Kamala Harris’ ex-lover Willie Brown suggests Hillary run again

Kamala Harris’ ex-lover Willie Brown suggests Hillary run again

Brown: “Call me crazy, but from what I’ve seen so far, Clinton is the only candidate short of Barack Obama who has the brains, the battle-tested brawn and the national presence to take out Trump.”

Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown (D) has been open about his past romantic relationship with current Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

He’s apparently not a fan, however, as he’s published an article in which he calls for twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to run against President Trump in 2020.

Back in February, Brown penned a piece for the San Francisco Chronicle about his relationship with Harris and about his helping her politically.

USA Today reported at the time:

Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown addressed his past relationship with Sen. Kamala Harris in a letter to the San Francisco Chronicle on Saturday and acknowledged giving her appointments that furthered her career.

“Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago,” wrote Brown, who said he had “been peppered with calls from the national media about my ‘relationship’ with Kamala Harris, particularly since it became obvious that she was going to run for president.”

Harris’ office did not immediately respond to USA TODAY’s request for comment on Brown’s letter to the Chronicle.

Brown was married at the time he and Harris dated, but – because he had been “estranged from his wife” Blanche Brown since 1981, according to People magazine –the relationship was not kept secret. A Sacramento Bee reporter told People that Brown “had a succession of girlfriends” and would “go to a party with his wife on one arm and his girlfriend on the other.”

. . . .  “Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker,” Brown wrote Saturday.  Brown was the speaker from 1980 to 1995, prior to his stint as San Francisco mayor.

Brown appointed Harris to the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board and then to the Medical Assistance Commission – positions that paid her more than $400,000 over five years, according to SF Weekly. Brown also gave Harris a BMW.

“And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco,” he said in his Chronicle letter Saturday.

Fast forward to Saturday, and Brown has decided that Hillary, who is not even in the race, is the best person to take on President Trump next year.

In his latest San Francisco Chronicle piece entitled “Who should run against Trump? How about Hillary Clinton?,” Brown writes:

It’s time for Hillary Clinton to come out of retirement, lace up the gloves and get back in the ring with President Trump for what would be the biggest political rematch ever.

Call me crazy, but from what I’ve seen so far, Clinton is the only candidate short of Barack Obama who has the brains, the battle-tested brawn and the national presence to take out Trump. And Obama can’t run.

Bernie Sanders was fading even before his heart started acting up. Joe Biden has become Trump’s main talking point in the whole Ukraine-China impeachment mess, which hardly helps him. And he wasn’t exactly running away with it before that.

Elizabeth Warren has a following, but it’s not that much broader than Sanders’. If he drops out, she might pick up some of his votes. But there’s the big question of whether she appeals to anyone besides the furthest left element of the Democratic Party.

Having decided none of the current frontrunners have what it takes, Brown skips over the rest of the field and pitches Hillary as “the smartest of the bunch,” tough in that “she can take a punch,” and “loose.”

Think about it. Hillary is still the smartest of the bunch. She’s also better known than any of the candidates, so she doesn’t need a lot of money.

Most of all, she can take a punch. Heck, she can take a 2-by-4 over the head and stay standing.

Clinton beat Trump by nearly 3 million votes nationally in 2016, but of course lost the Electoral College. That’s not bad for one of the worst-run campaigns ever. You’ve got to think she and the party learned something.

She sure seems loose. Clinton has been making the media rounds to promote the book she wrote with her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, “The Book of Gutsy Women.” She’s come off as funny, smart and natural.

Funny, smart, and natural?  One out of three isn’t bad, I guess.

Oh please oh please oh please….

    I didn’t realize Willie hates Hillary that much. With her fragile health, this could kill her.

      I’m looking for a downside…..

      beagleEar in reply to Pasadena Phil. | October 6, 2019 at 4:57 pm

      If she dies on the campaign trail, that would make her a hero to the public, rather than the truth, a narcissist who desires power more than life. It would also remove the slim possibility that she’ll ever be prosecuted. Between complicity and stupidity, the Republican apparatus has no desire to do it. It’s not impossible, but won’t happen without strong, STRONG public pressure.

      artichoke in reply to Pasadena Phil. | October 7, 2019 at 4:03 pm

      Her health is fine, this is Replacement Hillary who did all 3 debates with Trump: younger, skinnier and shorter than the original. Had to wear heels to have nearly the height of the original in flats. Original’s probably dead from deep venous thrombosis in brain. New one had none of those problems.

      I think Brown’s right, this is the strategic move. Can they slide her in though? Warren won’t step aside, supposedly she’s already been “aaked”.

There are actual Democrats back in the pack but they will never swim to the top of the cesspool.

Quid pro-Joe was a throwaway candidate. The Witch will come in when the left clamor enough. SHe wants to look like the second coming to be swept into office, not run for office.

    I remember in 2008 she didn’t want the votes counted so the DNC nominated BO “by acclamation”

    Perhaps she’s looking for some kind of public acclamation before jumping in?

