Kamala Harris flubbed a recent interview and the backlash has been swift and fierce and again shows the VP as not ready for primetime. In this case, Harris was accused of insulting rural voters, a voting block the Dems already have trouble reaching.

Harris said: “I don’t think that we should underestimate what that could mean. Because in some people’s minds, that means well, you’re going to have to Xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove you are who you are. Well, there are a whole lot of people, especially people who live in rural communities, who don’t there’s no Kinkos, there’s no OfficeMax near them.

“People have to understand when we’re talking about voter ID laws, be clear about who you have in mind and what would be required of them to prove who they are. Of course, people have to prove who they are, but not in a way that makes it almost impossible for them to prove who they are.”

Enter Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume who said:

“They’re trying to label Republicans as people who want to suppress the vote. But a number of the things that the Republicans want to do in the laws they are passing across the country are things that are popular — and voter I.D. Is very high on that list.

“I think it’s politically really stupid to come out and criticize voter I.D.

“She seems at times lighter than air.”

PR and comms specialist Chris Barron spoke for many when he said:

“Hi, I live on top of a mountain on the WV/VA border and I can photocopy my ID. I mean I do it while moonshining White Lightning while dueling banjos play in the background but I can still do it.”

“I live in a rural community and I am perfectly capable of operating a copying machine, Kamala,” Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) tweeted

“Cause, you know, country folks don’t have electricity, much less access to copiers or smart phones,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said.

“They’re too busy running moonshine & sliding on the hoods of their cars,” he added.
