This is an even better point that I missed. It is not even like we can point to that one American-born VP from Thailand, then Japan, then China, then Tibet, that one lady from Taiwan, oh yeah, and Korea. Oh, look, the Indian one just got onstage with Biden. SHE IS THE ONLY ASIAN VP PERIOD!

That is precisely why I was not all in a huff about hearing “first black woman VP" as opposed to “Jamaican.” We have never had any at all.

Here’s hoping we have the option in the future to even make these kind of distinctions. But judging from all these goofy lawsuits, Trump’s crew will lose their absolute minds if it happens twice. Obama’s re-election made their heads turn in circles as is.
