
    The mainstream media has rushed to portray Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., as a moderate from the moment presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden selected her as his running mate -- but she campaigned over the past year as an unabashed progressive. The New York Times was roasted for immediately calling Harris a “pragmatic moderate” when alerting Biden’s decision, but that was only the beginning of what critics feel appears to be a coordinated message. CONSERVATIVES REACT TO HARRIS AS BIDEN RUNNING MATE, BLAST NY TIMES FOR ‘PRAGMATIC MODERATE’ DESCRIPTOR Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News he finds the “media’s coordinated gaslighting of Kamala Harris’ record absolutely hilarious” because she was treated much differently during her presidential bid. “I don’t remember Harris ever describing herself as a moderate. Indeed, Harris chose to run...
    Kamala Harris and Joe Biden. Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden could receive a significant boost among Latino voters due to his selection of U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris as his vice presidential running mate: “Our recent poll on behalf of Voter Participation Center and Voto Latino found that 59% of Latino voters in key battleground states said they would be excited about Harris as VP, and 52% say the selection of Harris will make them more likely to vote for Biden,” Anais Lopez of Latino Decisions writes. Harris already has a proven record among Latino voters from her previous runs for office as California attorney general and U.S. senator, Lopez writes. “As attorney general of California, Harris won a majority of support from Latino voters twice in 2010 and 2014....
    Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris formerly praised Christine Blasey Ford as a “true profile in courage.” She also aggressively questioned Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on his abortion stances and later on Ford’s allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.  “I sat through those hearings,” Harris tweeted in September 2019. “Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice.” Sen. Kamala Harris formerly praised Christine Blasey Ford as a “true profile in courage” and aggressively questioned Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in 2018 regarding Ford’s allegations that Kavanaugh...
    The announcement of Kamala Harris as Joe Biden’s running mate has led many commentators to focus on her criminal justice record or her flip-flopping on the allowability of private insurance under her Medicare for All proposal. But it’s worth noting that the Senator from California had the dubious honor of proposing some of the worst budget ideas in the Democratic primary field as well. The most meme-worthy of these proposals was her bizarrely specific student debt relief proposal. Under this proposal, Americans with student loans could have up to $20,000 in student loan debt forgiven — if they met three very specific qualifications. To qualify, student debt loanees must be Pell Grant recipients (already only about 30 percent of undergraduate...
    Reese Witherspoon reacted to Joe Biden's naming of Kamala Harris as his running mate in the 2020 presidential election with a story about her own political endeavors. Long before Witherspoon, 44, became a big name in Hollywood, the "Little Fires Everywhere" actress had big dreams of assuming the Oval Office, she shared in a new Instagram post. "I woke up this morning thinking about a moment from my childhood. In the 3rd grade our teacher asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up, I raised my hand and said, 'I want to be the first female President of the United States of America," she captioned an adorable throwback pic on Instagram.

