If you thought you’d heard all of the preposterous reasons Republicans can possibly come up with for why they don’t like Vice President Kamala Harris (hint: it’s because she’s black), consider what a caller had to say on the C-SPAN program Washington Journal.
The caller identified himself as Rory from California, and it didn’t take long before he was prattling on about the 25th Amendment and how a member of the GOP could rise to the White House.
Host Bill Scanlan asked, “What would she be impeached on, Rory?”
Rory suggested it would be because Harris is “always laughing.”
The only reason Harris could be impeached, according to the U.S. Constitution, is for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Last time I checked, laughing didn’t fit into either of those categories.
Again, the reason conservatives despise Harris is because she’s a strong, successful black woman, as Color of Change President Arisha Hatch noted during an interview with the Los Angeles Times:
But it’s really all about the color of her skin and her gender. That’s what irks Republicans the most.
