California Democrat Kamala Harris was one of the first big names to announce her candidacy for president.
The Senator appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night ABC program to make a big announcement.
If she wins in 2020, which seems pretty darn far-fetched considering Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden will most likely win the Democrat nomination, she’ll prosecute President Trump.
Based on what?
That’s not the point, though. The point is that Kamala knows how to get a liberal crowd to cheer in her favor.
The senator’s past work as a prosecutor has made her a target for some progressives, but she made the case to Kimmel that it could be an asset when it comes to taking on Trump.
Harris: “I also believe that what voters are going to want is they are going to want that there is someone who has the proven ability to prosecute the case against this administration and this president. And that is going to be about having an ability and a proven ability to be able to articulate the evidence that makes the case for why we need new leadership in this country.“
Harris was recently busted for a blatant falsehood. She said she didn’t do something that she actually did do.
That’s not so far-fetched, though, is it?
What’s weird is that CNN called her out.
From Daily Wire:
If you’re carrying anything breakable, put it down before you read this and drop it: CNN issued a report detailing Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) lying to an Iowa audience on Sunday about a policy she supported in 2008 that called for illegal immigrants who were minors to be claimed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement if they were only suspected but not convicted of having committed a felony.
Harris had joined Political Party Live, an Iowa podcast, where she was queried by host Misty Rebik about her support of the 2008 policy, enacted by then-San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom. Rebik mentioned a CNN KFile report that detailed Harris’ support; it read:
Harris’s father is Jamaican and her mother is Indian.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews wants to know if Kamala is black enough.
Matthews: “Is she seen as African American? Is she seen as African American?“
Kamala’s father admitted that her ancestors owned slaves, via Jamaica Global Online:
As a child growing up in Jamaica, I often heard it said, by my parents and family friends: “memba whe yu cum fram”. To this day, I continue to retain the deep social awareness and strong sense of identity which that grassroots Jamaican philosophy fed in me. As a father, I naturally sought to develop the same sensibility in my two daughters. Born and bred in America, Kamala was the first in line to have it planted. Maya came two years later and had the advantage of an older sibling as mentor. It is for them to say truthfully now, not me, what if anything of value they carried from that early experience into adulthood. My one big regret is that they did not come to know very well the two most influential women in my life: “Miss Chrishy” and “Miss Iris” (as everybody called them). This is, in many ways, a story about these women and the heritage they gave us.
My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner (and founder of Brown’s Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me). The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural ‘produce’ exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown built in Brown’s Town (and where, as a child, I learned the catechism, was baptized and confirmed, and served as an acolyte).
