  • It's just about a popular vote for them. They will never win the electoral college vote. They don't even know how that works. Trump 2020

  • No thank you. Now, Tulsi Gabbard on the other hand. Heck, even the Kiwis get it.

  • Why do voters listen to jargen candidates speak during election season? Select your candidate based on their voting record. Have they voted to bail out corporations and banks? Have they voted to increase already inflated Military budget? Did the candidate vote Yes on Tax cut for the Rich? Candidates promises are empty and self serving… Voting record is a much more reliable method. As for Kamala Harris and Booker, they are pro banksters and corporate agenda driven. Bernie 2020

  • What Dem loser wants to be her 2nd banana? All frontrunners want it all for themselves. Just one of the two dozen that will have their very own gofundme accounts, to do with whatever they will. How many contributors out there will make millionaires out of any candidate? Attacking their fellow Dems should have America entertained! Wild animals eating each other, in order to survive. How will Bathroom Booker help Bad Karma?

  • Oh yeah the lady who called those rendering emergency medical aid to children at the border "KKK Members" and was criticized on twitter by her supporters for including clip-art of an American flag when she announced her presidential run. Pass.

  • 0:15 hahaha tough questioning??? Everyone please watch the full videos of Kamala’s questioning of Judge Kavanaugh. Enlighten yourselves. Tough questioning?? Thats golden. Media like NBC and CNN are rewriting history. America should be very afraid. GET THE FACTS. Watch CSPAN. Don’t let the media make you sound stupid or convince you to make stupid decisions like vote for this disgrace playing on civil rights and minorities. Get a grip.

  • Corey Booker, gillbrandt, Warren, Harris, and Biden all have one thing in common. They are puppets who care more about their political party then the country. Sanders is crap too, and his ideas are unrealistic. Pretty much if you vote democrat, you are hurting yourself in the long run.

  • Richard Chappell says:

    No matter how bad Trump gets, it appears the Demokrats are doing their best to ensure he stays in office with candidates like this.

  • OMGitsIronMike NJ says:

    Here's my reaction:

  • She is a self-absorbed power hungry, narcissist. She was just elected to the CA senate, swore and oath to work for the state, and immediately announces her run for presidency. She couldn't possibly even have a handle on the senator job, but she doesn't care, she is dumping it and the people who voted her in to go for more power.

  • Umm what "AFRICAN-AMERICAN"? She is INDIAN. Even her name "Kamala" means lotus in the Indian language of Tamil. Please stop trying to get votes by pretending to be someone that you are not. Beto changed his name to make him more appealing to Hispanics and Ted Cruz changed his to get more white votes. What is up this politicians being so fake. I am still waiting for a black candidate to enter the race.

  • Seunghun Matthew Yi says:

    Liar!! Please do tell about gas price in California first!! Where the all the money went!! Where is the construction??

  • Kamala Harris's mind is Very chemically saturated, without the intellectual comprehension of the human eyes or understanding of 1950's sociologists.

  • Monkey Attackedmyass says:

    She won't make it out of the primaries. The Dems don't have anyone who can come close. It's gonna be a massive re-election landslide for President Trump.

  • In her Frisco days, she refused to seek the death penalty for “cop killers”.
    Apparently she is a big Ice-T fan……
    ……just what we need in a leader.
    “Uniquely poised” indeed……

  • This disgusting bigot for president ?
    Just look at her home town of Oakland California, one of the worst places to live in this entire country i.e. crime, poverty etc….
    Harris is an embarrassment to the human race !!

  • Kamala Harris is very two-faced. There is a reason the establishment is behind her despite her being a "progressive". She failed to prosecute steve mnuchin. For every "progressive" moment she has had in her career outside of politics she has had a conservative one as well. Links:

    https://www.jacobinmag.com/2017/08/kamala-harris-trump-obama-california-attorney-general

    Please don't be voting for her because she's black/indian, a woman, and "charismatic". Its a total gimmick and shows that none of you have clearly done your homework. Remember that at the end of the day, greed and corruption has no gender or color.

