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.

Kamala should be impeached for vocally supporting and funding bail for those arrested in the leftist riots ~ destroying cities by looting, burning buildings/businesses, lasering cop’s eyes, killing people, securing government buildings to lock people in and then attempting arson – all supported by democrat run cities and states. That is insurrection that went on all summer and continued during the inauguration. These mob’s intent is to destroy American and Harris supports it; Biden is silent.

First of all they should never been elected, completely stolen and I can’t understand how they can accept with a straight face. Second, they are both liars and are out for the money they can get from the stupid left. They should, along with all their group be impeached, fired or whatever it takes to get them out of office to save our country. We all want Donald J. Trump back before they completely sell us out.

Harris is the one inciting violence and has for years. She should be gone from any government position. She does and says whatever she wants and, hey, the fake news is fine with that. Free speech should be for all Americans not just for the rich and powerful. Drain the swamp and I do mean the entire swamp. These demo-rats are heading us to another civil war. Please, stop the stupidity.

Maybe one great and wonderful day in the distant, but hopefully, near future Harris, Biden, Omar, AOC, and all the crooked liberals will be somewhere just like that. I mean somewhere where they are asking for “a morsel of food, please, and wahtahhh.” Prison is too good for these despicable idiots. Personally, I think they should all be shot or hung for the treasonous acts they have all committed. Sadly, it has just begun. God help our great country.
