WaPo busted for stealth-editing unflattering Kamala Harris interview

Vice President Kamala Harris has been involved in a number of PR dustups recently, the most recent one caused by the Washington Post. 

Amid adoring coverage of Harris and the newly-minted President Bident, the Post was busted for removing one of Harris’s highly unflattering anecdotes in an interview the former Senator gave the publication in July of 2019.

Harris, who has long been criticized for her inconsistently-applied but heavy-handed approach to prosecution during her career, used a highly insensitive analogy about prisoners to explain her experience on the campaign trail — and laughed about it.

Harris told the Post at the time:

It was the Fourth of July, Independence Day, and Kamala Harris was explaining to her sister, Maya, that campaigns are like prisons.

She’d been recounting how in the days before the Democratic debate in Miami life had actually slowed down to a manageable pace. Kamala, Maya and the rest of the team had spent three days prepping for that contest in a beach-facing hotel suite, where they closed the curtains to blot out the fun. But for all the hours of studying policy and practicing the zingers that would supercharge her candidacy, the trip allowed for a break in an otherwise all-encompassing schedule.

“I actually got sleep,” Kamala said, sitting in a Hilton conference room, beside her sister, and smiling as she recalled walks on the beach with her husband and that one morning SoulCycle class she was able to take.

“That kind of stuff,” Kamala said between sips of iced tea, “which was about bringing a little normal to the days, that was a treat for me.”

“I mean, in some ways it was a treat,” Maya said. “But not really.”

“It’s a treat that a prisoner gets when they ask for, ‘A morsel of food please,’” Kamala said shoving her hands forward as if clutching a metal plate, her voice now trembling like an old British man locked in a Dickensian jail cell. “‘And water! I just want wahtahhh….’ Your standards really go out the f—ing window.”

Kamala burst into laughter.

The Post re-published the profile last week but conveniently removed and replaced the entire exchange without explanation — though we can guess that the editorial decision could have something to do with the fact that the Post has long abandoned any pretense of impartiality.

Hawk-eyed journalists at Reason Magazine called out the Post for the mysterious deletion — noting that the publication doesn’t make a regular practice of editing profiles to protect the subject — and writing that Harris’s original story “provided a mask-slipping moment that seemed to perfectly capture a warped sense of justice and lack of basic human dignity—all in just a few hundred words.”

After the social media uproar about the removal, the Post added a link to the original profile, though the updated piece remains the primary version.

  1. We need President Trump back. Harris and Biden are despicable left wing idiots who should not have anything to do with our government. Biden cancelling pipeline should show ones who voted for this group just how awful the democrats are!!!!

  2. Esta Sra es una copia del egocentrismo y una mala decisión política del Gobierno Demócrata Liberal,como es de todos sabido Biden es una marioneta de ,Obama,Pelosi,Hilary,y la Harris,el 95 % de las ordenes firmadas en menos de 48 horas fueron creadas por ese gobierno detrás del trono,y los ciudadanos recibieron el fracaso de sus malas elecciones

    1. This is America, we speak ENGLISH if you don’t want to speak English then go back to where ever you came from! W have no idea what you posted and this is an open forum , if you want to print Spanish or whatever, then also print it in English!

  3. She promoted bail money for rioters so they could be put right back on the street. My question since this put not only rioters but rapists and murders back on the street also is she an accessory to murder?
    Next question. On CNN she said the rioters would continue and should continue to riot. Should she be impeached for inciting riots since they want to impeach Trump?

    1. Exactly! She was a pinned member. Along with Ilhan Omar, who did the same.
      They both said, “these are just things that can be rebuilt”.

    2. Kameltoe definitely should be impeached! She is a disgrace. She got where she is by fooling around with a married man, who btw, talked against her eventually, as did her father. This tells us that she is NO GOOD!!

    3. Absolutely yes, that’s aiding&abetting antifa and blm. Along with pelousy waters Schiff Schumer aoc Omar, and many others. They can not impeach Trump for something they have been doing since Trump stepped into WH.

    4. I totally agree she should be impeached
      The double standard for President Trump relative to the Democrats is criminal!
      I am shattered about what garbage is running our country and the new media.

  4. She is just like all the other wing loonies. They can say or do anything they want and it’s ok, but when someone other than those nasty evil human beings if in fact they are human says something no matter what they either silence their speech or try to criminalize them. We don’t need a government that hates the very people?that pay their wages. Soon this will all change. It certainly did after the revolution.

  5. Joe and the ho. Look at the faces of evil in the presidential cabinet. They can shove the “green new deal” where the sun doesn’t shine. Heating with coal and wood the only way to go…

  6. harris is real piece of work, she tells everyone she is the first VP of color. This is how stupid she, the first VP of color was Charles Curtis, a republican that was elected in 1939.