  • Proud to be We: Reb's Community says:

    Harris has to be for ALL of us, black, white, hisp, ALL rich, poor ALL and she is not open enough . She acts like she is too good for all of us. Trump one because he showed even if was an act, he showed ALL of us we were worthy of having our COUNTRY back. these people work for even the poorest of us. SO She needs to take a step back and understand it is not just about her click.

  • Democrats are champion of morality and equality, but when it comes down to themselves they believe are the holly savors of the world; In the 90’s Kamala Harris had an ongoing affairs with Willie Brown, married and Mayor of San Francisco and for her to deny the fact that She slept with a married man shows clearly the kind of demeanor and mind set to do whatever it is to satisfy her needs and ego, and she quoted: [“I am independent of him — and that he would probably right now express some fright about the fact that he cannot control me. His career is over; I will be alive and kicking for the next 40 years. I do not owe him a thing.”] this was after the mayor of San Francisco put her in power.

    Harris' opponents, incumbent District Attorney Terence Hallinan and local attorney Bill Fazio, turned her previous relationship with Brown into a campaign issue, arguing that Harris can not be trusted to hold a positions in the government because she had been previously involved with a married man; during the Kavanaugh’s hearing she portrayed herself as being morally right, the truth was she was morality wrong. She's hauling in campaigns cash like there's no tomorrow, and topping it all off, her blend of East Indian mother and black American father who may draw votes particularly well among women and minorities are the two factors for her leverage to hypnotize voters and feel they are picking a representative as many thought as Barrack Hussein Obama, Rashida Harbi Tlaib, Ilhan Abdullahi Omar and Ocasio Cortez, they all have been school by the same democrats who thought they will change the world.

  • Willie Brown's sloppy seconds, tossed away mistress will not become President of the United States! Maybe Kamala will pick up where Madonna left off by "blowing for votes"……..smh

  • You idiots are not going to get elected talking trash about Trump. That makes you look like a divider, not a uniter. No one can win an election with that sort of behavior.

  • Harris doesn't say what she wants…and she doesn't answer. So far it looks like she stands for nothing. Tulsi Gabbard talked about torturing and wasn't clear if she would do. That's why I moved a little away from her…but at least I can see what she stands for and that's why I'd rather vote for Tulsi than for Harris so far..

  • Sam The Man Cee says:

    – Harris is the closest thing we will get back to that reminds us of of the GREAT PRESIDENT OBAMA

    Donald trump does not care about minorities or the next generation of young adults who will go on to run this country
    his actions show this day in and day out & that is why we must VOTE DEMOCRATIC in 2020 !
    TRUMP IS A SELL OUT
    TRUMP IS A LIAR
    TRUMP DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THE AVERAGE AMERICAN
    AND ANYONE IS BETTER THAN TRUMP

    * just know the Russians are out to try and wreck this great woman on social media
    But America WILL NOT FAIL HER just like she
    WILL NOT FAIL AMERICA

  • The trolls are out in full force. (That's a good sign). Kamala Harris has my vote, and I've got her back.

    We've got to do all that we can to ensure that a Democrat, whomever the nominee may be, is elected in November of 2020. The trolls will try to convince you that Kamala Harris (and any other candidate that becomes the nominee) is not "sufficiently liberal" or they may suggest that someone is a "corporate shill".

    These arguments lack credibility, and when we feed into their narrative we're giving them what they want, which is to divide us, demoralize us, and to keep us from voting for the Democratic Party, which represent the values and progressive platform that we stand for.

    Hate won't win again. We've got this ✊🏽

  • She's a black woman, that's good. 
    But we Democrats deserve better. 
    If she were a transgender handcapped midget black woman, THEN we's have some thing.

  • Not worthy of the Position,Also no reason why she is even running.She helped to Doom california and we will Vote both Pelosi and Harris out of California.We are to smart to have them continue their lack of leadership in our Country or State.

  • Senator Kamala Harris has two immigrant parents. Her mother is from India and her father is from Jamaica. She lived in Oakland until age 7 and afterwards, she was raised in Canada and went to a Canadian grade school and high school until age 18. She came back to America to go to Howard University to physically study Black Americans and learn how their culture and how they think. She reinvented herself as an Black American. She is more of a Canadian than an American. she spent the majority of her career as a district attorney in California prosecuting Americans. I'll pass.

