“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
Kamala Harris is in the worst danger of her political career, and she may not even know it — but the Democratic Party does… and they’re absolutely panicked over it.
Some of the most important operatives, deal-makers, and palm-greasers in the Democratic Party held a private dinner to figure out how to save her political career.

They said the problem is obvious: Nobody likes Kamala Harris.
Poll after poll shows that Harris’ approval rating is “underwater”: More people disapprove of the job Harris has done as vice president than approve of it.
At the beginning of the year, her unfavorable rating was 18 percent. Today, it’s 46 percent, according to Real Clear Politics.
“The dinner had an urgent purpose,” according to Axios. “Harris had been hit with a series of damaging press accounts, with leaks from administration officials questioning her political judgment and describing rampant dysfunction in her office.”
It’s not hard to imagine why: She’s not known for much among most voters except taking on fighting illegal immigration — and failing spectacularly. She lied to NBC Nightly News host Lester Holt that she had already been to the border, then cackled something random about Europe. Meanwhile, a record-breaking number of illegal aliens came across the southern border last month.
Black voters, who should be her strength, know that as California Attorney General she jailed blacks for marijuana violations — and then bragged about how she toked up on marijuana during college.

And her former staffers say her office is a nightmare to work in—“an abusive environment” filled with “short fuses,” according to Politico.
Kamala’s high unfavorability numbers spell big trouble for the entire Democratic Party.
Everyone knows Kamala is one, 78-year-old Joe Biden heartbeat away from becoming president of the United States — and the leader of the Democratic Party. She’s basically the de facto president.
A majority of Americans told pollsters they don’t expect Joe Biden to run for re-election in 2024. But then, they knew that going in. Prior to the 2020 election, 59 percent of Americans said that, if Joe Biden got elected, they didn’t believe he would finish his first term in office, according to a Rasmussen poll.
So, if they don’t turn those numbers around soon, the DNC will lose the White House again, and as far as they’re concerned, that must never happen. Their cushy jobs as advisors and consultants depend on it.
So, they called in the well-paid consultants and talking heads to figure out what message will make Kamala Harris likable.
It’s a tall order.
They met in the house of Kiki McLean, who is considered an expert in public affairs and advised both Bill and Hillary Clinton.
She called in just about every woman who’s operated at a high level behind the scenes of Democratic politics. According to Axios, the guest list included “two former DNC officials, Donna Brazile and Leah Daughtry; Biden adviser and leader of his outside group, Stephanie Cutter; former Hillary Clinton spokeswomen and Democratic strategists Adrienne Elrod and Karen Finney; and former Obama White House communications director Jennifer Palmieri.”
Imagine that: The people who worked for Hillary Clinton advising someone on how to be more likable.
For the record, Kamala Harris’ office had nothing to do with the dinner — but she sent her best friend, Minyon Moore.
So, DNC “operatives spent the dinner discussing how to fight back against negative perceptions, and how to help Harris boost her national media footing.”

They think they’ve hit on just the right thing: They’ll say anyone who doesn’t like Kamala Harris is sexist.
Media coverage of Kamala Harris have “sexist overtones,” the women allegedly told Axios. And they’re going to “make sure the press knows this.”
They’ve decided Kamala Harris is unlikable, and they can’t make her palatable to Americans. So they’re going to browbeat their friends in the media to make it too painful for anyone to speak out against her as a woman-hater.
That’s just what they tried with Hillary Clinton.
And you can see how that worked for her two presidential campaigns…
In fact, the message is already failing.
“Sexism is the new straw man argument being used by team Kamala to cover for her poor performance as vice president,” former Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News.

The strategists can’t thank anybody but themselves for this.
They decided to go all-in on Joe Biden, to smuggle their far-Left agenda behind his friendly face.
Joe Biden went all-in on diversity, saying he’d chosen his vice president on the basis of skin color and sex, not competence. He promised to name a “woman of color” as his running mate — and that basically only left Kamala Harris.
Now, it turns out they’re both grumpy, entitled elitists, and the American people aren’t lining up behind them.
Democratic consultants don’t know much, but they know about how to work the system.
They see Kamala Harris could pull the entire tent down.
