New York: Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan was vilified on social media for critical comments about Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.
In between analyzing the second debate between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, Noonan pointed to Senator Harris’s “giddy” nature on the campaign trail. She was critical of her behavior, writing she comes off as “insubstantial” and “frivolous.” Dancing by the Senator, Noonan added, was “embarrassing.”
Noonan was particularly referring to the Indian American Senator’s impromptu dance last Monday at a campaign event in Jacksonville, FL, when it started raining.
And Noonan had it on social media. She is condemning Harris because white supremacy means that black women such as the senator should be “quiet, subservient and obedient,” one person wrote. Pointing to a video showing President Trump himself awkwardly dancing on stage at a recent rally, another commentator wondered why that wasn’t also “insubstantial” and “frivolous.”
Most of the comments about the article itself were equally damning, with Noonan described as “a feckless tool.” Another questioned the point of the 1,200-word piece, noting that while Harris was dancing on the campaign trail, the president was dancing on people’s graves during the pandemic.Read More
