While Americans are paying record prices for everyday items from groceries to gasoline, there’s one market where demand has failed to keep up with sky high inflation: photos with Vice President Kamala Harris.

According to Tara Palmeri, formerly of Politico and now at Puck News, the DNC cut the cost for a photo with Harris at a California fundraiser with the Women’s Leadership Forum from $15,000 to $5,000. The rare price cut in the Biden economy came after the event reportedly struggled to sell enough tickets.

According to the latest data from the Department of Labor, Americans across-the-board, including DNC donors, are now paying 10 percent more for groceries, 16 percent more for used cars, 34 percent more for energy, but 67 percent less for pictures with the vice president.

Beyond the dismal approval ratings, wherein 52 percent, or more than half the country sees the vice president unfavorably compared to less than 40 percent who report otherwise, the lack of interest in the first female leader to occupy the Naval Observatory remains somewhat of a mystery.

Since coming into office, Harris, 57, has developed a record of distracting a public in distress from the 79-year-old president’s woes with words of inspiration and celerity-like candor so strong that children seemed enamored by her animated explanation of space exploration. Never mind the vice president’s audience was full of paid child actors.

In March, the vice president’s intelligence was on full display as someone prepared to assume to Oval Office at a moment’s notice when she described the war in Ukraine.

“So Ukraine is a country in Europe. It exists next to another country called Russia,” she told a radio audience on the “Morning Hustle. “Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine. So basically, that’s wrong.”

The comments offered a stellar analysis from an articulate leader whose comments throughout her brief time in the administration have already become enshrined on motivational posters and videos.

If Harris ever finds solutions to those root problems of immigration, however, those bargain photos might be short lived.
