Tucker Carlson Peddles Sexist Smear Against Kamala Harris - 2020-08-11
Fox News host Tucker Carlson revived a sexist jab against newly named Democratic vice-presidential pick Kamala Harris, implying that she got ahead in her political career due to a brief personal relationship with former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown.
Carlson, who recently suggested it was "illegal" for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to prioritize a Black female running mate, kicked off Tuesday night's broadcast by tearing into the California senator.
Right away, the Fox News star said that while other vice presidential contenders had "sincere beliefs," Harris is the "opposite of that" and the "single most transactional human being in America." He then went on to insinuate that unseen leaders in the Democratic Party chose both Biden and Harris, calling it the "first entirely hollow presidential ticket in American history."
