We do this story about once a week!” Simmons said at the time. “It’s what you get with Uncle Joe.

Simmons also cast doubt on COVID-19(新型コロナウイルス感染症 ワクチン while the Trump administration rushed to get one approved for emergency use in 2020.

Trump’s fatally ill-managed Coronavirus response seems to have turned voters off to him the way Katrina destroyed Bush’s political reputation, but pushing a janky science vaccine into the public for political purposes would turn incompetent culpability into intentional harm,” he tweeted in September 2020.

I think #JoeBiden’s heart is in the right place but I just heard the perfect summation of his position,” 彼はツイートした 5月 2020. “’Black ppl are happy to have Biden at the cookout but he should remember he didn’t get the original invitation on his own. He was a plus one.’ Don’t get too comfortable.

Simmons also had a few things to say about then-Sen. Harris’ presidential campaign during the Democratic primary.

Prior to the debate I had been having bad feelings about the Harris campaign,” he wrote in July 2019. “It seemed listless, unfocused. These lackluster fundraising totals are not a surprise. I’m curious to see how this changes over the summer, now that Kamala’s poll numbers have increased and Biden seems more like a winged bird than the inevitable nominee.

After Harris dropped out of the race in December 2019, Simmons said Harris had a hard time going off script in her arguments and criticism of her opponents, and that shenever quite got comfortable getting out of the pre-planned moment.

When Kamala Harris goes into a room, frankly sometimes when Joe Biden goes into a room you just don’t know what will happen in that room, what they will argue,” Simmons added.

Simmons has also tweeted comments that would likely spark the ire of today’s progressives.

に 2010, Simmons repeatedly advocated for the arrest of illegal immigrants.

Just saw 2 undocumented folks talking on MSNBC. One Law student the other a protester. Can someone explain why ICE is not picking them up?” he tweeted Nov. 29, 2010.

I’ll try this again: Just saw 2 undocumented folks talking on MSNBC and have serious legal question. Why wouldn’t ICE pick them up?” 彼は尋ねた. “私達 [should] harden borders & ease visas/find ways to bring undocumented into legal status/punish employers. 私の [質問] だった [A] common sense one.
