Kamala Campaign Mocked For Tweeting Bizarrely Terrible Photoshop

October 17, 2019

The Kamala Harris campaign baffled the Twitterverse Thursday by posting a photoshopped image showing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi yelling at a hypothetical President Harris.

A day earlier, President Donald Trump tweeted out a picture of a meeting with congressional Democrats that showed Pelosi standing up and pointing her finger at Trump. The president wrote that it showed "Nervous Nancy's unhinged meltdown!"

Several liberals adopted the image as an example of Pelosi's fortitude, including Pelosi herself, who made the image her Twitter cover photo. The Harris campaign attempted to get into the game by replacing Trump's image with that of the California senator. "Time for an upgrade," tweeted Harris national press secretary Ian Sams.

Sams's tweet was promptly mocked by the entire political spectrum not only for the poor quality of the photoshop, but for the unintended implication that Harris would clash with Pelosi as president and retain Trump's cabinet.

Sams was apparently not happy with the response. He attributed the mockery to conservatives, ignoring the image's implications and quality. He later deleted the tweet with the photoshopped image.

Sams's tweet and moody response came the day after a Harris staffer complained to Buzzfeed management about a reporter's mild criticism of Harris's debate performance, calling it "whiteness manifest."

"Do you seriously not have real problems?" Buzzfeed editor in chief Ben Smith said in response. "This text makes me think you are totally, totally unready for an actual presidential campaign."
