Joe Biden’s hopes of luring in minority voters took another major hit this week.
A report is blowing up all over the internet that a senior Latina staffer on Biden’s campaign has quit because she does not believe Biden is seriously committed to helping minorities, specifically the Hispanic community.
See Ya’, Joe!
Vanessa Cárdenas was reportedly the most senior Latina staffer working on the Biden campaign.
She was also the face of Biden’s National Coalitions committee.
While she has not publicly made any comments about leaving the campaign, she has talked to her friends about it, and they are more than willing to spill the beans about Joe.
She has, however, changed her Twitter bio to state, “formerly with @JoeBiden.”
One of Cárdenas’ friends stated, “The campaign is just hyper-focused on whites in Iowa and African-Americans and it placed less value on Latino outreach.
“Vanessa kept banging her head against the wall trying to get them to take the community more seriously.
“And Biden just really won’t change when it comes to the way he talks about immigration. It became too much.”
Biden has a reputation for telling people what they want to hear rather than what he is actually going to do, so this is not exactly going to help his reputation on that front.
Don’t Second Guess Joe
Biden has always had a reputation for not liking to be told he is wrong or confronted about his policies.
We have seen this repeatedly with the media and during debates.
You can excuse that, but when he goes off on a supporter, well, that is a different matter entirely.
When that supporter is also Hispanic, now you have opened up a can of worms that are going to be very difficult to put back in.
Biden, however, did exactly that when he went off on Carlos Rojas, an attendee at a recent Town Hall.
Rojas called out Biden on the Obama administration’s deportation record, so Biden told him, “You should vote for Trump.”
Situations such as this are exactly why Cárdenas left, according to her friends, who stated, “What happened last week was a perfect example of what Vanessa was dealing with.
“Biden just refuses to talk about the issue in a compassionate way.”
Biden has managed to avoid immigration so far on the campaign trail during the primary, but this will not be a luxury he will have during the election season.
Slowly but surely, we are seeing more and cracks in Joe’s foundation and it is only a matter of time until this house of cards collapses.
