The political operation assembled to elected Donald Trump as president yet again is already spending the big bucks to run ads against Kamala Harris, the same day after President Joe Biden decided to step aside and endorse her.Biden said he would stand down from his campaign and focus on finishing his term as U.S. president, and then recommended his #2 for the job instead. Trump went on the attack against Biden after a wait.Now, Trump's PAC, which is separate from his campaign, is taking on Harris.ALSO READ: How much access did $50,000 buy someone at the Republican National Convention?Make America Great Again Inc. said on Sunday that, "Kamala was in on it.""She covered up Joe's obvious mental decline. Kamala knew Joe couldn't do the job, so she did it," they wrote. "Look what she got done: a border invasion, runaway inflation, the American Dream dead."In a follow-up post, the group claimed their anti-Harris ad will be "going to be airing ASAP on TVs in Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Arizona as part of MAGA Inc's $5 million a week advertising effort."Will Steakin of ABC News said, "Trump PAC moving fast."In a statement, the Trump campaign itself appeared to align against Harris, too."And during this entire term, Kamala Harris – as well as every other Democrat in Washington, sat by and did NOTHING. They are all just as complicit as Biden is in the destruction of our once-great Nation, and they must all be thrown out of office," the campaign said. "Kamala Harris is just as much of joke as Biden is. Harris will be even WORSE for the people of our Nation than Joe Biden. Harris has been the Enabler in Chief for Crooked Joe this entire time. They own each other’s records, and there is no distance between the two. Harris must defend the failed Biden Administration AND her liberal, weak-on-crime record in CA."

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was on the receiving end of a blizzard of insults after he used President Joe Biden's announcement on Sunday that he would no longer seek re-election to demand the president step down.Hawley took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to sneer, "Then RESIGN your office. If you can’t run a mere political campaign, you can’t be President."Commenters were quick to note that not only would that make Vice President Kamala Harris the president, thus the incumbent, but also pointed to Hawley's support for the Jan. 6 rioters he was filmed running away from, which led his hometown paper to label him a "fleeing coward."ALSO READ: How much access did $50,000 buy someone at the Republican National Convention?According to one Hawley critic, "All you can run, Senator, is your mouth. And your scared little legs."Journalist Luke Zaleski wrote, "thanks josh, for threatening americans, continuing to hold us hostage after letting trump get away with treason, after letting trump get away with obstruction, after letting trump get away with abuse of power, after letting russia get away with interfering in our elections—but no.""Harris will be president then. Nice self-own," Blue Georgia added.Joey Bonanno wrote, "Wrong little boy, campaign is a 4 year commitment, President Will finish his term, then we will elect President Harris in November.""YOU RESIGN! Traitor!" advised another commenter to which John Freeman added, "How about you resign, do you remember your role in January 6th & your support of a convicted felon."Another cited his infamous Jan 6 sprint, writing, "You’re never gonna be able to run away from running away."Another commenter summed it up with a meme: — (@)
