Senators Kamala Harris (CA) and Cory Booker (NJ) are both running for president.
The chances that either person secures the Democrat nomination are slim, at best.
After hearing that Empire actor Jussie Smollett was the “victim” of a “hate crime,” both Booker and Harris rushed to slam the “attack” as a “modern day lynching.”
Of course, the country now knows that Smollett faked the attack and paid two brothers to orchestrate the whole thing.
Now, Harris is at a loss for words when confronted by a reporter asking about Smollett…
From Free Beacon:
Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) froze and awkwardly looked around when pressed Monday on her tweet that the alleged attack on Jussie Smollett was a “modern-day lynching,” before saying she needed to see all the facts.
Smollet, a gay, black actor, claimed he was the victim of a hate crime in January, saying two men beat him up in a Chicago street, poured bleach on him and placed a rope around his neck. He also said they yelled, “This is MAGA country,” a reference to President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan. The story has taken a turn, with police now reportedly investigating whether Smollett orchestrated the attack himself by paying two Nigerian brothers to do it.
Democratic politicians were quick to believe Smollett’s account at the time and tweet out their condemnations, including Harris and other 2020 presidential candidates. She praised the actor as “one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know” and said “this was an attempted modern day lynching.”
.@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery.
This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.

Harris is not a fan of President Trump’s border policies.
She views them negatively, just like the majority of her party.
What’s interesting, and absolutely hilarious, is that Kamala gave a speech while protected from the crowd by…wait for it…

Ironic, isn’t it?

Harris went on CNN and attempted to defend her record on criminal justice:
the MSM won’t tell the American people the truth about Kamala’s “Medicare for all” push and how much it would burden the nation.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) slammed President Trump’s plan for a border wall and pushed for “Medicare for All” as she formally launched her run for the Democratic presidential nomination Sunday.
Harris: “I’m running to fight for an America where the economy works for working people. I am running to declare, once and for all, that health care is a fundamental right, and to deliver that right with ‘Medicare for All.’ To declare education is a fundamental right, and we will guarantee that right with universal pre-k and debt-free college.”
“Folks, on the subject of transnational gangs, let’s be perfectly clear: The president’s medieval vanity project is not going to stop them.”
“When we have children in cages, crying for their mothers and fathers, don’t you dare call that border security. That’s a human rights abuse.”
“America, we are better than this. People in power are trying to convince us that the villain in our American story is each other. But that is not our story. That is not who we are. That’s not our America. The United States of America is not about us against them. It’s about ‘We the People.’”
The thing the left doesn’t get is that health care is not a right, it is a privilege, as crazy as that may sound to even some on the right.
If Harris’s plan is anything like Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders’, it will cost the American people $32 trillion over a decade.
Sen. Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for all” plan would increase government health care spending by $32.6 trillion over 10 years, according to a study by a university-based libertarian policy center. That’s trillion with a “T.”
The latest plan from the Vermont independent would require historic tax increases as government replaces what employers and consumers now pay for health care, according to the analysis being released Monday by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University in Virginia. It would deliver significant savings on administration and drug costs, but increased demand for care would drive up spending, the analysis found.
