"No One Takes Stacey Seriously:" Biden Campaign Increasingly Annoyed by Stacy "Tank" Abrams' Aggressive, Almost Menacing, Campaigning for Vice President

The lulz.

Due to political correctness, no one can just say "she's a barely-known local legislator with no qualifications."

Everyone has to pretend publicly that she's totes qualified to be president, just because of her skin color and her genitals.

But anonymously --they'll tell the truth.

Stacey Abrams, a former Georgia State House leader, is aggressively marketing herself as a potential vice president for Joe Biden -- increasingly irritating those in the former veep’s orbit, an insider said.

...


While campaigning for vice president traditionally requires a delicate dance of private lobbying and public demurring, Abrams has flipped the script -- openly campaigning for the position. In an April 22 appearance on "The View" Abrams said she has "concerns" about Biden "not picking a woman of color."

In an interview with Elle Magazine a week earlier, Abrams gushed that she "would be an excellent running mate" and lauded her "25 years in independent study of foreign policy."

But she has no previous national experience, and is mostly remembered for narrowly losing a race for governor of Georgia in 2018.

"No one takes Stacey seriously. And her public campaigning for the job seems more like a hostage negotiation than an actual attempt to get the job," a Biden insider told The Post. "Biden is an old school guy and will always be. Picking Stacey would be like picking [Sarah] Palin. He doesn’t need to throw a Hail Mary. He wants a good governing partner."

Internally, her star has fallen with the onset of the coronavirus as concerns grow about her preparedness.

"Stacey isn't ready on day one. Even she knows that and it's why she's engaging in this dance. She might get perfunctorily better, but she’s not a serious pick for him. And her campaign is viewed as much as promotion for her book as it is for being chosen as Biden's VP," the insider continued, referring to Abrams' forthcoming book "Our Time Is Now."

Meanwhile, narcissistic lightweight Kirsten Gillbrand is also campaigning to be vice president, but informed speculation says she's actually interested in being... Secretary of Defense.

So she can remake the military into a #MeToo organization. No, seriously.
