Don't hold back, Brian!
On this morning's Fox & Friends, co-host Brian Kilmeade absolutely unloaded on Kamala Harris. Kilmeade was commenting on a New York Times article containing this line:
"Ms. Harris has privately told her allies that the news coverage of her would be different if she were any of her 48 predecessors, whom she has described as all white and male."
"To me, this is a lack of performance. This is a lack of interest. This is laziness. And this is a complaint-a-holic who just wants to be anointed president, and she's angry that she's not."
And don't you love how the New York Times describes Kamala kvetching "privately" to her allies? From Harris' mouth to the front page of the Times in no time. Some "privately!"
Steve Doocy, quoting Meghan McCain in the Daily Mail, made a good point in response: The traits that Harris complains are hurting her—being a woman and a person of color—are the very qualities that got her the veep gig in the first place!
Note: look for the cancel culturists to come after Kilmeade for accusing Harris of "laziness."

CARLEY SHIMKUS: And the New York Times is out with a new piece about Kamala Harris, and it's called, "Heir Apparent or Afterthought? The frustrations of Kamala Harris. The vice president’s allies are increasingly concerned that President Biden relied on her to win but does not need her to govern."
And the New York Times goes on to write, "Ms. Harris has privately told her allies that the news coverage of her would be different if she were any of her 48 predecessors, whom she has described as all white and all male."
So, Brian the issue isn’t Kamala Harris. It's that everybody is attacking her because she is a woman and she is a minority.
BRIAN KILMEADE: Unbelievable. We kind of had this yesterday, but it was much expanded on today, for this to make the front page of the New York Times. For this to come out, a week after the San Francisco Chronicle. A week after the Los Angeles Times story. And then to her sit-down with Face the Nation. She's on a full offensive.
And believe me, Festivus was yesterday, where you air your grievances. She actually used the New York Times to air her grievances, and is woe is me. I think it's absolutely pathetic, she pulled the woman card, the minority card, and comes out and says, if I was a white male things would be different. No, if you were a white male, who didn’t show up for the border, didn’t do anything on voting rights, the two things the president asked you to do, you'd be vehemently criticized.
In fact, I think, instinctively, being a Democrat and a minority and a woman, I think people absolutely hold back. And if you look at what Henry Cuellar said . . . that Representative Cuellar says, who's a moderate from Texas who's on the border and desperate for some help. He said: "I say this very respectfully to her. Doesn’t look like she's very interested in it. So I'm going to move on to other folks on this issue."
She did nothing! She doesn’t even call the Central American countries. She showed up once. She blew up when Lester Holt asked her are you – why weren’t you visiting earlier or going to the border? She said I didn’t go to Europe either.
To me, this is a lack of performance. This is a lack of interest. This is laziness. And this is a complaint-a-holic who just wants to be anointed president, and she's angry that she's not.

STEVE DOOCY: In the Daily Mail this morning, Meghan McCain comments about what Kamala Harris is complaining about. And she says—she finds the comments ridiculous—she says, "it’s not that we aren’t aware of racism and sexism in the country. It is that the vice president, Harris, may not have been picked for vice president if she wasn’t a woman, and a woman of color! The very thing she is blaming all her problems on is what got her invited to the party in the first place."
