VP Harris' new comms director suggested Biden 'Dazed and confused,' slammed Trump for 'janky science vaccine'
Jamal Simmons has previously criticized his new boss, VP Kamala Harris, and President Biden

Vice President Kamala Harris’ new communications director once suggested President Biden was "dazed and confused" and accused former President Trump of "pushing a janky science vaccine."

Jamal Simmons is set to be named the new communications director for Harris, replacing Ashley Etienne, who left in December, Fox News has confirmed.

Simmons previously hosted a news show for The Hill called "Why You Should Care," in which he aired a segment in August 2019 titled "Dazed & Confused," poking fun at Biden for the many conflated and exaggerated stories he’s told the public over the years.

"We do this story about once a week!" Simmons said at the time. "It’s what you get with Uncle Joe."


Simmons also cast doubt on COVID-19 vaccines while the Trump administration rushed to get one approved for emergency use in 2020.

"Trump’s fatally ill-managed Coronavirus response seems to have turned voters off to him the way Katrina destroyed Bush’s political reputation, but pushing a janky science vaccine into the public for political purposes would turn incompetent culpability into intentional harm," he tweeted in September 2020. A conservative would be banished from social media for saying such things about the sacred vaccine these days...

...

Simmons also had a few things to say about then-Sen. Harris’ presidential campaign during the Democratic primary.

"Prior to the debate I had been having bad feelings about the Harris campaign," he wrote in July 2019. "It seemed listless, unfocused. These lackluster fundraising totals are not a surprise. I'm curious to see how this changes over the summer, now that Kamala's poll numbers have increased and Biden seems more like a winged bird than the inevitable nominee."

Simmons has also tweeted comments that would likely spark the ire of today's progressives.

In 2010, Simmons repeatedly advocated for the arrest of illegal immigrants.

"Just saw 2 undocumented folks talking on MSNBC. One Law student the other a protester. Can someone explain why ICE is not picking them up?" he tweeted Nov. 29, 2010.

"I'll try this again: Just saw 2 undocumented folks talking on MSNBC and have serious legal question. Why wouldn't ICE pick them up?" he asked. "We [should] harden borders & ease visas/find ways to bring undocumented into legal status/punish employers. My [question] was [a] common sense one."

Good.

This will confuse Kamala-toe even more than she already is. Let Simmons spread the disinformation muck and thoroughly cloud the Dem message.

The old saying - "Never interrupt your enemy when he's making a mistake."

Carry on, Simmons. Wield your pen and your visage. Spread the filth. It's what you do.

Isn't this something that gets you banned on twitter and other social medias for spreading disinformation?

VP Harris' new comms director said George W. Bush 'stole' election from Gore, was 'illegitimate'
Jamal Simmons said the Al Gore and Joe Lieberman ticket 'didn't lose' in 2000

Vice President Kamala Harris' new communications director repeatedly wrote on Twitter that his former boss, Al Gore, won the 2000 presidential election and that George W. Bush was an "illegitimate" president.

Jamal Simmons, a longtime Democratic operative and political analyst, was announced last week as the replacement for Ashley Etienne, who left the vice president's office last month along with other staffers.

Between 2012 and 2021, Simmons tweeted multiple times about how he believes Bush "stole" the election from Gore in 2000. Simmons, who was the deputy communications director for the Gore-Lieberman campaign, also called Bush's first term "illegitimate."

or does simmons get a pass for his "Big Lie" because he is black and working for a (half) black female VP?
