8. She said socialist, progressive so a hell ya progressive. We have got to get to taking care of the

people and we start day one. Here is what we will do because the people are ready, voting and needing govt.

But, I like the way Harris took it too. She is looking it as Biden saying, tell me your experiences, so was talking on a personal level with Biden. The question was silly in that context and why Harris addressing it as she did reflectively was very good. It was interesting. I am going to watch again. Harris can smile. Both her and Biden live their lives in the moment. I just watched 2 minutes of Biden granddaughters.

26. Isn't "Socialist"

basically supposed to be interpreted as “Communist”? I feel like ever since Obama, right wingers want to tar Democrats with that label but nobody seems to have a good idea what it actually means. Just that it’s a bad thing. Right wingers want to call any and all Democrats socialist, whether or not the label is accurate. As of the moment, Bernie Sanders is the only self-described Socialist.

41. "Since Obama"? Since /forever/.

One of the big successes of conservatives has been mainstreaming a wildly-expansive definition of socialism that used to be the provenance of ideological zealots, guys in country-club bars muttering over their gin & tonics, and assorted other ranting cranks. If they don't like it, it's "socialism."

There are times I'll call myself an "Eisenhower socialist" just to make a point about how this absurdity has been normalized. By that definition, the US was a "socialist country" during WW2 and the Cold War.

It's nuts, and the only thing that's more nuts is the fact that it doesn't get any pushback.

10. Laugh at the stupid questions!

Best protection against those 'gotcha' questions, if you can't be bothered to answer them.

Interviewer: Can I stick a label on you, then hit you with a whole list of negative associations for that label? (*)

Kamala: No, you may not!

(*)
Progressive = unpredictable, disruptive.
Socialist = steal peoples' Constitutional rights!

And completely botched the insertion point. I'm glad Kamala laughed out loud, the timing of that question was not good.

16. What was probably meant to be an "intelligence and enlightened"

question rightfully backfired as it was actually neither intelligent or enlightened. I probably would have laughed too. Kamala has a great laugh. Having her as VP is going to be really refreshing. I can't wait!

Thanks for sharing this, demmiblue.

That’s all I got.

There's a big difference between a socialist and a left-wing, progressive politician.

I'm getting really sick of Republicans calling left wingers, "socialists."

39. Sanders has called himself a socialist, but he really believes in social democracy

He doesn't advocate doing away with free market capitalism for state ownership of the means of production and distribution, which is what socialism is.

May there be 8 years of her laughter and sharp witted intelligence in the White House and on our screens.

The replies to the tweet are showing a ton of idiots trying to smear her...with most of those accounts created just this month, Oct 2020.

Putin's troll farm is full of fucking idiots that are too stupid to cover their tracks it seems.

31. More lazy shit from "reporters" . Their whole thing is just repeating right wing talking points

and bringing on panels of dumbasses and just reporting what they say.

Instead of actual investigative reporting.

Fucking INfotainment nonsense. Glad Kamala Harris laughed rather than treat it as a serious question.

She seemed angry and aggressive for no apparent reason. She was completely out of Harris' intellectual league and it showed.
