Black lesbian political powerhouse announced as Kamala Harris's chief of staff

When a man jumped on stage during the presidential debates and stole Harris' microphone last year, Karine Jean-Pierre took care of the business.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign has assigned an out woman to be chief of staff to his running mate, putting a lesbian in one of the campaign’s most senior positions.

Shortly before announcing that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) would be his running mate in the 2020 general election, the Biden campaign announced that senior campaign advisor Karine Jean-Pierre would be the vice-presidential candidate’s chief of staff. Jean-Pierre is the first Black person to serve as chief of staff to a vice-presidential candidate.

Jean-Pierre confirmed the appointment on Twitter, calling herself “ambitious,” a reference to how the term is often negatively applied to women with careers in politics but not to men in the same way.

3. Between this, and Kamala's Jewish husband, the Repugs are going NUTS

I don't think there's ever been such an unhinged reaction, from the opposite camp of either party, against a contender for Second Spouse, as we've seen against Doug Emhoff.

I hope and trust the Secret Service is being extra watchful for Doug and Kamala.
