US Senator Kamala Harris of California is Joe Biden’s choice to be the Democratic vice-presidential candidate.

The worst possible candidate for the top of the ticket will now be joined by perhaps the most anti-Palestinian of the vice-presidential candidates.

Harris twice received financial support from Donald Trump when running for state attorney general.
