Howard Schultz Praises Article That Calls Kamala Harris ‘Shrill’ And Elizabeth Warren ‘Fauxcahontas’

With former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz continuing his disastrous media tour as he promotes his soft-selling book and tests the waters for a potential independent run for president, the billionaire took to Twitter to praise an article stating that he could actually win the 2020 race.

That piece also happened to call one female Democratic candidate “shrill” and evoked a racist insult of another.

Following his laughable appearance on Morning Joe in which he revealed he had no idea what a box of Cheerios cost and said Franklin Delano Roosevelt was his favorite Democratic president of the past 50 years — FDR died 74 years ago — Schultz tweeted out a link to conservative commentator and screenwriter Roger Simon’s piece on his candidacy.

(Shortly after publication, Schultz deleted the tweet, likely due to media outrage over it.)

It would appear that the inexperienced politician either didn’t read the article in its entirety or had no issue with the way Simon described current Democratic presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren. Check out the following paragraph from the piece, via PJ Media:

Elections are often a reaction to the previous one. America will be searching for a calm, level-headed voice. That, we know, is not Trump, nor is it the hard-left candidate that could well, in fact likely will, win the Democratic nomination. Current frontrunner Kamala Harris is far from reassuring. She’s a shrill (see the Kavanaugh hearings) quasi-socialist promising pie in the sky — Medicare-for-all, debt-free college, guaranteed pre-K, minimum basic income, confiscatory taxes — and she’s just getting started. Bernie and others will soon be following suit. Fauxcahontas already has, competing in a game of socialist one-upmanship. Even supposedly centrist Biden is playing along. Who will win the approval of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Too bad she’s too young to run.

Oy vey! Fauxcahontas? Shrill?

All this comes on the heels of Schultz calling Harris’ Medicare-for-All plan “not American and blasting Democrats as a whole for wanting to give a “free job” to everybody.
