Politico Is Petty AF

Just yesterday we were talking about how the press — and particularly Politico — has a sexist, racist weird obsession with Kamala Harris. Where it concerns Harris, things that would not have even made it into the back pages of the political section in the Trump administration are suddenly huge stories, like four staffers leaving the Vice President’s office at the end of the year (or an “exodus,” as the press calls it; a fake rivalry between Harris and Pete Buttigieg; idle, unfounded rumors about Harris being appointed to the Supreme Court to remove her from the 2024/28 equation.

The latest issue that Politico apparently has with Kamala Harris? She uses wired headphones.


Yes, the Vice President of the United States — who might understandably have security concerns when it comes to wireless technology — eschews AirPods for wired headphones. The audacity! And Politico doesn’t just know this: They have three sources on the Bluetooth phobia scandal!

Wow! Should someone call the DOJ and get an investigation started? Is this impeachment worthy? What does Pete Buttigieg think? Here’s an actual real-life excerpt from the piece:

That caution and vigilance has not stood in the way of Harris’ meteoric rise to the vice presidency — the first woman of color to do so. But still, should someone who travels with the nuclear football be spending time untangling her headphone wires? The American people deserve answers!

Confession: While I own a pair of AirPods, I strongly preferred wired headphones myself, and not for security reasons, but because AirPods are a pain in the ass. They’re easy to lose, they always have to be charged, they don’t always pair quickly, sometimes only one ear decides to work, and I’m always re-adjusting the AirPods to hear better. Wired headphones are just more convenient. Please do not report me to the authorities.

And yes: This story is trending on Twitter.
