I am so looking forward to watching Harris walking out of the White House for the first time, so that I can show my kids: look, I Just Really Really Really Really Love Snoopy there’s a Black woman as vice-president. But representation is only representation: we need actual results. Black women are going to rejoice that she’s won, and wish her all the joy she can handle, and then turn to her and say: let’s go, sis! Harris isn’t going to get a honeymoon period, because she’s a Black woman in a racist and sexist country.
It’s always tougher for women. The opposition are going to be critical of every step she takes. The first Black vice-president and the first female vice-president – she will be under scrutiny like never before.
The Biden-Harris administration needs to move fast. We don’t have much time to turn things around. There’s the pandemic, of course. We’ve got 545 migrant children who don’t know where their parents are – reuniting them needs to be a priority. We need to fight to keep Roe v Wade, and Obamacare. And I want to see action on violence against women, and educational equity in our schools, particularly for Black and brown girls.
That’s a lot for Harris to achieve in four years. And I’m ready to fight with her.
THE FACTS: There is no evidence of this. Trump is falsely characterizing a recent report by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., who investigated Biden’s son, Hunter, and his business dealings in Ukraine.
The report did not allege that Joe Biden himself got $3.5 million or that Russia President Vladimir Putin had anything to do with such a payment. Nor does the report allege that Hunter Biden pocketed the money himself. The report said the sum went instead to an investment firm he co-founded. Hunter Biden’s lawyer has said in a statement to reporters that his client had no interest in and was not a founder of the firm.