    Honestly I’d rather see Warren the nominee than Hillary – the way the NYT editorial staff wept over their failure to secure the win for Hillary I suspect they’d bark and the moon for Hillary this time around.

    Wonder if she’d do Scooby two? Or is that Scooby three now?

    Hillary has been appointed to every position she has ever held and has been a monumental mediocrity at every one with the notable exception of the Democrat’s candidate in the 2016 presidential election…where she was the loser. She is a congenital self promoter who has spent a lifetime issuing meaningless proclamations and opinions from the sidelines, making it known how wonderful she is, one who could make time to “serve” if really wanted and, coincidentally, just happens to be available at the moment. Granted, she won her seat as NY’s senator, but there ran as the Democratic incumbent (a virtual gimme) having been appointed to the vacant seat by Democratic Governor David Patterson and running against the deplorable NYGOP’s sacrifice of the year – not exactly a tall order.

    The current slate of Democratic possibles ranges from soviets and ancients, through the positively dreadful, past the hapless, down to the outright comical; adding Clinton to it would drag it down farther. Like Joe Biden her background is full of shadowy people and questionable roles in murky events; the key to her high profile family’s ‘success’ has been entitlement; and she has been on every side of every issue for the past forty years. What’s not to like?

    artichoke in reply to 2smartforlibs. | October 7, 2019 at 4:04 pm

    They were going with him until Ukraine came out. CNN was in the tank for him since Debate 1.

just like she did in 2016, right?

BTW: Barr better start announcing indictments, with a trail leading right back to Shrillery, ASPA.

that will take the wind out of her sails…

    beagleEar in reply to redc1c4. | October 6, 2019 at 4:59 pm

    Does he really want to imprison his old pals from way back? Look at him, the only thing he’s on fire for is to be first in line for BBQ buffet time.

Heck, she can take a 2-by-4 over the head and stay standing.

I imagine the alcohol helps.

But Hillary ain’t exactly standing. She’s been whining for two years now. She’s not a fighter, she’s a nag and—even worse—a bore.

Wow. Willie threw Kamala under the bus.

I would L-O-V-E to see Hillary run again.

Willie is still a friend to Kamala. He knows Hillary wants this run, and if Kamala does not run against Trump, she will be in a better position, later.

    oldgoat36 in reply to Valerie. | October 6, 2019 at 5:48 pm

    She is barely polling now, why would a later run suddenly make her lack of appeal improve beyond what it is now?

    She’s even less likeable than Hillary, which is just sad.

      Valerie in reply to oldgoat36. | October 6, 2019 at 7:38 pm

      Oh, I don’t like her, either. But if I were to follow conventional wisdom, no Democrat has a good chance against a popular incumbent, and running and losing against a popular incumbent is no way to set up for a clean run against a non-incumbent.

      Conventional wisdom sees the following election to be a good one for a Democrat. So, the best course is to wait. He is placing her to follow the best course.

    I think Gabbard ended Harris’ political career in Debate 2. She can forget about president and may not be reelected to the Senate in 2022.

    Then Gabbard ended her own political career by independently telling Fox that she was against impeachment when all Dems were supposed to be for it, at a very delicate moment. She was hammered back in but her upside is gone.

Kamala Harris was seen today, rushing into willie bronwn’s house, wearing extra-thick kneepads. She emerged an hour later, rubbing her jaw in extreme discomfort.

boundlesscorruption | October 6, 2019 at 4:47 pm

Relationship with Willie Brown. This explains why Harris blew her way to the top.

She’s smart enough, she’s drunk enough, and gosh darn it, people like her!

    Randolf99 in reply to McGehee. | October 8, 2019 at 11:28 pm

    :and gosh darn it, people like her!”

    I know I do. Some of those videos of her stumbling into the arms of her bodyguards are positively hilarious! We can look forward to several weeks of Hillary jokes before the election so that would lighten the air.

Ouch.

I mean, the last two times I know of where the Democrats renominated the loser from their previous election, one was Adlai Stevenson for President against Eisenhower, and the other was Tom Bradley for Governor of California against George Deukmejian. President Stevenson is remembered right up there with President William Jennings Bryan, and Governor Bradley has never been equaled.

    artichoke in reply to McGehee. | October 7, 2019 at 4:10 pm

    But Adlai Stevenson was never a threat to win. I don’t know about Bradley but maybe Cal. wasn’t about to elect a black man.

JackinSilverSpring | October 6, 2019 at 5:22 pm

Ms.H. Clinton is afflicted with some kind of illness that is being well-kept from the public. The last campaign revealed an issue, so does anyone in his/her right mind she run again?

    That one died. The one that did all 3 debates is a new one: younger, shorter, thinner. Seriously. They tried to avoid showing that she was always wearing heels, and she’s still shorter than the old one who wore flats.

Willie knows Kamala is only good for one thing. Polesmoking.

