Kamala Harris’ Past is Fair Game

by

In January, another Democrat declared their candidacy for President in 2020. California Senator Kamala Harris, who had been rumored to run since 2017, officially began her campaign with a rally in Oakland, California where she relentlessly bashed President Trump.

Earlier, on the day of her campaign launch in Oakland, Senator Harris had a low point in her career brought back into the spotlight by former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown. Harris and Brown were in a romantic relationship, which was also an extra marital affair for Mayor Brown. Brown claims that Harris used the affair to advance her career.

We need to examine Harris’ hypocrisy when it comes to Mayor Brown, as well as the rest of the far left when it comes to that, President Trump, and Brett Kavanaugh.

Harris and Trump

Everyone knows Donald Trump’s history with women, particularly his three marriages, extramarital affairs, and accusations of sexual assault and harassment. Several on the left claim Trump’s behavior was overlooked by his supporters, but these critics have gone silent over Harris supposedly being party to an affair with a married man for the purpose of advancing her career.

When she finally surpassed Mayor Brown in terms of political influence, she threatened to have him charged if he stepped one toe out of legal bounds. Brown said “that’s politics” over the jaywalking threat. Despite this known fact, the left will avoid bringing it up at all costs unlike what they have done and will likely continue to do against President Trump.

Harris and Kavanaugh

Harris decided to use Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing to make a fool of herself in multiple ways. Right away she called for the delay of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings and then wanted his nomination pulled when allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh were made public.

Her response was a different tune when allegations and confirmation of sexual assault and harassment against her former colleague, former Senator Al Franken (D-MN), were brought to light and all Harris wanted was an ethics investigation into the allegations and incidents. If Trump gets to nominate another Supreme Court Justice we will see several Democrats, notably Senator Harris who sits on the Judiciary Committee, use their time to advance themselves and slander the nominee.

Senator Harris’ controversial past and rise to power should be a cause of concern for anyone paying attention to the 2020 election season. Her socialist positions on healthcare and taxes would completely harm the country and add trillions of dollars to a debt that is already too high. Harris’ use of power and grandstanding on the Senate Judiciary Committee has hurt the confirmation process of Supreme Court Justices and her conduct should concern people as to how she would act as President.

She is not fit for the Presidency based on her policies, how she rose to power in San Francisco, and her conduct in two years as a senator.
