She also said she’s been so vocal about wanting the post because people ask her basic questions about qualifications because of her race.
CNN political analyst April Ryan said that Joe Biden’s campaign is vetting Stacey Abrams for the VP spot.
Stephen Colbert asked Abrams about that, but she did not give the expected answer.
From The New York Post:
“I have said many times that if called, I will answer, but I have not received any calls,” Abrams told Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show” on Wednesday.
“Though I look forward to hearing from whomever April Ryan is speaking to,” she added, referring to the CNN political analyst whom the late-night host cited as having said the former Georgia State House leader was being vetted for veep.
Colbert also asked “why she has not been ‘demure’ in pining for the post.”
Abrams claimed it’s because people asked if she is qualified and if she can do this or that…because of her color.
I’m pretty sure everyone gets asked that. I’m pretty sure President Donald Trump was asked that a lot in 2016 because he had no political experience.
I also doubt anyone is even falling for it, including the Biden campaign:
“No one takes Stacey seriously. And her public campaigning for the job seems more like a hostage negotiation than an actual attempt to get the job,” a Biden insider has told The Post.
“Biden is an old-school guy and will always be. Picking Stacey would be like picking [Sarah] Palin. He doesn’t need to throw a Hail Mary. He wants a good governing partner.”
