'People haven’t had a chance to get
to know her': MSNBC's Joy Reid asserts
that Kamala Harris is not being treated
fairly by the 'white, male' media

Original Article

MSNBC host and commentator Joy Reid spoke out over the weekend about what she feels is unfair media coverage of Vice President Kamala Harris. Reid blamed the 'white, male media' for treating Harris with a bias that would not be found during the tenure of her predecessors, in an interview with The Root. 'Think about her portfolio, voting rights, immigration and the border, and police reform. The things on her plate are the toughest things that the Biden Administration has to deal with outside of inflation and the war in Ukraine,' said Reid.

Why would I want to get to know someone who talks to me like I'm 5yrs old? Or who laughs about serious issues?

We treat her exactly like a lazy, promiscuous, not-very-bright, America-hating ho should be treated. We don't like Reid much either.

As fair, for example, as former vice presidents Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Dan Quayle?

Joyless is wrong...again. We have seen Kamala embarrass us time after time with her feckless incompetence. Nothing that heels up says or does surprises anyone. She is a walking, talking punchline. No one will ever convince me that 81 million voters chose this bimbo for VP.

Border - build the wall. Immigration - screen anyone who wants to come here legally. Voting - must show ID to vote. Police - let them do their job. It's not that tough. Even Kammie can do it, but she doesn't.

No Joy, you're wrong. I don't hate Camel, I pity her. Simply because she is a glaring example of what relying on her gender and skin color and not accomplishments has done to set her up to look like the fool she truly is. Since she obviously has cognitive disabilities, how she's been exploited, is a clear violation of the ADA.

When LBJ began his War On Poverty, certain individuals came forward to soak up the money. They were called, by their black peers, poverty pimps. Kamala is part poverty pimp. There is a term in psychology called character armor. It can be defined as behavior that protects us against our feelings. Kamala Sutra's laugh is part of character armor. (Character armor is not necessarily related to intelligence. I have worked for physicians, while a USAF medic, who were brilliant, but had such quirks as Kamala does. And patients were sometimes offended by the physician.) Most important, Kamala spent her legal career as a prosecutor. That means she had to be trough, abrasive, and willing to to after defendants in ways some of us would find to be unacceptable. It is hard to hang up one's work clothes at the end of the day, or end of one's career. Finally, sociologists talk about 'the marginal man.' The term is applied to first generation immigrants who struggle to fit in two cultures, simultaneously. Kamala is a first generation immigrant who has been subjected to Indian culture, American culture, Canadian culture, Jamaican culture. and California culture. (I consider California to be a culture distinct and separate from American culture.) She has to be conflicted.

@14 In my wildest dreams I can't picture Kamala as someone being tough enough to be a FAIR prosecutor. I think she can throw her female weight around and talk tough but in the end it means diddly squat. You will remember she was the first candidate to drop out of the running. I cannot stand to listen to her or watch her in a video.

My opinion of her is based on my knowledge of how she rose to prominence in California, the double standards she practiced as a prosecutor, and by listening to her speak to, or more accurately "at" the public. Also, by the unimpressive way she handles tasks that have been delegated to her. And the fact her own staff doesn't seem to to like working for her. Gutfeld or Hannity played no role in my perception of her. She was promoted beyond her level of competency a long time ago.

The Black Conservative commentator I watch on Rumble played a montage of our bike riding fearless leader Creepy, Sleepy, Ridey, Sloppy Joe aka Lance Armstrong and our very intelligent and articulate vice president Cackling Kamala. It went back to when she ran for president until now. Let's just say she's a hot mess. Speaking of hot messes Joy Reid aka the love child of Carrot Top and Whoopi Goldberg as usual has it wrong. I for on do not have to get to know the number #2 member of our Executive Branch of Government. All I have to know is if he or she is competent, intelligent, ethical, and trustworthy. Sorry Joyless but Harris isn't any of those whatsoever. She makes guys like Spiro Agnew, Walter Mondale and Dan Quayle look like political geniuses. She also gets treated in the so called White male media far better than Dan Quayle ever was so her premise is of course wrong.

Well there is unfair treatment of Kamala Harris. And I am looking into the unfair treatment of Kamala Harris. So we should all understand that there is unfair treatment of Kamala Harris. And perhaps the unfair treatment of Kamala Harris can be explained by the treatment of Kamala Harris which is unfair. Or perhaps it's because she never actually answers a question. She just repeats the premise in several different ways until she finally stops talking and takes the next question.

#30. Re your mention of Dan Quayle as VP. I had a chance to meet Quayle at a private event a few years after he left office. Contrary to his portrayal in media reports, I thought he was dignified and had an impressive presence. As did his wife Marilyn. I think I have some basis for judgment since I have been around many politicians, military commanders and a few top attorneys.

#35 Dan Quayle's treatment by the press was only a little worse than the usual way they treated any conservative republican. They grab on to some little thing and just beat it to pieces. I don't know how the press can look in the mirror in the mornings.

Just The News reports that 51-year-old Timothy Hysom, the chief of staff for Congressman Jack Auchincloss (D-Mass.), was arrested by Capitol Police after he was caught on surveillance camera footage defacing posters outside the office of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) in the Longworth House Office Building.

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin ignored recent examples of progressive violence when he went on "At This Hour With Kate Bolduan" on Wednesday to condemn "the pervasiveness of right-wing violence." Toobin appeared on a panel discussing the ongoing Jan. 6 hearings and potential connections to former President Donald Trump. In the latest hearing by the Jan. 6 Committee on Tuesday, state officials testified that they received several threats and attacks from people after refusing to overturn the 2020 election results. Toobin argued those threats were further proof that "right-wing violence" is now pervasive throughout the country.

Figures on liberal media networks CNN, NBC and MSNBC have pushed the narrative that Republicans do not deserve equal coverage alongside their Democratic counterparts, often claiming Republicans stand for anti-Democratic values and are more likely to push falsehoods. On MSNBC's "The ReidOut" Monday night, Joy Reid and her guest, left-wing political analyst Mathew Dowd, suggested the media were too neutral in their reporting on the Republican Party, and thus needed to ramp up the hostility. She added that both sides were "not the same," and also urged fellow reporters to "tell voters" the GOP was a "threat" to freedom.

John Wood, a senior investigative counsel on the committee, confirmed his departure to CNN, but he declined to elaborate on why he was moving on from the role as rumors swirl that he has been encouraged to run for the open Senate seat in Missouri. Wood's exit comes as the committee is in the thick of public hearings about the Capitol riot and the coinciding efforts to challenge the 2020 election results.

Barack and Michelle Obama's multiyear deal with Amazon's podcast platform Audible is worth at least $20million, experts have claimed. The couple will have to contribute two shows and appear in up to eight episodes each, the industry insiders said. The move will give the former first lady the scope to make less personal appearances than what was wanted under their former partnership with Spotify, the sources said. Audible said the pair plan to use their new platform to 'tell stories that elevate diverse voices and and experiences'. The Obamas cut ties with Spotify after reportedly clashing with the streaming giant over exclusivity and how much they were expected to appear in episodes.

The text's release was delayed this week by some last-minute negotiations over a ban on any healthcare-related funds in the bill being used to pay for abortions, but that hurdle was cleared by Tuesday afternoon when the final text was released. Totaling 80 pages, the bill text can be viewed below:
