(Liberty Bell) – The Trump campaign came out swinging the instant that they heard that presumed Democratic Presidential nominee, Joe Biden, had finally announced his VP pick for the White House.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) Trump would go on to tell reporters, had been his “No. 1 pick” for his rival’s running mate, and she really is a gift to the campaign.
Katrina Pierson, a senior adviser to the Trump campaign, immediately dismissed the “phony” VP candidate and capitalized on Harris’ history of chiding Biden as a racist over his previous opposition to desegregationist busing in his early days as a Senator.
“Not long ago, Kamala Harris called Joe Biden a racist and asked for an apology she never received,” Pierson said in a statement from the campaign. “Clearly, Phony Kamala will abandon her own morals, as well as try to bury her record as a prosecutor, in order to appease the anti-police extremists controlling the Democrat Party.”
Pierson, herself an African American woman who has promoted the website youaintblack.com, named for Biden’s racist whitesplaining as to the “blackness” of pro-Trump African Americans, had quite a funny new nickname for the already easily mockable Harris.
Biden’s “political living will.”
Within minutes of the announcement, the campaign was ready with an attack ad, which was subsequently tweeted out by the president.

“Slow Joe and Phony Kamala, perfect together, wrong for America.”
“In her failed attempt at running for president, Kamala Harris gleefully embraced the left’s radical manifesto, calling for trillions of dollars in new taxes and backing Bernie Sanders’ government takeover of healthcare,” Pierson’s statement said. “She is proof that Joe Biden is an empty shell being filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left.”
Harris dropped out of the presidential race in December but remains well-respected in the party. Her Jamaican and Indian heritage fits well in a party that is becoming more female and less White.
