TV pundit Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu has waded into the discussion that welcomed the choice of California Senator Kamala Harris by US 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate Senator Joe Biden as his running mate.
Speaking on the BBC this morning, the erudite commentator said “Kamala Harris is not just a tick box, she has a strong credible track record and has a number of 1sts under her belt”
On Trumps habitual manner of responding to any news that challenges his ego and intellect, Shogbamu said “. “Nasty” from Trump is a compliment. He is scared of strong women particularly Black women. He can’t respond to the strength, intellect & no-nonsense of women of colour. The #BidenHarris2020 ticket is the nail to his re-election coffin.
The Trump campaign was quick to issue a statement on Biden’s pick for vice president, calling her “Phony Kamala shortly after the presidential candidate made the announcement on Tuesday. And in his talk in response to the announcement, Trump called Kamala Harris ‘nasty’ in record number of times and suggested she lied about smoking cannabis while listening to Snoop Dogg. He malso criticized Kamala Harris, on her past and tweeted a campaign video attacking both of them.
Joe Biden raised $26 million in the 24 hours after he named Kamala Harris as his running mate, doubling his previous one-day record and signalling enthusiasm among Democrats following the selection of the first Black woman on a major party’s presidential ticket.
