It was never going to be easy for Kamala Harris to be the both the first female and first minority Vice President. Conservative media has certainly made sure of that. Fox hosts have blasted Harris as being unqualified and Tucker Carlson claims she slept her way to the top.Now, some Fox pundits are using the Vice President as an example for why more Black women shouldn’t get opportunities. Tomi Lahren made that argument during a Wednesday appearance on Outnumbered.
Host Harris Faulkner commented, “It does give president Biden a win politically, but it doesn’t change some of the decisions potentially that might have a conservative majority on the court.”
Lahren jumped in, “We know what Joe Biden does best is placate to the radical element and radical aggressive base of his party that he believes is the majority. I believe he’s incorrect and I believe that they are the minority.”
The Conservative pundit continued:
“But I’m wondering the kind of justice that he would nominate. Now again I’m sure it would be, as Guy said, a Black woman, he’s got a dedication to that. We saw how well that worked out withKamala Harris. But here’s to hoping he had a better choice in mind for this position.”
