On Tuesday, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel claimed racism and sexism are at least part of the reason Vice President Kamala Harris’ has such a low approval rating.
Kimmel pointed out at the beginning of his show that Harris has an approval rating of 28%, which makes no sense to him “because she basically has nothing to do”.
“I mean, it’s like criticizing a backup quarterback. Tom Brady, he’s OK. I don’t love the way Blaine Gabbert has his legs folded on the bench, I have to be honest,” he joked.
He then mentioned that Harris’ ratings are lower than that of former Vice President Dick Cheney in 2008 after he accidentally shot someone while hunting.
Kimmel claimed “I think I know why Kamala’s rating are low, besides sexism and racism, which are the obvious ones”. “It’s because whenever she’s next to Joe Biden, standing near or behind him, she looks like an assassin,” he added.
He did not give any other examples for why he thought her ratings were as low as they are.
Harris’ ratings are the lowest of any vice president in history. President Joe Biden received a 38% approval and 59% disapproval.
