      The cost of everything is going up under the Biden administration — well, maybe except one thing.

      The Democratic National Committee has reportedly cut prices for fundraising photo ops with Vice President Kamala Harris — from a whopping $15,000 to $5,000.

      The cost of taking a photo with Harris at last month’s DNC’s Women’s Leadership Forum was slated to start at $15,000 before it was eventually postponed due to an apparent lack of ticket sales, Puck reported Tuesday.

      Gleeful Twitter users immediately seized on Harris’ apparent lack of popularity.

      “DNC is slashing prices for a photo w/ Kamala Harris. Tickets for a photo with the VP at the Women’s Leadership Forum started at $15,000, but it failed to sell enough tickets & is being postponed. VP’s June fundraiser in Cali is charging $5,000 for a photo.” — Tara Palmeri, Twitter

      The DNC wouldn’t answer The Post’s questions about the slashed prices Tuesday — or the reason behind postponing Harris’ fundraising event last month.
      “The DNC works with our hosts and fundraisers to set specific ticket prices for each event. As has always been the case, there are a variety of ticket levels for every event as is pretty standard for finance events,” DNC deputy communications director Daniel Wessel said.
      “We’ve raised record amounts of money with help from both Vice President Harris and President Biden, so we’re going to continue to do what clearly works well for the party and our donors.”

      In their previous incarnation as the delusional PUMA cult, they agonized over the world refusing to accept their Lord & Savior, Hillary Clinton as Supreme Malevolent (Femalevolent??) Ruler of the Galaxy. And then bet their very souls that Scamala would succeed where Her Royal Corruptness of the Weathervanes had failed. Must really suck to be so 666% completely wrong yet again. Who will be their next object of Idolatry?? Shontel Stepford Wife Brown, maybe??  She really seems to bring in the Likud warmonger money.

      Seemed reasonable from an original price of $5000.

      So far the only possible campaign slogan I have seen is “possibly better than Biden”.  Nope.  Horrific in a different way.  Glad to not be a Dem any more, that’s for sure.  Imagine being tasked with shilling Kamala Harris.

      This says it all:

      so we’re going to continue to do what clearly works well for the party and our donors.”

      Translation: To Hell with what is right! We want what is good for the DNC and the filthy wealth behind it, even if that means selling a loser like Kamala.

      How do you sell a loser like Kamala?
      How does she hold up progress with one hand?
      And
      How would you make her stay and listen to all you say?
      Her salad words you will not understand, oh,
      How do you sell a loser like Kamala?