    Randolf99 in reply to CDR D. | October 8, 2019 at 11:31 pm

    Apparently, she wasn’t very good at that. Willie isn’t recommending her.
    Now, if Madonna was running, we’d be talking about serious pole smoking. She offered to perform oral sex on any guy that voted Demorat. Then, she said they didn’t even have to vote.

I would like for Hillary! to run again just to watch Democrat’s’ reactions. For nearly three years Democrats have been screaming how Hillary! is the rightful president and Her place was stolen by the uncouth bounder Trump. The present efforts to impeach Trump were inspired by the Russian Hacking conspiracy hoax.

Another Hillary! run would call the MSM/DNC’s bluff. How can they proclaim Her to be the True President in 2016 while denying Her the nomination in 2020? It reminds me of the famous photograph of Stalin and Nikolai Yezhov where the latter was later removed from the photo because of the Great Purge.

https://www.history.com/news/josef-stalin-great-purge-photo-retouching

Something similar would happen in 2020 if Hillary! runs again, as the media would have to erase Her (Yezhov-style) in order to make room for Warren or Harris. Hillary! would have Her hagiographic publicity cut off cold if She did not follow orders, and the Russian Hacking conspiracy hoax would suddenly vanish without a trace from the media’s collective memory.

It is morbid – but undeniably fascinating – to watch the United States morph into Soviet Union II. The erasing of Hillary! would be another step in the gaslighting of America.

Not only knee pads don’t take you very far, there’s not a long memory effect.

I predict the dems will draft Mitt Romney.

“Clinton beat Trump by nearly 3 million votes nationally in 2016, but of course lost the Electoral College. That’s not bad for one of the worst-run campaigns ever. You’ve got to think she and the party learned something.”

This is delusional. She hasn’t learned a damned thing. To hear her talk she ran one of the best campaigns in history, she made no mistakes herself that could have possibly cost her the election, but she was sabotaged by James Comey, Vladimir Putin, Bernie Sanders, the press which was against her (seriously, she said that) White married women who don’t think for themselves and just do what their husbands tell them to do, and as far as I know space aliens.

Also, a couple of Secret Service officers have written books about how Hillary is an unbalanced lunatic who is prone to flying into uncontrolled fits of towering rage at the drop of a hit. And while she likes to talk about her foreign policy experience she actually has none. Never confuse meaningless activity with accomplishments. She was a disaster as Secretary of State. When she travelled to other countries all she did was embarrass and infuriate the leaders of those countries because she would only ride with Huma Abedin. It is a huge breach of protocol to travel to a foreign country and then refuse to ride in the same vehicle as the leader of that country. But she didn’t care about unimportant things like protocol; as we’ve seen the rules are for the little people.

Like the leaders of those unimportant little countries she’d visit, who were beneath her exalted self.

So, sure, nominate this disaster and she’ll lose again. Like she’s lost every time she’s run for President.

“It is a huge breach of protocol to travel to a foreign country and then refuse to ride in the same vehicle as the leader of that country. But she didn’t care about unimportant things like protocol; as we’ve seen the rules are for the little people.”

Too close an exposure should (when) something goes wrong…. physically/medically. Seizing or stumbling into or out of a vehicle without covering support would be tough.

“Funny, smart, and natural? One out of three isn’t bad, I guess.”

1 of 3? I’d say she’s batting zero, not funny, smart, or natural.

Willie Brown is a wily and wise politico. He knows that Kamala may have been good for a weekend and some “strange” [since he was still married at the time]. But the Presidency is a bigger job than Kamala can handle–and maybe Hillary could do it. If she fools enough people this time around.

    How can she fool more people this time? She’s spent the last 3 years making public appearances, alternating between rage and whining, and in general making campaign commercials for Trump.

I guess Heels-Up didn’t leave fond enough memories. SNL skit labeled her the campaign’s Fun Aunt, or “Funt” 😉

I guess the fact that she holds the world record for most felonies by a Democrat didn’t come into consideration.

“Clinton beat Trump by nearly 3 million votes nationally in 2016, but of course lost the Electoral College.”

The Democrat nominee should be required to sign an acknowledgement of the constitutional rules of a presidential election before beginning his campaign.

After spending two billion dollars on her fixed election, and she lost anyway… They will not finance that loser to try again.

During the 2016 campaign there were several occasions that made it clear that Hillary suffers some kind of neurological impairment.
When she collapsed at a Labor Day function, it was said that she became faint because she was dehydrated. However, faintness makes you limp; it was obvious from the video that her leg was rigid. AFAIK only neurological damage can create that effect.
One other episode was when she kept bobbing her head up and down for at least 30 seconds. She appeared unable to stop.
It appears she is intermittently partially disabled. Even if I agreed with her policies, her physical problems would prevent me from voting for her.

Perhaps this was the plan all along. The others are so crazy it makes her look sane and she denies being pure evil so that makes it so

I get it, I get it. Kamala no longer returns Willies calls and Hillary has a lot of damaging dirt on Willie, a convergence of interests.