    The American people are going to have to consider the Democratic Party’s position on defunding the police after Sen. Kamala Harris was added to the ticket as Joe Biden’s running mate, said former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker on Thursday. “It’s very interesting how it appears that Sen. Harris, kind of on the issue of law enforcement, has her finger in the wind,” Whitaker told “Fox & Friends," referring to some conflicting positions from the former Democratic presidential candidate. KAMALA HARRIS’ FLIP-FLOPS BACK UNDER A MICROSCOPE AFTER VP SELECTION Harris, who was officially announced as Biden's running mate Tuesday, has switched her stances on multiple issues throughout her time in public life, beginning as a local prosecutor in the early 2000s. Those positions are...
    Top White House adviser Kellyanne Conway predicted criminal justice reform activists will spend the next several months attacking California Sen. Kamala Harris over her history prosecuting people for marijuana crimes and other nonviolent offenses during her time as California's attorney general. "I think as attorney general in California, the position that Kamala Harris has held much longer than she’s been a United States senator, people will dig into that record," Conway said during an interview with Fox News this week. "It looks like she left nobody happy." Harris was chosen by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden this week to be his running mate. The Biden campaign has promoted the senator as a skilled public official with an...
    HERMAN Cain may have died from the coronavirus in July, but his Twitter account continues to posthumously attack Joe Biden’s Vice President pick Kamala Harris. Cain’s account, which has since switched over to the name “Cain Gang,” is being maintained by the family of the prominent Republican, his daughter Dr. Melanie Cain Gallo wrote in a post published to his website. 3Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain speaks to the media outside of Trump Tower before a scheduled appearance with then-real estate mogul Donald Trump on October 3, 2011Credit: Getty Images - Getty 3: Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain speaks during the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2011Credit: Reuters “Just in case you thought Biden's candidacy was going...
    Vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-California) as well as fellow senators Cory Booker (D-New Jersey) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut) are leading a group of democratic lawmakers in laying the framework for college sports legislation intended to protect student athletes' rights and create opportunities for players to profit. The proposed College Athletes Bill of Rights was revealed Thursday following the Pac-12 and Big Ten's decisions to postpone their fall sports seasons, including football, until springtime due to coronavirus. The senators' proposal would provide students with a larger voice in such decisions while improving health and safety protocols, as well as access to educational opportunities. The proposal includes a revenue-sharing system, similar to professional sports, and offers players the chance to earn...
    Chinese Communist Party (CCP) media breathlessly applauded the selection of Kamala Harris as the Democrat Party’s vice presidential nominee, with a Global Times editorial on Thursday celebrating her for having a Chinese name and supposedly being tough on crime. The Chinese paper also echoed Democrat talking points by suggesting criticism of Harris will be founded in racism and sexism. The Global Times’ thoughts on racial and sexual politics would sound familiar to any consumer of left-leaning U.S. media: Harris has been chosen based on the following considerations. First, the agenda of race is key. Since US President Donald Trump took office, the issue of race in the US has intensified greatly with wild polarization. In this case, the Democratic...
    Meaghan Ellis August 13, 2020 0 Comments California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) revealed pitches are already being submitted for Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-Calif.) Senate seat in the event she is elected Vice President of the United States in November. During a press conference on Wednesday, a reporter asked Newsom if anyone had put their name in the hat in the event Harris vacates her Senate seat in California’s upper chamber. The Democratic governor suggested that he had already received multiple pitches. “You may be the only one that hasn’t, unless you just did, and that is only slight exaggeration,” Newsom told the reporter. However, he made it clear that he would not focus on the possible future of the...
    Olivier Douliery/AFP/Getty Images National Review‘s David Harsanyi falsely accused former Kamala Harris spokesman and current Twitter executive Nick Pacilio of being in charge of censoring President Donald Trump‘s tweets before adding a correction that still defended his article. In the NR column posted on Wednesday morning, Harsanyi sought to connect Pacilio with the removal of Trump Twitter content that violated the company’s policies, such as tweets containing misinformation about the coronavirus. Entitled “Kamala Harris’s Former Press Secretary Is The Face of Twitter Censorship,” the piece alleged that Pacilio — who was a press secretary for then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris from 2011 to 2014 and is now Senior Communications Manager at Twitter — “is now in charge of deciding what the...
    Yesterday, Newsweek published an essay arguing that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) can’t be vice president if her parents weren’t permanent residents of the United States at the time of her birth—in California. Hide And for this the outlet has been overwhelmingly and rightfully criticized for igniting another racist birtherism argument about a Black person seeking one of the highest offices in the land. Hide To make this argument, essay author John Eastman, a law professor and senior fellow at a conservative think tank, cavalierly brushes aside the Constitution and more than a century of jurisprudence. The 14th Amendment states, “all persons born or naturalized in the US, and subject to jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the US and of...
    Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday he “can’t wait” to debate presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris. Watch the latest video at foxnews.com “I think she is a skilled debater, but I can’t wait to get to Salt Lake City and be on the stage. Whether to compare Joe Biden’s nearly 50 years in public life, the agenda of the radical left, the agenda that she’s embraced throughout her political career with the results of this president and this administration,” Pence said on Wednesday’s edition of “Hannity.” At their first joint appearance as running mates in Wilmington, Delaware, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and Harris wasted no time criticizing the Trump administration for a “lack of leadership.” “The...
    Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., being added to the ticket for the Democratic Party's presidential campaign was “an early Christman present,” said Eric Trump on Thursday. “She didn’t do too well in the primaries. You saw that she got under 2% in the total vote,” the Trump Organization executive vice president told “Fox & Friends.” HARRIS EMBRACES RUNNING MATE ATTACK DOG ROLE - SAYS CASE AGAINST TRUMP 'OPEN AND SHUT' Joe Biden's naming of Sen.

