    The jury is still out as to whether that (was) AOC’s burner account. Now that the account has been deleted, we’ll never know for sure.

    Kamala Harris Gets SMACKED DOWN During Visit To Africa

    The Jimmy Dore Show
    1.17M subscribers

    The United States’ position in the world has been in a steep decline of late as numerous influential nations seek to decouple themselves from the US-centered international order. In an effort to stem this tide of eroding influence. African countries have particularly been embracing China and Russia, which is why Vice President Kamala Harris was dispatched to the dark continent in an effort to shore up relationships. It didn’t go so well.

    Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss whether Kamala Harris is the kind of person who should be sent on any sort of “charm” offensive.
