Sen. Kamala Harris is more than likely gearing up for a 2020 presidential run, and she’s throwing everything at the wall to see what sticks.
During an appearance Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” the California Democrat used the first day of her media blitz to attack President Donald Trump, brushed off the Muslim lawmaker who referred to the president as a “motherf*cker,” and said she thinks Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s proposed 70 percent tax hike on wealthy Americans is “fantastic.”
Harris began by implying Trump will lie profusely on Tuesday night during his national address from the Oval Office, adding that Democrats and the media will provide the “truth” and “facts” after his speech.
She also called the border wall a “vanity project” and suggested it would be useless.
“We’re two years into an administration that has proven itself that there are statements being made that are simply just not the truth, and are frankly – pardon the term – propaganda,” Harris said. “American public deserves better…One does not need to create a problem. This issue is about a vanity project for this president.”
Later in the segment, Harris defended Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., who last week called on her congressional colleagues to “impeach the motherf*cker,” referring to Trump.
“Honestly, my candid response is that she’s not the first nor will she be the last elected person to curse in public,” Harris said.
“People are feeling very passionate right now in our country, and they’re expressing those views in a variety of ways. I also do believe that in the passion what we also do have to check, as a separate matter, is that there are also very right now powerful voices in our country that are sowing hate and division among us. And we also need to check that,” Harris added, with the crowd applauding her completely deflecting and making it all Trump’s fault.
In an interview on Tuesday morning with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Harris claimed there wasn’t a “crisis” and that Trump is lying about what is taking place on the southern border.
“It’s just simply not true,” Harris said. “It’s an emergency of his own creation.”
While the liberal hosts of The View and Stephanopoulos didn’t ask Harris any tough questions and gave her the floor to groundlessly attack Trump, a recent poll reveals that a vast majority of the nation agrees with Trump on the issue of border security.
According to a new Economist/YouGov survey, 93 percent of Americans say illegal immigration is a problem.
The poll found that just 7 percent of the overall public say illegal immigration is “not a problem” facing the nation.
Harris’ radical ideas and anti-Trump positions aren’t surprising, especially given this is the same woman who recently compared the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to the Ku Klux Klan.
Before that, she came under fire for refusing on 10 separate occasions to say whether she believes a “convicted felon” should be allowed to serve in the U.S. Senate.
She also wasn’t asked by anyone on Tuesday about The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust ranking her as one of the Worst Ethics Violators of 2018.
