Democratic Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones, who announced back in April he was throwing his support behind President Donald Trump in the upcoming 2020 election, took Sen. Kamala Harris, the recently announced vice presidential running mate of Joe Biden, straight to the woodshed by saying that the Democrats thought by getting her on board she would “help them save the Black vote, but that was the wrong person for that job to do that.”
Jones made his controversial comments on the Wednesday edition of “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning, going on to say, “Trump has a better record on helping black men and women than Kamala Harris has, than Joe Biden has and as this story gets told more and more African-Americans are coming his way and that is what they’re afraid of.”
Here’s more from Fox News:
“She flip-flops,” Jones added on Wednesday. He also accused her of saying “anything she can to get elected.”
“Joe Biden has the right string, but the wrong yo-yo,” he went on to say, pointing out that Harris is “liberal.”
He added, “She accused Biden of being biased when it came to busing.”
The decision to choose Harris, following months of secret meetings and closely held deliberations, would indicate the former vice president is setting aside their friction from the primary campaign. Jones was pointing to the fact that Harris memorably drew sharp contrasts with Biden when she challenged him on the debate stage over his past resistance to federally mandated desegregation busing.
Jones also brings up the fact that when Biden was accused of sexual assault by multiple women, Harris stated she believed the victims. And yet, here we are, with Harris now joining that man’s presidential campaign as his running mate.
“And so how can you believe in someone who is a racist, someone who has committed sexual assault, but you want to be on his ticket?” asked the Georgia Democrat. “That sounds like blind ambitions over really the Black community and Black voters.”
Yeah, it doesn’t seem Joe Biden really did himself any favors by picking Harris, but regardless, the media will gush over the whole thing because they are so desperate to get rid of Trump.
