Trump, then a reality TV star

He's still a reality TV star.

Kamala's tough.

She can handle all the falsehoods and lies the misogynistic and ignorant will undoubtedly try to dig up, and be the great Vice President Kamala Harris!!!!

The misinformation hearkens back to the conspiracy theories in 2008 around Democrat Barack Obama, the first Black U.S. president, that claimed he was born in Kenya, not the United States. Those claims were amplified by Donald Trump, then a reality TV star, and gained so much traction during the campaign that Obama produced a birth certificate showing he was born in Honolulu.

I still remember the dignity Obama showed in the face of this sewer-level crap.

I remember Ted Cruz showed dignity in the face of sewer-level crap like Trump tweeting an unflattering photo of his wife

I wonder if Trump will attempt to ridicule Harris’s face like he did with Fiorina. I thought Fiorina showed dignity in the face of this sewer-level crap.

I get the feeling there will be more ‘ugly’ attacks on Harris.

The groups put the media on notice in recent days that they will call out bias

Based on numerous posts read today, I wonder whether the groups will monitor this site where biased posts abound.

Where was this group when Biden’s Sexual Assault accuser was getting smeared and torn to pieces by the media?

She better be ready for every skeleton in her closet to come to life. It's going to be vicious.

He's still a reality TV star.

Yeah, but in a badly-scripted show where he lives in his own false reality. Hopefully, after the results in November, he loses the majority of his audience.

LOL she was about as credible as one of Trump's miracle cures for Covid.

Oh, thats different...

must be a different Kamala, just a few months ago she was discrediting Uncle Joe during the debates...attacking his senility. Our Dem friends are quite the spectacle, exploitation and opportunity take priority to us real people.

Things in closets? As a former prosecutor she must have many. Juxtaposition that with the peaceful riots, which side is she on? who knows, but this should be interesting....)

Harris is likely prepared for the onslaught ahead this year after watching how 2016 unfolded on social media, said Sarah Oates, a political communications professor at the University of Maryland.

"She is going to be vilified, no matter who she is," 

Harris is so vilifiable. She is truly awful.

Tulsi Gabbard was right on Harris' hypocrisy when she was California AG:

"She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations, then laughed about it when she was asked if she had ever smoked marijuana."

I have more but better get this in before comments are disabled on this article too, lolol

Within minutes of the presumptive Democratic nominee’s announcement Tuesday, false information was circulating on social media, claiming that Harris had called Biden a “racist”

This was being pushed earlier on this site I believe by the usual Trump fake news team. It probably came from Trump's campaign; literally the first comment they made about her was a lie.

What Harris said was this, which is the opposite to calling him a racist. It's quite clear to all but those in the right wing sewer.

“I’m going to now direct this at Vice President Biden,” she said when she got the floor. “I do not believe you are a racist"

It's going to be extremely difficult, if not impossible, for the Republicans, to attack or criticize or voice opposition to Harris on her record or positions on the issues without immediately being accused of racism and sexism.

You know the Democrats wouldn't hesitate to play those cards. At the same time, they'll sling all the mud they can dig up and the media will look the other way.

Didn’t take long for the usual culprits to spout the same nonsense on here either.

They dont need to. Just pull up tweets and vids of her teams reaction to the burning and loot across the country, and her position as a former prosecutor. Appears she has played on both sides, just as Bloomberg did.

Trump has been insulting women’s faces and retweeting racist material for years. Did you see what he posted about Fiorina and Ted Cruz’s wife? On the racism point, one notorious incident resulted in a rebuke from the then UK PM for retweeting dodgy videos from a UK-based racist organization.

I can’t see Trump cleaning up his act now.

Recent comments make me wonder where Bidens mind is at when it comes to racism. Is it just generational bias, or does he see others through a racist filter? Well he gets a pass, he has a VP person of color.

 for the Republicans, to attack or criticize or voice opposition to Harris on her record or positions on the issues without immediately being accused of racism and sexism.

Hopefully there will be substantive discussions of her positions on all issues. It's long passed time to make candidate's positions the central focus of the election.

Unfortunately for decades Republicans have used DC swampmen like Roger Stone to dirty elections. And now Republicans have their Rapid Response Team members making things nastier. Plus they have help from foreign propaganda experts. Already the Republicans have their trolls out attacking Harris personally, including attacking her sex life (as if the Republican leader is one to throw stones) and her ethnicity.
