    Right after Joe Biden announced Kamala Harris as his running mate, Donald Trump called her nasty, his catch-all word for any woman he doesn't like.

    Right after Joe Biden announced Harris as his running mate, Eric Trump gave a thumbs up to a tweet calling Harris a "whore". The tweet implied she was a whore because the poster said she was a "whorendous" choice.

    So this is the criticism of Harris from the right? She's nasty and a whore?

      I like to think that criticism of Harris would be based on her record rather than prepubescent name calling.

      Is this the best that Team Trump has got?

        Did you see that now the right wing is promoting a birther story? Apparently they think Harris isn’t qualified because of something to do with her parents.

          This just the beginning, the President borders on a foundation of misogyny with his attacks. He and his son have already engaged in vulgar and coarse name calling that certainly can't help Trump with the female vote this fall.

            Here's how Trump and his campaign described her. Apparently, the campaign sent this out to his supporters, soliciting donations.

            "the meanest, the most horrible, most disrespectful of anybody in the U.S. Senate."

              His quote in its context. Trump referred to her demeanor, not her person.
              "Donald Trump said that Kamala Harris, the presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee, called her “nasty” for the way that she questioned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and said that he was surprised that Joe Biden picked her as his running mate.

              “I was surprised that he picked her,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday. “I have been watching her for a long time. I was a little surprised. She was extraordinarily nasty to Brett Kavanaugh — Judge Kavanaugh then, now Justice Kavanaugh. She was nasty to a level that was just a horrible thing the way she treated now-Justice Kavanaugh, and I won’t forget that soon.”

              He also called her “the meanest” and “disrespectful.”

          It isn't the right wing. It's a story in Newsweek. A left leaning magazine.

            Newsweek hatched a birther story?

            The birther thing came from a publication called Judicial Watch and a writer named Tom Fitton. So, very right wing, as usual.

              Here is an editor's note from Newsweek about the op ed article in Newsweek about Kamala Harris's ineligibility to hold the office, by his understanding of the meaning of the guidelines in the constitution.

              Call me right wing, for pointing out a truthful fact. At least you aren't posing as a far right conspiracy theorist anymore.

                That was a nice catch. I haven't followed this issue, or this thread, but I can see how your link derails the claim of the comment that started it.

                  Not sure how that derails calling her nasty and a whore. Further, not sure how it derails the race-based argument that Harris is not eligible because her parents were foreigners and she owes her allegiance to another country. This is the same right-wing garbage we got with Obama. He’s not a real American. Harris isn’t a real American.

                    You must have me at a disadvantage Sychophantastic, because I have not followed this issue beyond this thread.

                    At this point, Live to Learn's explanatory link made sense to me. There is no "controversy" or "conspiracy" regarding Harris' birth eligibility, there is only an ongoing scholarly debate about the Constitutional aspects of the "citizen" issue—which has been ongoing well before Harris hit the scene.

                    You are completely twisting the debate issue to follow an agenda that is ridiculous. And any 'Right-wing' folks that consider this a real issue are idiots too.

                    My comment, and the point of this thread it addressed, have nothing to do with name-calling. That's on you.

                    Live to Learn's link does completely derail the claim that a Newsweek article, (which factually described wasn't a reporting article but was instead an opinion piece), claims there is a Right-wing birther movement against Harris.

                    Everything is not about race. Those who refuse to allow a credible question to advance simply because there is a person of color involved are, to me, the most racist of all. What was the intent of that section in the constitution? How do we apply it in the modern world? It's a complex question we need to answer. They asked the same thing about,who was it? Ted Cruz?  Why is it ok to ask questions as long as a minority isn't part of the equation?

                    Kamala is a politician. She has said unkind things, herself. She has unfairly demonized people with twisted facts, herself. Give us all a break. Wait for a real reason to run to her defense, if one happens. This one's a non starter.

          Not the right, a journalist that wrote an article for News Week... Seems odd you think anyone on the right bought into the story. I have seen very little media coverage on the story. Other than a press person asking the president about the article. And he said he knew little about the article other than the journalist John Eastman, professor of law at Chapman University. He made no comment on its content... Other than that media is not covering the article in question. No one is promoting the story on any respectable media outlet.

        I think Kamala Harris has a lot of things going against her that team Trump can use against her and Biden.  This video link proves that

          Damn it, Joe.

          Here we are screwing up fresh out of the starting gate.

          Joe and his entourage have had adequate time to vet these candidates properly knowing that desperate Republicans would dig deep into their bags of dirty tricks to win. This is our screwup.

          Considering the crap the GOP put Obama through and Harris' background, I would have anticipated this concern and would have made sure that she was legally eligible without question or select another candidate. It is just another area of contention that we cannot afford right now.

          These guys are not on the ball, and this is how we lose in 2020.

          If I did not know better, I would say that the Republicans are surreptitiously selecting our candidates with a built in poison pill.

          Joe, please spend less time pandering and more time doing the job right.

            Or you are beginning to find out just how poisonous the top of the "progressive" party really is....

              No matter how poisonous, it is still better than the worst President in history.

              Also, neither Biden nor Harris is all that progressive.

              Obviously, you haven't a clue as to what progressive democrats are, otherwise you would not have said this.

              If the progressive wing of the party were in fact running things, you would have different candidates.

              Those in control of the party apparatus are, unfortunately, no sot progressive

      Bottom line though, Trump's name calling is a defensive mechanism used my many with his type of mental illness.  They have to do it to overcome their deep-seated sense that they aren't good enough.
