Racism and misogyny [View all]

I've thought long and hard on this. Done a decent amount of digging through the Internet.
I see no other reasonable conclusion than this:
The constant, relentless and boorish ageism being leveled against the president is, in part or whole in some circles, due to racism and misogyny with respect to his VP.
Vice President Kamala Harris is more than qualified for the job and obviously has the trust of the president.

The attacks, their tone and the urgency they are delivered with, does little to hide the animosity and complete lack of confidence some have towards the VP's ability to fill the role should it be required.

Full disclosure, I campaigned for the VP in the primaries and would campaign for her again if she runs in the future and believe she is the best candidate for the position in 2028.
