Biden’s ‘disinformation czar’

Biden’s ‘disinformation czar’. By the New York Post Editorial Board.

Insane as it is that the Department of Homeland Security has created a Disinformation Governance Board, it’s utter madness that the woman running it is Nina Jankowicz, who’s a veteran disinfo spreader.

She embraced and promoted the bogus Clinton-campaign-created Trump-Russia dossier. And she waged war on The Post’s true and accurate reporting of Hunter Biden’s laptop. …

Look: She’s a career left-wing partisan, from her days working at the National Democratic Institute to her Fulbright-Clinton fellowship to her gig at the left-leaning Wilson Center where she routinely did media hits with NPR, CNN, PBS and so on while placing New York Times and Washington Post opeds. Hiring her for this job just shows how detached from reality and broad American society the entire Biden team has become.

 

John Hinderaker:

She has been ridiculed on other grounds as well. For example, this performance, where she yearns to be “rich, famous and powerful.”

A particularly striking lyric by Ms. Jankowicz goes, “Who do I f***” to be “famous and powerful?” This was, in a way, prescient. Jankowicz has gone on the warpath against those who dare to criticize Kamala Harris. Denouncing those who have mocked Harris on social media, Jankowicz wrote:

There is much worse, alleging that Vice-President Harris slept her way to the top.

But that statement is true. It is not disputed that Harris was for years the very public illicit mistress of Willie Brown, California’s most powerful politician. Nor is it disputed that Brown greased Harris’s path as she rose in California politics, to the point where she became a U.S. senator without ever being seriously tested. This is why Harris ascended all the way to the vice presidency before it was widely noticed that she possesses no perceptible political skills.

Willie Brown, who knows his protege much better than the rest of us, publicly advised her not to accept the vice presidential nod. Given Joe Biden’s decrepitude, there is a fair chance that Kamala Harris will be President of the United States. Our country, and frankly the Democratic Party, would be better off if her qualifications had been more openly debated. But that is the sort of conversation that the Biden administration and its press and social media allies want to foreclose.

The founders of the US Constitution are rolling over in their graves.