    Anything that can be perceived as an attack on Trump—literally anything that can be perceived as a slight against whatever his strange personal narrative of himself is—throws the aspiring fascist into a tizzy. On Tuesday, Trump called in to talk to his bestie, Sean Hannity of Fox News. While the show ran, Trump rambled about this and that and this and that … and this and that. Hannity and the rest of the misinformation propaganda wing of the Republican Party’s job when interviewing any official is to tee up softball questions that allow said official to go right into a (usually) pre-rehearsed set of talking points. This job is considerably tougher when the official being interviewed is Donald Trump. Trump is a...
    Peter Schweizer, author of Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite and president of the Government Accountability Institute, discussed with host Alex Marlow of Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily on Thursday that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), while San Francisco’s district attorney (DA), refused to prosecute cases of priests’ sexual abuse. Harris was the only DA among those from the top 50 metropolitan cities not to lay charges against clergy for sexual abuse, said Schweizer, reflecting on Harris’s tenure as the San Francisco DA between 2004 and 2011. Schweizer stated, “The numbers are pretty stunning. From 2004 to 2011, Kamala Harris was the San Francisco [district attorney] responsible for all prosecutions and the prosecution team in the San Francisco area. Between...
    A former spokeswoman for Sen. Bernie Sanders's most recent campaign for president expressed frustration that presumptive democratic nominee Joe Biden chose Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate. "He’s gone and also selected a running mate who is known for being the top cop from California — the state that has the second-highest number of incarcerated people in America," said Briahna Joy Gray, the former national press secretary for Sanders. Gray said many younger Democratic voters, especially within minority communities, are looking for “non-punitive, non-incarceral solutions to the kinds of economic problems" facing people of color. Harris, the former attorney general of California, has come under scrutiny for a bevy of policies she introduced and implemented in...
    President Donald Trump on Thursday continued questioning Sen. Kamala Harris and her ability to run and win alongside former Vice President Joe Biden. “Now you have sort of a madwoman, I call her because she was so angry, such hatred with Justice Kavanaugh,” Trump said, recalling her attacks against his Supreme Court nominee in the Senate. The president has pursued a similar line of attacks against Harris in recent days, calling her the “meanest, most horrible, most disrespectful” person during the Kavanaugh hearings and “extraordinarily nasty.” Trump spoke about Biden and Harris in a phone interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. He said Biden’s choice of Harris on the ticket proved the angry and radical left had seized control...
    In their enthusiasm for the Biden/Harris ticket, Hollywood celebrities seem to have forgotten all about #MeToo movement and the allegations haunting Joe Biden. But not Rose McGowan. And not rocker Meredith Brooks, who is calling out Kamala Harris for turning a blind eye to Tara Reade’s sexual assault accusation against Biden. “I thought she believed #Tara,” Brooks tweeted. “So now it’s ok since he’s making her his running mate?

