Kamala Harris Was Rudely Interrupted By A White Man At A Presidential Forum And I’m Disgusted

MoveOn Big Ideas Presidential Forum

Source: Kimberly White / Getty

At MoveOn’s Big Ideas forum this weekend, 2020 presidential candidates were given the platform to discuss how they would turn this country around if they won the election. While candidate Kamala Harris was on stage discussing her agenda to help close the pay gap between men and women, an unknown man crashed the stage. It turns out the man that snatched the microphone from Harris is an animal rights activist named Aidan Cook. He rudely interrupted Harris’ speech about the gender pay gap in hopes of raising awareness about the mass extinction of animals. His attempt was unsuccessful as many hopped on stage to escort him off.

“We sincerely regret that a protestor was able to gain access to the stage at our forum today & we apologize to Sen. [Kamala Harris.] The protester was removed & the program resumed. MoveOn members were excited to hear Harris continue to discuss her Big Idea to achieve pay equity,” MoveOn said via Twitter.

Cook told a reporter from The Guardian that he was well aware of how terrible it looked for him to rush the stage and snatch a microphone from a black woman.

“I did,” he said. “I tried to show my profound respect for each of the people onstage.”

What Cook did was blatantly disrespectful and also symbolizes how devalued the voice of black women is in this country. The fact that Cook thought it was appropriate to bombard the stage and disrupt a noteworthy and necessary conversation between two black women shows the audacity of white privilege and the problematics of it. The point of the Big Ideas forum was to give presidential candidates the stage, so this was not the place or time for him to speak up for animals.

Cook’s efforts were unsuccessful anyway because what is most memorable about his actions is how insolent they were to Harris and the entire forum. People will remember that a white man continued the narrative that it is acceptable to take a platform that was not his from a black woman and disregard her and whatever she was saying. Next time, Cook needs to save his speech for the next animal rights rally, not for when it is time to figure out who we want to run our country.

Take a look at what happened below.

President Trump Presents Tiger Woods With the Presidential Medal of Freedom

President Trump presented Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in a ceremony at the White House Rose Garden on Monday.

“We are in the presence of a true legend, an extraordinary athlete who has transformed golf and achieved new levels of dominance,” Trump said in an address where he gave an overview of Woods’ long career before presenting the medal. “Tiger Woods is a global symbol of American excellence, devotion and drive.”

The iconic golfer received the presidential honor following his win of the 2019 Masters tournament in April. Trump said he congratulated Woods by phone after his Masters victory and that he’d present him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in a tweet last month.

In a short speech after receiving the medal, an emotional Woods thanked his family for their support and described his happiness at his recent wins.

“The amazing Masters experience I just had a few weeks ago certainly is part of the highlights of what I’ve accomplished so far in my life on the golf course,” he said.

Trump and Woods have a relationship that goes back several years. Trump said in 2014 that Woods was set to design a golf course in Dubai as part of a Trump Organization project, The New York Times reports. And Woods has supported Trump by appearing alongside him at the opening of the Tiger Woods Villa at the Trump National Doral Miami in 2014.

Their friendship also extends on to the golf course. Woods, who has played golf with other former Presidents, has played with Trump multiple times since the President took over office, including earlier this year and in November 2017.

On Twitter, the President has been consistently supportive of Woods. After Woods won the 2019 Masters, Trump lauded the golfer’s “fantastic life comeback.”

In a 2018 news conference after tying at the Northern Trust, Woods deflected questions about his relationship with Trump, saying “you have to respect the office,” and acknowledging that he’s known the President for years.

Joe Biden Hires Symone Sanders as His 2020 Presidential Campaign Strategist

Former Vice President Joe Biden has selected Symone Sanders to be a senior adviser to his 2020 presidential campaign, the AP is reporting.

Sanders was the former press secretary for Sen. Bernie Sanders (no relation) during the 2016 election when the Vermont senator ran as the Democrat nominee.

The 29-year-old is also a high-profile political analyst at CNN. She spoke at this year’s Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit.

In an interview with Black Enterprise, Sanders spoke about the value black women bring to the political arena.

