Many members of the Democratic Party are celebrating the selection of Kamala Harris as Joe Biden’s running mate.
Even progressive liberals like Bernie Sanders are happy with the pick.
"Congratulations to @KamalaHarris, who will make history as our next Vice President. She understands what it takes to stand up for working people, fight for health care for all, and take down the most corrupt administration in history. Let’s get to work and win," Sanders tweeted.
But before you think Democrats – particularly far-left liberals – are happy with the Harris selection… check out what vocal, progressive supporters of Sanders had to say about Harris.
Hint… it’s NOT GOOD.
According to Fox News, many prominent Sanders supporters are less than thrilled with Biden’s VP pick.
For instance, Briahna Joy Gray, who previously served as Sanders' national press secretary and has been an outspoken critic of Biden since Sanders withdrew from the race, invoked Harris' tenure as the California attorney general.
"We are in the midst of the largest protest movement in American history, the subject of which is excessive policing, and the Democratic Party chose a “top cop” and the author of the Joe Biden crime bill to save us from Trump. The contempt for the base is, wow," Gray reacted.
And there’s left-leaning journalist Michael Tracey called Biden's selection a "nightmarishly bad pick in every way."
"Kamala's presidential campaign was a total humiliating disaster. One of the worst of all time, considering the amount of unearned hype she received. Did everybody miss that, or what?" Tracey asked.
Oh, and even The Hill’s Krystal Ball wrote a scathing review of the Harris selection.
"Apparently the answer to a movement for black lives is someone who helped perpetuate a lock em up regime while letting the powerful in Silicon Valley and Wall Streeters like Steve Mnuchin loot with impunity. Happy 2020," The Hill's Krystal Ball wrote.
Progressive voters and activists are going to be very loud in the coming weeks… and don’t expect then to stop criticizing the Biden/Harris ticket.
This could turn off many liberal voters and play right into the hands of Donald Trump’s re-election bid!