    (CNN)In 2008, Republicans and John McCain's campaign accused the media of sexist coverage of former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin in questioning the former Alaska governor's executive experience.Now, Palin is reflecting on the media's treatment of her candidacy and said she hopes that they treat Kamala Harris, who is only the third woman in US history to serve as a vice presidential candidate for a major political party, fairly."Kamala, I think she's in a better position in terms of what to expect than I or Geraldine Ferraro back in the day. Because, again, people have come before her to be able to run. You see the big feminist list of women who've already come out to support her and...
    President Donald Trump went on the attack against powerful women Thursday morning, labeling vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris a 'mad woman,' blasting Speaker Nancy Pelosi as 'stone-cold crazy,' calling MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski a 'ditzy airhead,' and saying Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is 'not even a smart person.' Harris is a new addition to the president's list of insults - becoming a target after presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden named her his running mate - but Pelosi, Brzezinski and Ocasio-Cortez have frequently felt Trump's wrath. President Trump often engages in gender-based attacks on women, particularly his female critics, as a way to attack their intelligence. He also engages in sexist and racist stereotypes such as the 'angry' woman. President Trump...
    Cartoon matriarch Marge Simpson has become the unlikely subject of a political debate online and "Simpsons" fans can't get enough of it. A Twitter controversy ensued on Thursday when President Trump's attorney Jenna Ellis claimed Kamala Harris, D-Calif., has one big thing in common with the iconic TV mom, voiced by Julie Kavner. "Kamala sounds like Marge Simpson," Ellis tweeted of Joe Biden's running mate after the Democratic candidates attended their first campaign event together.

    The Trump campaign’s response to former Vice President Joe Biden’s choice of Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate looked almost consistent for about a minute before dissolving into a hot mess of insults unified mostly by their racism and misogyny.  The Trump campaign would like to have it both ways, attacking Harris both for her record as a prosecutor and as wanting to “appease the anti-police extremists controlling the Democratic Party,” and Trump’s base is certain to tightly embrace that argument. But that specific argument about Harris’ relationship to criminal justice hangs more generally on a picture of her as inherently untrustworthy. “Phony,” the campaign said right out of the gate, only to run into the fact that Donald Trump himself didn't seem to know...
    Newsweek is defending an op-ed that has faced accusations of pushing the birtherism narrative against Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris. Dr. John C. Eastman, a law professor and former dean, wrote an op-ed for the publication on Wednesday in which he questioned whether Harris is constitutionally eligible to appear on the ticket given her status as an American resident. The next day, Newsweek's editor in chief and opinion head wrote a separate editor's note to defend the original column. Eastman's piece noted that Harris's father is from Jamaica and her mother was from India and that neither were naturalized citizens at the time of the senator from California's birth in 1964. He argued that may not be enough for...
    On Wednesday, Newsweek choose to go long on the New Birtherism by publishing an article from law professor John Eastman questioning Kamala Harris’ eligibility as a vice presidential candidate. And when that article generated an entirely justifiable amount of anger, Newsweek decided to double down with an “editor’s note” claiming that this article had “no connection whatsoever to so-called ‘birther-ism,’ the racist 2008 conspiracy theory aimed at delegitimizing then-candidate Barack Obama.” Instead, says the editors of Newsweek who provided this platform to Eastman, it’s just an “arcane legal debate” that they happen to be fronting. The problem with this is … of course it’s racism. Eastman isn’t some random law professor arguing the definition of a particular clause in the 14th amendment, he’s a Federalist Society chairman and former clerk to...
    Drew Angerer/Getty Images Newsweek editors responded to outrage over a column challenging Senator Kamala Harris’ eligibility to be Joe Biden’s vice president by claiming that the piece “has nothing to do with racist birtherism” because it didn’t question that Harris was born in Oakland, but merely that a child of immigrants could be constitutionally suspect. The site published an  op-ed by law professor John Eastman — formerly a Republican primary candidate for the California attorney general post that Harris wound up winning — entitled “Some Questions for Kamala Harris About Eligibility,” which examines the definition of “natural-born citizen” in the U.S. Constitution, as well as the 14th Amendment. After fierce backlash accusing the author of racism and birtherism, Newsweek editors...
    With Sen.

