Remember when reporters covering the 2016 campaign went shoe shopping with Donald Trump?
Neither do I.
But I do remember a fawning press swooning over Barack Hussein Obama.
In what proves to be a perfect encapsulation of what to expect in the 2020 presidential election, reporters tasked with covering the campaign of Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., were seen acting more like girlfriends out on a shopping spree with the candidate than journalists.
Harris was touring female-owned businesses in Columbia, South Carolina, when she was “forced” by some of the reporters covering her to try on a nice rainbow sequined jacket, as seen in a tweet from CNN national political reporter Maeve Reston.
“We kind of forced @kamalaharris to try on this awesome oversized rainbow sequin jacket … She snapped it up. @alivitali perfectly named it as “the Mardi Gras Jacket” #2020 #SouthCarolina #CampaignFashionReport.”….

The whole affair was more than Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume could bear.
Hume, from an age when journalism still had some sense of pride, took to Twitter to call the spectacle “embarrassing” in a response to Burns’ tweet.
“This is just embarrassing,” he tweeted. “So now journalists are going shopping with Harris, helping pick out clothes and then putting out glowing tweets about it.”
Naturally, this set the liberal media dogs loose….
