How unpopular is the Biden administration?
Well, things have gotten so bad that even in deep blue NYC, there are more anti-Biden protesters than supporters.
Kamala Harris went to Carnegie Hall last night to enjoy a performance.
But rather than being greeted by adoring fans and voters, she was booed.
To make matters worse, the crowd outside was chanting:
Kamala is a wh*re!
Several people were on megaphones shouting the chant.
And that’s when hundreds of other protesters joined in.

But that wasn’t all.
Even though Joe Biden himself wasn’t there, the crowd engaged in anti-Biden chants.
If people are this angry against Biden and Kamala in NYC, imagine the red wave rising across the rest of the nation.
For those who don’t know…
Part of what makes the “Kamala is a wh*re” chant so funny and iconic is the fact that many people say it’s “true.”
Kamala has been accused of getting her start in politics with questionable sexual behavior.
According to USA Today:
Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown addressed his past relationship with Sen. Kamala Harris in a letter to the San Francisco Chronicle on Saturday and acknowledged giving her appointments that furthered her career.
“Yes, we dated. It was more than 20 years ago,” wrote Brown, who said he had “been peppered with calls from the national media about my ‘relationship’ with Kamala Harris, particularly since it became obvious that she was going to run for president.”
Harris’ office did not immediately respond to USA TODAY’s request for comment on Brown’s letter to the Chronicle.
Brown was married at the time he and Harris dated, but – because he had been “estranged from his wife” Blanche Brown since 1981, according to People magazine –the relationship was not kept secret. A Sacramento Bee reporter told People that Brown “had a succession of girlfriends” and would “go to a party with his wife on one arm and his girlfriend on the other.”
A 1994 Los Angeles Times report about then-California Assembly Speaker Brown’s “rush to hand out patronage jobs” described Harris as Brown’s “frequent companion” and said several people referred to her as Brown’s girlfriend. That report also cited a column from the Chronicle’s Herb Caen that called Harris “the Speaker’s new steady.” When they met, she was 29 and Brown was 60.
According to Caen, the couple split up in 1995, which “flabbergasted” those “who found Kamala the perfect antidote to whatever playboy tendencies still reside in the mayor-elect’s jaunty persona.”
Although Brown supported Harris in her successful 2003 run for San Francisco district attorney, she tried to distance herself from him in that race, telling SF Weekly that Brown – whose career was dogged by corruption allegations – was an “albatross hanging around my neck.”
“His career is over; I will be alive and kicking for the next 40 years. I do not owe him a thing,” she told SF Weekly, vowing, “If there is corruption, it will be prosecuted.”
Among the issues that followed Harris from her time with Brown was the allegation of cronyism in his appointment of her to two well-paying posts.
“Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker,” Brown wrote Saturday. Brown was the speaker from 1980 to 1995, prior to his stint as San Francisco mayor.
Whether or not the basis of the chant is true, it underscores how unpopular this administration is.
If they can’t even get supporters to come out in NYC, how will they expect the rest of the nation to support them?
