Biden demolished the misogynistic memes and condescending statements circulating about her “ambition.” Yes, an ambitious, powerful woman is just the sort of person Biden wants to associate with.https://t.co/KgXiN86Lz8

You know, whatever else you think of Kamala Harris, it’s pretty amazing and awesome that immigrants can come to the U.S., meet, marry, have a child, and their daughter can grow up to be DA, state attorney general, U.S. Senator, and on a presidential ticket. pic.twitter.com/cTRW8c0tyf

Kamala Harris will be the first person from a West Coast state to hold a spot on a Democratic ticket. First person from any state west of the Rockies, even.

They can run, but they can't hide. #Pence should probably try to hide, though.

I know this is too much to ask from a head and heart perspective, but the smart and savvy and humane move for the White House and GOP would be to welcome Harris to the race, congratulate historic pick, and save the attacks for a day or so later.

Boris Johnson avoids having cobra meetings with Nicola Sturgeon, is refusing to visit her at Bute House and has now rejected cabinet proposal by Michael Gove. Odd approach by UK government to counter growing support for Scottish independence. https://t.co/qN0SkAbc0i

Let us build on the growing majority support in favour of Scotland becoming an independent country. The increasing momentum will determine that Scotland will not be denied the right to choose its own future. Even @BorisJohnson knows this, it is inevitable. https://t.co/ABRsturluf

Everything about these people repulses me. They are vindictive, stupid, racist, reactionary, vulgar, wantonly ill-educated, bitter & naff.
The question I would ask them is “what difference do these migrants coming here personally make to your life?”.
