Kamala’s awkward exit

Empower Wisconsin | Sept 9, 2020

MADISON — Yes, there will be no questions. 

In one of the more awkward moments of the presidential campaign, Democrat vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris at a press event in Wisconsin Monday had to flee from reporter questions at a press conference. 

And Harris made Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes look like a boob in the process. 

“I’m very honored, proud and lucky to have the very soon-to-be Vice President Harris with us today and I will pass it back over to you,” Barnes said at the end of the candidate’s long spiel on the “dignity of work” in Milwaukee. “I know you want to take some questions before you get out of here.”

No, not really. 

“No, I think we’re all set,” one of Harris’ handlers quickly called out, as Joe Biden’s running mate nervously shuffled papers. 

The sound of reporters simultaneously murmuring and trying to ask questions can be heard beneath the voice of a male campaign staff member shouting, “Thank you, folks. We’re all set. We’re going to head out the same way we came.” 

Harris, looking like a heel, decided to offer a banal comment in a lame attempt to soothe the awkward moment. 

“I once lived in Wisconsin. Did you know that?” she said to a reporter, chuckling. 

“I did. Madison,” the reporter called back to seal the banality.  

“Wisconsin is part of my story,” Harris said. 

Her very brief stay in Madison as a 5-year-old is a footnote, if that. 

The Democrat was whisked away without being touched by anything resembling a real question. 

So much for the ”dignity of work.”
