In an interview with the Tangazo podcast on Tuesday, Rep. William Lacy Clay stated that he finds former Georgia state Rep. Stacey Abrams’ campaigning to be Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s running mate “somewhat offensive” and “kind of inappropriate.”
“You know, at the race track, you cannot show up at the winner’s window with loser’s tickets,” Clay said, referring to Abrams’ loss in her state’s 2018 governor’s race. “You haven’t won anything. You can’t show up at the winner’s window with loser’s tickets and demand anything.
“I’ll tell you what is somewhat offensive to me, is when you are marketing yourself as a VP candidate. Hey, that’s entirely up to the nominee to determine who’s going to be on his ticket with him. And so, for you to be out there marketing and putting on a PR campaign in that way, I think it’s kind of inappropriate.”
It’s not just “inappropriate.” Abrams’ pushy self-promotion and shameless sense of entitlement to power are absurdly undeserved. She is a loser and her fellow Democrat Clay recognizes that.