     Late-night hosts Trevor Noah and Stephen Colbert went after President Donald Trump, Republicans, and Fox News anchors for fumbling their response to Sen. Kamala Harris, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s vice president pick. Noah began his Wednesday night episode by mocking Trump and those at Fox News for struggling to put Harris in a box so that they can accurately attack her. The host went after Trump for questioning Biden’s pick at his press briefing on Wednesday by noting how “nasty” she was to “Sleepy Joe” on the debate trail. “Yeah, she was so horrible to Sleepy Joe,” Noah said, mimicking Trump. “And that loser deserves so much more respect than that.” The host pointed out that Trump should be familiar with the idea of being cordial with a...
    Joe Biden’s campaign raised a whopping $26 million in the 24 hours after announcing Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate, the presumptive Democratic nominee said. Speaking to donors Wednesday evening at a virtual fundraiser, Biden said that 150,000 donations came from first-time contributors to the campaign. The former vice president, who announced the California Democrat as his running mate on Tuesday, said that the fundraising figures showed the energy that was behind Harris (D-Calif.). “It’s really palpable, the excitement,” he said. Wednesday night’s fundraiser alone brought in $9.6 million from just over 200,000 donors. During their first joint press briefing Wednesday, Biden made similar remarks about the reaction to Harris joining the ticket. “I have no doubt that...
    In their first joint campaign appearance, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris accused Donald Trump of leaving the U.S. “in tatters,” The Guardian reported. “This is what happens when we elect a guy who just isn’t up for the job,” Harris said, according to the publication. “Our country ends in tatters and so does our reputation around the world.” The senator, who was announced as Biden’s running mate on Tuesday August 11, took aim at Trump’s handling of the coronavirus crisis in her speech, which took place in a school in Wilmington, Delaware. She acknowledged that Covid-19 had impacted almost every country in the world, but claimed that Trump’s “failure to take it seriously from the start” is the reason the...
    Democrat vice presidential pick Sen. Kamala Harris still owes at least $1.1 million to vendors from her failed bid for the White House, show Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings. Bloomberg News reports: Harris raised about $39 million for her presidential bid in 2019, including transfers from her Senate campaign account, while spending about $40 million, the FEC filings show. She suspended her campaign in December, amid declining poll numbers and fundraising, with some of her vendors ending up with unpaid bills.

    Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-CA) failed presidential campaign received contributions from a law firm used by deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, according to July 2019 report. The Associated Press reported: Kamala Harris bemoaned the influence of the powerful and connected elite last Tuesday when she called on top Justice Department officials to recuse themselves from any matter related to Jeffrey Epstein. She said their former law firm’s work on behalf of the financier accused of sexual abuse “calls into question the integrity of our legal system.” Yet the same day, Harris’ husband headlined a Chicago fundraiser for her presidential campaign that was hosted by six partners of that firm — Kirkland and Ellis, according to an invitation obtained by The Associated Press....
    President Trump called presumptive vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris a radical “mad woman” Thursday, said the tax and spend policies of the Democratic ticket would wreak havoc on the economy, and predicted the party’s environmental agenda would result in the demolition of the Empire State Building. “She’s radical left. Now she tries to pretend she’s not, but she’s the most liberal person in the US Senate. She’s done things that are terrible in terms of the police in terms of the Second Amendment, in terms of everything else and she is a big taxer as Joe is a big taxer,” Trump said on “Fox News Business,” referring to presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The California senator is “sort of a...
    (CNN)Kamala Harris walked into a packed auditorium for her freshman orientation at Howard University and experienced a revelation.As she studied her classmates at the historically Black school in Washington, D.C., she saw a mini-rainbow coalition of faces from around the US, Africa, the Caribbean and other places -- many impossible to fit into a neat box because their racial and socioeconomic backgrounds were so varied."I stood in the back, looked around and thought, 'This is heaven!'

