Nearly 50 years ago, a Republican Senator told me that one of the main tactics used by far too many politicians on both sides of aisles was if you can’t beat with the truth, do what you can to make them look like something they aren’t.
That best describes the latest tactic used by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who I would NOT describe as a flaming liberal but a staunch Democratic socialist.
It’s no secret that Democrats oppose the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, for two reasons.
He was nominated by President Donald Trump and he is known as a constitutionalist, a judge who rules on the constitution and not political agenda and that frightens many Democrats.
Harris released a heavily edited video clip of Kavanaugh that makes him look like he out to end abortion and she advertised it as hi being anti-women.
The video is being liked and circulated by thousands, including Hillary Clinton, who forwarded the video have fact checkers showed how wrong the video was.
(Fox News) – Sen. Kamala Harris is facing backlash after several fact-checkers questioned a heavily edited video from her office that depicts Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as anti-women.
Harris, a California Democrat and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee — which will decide if Kavanaugh gets a lifetime appointment to the nation’s highest court — tweeted out the clip, which shows Kavanaugh mentioning the term “abortion-inducing drugs,” a term that Harris slammed as “a dog whistle for going after birth control.”
The tweet suggests that Kavanaugh seeks to take away “a woman’s constitutionally protected right to make her own health care decisions.”
The now-viral post has been retweeted more than 15,000 times and “liked” more than 30,000 times. Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton parroted Harris on Wednesday, days after her claims were debunked…
If Senate leadership had any fortitude to do what’s right, they would bring some sort of action against Harris for her intentional mis-representation of Kavanaugh.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should remove Harris from the Senate Judiciary Committee, the committee handling the current interviews with Kavanaugh.
However, McConnell is too spineless and probably won’t do anything to hold Harris accountable for her disgraceful and despicable actions.
