    I’ve Been Asked to be Kamala Harris’s Speech Writer! (The Saad Truth with Dr. Saad_437)

    I’ve Been Asked to be Kamala Harris’s Speech Writer! (The Saad Truth with Dr. Saad_437)

    I'm so excited to be joining Kamala Harris's team! We may have not seen eye to eye in the past but I truly think that I can add value to her wonderful team.

    You may wish to view the clip on my YouTube channel in order to capture the manner by which I've channeled Harris as I mimic her delivery.

    Note: To the slow folks in the back row, yes this is obviously a satirical clip (albeit it undoubtedly understates how utterly incoherent and vacuous Harris truly is). I hate that I felt compelled to provide this disclaimer but I wanted to preempt the imbeciles who might otherwise process this clip as the literal truth. Experience has taught me to never underestimate some people's idiocy and utter humorless nature.

Ochewbac ,

Vermonters are with You!

Yep. Right here in Burlington, VT there are thousands who agree with you. Thank you for sharing the courage episode and message you received. Indeed! Let us stand strong. Let us stand above being “liked”-in every sense of the word. We are with you! Those of us with the compulsion to be free spirits will lead this world back to the light of what is real, not contrived.

A Woman who still thinks it matters

Thank you for your attention to the very consequential matter of a female Supreme Court Justice nominee, sure to sit on the highest court in the U.S. in the very near future, who is unwilling to define what a women is. As a woman I am horrified at what has been unfolding in the U.S.,, and in society at large, with regard to basic truth and language. I too considered myself socially liberal, but when basic language and truth is off limits at the highest levels in society to the point where a Harvard Educated jurist, a woman herself, refuses to define what a women is, claiming a lack of expertise to do so, well, God help us all! I can’t be sure if he will though, I’m not a theologian.
