After a wait that felt like years, a lot of anxiety, and a serious amount of stress, Democratic frontrunner and former right-hand man to Barack Obama, Joe Biden, finally announced his pick for his own right-hand and Vice President. And to say that we’re thrilled would be an understatement.

Earlier this afternoon, Biden officially announced that United States Senator and former 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris will serve as his running mate in their 2020 ticket for president, to unseat Donald Trump, end his reign of terror on this nation, and help this nation heal from one of its biggest disasters to date.

To say the least, Donald Trump is not a happy camper in the wake of Biden’s decision.

In fact, it took less than an hour for him to take to his beloved Twitter account with a disgusting attack ad against Harris, calling her “Phony.”

But, like most every other scenario when it comes to Donald Trump, it seems as though Donnie didn’t clear out his own closet before attempting to attack someone else.

According to a bombshell resurfaced report from The Sacramento Bee, Donald was once far more fond of Senator Harris than he seems to be now.

So much so, actually, that he and his eldest daughter Ivanka actually DONATED to Kamala’s campaign for California Attorney General, in 2011 as well as 2013.

The Bee’s report reads:

In 2011 and again in 2013, Trump donated a total of $6,000 to Harris’ campaign for California attorney general. His daughter, Ivanka, also gave Harris $2,000 in 2014.

The first donation from Trump, for $5,000 in September 2011, came months after he had begun popping up on cable news promoting a conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya, not the United States, something that’s been widely condemned as racist.

Harris campaign spokesman Ian Sams told McClatchy that Harris donated the $6,000 Trump had contributed to a non-profit that advocates for civil and human rights for Central Americans. But that donation wasn’t made until 2015, a year after she won her reelection for attorney general and as she was launching her run for the Senate.

This is along the same vein of “there’s always a tweet.” I really have to wonder if a single soul is vetting that guy’s garbage at this point. Because this is getting embarrassing, Donnie boy.
