ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl made a lewd tweet Tuesday night after holding a fundraiser with the cast of “The Avengers” under the direction of vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris.
Harris, who has rarely asked reporters questions because she was linked to tickets, was told by an ABC News journalist to make fun of reporters for spending more time with Hollywood stars.
Kamala suitable for green press availability: ‘What are they doing?’
“A foundation stone tonight, @KamalaHarris Played trivia and answered questions from the cast of Avengers, ”Karl tweeted. “And with that, the Democratic VP nominee has now raised more questions than the cast of the Avengers from the press covering his campaign.”
The virtual event was attended by Liberal actors Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd and Joe Saldana.
According to Deadline, Saldana sang “Happy Birthday” to Harris, while Johansson asked hard-hitting questions about what kind of superpower he felt.
Harris and his running mate, presidential candidate Joe Biden, have faced criticism for not being accessible to the media, with the exception of interviews with friendly outlets. Biden famously spoke to a reporter who recently asked about the New York Post bombings, including his son Hunter Biden, days after the silence.