  • Is Kamala Harris even eligible to be POTUS, is she a Natural Born Citizen ? Or just an anchor baby citizen ?

    There is no information as to when Kamala Harris’s parents got their US citizenship. Her mother immigrated to the US in 1960 from India and her father immigrated to the US in 1961 from Jamaica. Usually people immigrate when they get their working visas or Green Cads. It takes 5-6 years to get a US citizenship after getting a Green Card. So, in the best case scenario, if her parents her Green Cards and not just visas, they could not get their citizenship until 1965-1966. This means that when Harris was born, she was a daughter of two foreign nationals, not US citizens, who were residing here on visas. For this reason Kamala Harris is a US citizen, but not a Natural born Citizen and should not be eligible to run for president. This has nothing to do with race, it has everything to do with nationality. At her birth she inherited Indian and Jamaican citizenship and has a split allegiance.

    Will the media ask the question ?

  • Kamala – How should I describe me #i well tell
    You are the MF
    You are the annoying women
    You are the mother of interruption

  • Kamala has a trash record in California, particularly with sentencing laws that affect Blacks. Which makes sense since she doesn't claim to be BUT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE is using Blacks to prop themselves up.

  • a complete fake.i dont care that you listen to "too short'.you fought against non-violent 2 timers getting released because as you stated,(they represent an important labor pool in the prison system).white power in "cafe au latte" coloring.welcome to bed wench paradise.

  • READ AND FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION .. SHE IS NOT LEGAL TO RUN FOR POTUS , JUST LIKE THE BAMA WAS NOT, AND as well Ted Cruz.. One must be born to TWO Citizen Parents .. Neither of her parents were born her , thus, she is NOT ELIGIBLE TO BE POTUS .

  • Lol. She will not come close. After the Kavenaw charade she showed her true colors, she may win CA where all the illegals are but that will be her run for President. People have more pride when they work for something instead of getting free handouts, especially when they get more then the American citizen. Sorry but that's life in the big peoples world.

  • crash bandicoot says:

    How does she Progressive herself as a proud American who wrongfully imprison people even though there was evidence showing that these people were innocent while also letting actual criminals get off scot-free like Steve mnuchin with his over a thousand different crimes and her also being strictly against marijuana even though there's nothing wrong with it she's really one of the least Progressive candidates that are running right now quite funny how can anyone get excited for this bimbo just because she might be asleep it more Progressive than Hillary Clinton is it necessarily an accomplishment and it should be something that you're proud of just about anybody in their mother can be more Progressive than Hillary Clinton but she's basically a Hillary Clinton 2.0 for Barack Obama in high heels and a wig she can talk well but talking is only part of the job you need to actually do actions that will positively affect the working class and not just benefit the top 1% IE all of her donors!

  • willieboy3011 Jonas says:

    Harris has shown a pattern of hostility towards whites and, as such, cannot seriously be considered by most of us. America does not need her racial hatred. Harris's virulent attacks on white US Supreme Court nominee Bret Kavanagh was displayed despite the evidence being nonexistent and witnesses disputing his accuser's own friend. As a San Francisco prosecutor Harris chose not to seek the death penalty for black gang member who murdered a white Hispanic officer in 2004. . In July 2015 illegal alien Jose Ines Garcia Garcia Zarate, who had a record of seven felony convictions and five previous deportations and been turned lose by sanctuary city San Francisco shot and killed 32 year old legal American Kate Steinle who was walking with her father. Yet in November 2018 Harris compared ICE agents to the KKK. Harris has also joked about killing President Trump on Ellen's show.

  • Good to see that people in the comments are being objective and not basing a candidate's quality on their gender and ethnic background.

  • willieboy3011 Jonas says:

    "Yes, we dated," Willie Brown wrote. "It was more than 20 years ago. Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker. "And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco," he added. The two positions reportedly earned her more than $400,000 over five years.

  • Kamala Marital affairs ? https://www.foxnews.com/politics/former-san-francisco-mayor-addresses-past-relationship-with-sen-kamala-harris

  • She should hire Willie Brown as a consultant. Her affair with him got her jobs in politics. Maybe she should return the favor. What a bunch of corrupt Leftists.
