(RoyalPatriot.com )- According to left media, Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) would be America’s vice president right now instead of Kamala Harris in a different reality.
A new book claims Joe Biden was concerned about having to spend his presidential campaign fighting “birther” allegations had he chosen Duckworth. Duckworth is an American citizen and combat hero born in Thailand to a Thai mother and an American father. The authors say then-Vice President Biden witnessed firsthand how Trump ascended to political prominence by making bogus claims that America’s first Black president, Barack Obama, wasn’t genuinely American.
They must not have read the many reports from both left and right publications proving Hillary Clinton’s camp started the birther movement against Obama. Politico admitted the “birther theory” first emerged in the Spring of 2008, as Clinton supporters circulated an anonymous email questioning Obama’s citizenship. Donald Trump simply used the movement as a troll against the Democrats.
In their new book, The New York Times authors Jonathan Martin and Alexander wrote that senator Duckworth got the impression that Biden felt horrible about the message he was giving her. Meaning that his campaign was ready to make a premature concession to Donald Trump’s most “vicious” political tactics.
To the left’s dismay, Donald Trump’s immediate reaction after Biden revealed Harris as his vice presidential nominee in August 2020 was to insinuate she wasn’t quite American, either. Reports said Harris was born to immigrant parents in Oakland, California, thus satisfying the Constitution’s provision that the president and vice president be “natural-born” citizens. And they called Trump a natural-born liar.
When Donald Trump told the media that he heard lawyer John Eastman state that Senator Kamala Harris didn’t meet Constitutional requirements to become Vice President, the left immediately threw racism, birtherism, and xenophobic charges against Trump and Eastman.
John Eastman wrote an opinion piece in Newsweek explaining why he believed Senator Harris was not qualified to be Vice President or President, should the moment arise,
under Constitutional law. Soon after, Newsweek apologized, saying the article was being used as a “tool” to promote racism and xenophobia.
It appears that no one is permitted to criticize any Democrat candidate’s qualifications without facing unfounded retaliation.
