Vice President Kamala Harris, who has already experienced a string of negative press in recent weeks, was dragged in the media over the past few days after her asinine argument that voter ID is somehow a bad idea because she is under the impression that rural Americans lack ready access to photocopiers.
According to Fox News, a number of high-profile Republicans, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, had a lot to say about Harris’ ridiculous argument, reminding viewers that most people, including Black voters and rural voters, are in favor of voter ID. He also slammed Harris as looking like a “fool” for suggesting otherwise.
In an interview on Fox & Friends, Gingrich pointed out that there is a growing number of Black leaders who have — rightfully — taken offense to the very suggestion by Harris, and President Joe Biden, that Blacks and other minorities aren’t intelligent enough to figure out how to obtain voter ID, or register to vote online.
“Part of what has come out of this, which is fascinating, is a whole range of African-American leaders who have said publicly they are insulted that people like Harris think they are too dumb to be able to get an I.D. And they think they are too dumb to know how to go vote accurately and legally,” Gingrich said.
The former speaker went on to chastize Harris for her ridiculous remarks concerning rural Americans’ apparent inability to find a “Kinkos” or “Office Max” to make photocopies in order to obtain an ID card.
“Harris looks like a fool more than a vice president about half the time and I can’t wait for her comments on Cuba, if she knows where the island even is,” Gingrich said.
The former House Speaker added: “You know and I know, she hasn’t been in an office supply store in her life. She has staff. So she wouldn’t have any idea where office supply stores are. And I would love to know the last time she xeroxed something personally or if she even knows what a Xerox machine is.”
The social media comments in response to Harris’ ridiculous claim were not only accurate but often hilarious. One Twitter user wrote: “Hi, I live on top of a mountain on the WV/VA border and I can photocopy my ID. I mean I do it while moonshining White Lightning while dueling banjos play in the background but I can still do it.”
It’s no wonder that even some White House officials believe that Harris’ future in the White House is questionable, at best. If she continues to mess up as bad as she is now, it’s not a stretch to presume that her party will soon be searching for a viable presidential primary candidate sooner than later.
