We see so much negative press for Kamala Harris. I don’t recall seeing so much negative press for a year 1 VP who has at least a couple of years left before a possible Presidential run before.

I wonder what’s different. 🤷🏾‍♀️

Yeah, what a puzzle.

By the way, the comments on this one are pretty awful.

@TonyStark @MJ
Opinions from people that think they have better political insight than Joe Biden should not be trusted imo. His successful political career and vast experience should be followed by Democratic Party members and it may be. I get the impression that most people opposed to Biden's administration are members of the Independent Party if not the GOP. So anyway, I see no need to worry about Harris' public approval rating in January, 2022.

@MJ Or any VP in my lifetime. Nixon was president when I was born, but babies aren't aware of how the media is covering the VP so I can't speak to the contemporaneous treatment of Spiro Agnew, though I'm sure no one followed him like this even though (according to Rachel Maddow's book that came out last year) his crookedness was well-known by absolutely everyone in the great state of Maryland. Harris, a popular senator before she was offered the spot on Biden's ticket, deserves none of this negative coverage.

@MJ Quayle got a lot of negative press

and generally earned it :)