    In her first appearance alongside presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Sen. Kamala Harris of California hit every note a vice presidential pick must hit.  "I am ready to get to work," Harris said at the outset of her speech, after thanking Biden for the honor of being his running mate. "I am ready to get to work," she repeated again, with a determination that left no doubt, she means business. Then Harris got to work making the case against her Republican rivals. "Let me tell you, as somebody who has presented my fair share of arguments in court, the case against Donald Trump and Mike Pence is open and shut," Harris charged, buoyed by the weight of her decades-long career...
    Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Vice President Mike Pence reacted to the selection of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s running mate. Pence said the selection was indicative of the direction of the Democratic Party, which he said was a shift to the radical left. “The stakes in this election have never been higher,” he explained. “But following Joe Biden’s decision to name a California liberal like Kamala Harris to the ticket, the choice has never been clearer. Look, four years ago, when President Trump called and asked me to join this ticket, I said yes in a heartbeat because I believed in his vision, to rebuild our military, to revive our economy by cutting...
    Wednesday on CNN, anchor Don Lemon criticized Fox News Host Tucker Carlson for mispronouncing the name of Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris. Lemon said, “The president, his campaign, allies at Fox News are all grasping at straws on the offensive against Kamala Harris.” He added, “and then there’s state media. Where they have taken everything but the kitchen sink approach against the vice president nominee including but not limited to sexist smears and more than one person not even bothering to get Kamala Harris’s name right.” In a clip after Carlson mispronounced Kamala’s name, his guest, an adviser to previous Democratic presidential campaigns, Richard Goodstein stopped Carlson and corrected his pronunciation by saying, “Out of respect for somebody who will be...
    President Donald Trump gave a wild interview to Fox Business on Thursday where he struck out at Joe Biden and his newly-confirmed 2020 running mate, Senator Kamala Harris. As Trump railed against the Green New Deal, he turned his focus toward his Democratic opponents and said “Sleepy Joe buys into it. He buys it into like — oh, great. He doesn’t know what he’s doing.” After that, Trump went after Harris for her confrontational approach with Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings. “Now you have sort of a mad woman, I call her, because she was so angry and such hatred with Justice Kavanaugh. I’ve never seen anything like it,” Trump said. “She was the angriest...
    Drew Angerer/Getty Images Newsweek magazine faced a blizzard of criticism over a column that questioned Senator Kamala Harris’ eligibility for the vice presidency, in what many saw as an echo of the racist “birther” campaign against former President Barack Obama. At issue is an op-ed by law professor John Eastman entitled “Some Questions for Kamala Harris About Eligibility,” which examines the definition of “natural-born citizen” in the U.S. Constitution, as well as the 14th Amendment. As the site pointed out in a later editor’s note, Eastman doesn’t question the veracity of Harris’ birth in the U.S., but the entire piece is devoted to arcane arguments questioning her legitimacy to hold the post for which she is running and concludes that...
    Joe Biden and Kamala Harris made their first appearances as a campaign ticket on Wednesday, and Americans still know little about the running mate who may be President sooner rather than later. One way to fill in the gap is to inspect Ms. Harris’s record as California’s Attorney General, and one revealing episode is the way she used her power to blow up a deal to rescue struggling Catholic hospitals. The saga started in 2014 when for-profit Prime Healthcare Services made an $843 million bid for six insolvent hospitals operated by the Catholic Daughters of Charity Health System.

    WILMINGTON, Del. -- Joe Biden raised $26 million in the 24 hours after he named Kamala Harris as his running mate, doubling his previous one-day record and signaling enthusiasm among Democrats following the selection of the first Black woman on a major party's presidential ticket."It's really palpable, the excitement," Biden said Wednesday.The campaign hopes the haul is the beginning of a prolific fundraising push in the final stretch before Election Day. Democrats are close to matching, if not surpassing, the massive $300 million cash stockpile President Donald Trump and Republicans reported in July.Harris is expected to play a key role in that effort. She joined Biden in Delaware on Wednesday for their first fundraiser together as running mates and talked...
    Getty Kamala Harris has been selected to be Joe Biden’s running mate — and now, it’s likely that many of her proposal and stances are going to get more attention. One such stance is the one she has regarding the pandemic, and how the U.S. government should support the American people during this time. Harris believes the government should provide monthly stimulus payments to individuals and families until the pandemic is over. The Monthly Economic Crisis Support Act stimulus plan makes it through Congress. The bill was introduced in May by Senators Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Ed Markey. According to the act’s one-pager, the proposal would send $2,000 per month to individuals and $4,000 to married couples...
    CNN host Don Lemon blasted Fox News host Tucker Carlson for mispronouncing presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris's name. During Wednesday's airing of CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, the network host took aim at Fox News hosts Sean Hannity, Jesse Watters, and others for "sexist smears" toward Harris, including Carlson's mispronunciation of her name on Tuesday night. "And then there’s state media," Lemon said. "Where they have taken an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach against the presumptive VP nominee, including, but not limited to, sexist smears and more than one person not even bothering to get Kamala Harris’s name right." Lemon, whose name is often also mispronounced on Carlson's show when referencing him, then played clips of hosts and...

    Chauncey DeVega August 13, 2020 12:00PM (UTC) Joe Biden has chosen Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate. She is the first Black woman to fill that role on a major-party platform, and only the second Black person to be part of a presidential ticket. If Biden is elected president, Harris will become both the first female vice president and first Black vice president. Given Biden's age and stated intentions, it is conceivable that he will only serve one term and Harris will be his presumptive successor. One way or another, she appears positioned to become (perhaps) the country's first woman president and second Black president. Conventional political wisdom holds that a vice-presidential candidate adds little value to the overall ticket, but can potentially cause great...
    This week, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was named Joe Biden’s running mate for the 2020 election. While it will be Biden’s platform, Harris, having run her own primary, has stances on a number of matters, ones whre she could potentially push her new partner on. Hide Of all the more pressing topics a Biden-Harris administration will face, technology looms large. So what could the California senator do on the myriad of tech issues the nation is currently grappling with?

That connection makes...
    (CNN)Former Vice President Joe Biden's selection of Sen. Kamala Harris as his vice presidential nominee is historic. If the ticket is elected in the fall, the California Democrat will be the first woman, Black woman and Indian American to become vice president. The impact of Harris on the election result, however, is likely to be far more minimal. Vice presidents rarely move the dial significantly, so Harris' selection matters a lot more for 2021 and beyond than it does for 2020. Many voters are likely to have no strong opinions of Harris, even at the end of the campaign. You can see this best in a study of past CBS News/New York Times polls as well as those from NBC...
    Joe Biden's presidential campaign captured the moment the presumptive nominee tele-called Kamala from his home office in Wilmington Tuesday: "You ready to go to work?" And, "First of all, is the answer yes?" "The answer is absolutely yes, Joe, and I am ready to work. I am ready to do this with you, for you," Harris replied. "I'm just — I'm deeply honored and I'm very excited." The call bookends a brief bio video, narrated by Harris and released by the campaign after the announcement of her selection as the first Black woman running mate for a major party, and the first Asian-American. Though that moment was made public, the Biden campaign succeeded in keeping her selection a secret until it chose to...
    President Trump tried out new angles of attack against Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris on Wednesday, calling her "very weak on facts" and saying her campaign "dropped like a rock."  Harris and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden made their first joint appearance Wednesday after Biden announced her as his running mate on Tuesday. Harris devoted a significant portion of her speech to criticizing the president's response to the coronavirus, pointing out Mr. Trump's inconsistent statements on measures like social distancing and masks, key elements of keeping the virus under control. Confronted with her remarks, the president, whose propensity for making misleading or false claims has often been noted, said Harris probably had to drop out because she's "very weak...
    Charmed actress Rose McGowan criticized Kamala Harris yesterday for accepting donations from Harvey Weinstein in one of her past campaigns.  Biden named Harris as his running mate on Tuesday afternoon, making history by selecting the first black woman to compete on a major party's presidential ticket and acknowledging the vital role black voters will play in his bid to defeat President Donald Trump. Despite an outpouring of support from Hollywood on the selection, including from figures like Taylor Swift, McGowan, 46, expressed her concern on Twitter that Harris had previously accepted donations from convicted sexual predator Weinstein.  'Did you return the money Weinstein gave you? @SenKamalaHarris How many predators bankroll you?,' she asked in a retweet comment from Jeffrey St....
    A former national security adviser claims President Donald Trump has given his 'blessing' for Russia to interfere with the 2020 election. Susan Rice, who had been a potential running mate for Democrat nominee Joe Biden before he picked Kamala Harris Tuesday, said Trump has refused to call out Russian meddling in the election. Ms Rice is considered one of the country’s leading experts on foreign policy and served as ambassador of the United Nations from 2009 to 2013 under President Obama.

