He also poked fun at Biden (called him dazed and confused) and criticized Harris during her short presidential campaign.
Delete. Your. Tweets.
Also, this shouldn’t be a big deal, but hey The left made the rules. Do you want to nitpick old tweets? Let’s do this.
Her new communications director, Jamal Simmons, apologized for a 2010 tweet because he wanted to know why ICE didn’t do anything about two illegal aliens on MSNBC.
Simmons apologized: “As a pundit for much of my career I have tweeted a lot and spoken out on public issues. Sometimes I have been sarcastic, unclear, or just plainly missed the mark. I sincerely apologize for offending those who care as much as I do about making America the best, multi-ethnic, diverse democracy it can be,” he said. “I know the role I am taking on is to represent the Biden-Harris administration, and I will do so with humility, sincerity and respect.”
In response to these old tweets, Simmons says in a statement:

But that’s the only tweet or remark connected to Simmons’s apology. He made fun of Biden in 2019 when he hosted a show:
Simmons previously hosted a news show for The Hill called “Why You Should Care,” in which he aired a segment in August 2019 titled “Dazed & Confused,” poking fun at Biden for the many conflated and exaggerated stories he’s told the public over the years.
“We do this story about once a week!” Simmons said at the time. “It’s what you get with Uncle Joe.”
Then in March 2020:
Simmons criticized Harris’s presidential campaign. He was softer with her, offering advice. But let’s just say he didn’t sound very confident about his now-boss:
Simmons also had a few things to say about then-Sen. Harris’ presidential campaign during the Democratic primary.
“Prior to the debate I had been having bad feelings about the Harris campaign,” he wrote in July 2019. “It seemed listless, unfocused. These lackluster fundraising totals are not a surprise. I’m curious to see how this changes over the summer, now that Kamala’s poll numbers have increased and Biden seems more like a winged bird than the inevitable nominee.”
After Harris dropped out of the race in December 2019, Simmons said Harris had a hard time going off script in her arguments and criticism of her opponents, and that she “never quite got comfortable getting out of the pre-planned moment.”
“When Kamala Harris goes into a room, frankly sometimes when Joe Biden goes into a room you just don’t know what will happen in that room, what they will argue,” Simmons added.
Simmons also slammed Trump for “pushing a janky science vaccine” but he’s a Democrat and they were all doing that.
Simmons, please tell her to stop cackling.
Either way, I wonder how long Simmons will last. Harris’s office is a mess.DONATE