“I think the political and democratic apparatus has woken up to see the real value of black women and now they are doing all kinds of things to hold on to it and bring black women into the fold and black women are like, ‘We just want you to hire us, give us resources, let us lead, and get out of our way,” she said.

As someone who is often on the forefront of heated conversations and debates, Sanders is known for her ability to stand her ground. Beyond her career, she says that there are two things that no one can go toe-to-toe with her on and they are Nebraska and Beyoncé.

“I’m from Nebraska and you can’t tell me nothing about Nebraska. I’m also a Beyoncé fan and you can’t tell me nothing about Beyoncé. I don’t care who you are, what setting we’re in, or where we are—if I’m in a meeting with a potential president of the United States, if we get on the topic of Nebraska and Beyoncé, I am going to feel very emboldened to speak up and push back and talk to you about that. So, black women, we need to feel the same way about Nebraska and Beyoncé as we do about all of these other things that we deal with in our workplace every single day.”

Stephen Colbert slams Trump’s new favorite term ‘presidential harassment’

TwitterFacebook

Donald Trump has ramped up his use of a new, favorite term and Stephen Colbert wasted no time calling bullshit.

The Late Show host noted Trump’s use of the catchphrase “presidential harassment” to describe investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“Presidential harassment: It’s like sexual harassment, only the Republicans take it seriously,” Colbert said around the five-minute mark of Thursday’s monologue.

Colbert also noted Trump’s recent tweet reiterating the term, in which the president wrote, “The Republicans never did this to President Obama.”

“Have you been huffing the Aqua Net?” said Colbert. “We were all alive then, none of us were in a coma. All they did was investigate him — the IRS, the ATF, the ACA, Solyndra, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. They didn’t subpoena his taxes, can you guess why? Hint: He released them.Read more…

Kamala Harris Bio: 3 Things You May Not Know About the Presidential Candidiate

After years of demurely dodging the “Will you run for president” question, Kamala Harris officially declared yes in Oakland, almost two weeks after the release of her memoir, The Truths We Hold (Penguin Random House; $ 30) and left little doubt that her campaign for president had begun.

Harris’s  meticulously planned Oaktown hometown announcement could have felt anticlimactic. To the contrary, it was breathtaking.

The weather was perfect after weeks of rain (an Oakland rarity). The bright sun on Harris’s smile, the swell of the crowds chanting her name and waving her “Kamala for the People” signs, her ease in their presence and in front of the camera, gave it the feel of a great victory speech at the end of a long race.

But this was just the beginning, and the next 22 months will be long and hard. She said it herself, invoking Robert Kennedy. “I do not lightly dismiss the dangers and difficulties of challenging an incumbent president, but these are not ordinary times, and this will not be an ordinary election.

If there was any doubt that Harris is no ordinary candidate, she stamped it out with real swagger when, for a brief moment, in a state where cannibas is legally flourishing, Harris gave her longtime support base a natural high.

For those who knew her less well, there were a few surprises that will no doubt shape how she and her historic run for the highest office in the land are viewed – and they had more to do with the personal forces that have shaped her than with the critical issues she will shape should she become president.

Kamala Harris Bio Facts 

Yes, she’s married. Yes, he’s white.

Douglas Emhoff, 54, is a Los Angeles lawyer and native New Yorker who Harris married five years ago. It’s her first marriage; his second. Harris writes in her memoir that his grown children, Cole and Ella, are named for John Coltrane and Ella Fitzgerald and that she bonded with them over a shared love of music right away.

Kamala Harris Bio

Harris with her husband (Wikipedia)

 

‘Ya mon,’ she’s half Jamaican.

No longer politically correct to simply reduce everyone to black or white, Harris is now most often referred to in the press as black and South Asian-American. A lesser known fact, which she addressed herself yesterday, is that her father, economist Donald Harris, was born and raised in St. Ann’s Bay, Jamaica. At about 1% of the population, courting the West Indian-American vote: Smart move.

Kamala Harris bio

(Facebook)

Yes, sir, that’s her sister chairing the campaign.

