Failed presidential candidate Kamala Harris made headlines by viciously attacking then-opponent Joe Biden on the debate stage in 2019.
Now, as Biden’s newly-appointed running mate, Harris is struggling to avoid questions about how she went from implying Biden was a racist to happily joining his ticket. CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert asked Harris in a recent interview how she made the switch — her answer tells you everything you need to know about a potential Harris presidency.
Harris’s cackling and repeating “it was a debate” multiple times while Colbert asks the question on every voter’s mind proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that Harris does not mean anything she says.
Harris received applause in 2019 from many on the left for fearlessly calling out Biden for his opposition to busing and his willingness to work closely with segregationalists during his time in the Senate.
She may have stopped short of calling Biden a racist at the time, but heavily implied that was at the very least implicit in propping up racists and racist policies. Now, as a contender for president, she still won’t explain how she suddenly is okay with Biden’s record.
We’ll let you in on a little secret: It’s because she can’t say it out loud, but Kamala Harris is simply willing to do or say whatever it takes to seize power.
