It was supposed to be one of the marquee events of the year; however, it all went up in smoke.
Vice President Kamala Harris was scheduled to be the host for the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s leadership forum on May 25 and 26.
Tickets for the event started at $250 a pop, and if you wanted to get in the photo line it would cost $15,000 – $50,000.
Alas, there was just one problem…nobody wanted to go.
The DNC failed to sell enough tickets and they canceled the event hoping to reschedule for the fall.
So the @dnc had to move a May fundraiser with VP Kamala Harris to the fall because “they couldn’t sell enough tickets.”
Tough sledding when even the donors aren’t buying what you’re selling. pic.twitter.com/2ZmJSM6vRX

Maybe nobody wanted to go because Harris sounds like she doesn’t do her homework.

Incredibly, donors didn’t want to hear the VP’s amazing auditory skills.

For some reason, donors didn’t want to be wowed by her grasp of geopolitics.
“For Jamaica, one of the issues that has been presented as an issue that is economic in the way its impact has been the pandemic…we will assist Jamaica in Covid recovery by assisting in terms of the recovery efforts in Jamaica that have been essential,” Vice President Harris said.
Can anyone say filler words?
