If there is one thing that Kamala Harris has done poorly during the 2020 primaries, it is showing that she is capable of accepting responsibility for her own actions and shortcomings.
Harris sauntered into the 2020 primaries with an aura of inevitability, which was an immediate turnoff for many liberals who recall the incredible arrogance of Hillary Clinton just 3 years ago.
Then, when confronted with her egregious past actions as a no-nonsense prosecutor hellbent on jailing non-violent drug offenders, Kamala attempted to laugh it off with a lie about “smoking weed and listening to Tupac” that was almost immediately fact-checked by the online hive mind.
Now, as Harris continues to inch ever closer to being booted from the 2020 race, she is again refusing to accept her own role in this fate.
Advisers to Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., believe that her plunge in the polls over the summer was accelerated by a withering attack in a primary debate in July by Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, that left the then-front-runner reeling and donors “alarmed,” according to a new report about her struggling presidential bid.
In a lengthy deep-dive into the California senator’s struggles on the campaign trail, The New York Times on Friday reported that many Harris advisers point to a July debate moment between Gabbard and the senator as “accelerating” her decline in the polls.<
In that debate in Detroit, Mich., Gabbard took aim at Harris’ record as a prosecutor, saying she was “deeply concerned” about it.
“There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana,” Gabbard said.
Blaming someone for pointing out your own shortcomings is a sure sign of denial, and that is not a tactic that the American people hope to see exuded from the White House.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
