Well, this is brutal.
According to a report from Fox News, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has greatly discounted photo ops. with Vice President Kamala Harris in light of her plummeting approval numbers.
Harris has a 52.1 unfavorable rating on the RealClearPolitics average.
From Fox News…
Harris was slated to appear at the DNC’s Women’s Leadership Forum this year as a headliner with a reported $15,000 price tag for a photo with the vice president.
The event ended up not selling enough tickets and was postponed along with the five-figure price tag for donors to have their picture taken with a sitting public servant.
However, those who want a picture with Harris and have $5,000 to burn, amid soaring inflation and rising gas prices, have another shot at getting their picture taken with Harris after the DNC reportedly slashed the price ahead of Harris’ June fundraiser in her home state of California, according to Puck News.
DNC deputy communications director Daniel Wessel told Fox News Digital that the leading Democratic body works with their “hosts and fundraisers to set specific ticket prices for each event.”
“As has always been the case, there are a variety of ticket levels for every event as is pretty standard for finance events,” Wessel said. “We’ve raised record amounts of money with help from both Vice President Harris and President Biden, so we’re going to continue to do what clearly works well for the party and our donors.”
Yeah, okay —whatever you say

RNC deputy national press secretary Nicole Morales couldn’t resist a good rib on Twitter, saying “Americans may not be able to afford gas or groceries anymore, but at least taking a picture with Kamala is on clearance!”
