DNC Lowers Price For Photo Op With Kamala Harris After Failing To Sell Enough Tickets

Tara Palmeri from The Washington Mall posted a very funny sounding story that shows how the DNC reduced the photo-op price with Vice President Kamala Hariri from $15,000 down to $5,000, after it failed to sell enough tickets.

Apparently, SomeThis economy is seeing a decrease in prices.

One could argue that regular fundraising isn’t like this. Daniel Wessel (DNC Deputy Communication Director) says that this is true:

“The DNC works with our hosts and fundraisers to set specific ticket prices for each event. As has always been the case, there are a variety of ticket levels for every event as is pretty standard for finance events.”

Surprisingly, not everyone is buying what the DNC is selling… both literally, and figuratively it would seem.

It could be her low polling scores. She is unable to staff her office. The often lamented ‘impossible’ assignments she’s been given, or is it that the poor VP is getting bullied by racist, sexist white men? First, let’s take a look at the numbers.

Dick Cheney Seems Amazing Despite Low Polling Results

A USA Today – Suffolk University poll clocked the VP’s approval rating at a rock bottom 28%. That’s lower than former VP alum Dick Cheney. 

And it’s lower than Biden’s, who at this point in his presidency is the most unpopular president since polling began in 1945. 

But to give the embattled VP some credit, it’s not just her numbers that have taken a nose dive. A NBC News poll found that Americans rated the Democratic Party less highly than Trump’s former president.

It’s relatively typical for Vice Presidents to have approval ratings in the same neighborhood as their President. One could argue that Joe might be dragging her down. 

Recently there has been chatter that perhaps President Biden shouldn’t run for a second term because apparently, and I guess the Democrats just realized this, he’s old. So if he weren’t to run in 2024, the assumption would be that, of course, his Vice President would be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024. 

Jim Clyburn, Democratic Kingmaker and possible Queen Maker Congressman stated his positive opinion on the matter.

“Right now, I’m for Biden, and second I’m for Harris – that’s one and two on the ticket, but that’s one and two in my heart as well.”

He continues to add:

“…I’m for Biden and then I’m for Harris – either together or in that order.”

Staffers Better Keep Their LinkedIn Profiles Up To Date…

If Harris does run for President again and makes it back into the White House, I hope she can keep a fully manned staff to help her, you know… do her job. Since Harris’ ascension into the VP post, staffers have been leaping from the sinking U.S.S Kamala.

According to my calculations, the following are our escapees

  • Ashley Etienne is Communications Director.
  • Symone Bernie, press secretary in December
  • Speechwriter Kate Childs Graham in February
  • Sabrina Singh, Deputy Press Secretary in March
  • Tina Flournoy was Chief of Staff, April 

It’s hard to imagine anyone leaving such a high-ranking job like working as the Vice President. Sometimes, it’s the boss.

The Washington Post was told by an anonymous ex-staffer:

“With Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence.”

This sounds very familiar to some old commanders. I feel ya’ pal.

But The Job Is Just So… Hard

One argument that left-wing Harris sympathizers love to make is that the Vice Presidential was set up by President. The Vice President’s role in the United States is rather ambiguous.

His only job is to be President of Senate. And not to embarrass President. It should be simple, as Joe is able to handle this task well enough. 

Another job for the VP, is to follow orders of President Trump. Her job was not easy. One of her most difficult tasks is to address the illegal immigration crisis. 

She has recently been assigned to head the newly launched ‘Task Force to address online harassment and abuse.‘ Otherwise known as a repackaged Disinformation Board.

What is the goal of this taskforce? To “develop programs and policies” to protect “political figures” and journalists from “disinformation.” 

Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Shouldn’t the American people be protected against disinformation from political figures and journalists? 

For the Vice President, this will mean she has help. The Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas is also part of the task force. Maybe they could multitask, and take care of her other task and protect the border.

If It Wasn’t For White Men, Harris Would Be Doing Great

Joy Reid, well known for her in-depth political analysis, claims the veep would have better approval numbers if it wasn’t for racist white guys. 

“Most of the media is still white and male. And their take on Kamala Harris becomes the take.”

The ever-popular, intellectually lame argument that mass racism or sexism is to blame. An argument that gets a lot of play from the Democratic Party’s bag of tricks. 

Reid adds:

“She’s just a regular sister in the same way people would always say that Michelle Obama is like if your cousin became first lady. Kamala Harris is like if your cousin became VP of the United States.”

Don’t get me wrong, I was not and am not a fan of former First Lady Obama. I would not say that VP Harris has the same political weight as Mrs. Obama. 

Last, but not least:

“I think she doesn’t get to show that personality often enough, and so people haven’t had a chance to get to know her.”

She could have the best personality in the world, and it wouldn’t cover up her ineffective leadership ability. 

The truth is, she’s just not good at her job. The numbers show it, the mass exodus of staffers shows it, her poor performance or lack thereof in the office itself shows it, and you just can’t put a price on ineffectual leadership. It doesn’t matter who the leader may be of any race.

It is now that you can support, share, and encourage the people whom you have faith.
