Comedian Bill Maher clearly isn’t afraid of being “cancelled,” given the extent to which he laced into Vice President Kamala Harris’s most recent non-performance as an effective politician.
And he certainly did not hold back when he openly recommended for Biden to drop Harris from the 2024 ticket, assuming Biden’s handlers think it’s a great idea for the gaffe-prone 80+ year old Democrat to run once again for the White House.
“It’s very hard to take the nomination away from the president,” Maher noted, “what I could see is replacing the vice president because she’s not very popular anywhere. And it didn’t seem to work out. And I don’t know. That’s been done before in a ticket.”
“Not very popular” anywhere is a nice way of putting it, if not totally accurate.
After all, Kamala’s myriad gaffes are undoubtedly very popular with China, Russia, and, more recently, North Korea, if only because they underpin the total and complete ineptness of the Biden administration.
“I just think she’s a bad politician,” Maher continued, “and I don’t … I think she’s a very bright person. But I can see them doing that because a lot of the problem with Biden being old is, ‘Oh, if he dies then you know you’re gonna get this person.’”
Well, considering that Kamala basically campaigned on colluding with criminals who are openly aggressive towards police, it is safe to say that she isn’t “very bright.”
Even less so when considering the extent to which she’s flip-flopped (repeatedly) on multiple issues, which is not the cleverest approach during the social media age.
As vice president, Kamala has continued along her prewritten, incendiary path, most recently taking the rather tasteless position of politicizing the devastating Hurricane Ian.
“It is our lowest income communities and our communities of color that are most impacted by these extreme conditions and impacted by issues that are not of their own making,” Harris blared.
That’s Democrats for you. A natural disaster can’t even happen without it being “racist” in some way. What isn’tracist for these “representatives?”
“And so we have to address this in a way that is about giving resources based on equity, understanding that we fight for equality, but we also need to fight for equity, understanding not everyone starts out at the same place,” Harris blared.
Thank you, Ms. Harris, for that rather uneducated introduction to Human History 1.0.
It’s been made rather clear throughout time that “not everyone starts out at the same place,” and the irony is that the United States has been amongst the most, if not the most, welcoming towards immigrants in terms of freedom and opportunity.
Not that Democrats want their followers to know that.
That said, individuals who have actual work to do, such as FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell, find themselves in the unenviable position of cleaning up the vice president’s remarks when they happen to overlap with their own responsibilities.
Case in point: “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan recently asked Criswell directly about Harris’s rather incendiary remarks, leading to a very careful response from Criswell.
“[O]ur programs support everybody,” Criswell replied carefully, “I would say I believe some of the things the vice president was talking about are the long-term recovery and rebuilding these communities to be able to withstand disasters, so they can have less impact.”
In other words, Criswell could explain the realities of more vulnerable homes without making everything about race and division.
“We’re going to support all communities. I committed that to [Governor DeSantis], I commit to you right here that all Floridians are going to be able to get the help that is available to them through our programs,” Criswell affirmed.
Thank you, Criswell, for having the sense to communicate clearly with DeSantis and focus on helping people over political theatrics for television.
Of course, it should go without saying that the FEMA head should communicate effectively, but since the current president and vice president appear to be competing in terms of incompetence, any display competence from any federal official is significantly welcomed.
Especially since federal officials aren’t completely obsessed with conquering and dividing Americans.
“OK, so here’s the problem with the Democratic party. They’re so boxed in by identity politics that you cannot conceive of a Democratic ticket that doesn’t have a woman and person of color on it,” Maher blared.
Seriously. And “identity politics” are hardly a depiction of the so-called “unity” promised by Biden.
“And pretty soon you’re gonna line up behind that gay Latino and you’re gonna have to have, you know, a deaf Eskimo,” Maher continued on, undoubtedly inflaming liberals with his commentary.
Then again, the truth typically is the most inflammatory to those types.
