The Trump campaign is clearly stuck on what attack to lob against Joe Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, who was announced as the candidate on Tuesday. Sometimes, they say she’s a Marxist, a radical left-wing authoritarian. Other times, they warn left-wing voters that she’s not nearly liberal enough for them. What’s true is that she’s a strong candidate and is most likely about to make mincemeat of Vice President Mike Pence.

We’ll start with the misinformation. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) never said that she wanted to personally take meat away from Americans. She said during a town hall that she thought the dietary guidelines should be changed, just as they have been in many other countries, to include smaller amounts of meat.
There is no law that enforces dietary guidelines on Americans.
Even better, though, the ridiculous little insult was more of a self-own than a dig at Harris. During his little speech, Pence said:
‘Sen. Kamala Harris said she would change the dietary guidelines of this country to reduce the amount of red meat that Americans can eat. Well I’ve got some red meat for you: We’re not going to let Joe Biden & Kamala Harris cut America’s meat!’
No one wants Pence’s red meat, not in any sense of the phrase. But warning Harris not to cut Americans meat is the funniest thing from the Trump campaign so far.
Twitter was more than a little amused by Pence’s attempt to insult Harris. Read some of their comments below:
