Kamala Harris has made a very, very interesting choice for her new Communications Director in Jamal Simmons. It would seem that Mr. Simmons has in the past been extremely, even scathingly critical of not only Joe Biden calling him “Dazed & Confused”, but also of the vaccine he’s tasked to push! Simmons is set to replace Ashley Etienne who departed during the December mass exodus from the struggling office of the Vice President.
Jamal is no stranger to the political scene and was a pundit of some reputation as recently as 2019 when he hosted “Why You Should Care” for TheHill. It was a segment of that show that has caught the attention of many from Fox News to The Federalist, the segment was called “Dazed & Confused” and centered around the astonishing number of baffling, incoherent, inconsistent, and (being generous) “exaggerated” stories told by the former VP.
“We do this story about once a week!” Simmons told his audience.
Now being a left-leaning host, Simmons definitely played softball with apologist tripe covering up the clear mental decline Biden was already experiencing in 2019 with lines like: “it’s what you get with Uncle Joe” and asking “Is it worth putting up with Biden’s gaffes to get the good stuff? The human connection? The years of service? The steady hand?” Clearly, he spent as much time painting over the ugly parts as any Biden staffer, possibly hoping to diffuse the genuine concerns over the man’s capacity to function with deprecating humor. But it still seems out of character for the regime to take on ANYONE who has EVER been truly critical of Joe… with the exception of Harris herself that is. And perhaps that’s where the difference lay.
More Inconvenient Takes From Kamala’s ‘Dazed ‘ Comms Director
According to Fox News, while the Biden-Harris regime is so painfully pro-COVID19 vaccine and throwing their political force hard behind authoritarian mandates bringing Simmons aboard presents a whole new set of issues. It would seem that the initial hesitancy to endorse the “janky science vaccine” is something that Harris and Simmons shared. We’ll take ‘tweets that didn’t age well’ for $1000, Alex.
He tweeted, “Trump’s fatally ill-managed Coronavirus response seems to have turned voters off to him the way Katrina destroyed Bush’s political reputation, but pushing a janky science vaccine into the public for political purposes would turn incompetent culpability into intentional harm.” Conservatives on the platform have been letting him have it for days now as of this writing and the comments are gold. Don’t expect the tweet to stay up long though.

Simmons is already on damage control, potentially concerned that his credibility issues will cost him his recent appointment. He responded Jan. 7th posting, “As a pundit for much of my career I have tweeted a lot and spoken out on public issues. Sometimes I have been sarcastic, unclear, or just plainly missed the mark. I sincerely apologize for offending those who care as much as I do about making America the best, multi-ethnic, diverse democracy it can be. I know the role I am taking on is to represent the Biden-Harris administration, and I will do so with humility, sincerity and respect.”
It remains to be seen if he’ll be able to salvage his image sufficiently to stay in Harris’ employ, and if so, if he will further drag down Harris’ team, already in a state of disarray.
