    I guess it's fair game since we ridiculed Trump mercilessly for his terrible public speaking -- and that was a daily thing because he was always speaking in public terribly. But this is pretty unremarkable. Not an eloquent speech, but speakers often repeat the critical idea they want to communicate for emphasis. She was talking about internet connectivity in rural areas, how slow internet is leaving those people behind, and how it'll take time to get all those areas connected and what that's going to mean for the people who live there. The idea makes sense. Putting the emphasis on the passage of time makes sense. It was a little artless, but I doubt you'd even notice while watching the full speech. It is interesting to watch, though, how politicos can weave this narrative of how Kamala Harris is a rambling, nonsensical speaker with a thousand little decontextualized clips and eventually the audience gets the idea that she's a rambling, nonsensical speaker (and totally unfit for the presidency) -- not on the validity of any of the datapoints, but just on the illusion of robustness you get from having a thousand of them.

    She's the poster child for failing upward despite gross incompetence (even for a politician).

    Slept and race/gender-hustled her way to the top.

    Was such an awful/unpopular candidate she didn't even make it to Iowa, was only selected as VP to fend of Bernie, and now is one barely-functioning heartbeat away from the presidency.

    ur repeating a convenient lie, misinformation.

    her one-time boyfriend, Willie Brown, was actually a political liability for Harris, in state-wide elections.

    Willie Brown had been a popular politician in Norther Calif, but So Calif voters---including many Black Dems---distrust him;
    that is why he had never attempted to run for state wide elections.

    even w this political liability, Harris, from No Calif, won 3 state-wide elections, winning the the more populated So Calif voters

    Sleeping her way to the top? Really? So dating the mayor when she was in her 20's somehow propelled her to the top as the Attorney General of the state in 2004 and then was elected to the United States Senate? It's more logical to say that Mayor Brown was trying to sleep his way to the top. Sleeping with a city mayor doesn't get you to the AG, United States Senate, and VP of the United States of America unless she had other merits.

    Who knew that sleeping with the mayor was a way to offices far above the mayor decades later? Of course she was already a deputy DA in Alameda County prior to that.

    It sounds like a ridiculous sexist accusation to me.

    She was extremely competent as the California AG.

    She was hardly incompetent even for a politician. She didn't only manage to do that because she dated Willy Brown.

    You further proved my point. While I'm not a fan of hers since leaving the AG office, the criticisms and labels she is slammed with from the right are hugely exaggerated and unfair.

    I don't know if you've noticed, but it's "black women are inferior, defend the master race" week on capitol hill due to the Kentanji hearings.

    The logic is something like - they're inferior, see here's one, the fact that they're here means they're inferior.

    It's real deep stuff

    I'm sure if you keep trying, you might be able to cram more sexism into a smaller post. I have faith.

    Then you might want to switch parties because "respectable" is the last thing I see in Trump. The dude cheated on all his wives, sexually assaulted numerous women, and has lived his life lying, conning and bullying people compulsively. I can't think of a man with so little respect for anyone but himself at all. Kamala and Biden walk on holy water next to Trump.

    I wouldn't go near that pig. That would never happen, even if someone paid me to.

    Yeah kinda… when you are someone who prays to the alter of MAGA and serves as a low level career propagandist for Trump on here as a living… you wear Trump on your sleeve just as if I was a 99er Rockets fan here but was seen sitting courtside at every Spurs game.

    Your credibility on topics of morality especially with sexuality are always going to be hypocritical when you are MAGA.

    So yeah “so you’re saying what about Trump” is pretty relevant when a Trumper here wants to push outrage because a black woman dares to have sex and then later have an important political career. Hypocrisy really is an understatement on top of some not so cryptic racism.
