Vice President Kamala Harris is getting blasted for her comments about voter ID and the supposed inability of “rural” voters to comply with voter ID requirements.
Harris was asked on BET-TV if she believed there was a compromise that could be had when it came to voter ID requirements. Some proposals call for voters to include a copy of their IDs on ballots. Harris’s response to the question left many Americans offended and the White House in full damage control mode.
Harris said, “I don’t think that we should underestimate what that could mean, because, in some people’s mind, that means, well, you’re going to have to Xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove that you are who you are.”
Another big mess
That comment from the Vice President has created yet another nightmare of a mess for President Biden and his administration to deal with.
Kamala Harris’s insinuation that rural Americans are living in some kind of technological dark age or simply lack the intellect to photocopy their ID is absurd and incredibly insulting.
Harris went on to double down on her statement, saying, “There are a whole lot of people, especially people who live in rural communities, who don’t — there’s no Kinko’s, there’s no Office Max near them.”
The reaction to Harris’s bizarre statement was swift, and many Americans held nothing back. Texas GOP congressional candidate Jenny Garcia said, “You have to prove who you are to buy a pack of cigarettes or a case of beer but no no, no need to prove who you are to vote.”
Many Republicans pointed out that the Vice President’s comments simply prove how out of touch she truly is with the life of ordinary Americans.
Vice President Harris truly believes that Americans are incapable of doing basic tasks, and therefore voter ID would be too much of a burden. This ignores the fact that for all Americans, ID is a normal part of their lives.
Stuck with Kamala
The Democrat Party is stuck with Kamala Harris at President Biden’s side, and there is nothing they can do to fix this situation. Vice President Harris has distinguished herself from her predecessors by constantly being in the spotlight.
An innocuous Vice President is a major asset that former President Trump recognized with his selection of the quiet and inoffensive Mike Pence.
Vice President Harris would do the Democrat Party a huge favor by actually getting things done behind the scenes instead of riling up Americans every week with a new and absurd statement.
