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.

I agree with all, and she stole a story that was not hers, the one about falling out of the stroller and her parents having to go look for her? Strollers are pushed in front of the pusher and if she had fallen out they would have put her back in not asking her, at 3, what she wanted. At that age parents tell you what is what. Greene has it right.

ITS Picked by a filthy Rich few! Wonder how many she had to ??????? to get the job!

It’s sad that some people don’t research things or people out before they do something. They go with what they are fed. When you get a house they have to know about you than you know yourself so if she is going to be in the White House(not just an apt.or regular house) she sound be have an extensive background and ability to be there and laying it all out there for the people. Where Biden is concerned “ lost cause”. He is being told what and how to do things.

Hi J Lara!
Did you know Kamala D. Harris dated the former old man mayor of San Francisco, Willie Brown? KDHarris said that old Willie was like an albatross around her neck. [I will go find the whole article and e-mail it to you]. But whoa!

There is always going to be some type of corruption in government, sad but true, but this is beyond right!! The entire upper tier needs to be redone….this America not some 3rd world country..not yet anyway. Thank God, he is still in charge! What is in the dark shall come to light!! They need to start repentance n get out of our government n let this country be great again!!

Hi Nina!
That woman, Kamala D. Harris knew what she was doing. She dated that old man, former mayor of San Francisco,
Willie Brown? KDHarris knew which side of the bread is buttered. According to the article, KdHarris compared the old man to an albatross around her neck. But who cares? Not KDHarris. Old Willie has clouts. That’s how Kamala got her job as “attorney general of California.” And the rest is history.

A very sad day for America these kind of people should not be in government but that’s what money does to our political system, Trump did his best to drain the swamp, but unfortunately the media and corrupt big tech pushed all the buttons. Pelosi Schumer, Schiff ,and most Democrats are the real threat to the U .S .A.

And the money they have cost us citizens. They need to start getting our approvals for any money spent that was contributed by the citizens. They need to place the monies we contribute to on a list and what they were used for and who used em and notify the all citizens where we can find this list to review.

She sold her Soul to the Devil for this position. Hope she enjoys the hand up her rear-end and the ear piece planted inside her ears. To never be permitted to express another thought of her own. You gotta pay the Piper Kamala. I will bet she wishes she had never agreed to the life of a Prison Inmate at the Asylum of team Biden. From the moment she agreed to take this position? She agreed to hand over every thought. And her FREEDOM’S. Especially, her FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Maybe, someday she will be able to break out of her self inflicted Prison Cell? I would guess Not.? I am only guessing about this? It appears this is what is happening to Harris and Biden? Only she is still sane for the moment.? And still knows what is happening to her. … SHE IS A WILD CARD? … They might not be able to get her to dance on cue forever? Hummm

The first time I saw her speak I knew she was fake. I think she went to school to learn all of those fake faces she uses when she is being put down. I can read her like a book. She loves to talk about herself and all of her accomplishments (?) like she is so in love with herself. She asks questions and expects answers in a very smirky way but if you ask for answers she will not give them and again shows those phony faces of hers.

I guess all that voted them in will also suffer the consequences of all the evil these two are doing to America unless they both are impeached and removed from office and the feds come and put the shackles on them they will do as they please. They are very unstable and going on their own to destroy this country and they live in it. Expell them both from the USA. THEY HATE AMERICA AND THOSE IN CONGRESS ALSO ! UNLESS WE ALL SIT BACK AND NOT PAY TAXES THEN WHAT WILL THEY DO WITHOUT MONEY JUST LIKE THE AMERICANS WHO LOST THEIR JOB THROUGH JOE BIDEN TO HELP CHINA.
