Democrats don’t often break ranks.
And it’s a big deal when Democrats turn on each other in public.
Now a fellow Democrat shut down Kamala Harris by speaking a truth Harris wants to keep buried.
Former Hawaii Congresswoman and 2020 Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard slammed Harris for lying to the American people when Harris said the border was secure.
Gabbard added that Harris’ inability to see or speak the truth about the border crisis disqualified her from ever serving as president.
“Kamala Harris’ statement that ‘we have a secure border’ is further evidence that she’s either completely disconnected from reality or she’s blatantly lying,” Gabbard posted on social media. “Either way, she has no business being a heartbeat away from the presidency.”
Gabbard reacted to an interview Harris gave to NBC’s “Meet the Press” on September 11.
Harris told former Democrat Party campaign operative and “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd that the border was secure and the number one action Congress could take to fix the immigration system was to grant amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens.
“I think that there is no question that we have to do what the president and I asked Congress to do, the first request we made: pass a bill to create a pathway to citizenship,” Harris told Todd. “The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular, over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed.”
Being a former Democrat Party campaign operative Todd instantly knew how damaging Harris’ remarks could be for the left’s hopes of clinging to their Congressional majorities in the November election.
Todd gave Harris a chance to clean up her answer.
“We’re going to have two million people cross this border for the first time ever,” Todd began. “You’re confident this border’s secure?”
Harris’ poor political instincts once again kicked in and she did not see the lifeline her fellow liberal threw her.
Instead, Harris doubled down on the deranged lie that Joe Biden secured the southern border.
“We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration,” Harris shot back. “But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix given the deterioration that happened over the last four years.”
Over 4,000,000 illegal aliens marched across the border since Joe Biden took office.
Hundreds of thousands now remain in America after gaming the asylum system with false claims upon which the Biden administration traffics them to red states on flights staged in the dead of night.
Several months on Joe Biden’s watch saw record numbers of illegal aliens crossing the border.
This is a massive political liability as polls show Republicans holding an overwhelming lead over Democrats on the issue of immigration.
Harris – at the minimum – can read a poll and knows that immigration is actually the issue that is driving a wedge in the Democrat coalition and pushing Hispanic voters towards the GOP.
But instead of acknowledging reality and working to secure the border Harris is telling an obvious lie which is only going to infuriate the voters Harris and Biden are trying to win back.
