Late-night comics and social media have discovered California’s tiger-like Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris — and they like what they see.
On Wednesday’s “Full Frontal,” host Samantha Bee lashed Jeff Sessions — “the DOJ’s garden gnome” — for his sexist treatment of the new California senator at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing.
“Sessions repeatedly talked over Harris as she questioned him about his relationship with Russia,” noted Rolling Stone. “When his interruptions failed to get him off the hook, the Attorney General started complaining. ‘I’m not able to be rushed this fast,’ he said at one point. ‘It makes me nervous.’
“Bee had a simple explanation for Sessions’ behavior: racism,” Rolling Stone said.
“You have to understand that about a third of Jeff’s RAM is dedicated to not saying the N-word,” Bee said. “And that goes up to two-thirds when a smart woman of color is lobbing questions at him like a tennis ball launcher.”
Harris’ take-no-prisoners performance rated her POTUS 2020 mentions, even eclipsing Elizabeth Warren as the Superwoman to Watch.
Her fan base:
With Hillary marginalised we are seeing the misogynists pre-emptively training their vile rhetoric on @KamalaHarris

Overheard: If you say “Kamala Harris” three times to a mirror, an old white guy appears and interrupts you.
