The Morning Briefing: Kamala Harris Will Remind Everyone How Awful She Is During Confirmation Hearing

Democrats May Regret Harris Being Back in the Confirmation Hearing Spotlight

Hump Day is here and we plod on into the end of the week as best we can. I’ll be plodding with a bit of whiskey. I hope you’re all having a wonderful start to your day, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends.


One big plot twist to this David Lynch movie that we’re calling 2020 is that the Democrats’ nominee for vice president also sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Kamala Harris will have to take some time off of the strange, mostly virtual campaign trail that she and Grandpa Gropes have been on so she can attend to her day job. It’s not like Biden will be able to pick up the slack with Harris in Washington for several days.

We’re in campaign crunch time and the stakes have been raised since the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg last Friday. This is when candidates are wearing themselves out to make their cases. On Tuesday, Biden officially called it a day before noon for the second time in four days.

He’s gassed and there is more than a month to go. If Harris is pulled away from covering for this drooling idiot there’s a chance that the water-carrying press may not be able to gloss over his extended nap time.

Some on the Left think that the confirmation hearing could be a golden campaign opportunity for Kamala Harris.


President Trump’s Supreme Court plans have created a major opportunity for Sen. Kamala Harris to go on offense, Axios’ Alexi McCammond reports.

Why it matters: A confirmation fight puts Harris back in the spotlight thanks to her role on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

  • Allies still point to her grilling Justice Brett Kavanaugh in 2018 (clips of which have racked up millions of views on YouTube) and they laugh at her “suggested … hinted … inferred?” exchange with Attorney General William Barr in May regarding the Mueller report.
  • These exchanges with Harris often go viral and they usually showcase a moment where she’s riffing or offering a snap reaction to the person she’s questioning.
  • Those are the electric moments that you can’t always learn during debate prep, and allies say they show that Harris is meticulous and skilled at the clapback — arguing both will serve her well in the Oct. 7 debate against VP Mike Pence.

I think there’s a lot of mental revisionist history going on there, unless what they are hoping for is that Harris gets another opportunity to remind everyone what a shrill shrew she is.

As we have noted many times before, Kamala Harris is so off-putting that her own party decided she was the first of the “top tier” candidates in the Democratic primary race who needed to go. Increased exposure to the public doesn’t really go well for Harris.

Since it’s a given that President Trump is going to nominate a woman, Harris’s Kavanaugh antics almost certainly won’t play as favorably as the Axios writer thinks.

If, as noted in yesterday’s Morning Briefing, Amy Coney Barrett or Barbara Lagoa are nominated, Harris may be exposed for the anti-Catholic bigot that she is:

In 2018, Kamala Harris suggested that Judge Brian Buescher was unfit to serve on the bench because he is a member of the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal organization and charitable group with millions of members.

“Since 1993, you have been a member of the Knights of Columbus, an all-male society comprised primarily of Catholic men,” Harris began. “In 2016, Carl Anderson, leader of the Knights of Columbus, described abortion as ‘a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40 million deaths.’ Mr. Anderson went on to say that ‘abortion is the killing of the innocent on a massive scale.’ Were you aware that the Knights of Columbus opposed a woman’s right to choose when you joined the organization?”

A Catholic organization opposing abortion? Who knew?

The optics of Harris teeing off on a Roman Catholic mother with a shrieking progressive “gender traitor” rant won’t really help Team Harris-Biden win over any hearts and minds in swing states where the polls are tight.


It really doesn’t matter that the people who were already going to vote for the Democrat Trojan Horse ticket will be thrilled with whatever Harris does during the hearing. The people she needs to reach will see her for what she is.

And that’s terribly unpleasant.
