From Hunter Biden to cognitive decline, the GOP has lobbed attacks at Joe Biden for months and nothing has landed. They are having a similar issue with his running mate Kamala Harris. Republicans and the Conservative media can’t seem to decide if she’s too moderate or too radical.
Republicans are also bothered about the huge amount of media coverage that Harris is getting. Sarah Palin appeared on Fox News Wednesday night to discuss the Democratic VP candidate. She told host Tucker Carlson that she would have never “prostituted herself” the way Harris has.
Back in 2008 when John McCain selected Palin to be his running mate, she also received massive media coverage. From magazine covers to a Tina Fey impression on Saturday Night Live, Palin was all over the place.
Carlson, however, seems to have forgotten all of that. He asked Palin, “Looking back, is there anything you could have done to get the kind of coverage that Kamala Harris is getting now? Like you care about equality deep within your soul, that you’re a rockstar, a celebrity, you’re the Dalai Lama reincarnated. Could you have done anything to get that kind of coverage?”

The former Alaskan governor responded, “I would not have prosituted myself in terms of changing any of my positions, in order to garner better press. For instance, I’m all about all of our freedoms, including the 2nd Amendment. And I would not, for instance, say mandatory gun confiscation which the Democrats are, umm, rooting for.”