    The Republican president now calls the senator “the meanest” and “the most horrible” after she was named running mate of Democrat Joe Biden in the presidential election on November 3. In 2011 and 2013, when Donald Trump was not yet president, he donated $ 5,000 and $ 1,000 to support Kamala Harris’s re-election as California prosecutor. According to a spokesperson for Ms Harris, she in turn gave the money to an organization dedicated to Central America in 2015. Mr. Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, reportedly gave Harris $ 2,000 in 2014, according to campaign finance records in California.
    Senator Kamala Harris, a former presidential candidate, brings a history of votes and positions as she campaigns to become the first woman of color vice president.  Harris, a former prosecutor, has established a voting record as one of the most liberal members of the U.S. Senate, according to GovTrack, an independent nonpartisan website that tracks legislative records. Her record, already scrutinized when she ran for president, is sure to be under the microscope once again as she adds her name to the Democratic ticket.  Health careHarris was a co-sponsor of Senator Bernie Sanders' Medicare for All act.

    Vice President Mike Pence told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he was eager to debate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who was selected this week to be Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s running mate, because he looks forward to exposing the “radical left” agenda that she supports. “Joe Biden’s decision to add Kamala Harris to the ticket confirms everything President Trump and I have been saying,” Pence said. “And that is that Joe Biden and the Democratic Party have been overtaken by the radical left.” “Kamala Harris, like Joe Biden, supports higher taxes, socialized medicine, open borders, abortion on demand. And where Joe Biden said he would be willing to cut funding to police, she said recently that she thought...
    Joe Biden's selection of Kamala Harris as his running mate exacerbates a tension in President Trump's reelection strategy: whether to lean into criminal justice reform or to emphasize law and order at a time of rising crime in many cities. That's because the California senator is seen as having two main vulnerabilities: With Republicans and centrists, it's her blue-state liberalism; and for the Left, it's her prosecutorial record as a district attorney and state attorney general. Just as Biden's role in enacting the 1994 crime bill became a liability to the former vice president and senator this year, Harris's background was used against her in the Democratic primaries. "Sen. Harris said she's proud of her record as a prosecutor and...
    Republican strategists say they have become more optimistic about President Trump’s prospects after Joe Biden anointed Sen. Kamala Harris his running mate, claiming the liberal Californian would derail the presumptive Democratic nominee’s momentum in key Midwestern battlegrounds. Biden has Trump on his heels from Iowa to Pennsylvania and is poised to rebuild the "blue wall" toppled by the Republican incumbent four years ago. The former vice president is an old-school labor Democrat whose blue-collar roots helped him forge a connection with working-class voters during his tenure as Barack Obama’s No. 2. But GOP operatives in the Rust Belt on Wednesday told the Washington Examiner Harris would blunt Biden’s appeal with voters in exurban and rural communities across the Midwest,...

    But the memory of the strong attacks of the senator from California against her rival during the Democratic primary will hardly be able to disappear, agitated at will by Donald Trump. “Kamala, you have been an honorary member of the Biden family for quite a while,” said Joe Biden, 77, turning to the first black running mate chosen by the major party candidate in the United States on Wednesday. , and the first person of Indian origin.

    No one was shocked by Joe Biden’s pick of California Senator Kamala Harris. For months people had guessed and assumed she would be Biden’s veep. Even the other names on the list didn’t seem to make much sense. Many of the women on that list lacked the kind of visibility and excitement that Kamala innately possessed, not to mention Kamala’s digital army and heaps of charisma. But Kamala had been impressive, commanding, and serious in the debates. Some sexist pundits worried that she had been too commanding and impressive.  So that was all expected. What happened next, though, was something that none of us could have possibly seen coming. Even I, who am completely dead inside, was all of a...

This is a serious matter!” chimed in an older Black woman who is a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority. “She went from the Hilltop to Capitol Hill,” a Howard University alum cheered on Twitter.  They were talking of course about California Senator and now Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris. A Black woman of Indian descent, Harris is the first woman of color on a major party’s national ticket. But for some Black millennial voters, such as myself, it’s an underwhelming historical moment to witness another moderate minority who’s relied on centrist identity politics climb the ladder.  We’ve seen with Barack...