Maya Harris, Kamala’s younger sister, is chairing her presidential campaign. A Stanford educated lawyer whose resume includes the Ford Foundation, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and most recently, MSNBC as a political analyst, this will not be her first rodeo. She was a senior adviser for Hilary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

BEST DEAL UPDATE:

Will Kamala Continue to Elevate the 2020 Presidential Race?

When I moved from New York to Oakland, California, I had no idea I’d get to witness an historic moment take place in my own backyard just a year later. But as Kamala Harris officially declared her 2020 presidential run yesterday, 47 years after Shirley Chisolm became the first black woman to do so, my crusty political cynicism turned to mush.

After two years of demurely dodging the “Will you run” question, Harris’s final answer was the culmination of a highly strategic rollout to “Yes!” that began with the release of not one, but two books punctuated by a news-grabbing announcement on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Her return to “Oaktown” on a warm, bright Sunday, could easily have been anticlimactic. Especially since, when the hometown heroine took the stage, its not as if she was about to tell us anything we didn’t already know: That she is a smart, savvy, and accomplished prosecutor turned politician, and as Al Sharpton put it on MSNBC just before her speech, “she knows how to be aggressive with grace,” in a race in which he added, “you need to be both.”

That is if you’re a woman. Men, including the current president, have prevailed in spite of being distinctly graceless.

Exuding confidence and joy while surrounded by a massive crowd of cheering supporters, Harris was clearly moved by the outpouring. “I love my country,” she said, “and I feel a responsibility to stand up for the best of who we are.”

It was a lofty note to begin on, and for more than 30 minutes she kept to the high road, captivating onlookers as she offered much of what’s been sorely lacking in political leadership since the Obama era ended in 2016. I’m not referring to a credible command of minute facts or discernment regarding complex diplomatic issues (although these would be nice to get back in the White House, too).

I’m talking about things that should be a given in our public discourse but are not: Eloquence, thoughtfulness, intelligence, hope.

Answering Donald Trump’s coded and deeply divisive “make America great again” messaging with a resounding “That’s not our America,” Harris pulled no punches in establishing her desire to “reclaim the American dream and restore America’s moral leadership on this planet.”

Harris quoted Frederick Douglas, referenced Harriet Tubman, and invoked her own late mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris. She also mentioned her only sibing, Maya Harris, a senior strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, who is now chair of the Harris campaign.

Both highly accomplished lawyers and very close — they are a formidable pair. Of course, it will take a lot more than sister-girl magic and the powerful democratic block of black women voters to get Harris to the White House.

She openly acknowledged the challenges ahead, calling out the skepticism of even some supporters who fret the odds are against her, or that at 54 (seven years older than Barack Obama when he was elected, and more than a decade older than JFK was), she may be too young, or not quite ready.

“The doubters will say, it can’t be done,” Harris conceded, before quoting Robert Kennedy: “But America’s story has always been written by people who see what can be, unburdened by what has been.”

It was a good speech and a thrilling moment, especially for those who – like me – admire her.  As I watched Harris and her family wave goodbye to the crowd, I found myself wondering — what now?

Known for being whip-smart and nimble with a proven record as a coalition builder and fundraiser (breaking records in recent weeks), she was clearly ready for this moment, and seems prepared for what the next 22 months will bring.

But can she keep to the high road even as lowbrow Trump and what may be the largest number of candidates ever, scrambles for top billing in the race?

One of the more compelling statements in her speech for me went not to her stand on the issues, but to who she is as a person and will be as a candidate.

“I am not perfect,” she allowed, “but I will always speak with decency and moral clarity, and I will treat all people with dignity and respect.”

The 2016 campaign for president was arguably the most distasteful and disgraceful in American political history. We are desperately in need of candidates who elevate this race. And maybe, just maybe, the person who is most successful at doing that will win. If so, Harris has as good a shot as anyone, and a better shot than most.

Democrats Say Possible Howard Schultz Presidential Bid Could Help Trump Win Second Term

A number of top Democrats say President Donald Trump could win a second term if former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz runs for president.

