Team Biden is now vetting Representative Karen Bass, the current chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, to be considered as his running mate, based on a report from CBS News.
Bass is a five-term congresswoman in the Los Angeles district, who endorsed Biden in March.
“Karen Bass would be a big plus…she is a great person in my mind, I work with her every day,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn told CNN in June when asked about Biden’s vetting process.
Not too long ago, Bass described calls for defunding the police as a terrible rallying cry, and “probably one of the worst slogans ever,” however she said law enforcement officers shouldn’t become involved in situations that could be dealt with better by social workers.
Yeah, because social workers are known for pulling wife beaters off their victims and fighting swinging mothers who they’re taking their children away from.
“I told some friends that’s probably one of the worst slogans ever,” Bass said during a Washington Post live broadcast referring to the slogan.
Following her line of thought, she also said police budgets could be reduced if communities move some of their work over to other agencies.
Now that is probably one of the worst things I’ve ever heard.
Do Democrats not understand that while they are placating a very small minority of crazy people in their party, they are appeasing them by approving of policies that would cause real harm to the majority of their constituents?
This new vetting comes at a time when Biden is facing pressure to pick a woman of color for the number two slot on the national ticket.
Last week, Minnesota senator Amy Klobuchar withdrew her from the list of possible running mates, saying that Biden should use the moment to “put a woman of color” on his ticket. That’s about as lame as Barack Obama endorsing Biden when he was the only one left running.
