The Attacks on Kamala Harris

 ("Her Voice? Her Name? G.O.P.'s Raw Personal Attacks on Kamala Harris") 

You indicate that the "Trump campaign struggled to launch a clear attack" against Ms. Harris but that is not accurate.Their's has always been a theme park filled with a basketful of different hatreds. And in Kamala Harris there are Republican riches to be mined.

Hatred of blacks
Hatred of women
Hatred of black women
Hatred of angry black women
Hatred of angry, powerful black women
Hatred of angry, powerful black women, born of immigrants
Hatred of angry, powerful black women who are not "really" black
Hatred of angry, powerful black women whose very name raises suspicion they are not true Americans

This is the Trump version of a campaign strategy and though you might perceive it as disjointed and disorganized it is anything but. 

Bigotry, misogyny and xenophobia all sell well.

And here’s more from Despicable Donald....


“The “suburban housewife” will be voting for me. They want safety & are thrilled that I ended the long running program where low income housing would invade their neighborhood. Biden would reinstall it, in a bigger form, with Corey Booker in charge!”

Good for Booker who came back with:

“Donaled, your racism is showing.”

Booker added an extra E to the president’s first name after Trump had misspelled Booker’s first name (calling him Corey).