Schultz said he is considering a bid for the 2020 presidential election as an independent during an interview that airs during this Sunday’s 60 minutes.

Democrat Juli?n Castro, who was the Obama administration’s secretary of Housing and Urban Development and recently announced his own bid for the race, spoke out against a possible Schultz run during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

“I have a concern that if he did run, that essentially, it would provide Donald Trump with his best hope of getting re-elected,” Castro said on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday.

Schultz, a Democrat himself, sees his possible run as a way to break from party-oriented politics, according to The Atlantic. He has already spent the past year hiring consultants, The Atlantic reports.

“We’re living at a most-fragile time,” Schultz told CBS’s Scott Pelley. “Not only the fact that this president is not qualified to be the president, but the fact that both parties are consistently not doing what’s necessary on behalf of the American people and are engaged, every single day, in revenge politics.”

Although 57% of American voters now disapprove of Trump’s job, Castro added that the President’s support is about 42% no matter which Democrat ultimately runs against him. If an independent party were to appeal to enough undecided voters, Trump could win the 2020 race.

Other Democrats that have spoken out against the prospect include former Obama senior adviser David Axelrod, Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii, and even the Democratic Party of Washington State, the HuffPost reports.

“I would suggest to Mr. Schultz to truly think about the negative impact that that might make,” Castro said.

Sources: Kamala Harris Will Launch A Presidential Campaign Around MLK Jr. Day

Sen. Kamala Harris may officially announce her bid for the White House sometime during MLK weekend, according to inside sources who spoke to KCBS Radio in her home state of California.

Speculation that the Democratic senator will make a run for president next year escalated when she launched a book tour promoting her new memoir, The Truths We Hold: An American Journey, which published Tuesday. When questioned about the 2020 race on her tour, Harris has repeatedly said that she is not ready to announce her decision yet. However, several sources with knowledge of her plans say she and her family are indeed ready for a run.

Sources also say that the 54-year-old freshman senator is still debating on how and where to kick off a presidential campaign. KCBS reports that “the tentative plan is for Harris to enter the race for the Democratic presidential nomination with a campaign rally, most likely in Oakland, where she was born and began her legal career.” However, a spokesperson for Harris told The Hill, that no announcement is imminent and Harris will not be in Oakland during the holiday weekend.

Nonetheless, Harris told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Wednesday that she will make a final decision about 2020 soon and that she truly believes the nation is ready for a woman of color to be president.

“We have to give the American people more credit, and we have to understand that the American public and the people of our country are smart people who will make decisions about who will be their leader based on who they believe is capable, who they believe has an honest desire to lead, to represent, to see them, to be a voice for them even if they have no power,” she said.

Harris made history in 2017 when she became the second African American woman to be sworn into Congress as a U.S. Senator. Altogether, a total of just 10 African Americans have ever served in the U.S. Senate, including former President Barack Obama and Sen. Cory Booker.

If Harris jumps into the 2020 race, she would likely join Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who recently announced an exploratory committee for a presidential bid. Other potential high-profile Democratic candidates include Sen. Booker, Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas).

Obama mentioned reading the book on “60 Minutes” in 2009, setting off an Oprah-level book frenzy.

Psychology

Obama’s pick: “Thinking, Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman
Obama awarded this psychologist who also won the Nobel Prize for economics with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2013.

Trump’s pick: “Mad Politics: Keeping Your Sanity in a World Gone Crazy” by Gina Loudon

Saturday Night Live Shows the Dark Side of the New Presidential Alert System

Last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live mocked the new Presidential cell phone alert system, which was used across the country for the first time on Wednesday.

Though last Wednesday’s alert was only a test, the SNL sketch portrayed some of the worst fears about the way that President Trump could use the system, and offered some alternative alerts that could come to American phones.

“Failing New York Times says I cheated on taxes. Duh! It’s called being smart,” read one alert in the sketch.

The sketch played on many Americans’ skepticism that President Trump will only use the alert system in emergency situations, despite the fact that there is a law forbidding it.

“Warning: White men are under attack,” read one fake alert.
