Hemingway: Biden Should Have Picked Centrist VP To Win Over Swing State Voters

The Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway took aim at Sen. Kamala Harris’ far-left record on “The Ingraham Angle” Tuesday night, after Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden announced Harris as his running mate.

“There’s a reason why Republicans seem a little more excited by this pick than Democrats do,” Hemingway said, adding that Biden should have picked a moderate if he wanted to attract the voters that Hillary Clinton lost in 2016. “Instead, he made a decision to go for a far-left, California Democrat.”

“She wears well for the first 15 minutes and then people kind of get tired of her,” Hemingway continued, suggesting that Harris’ biggest problem is her extremely liberal views.

Harris is “so radical on abortion she’s actually tried to imprison pro-lifers and journalists who do work exposing what is happening in abortion clinics,” Hemingway said, referring to then-Attorney General of California Harris’ prosecution of undercover journalist David Daleiden.

Hemingway criticized the way Harris handled Senate confirmation hearings for Justice Brett Kavanaugh, calling Harris a “big ringleader” of the effort to take down Kavanaugh.

Harris also expressed support for actor Jussie Smollett after he staged a fake racist and homophobic attack on himself, Hemingway added.

“She’s got really difficult positions that will come up,” Hemingway said. “I’m sure the Trump campaign is happy to talk about each and every one of them.”
