Tulsi Gabbard destroys Kamala Harris

OUCH!

CNN host Jake Tapper queued up the question for the Hawaii congresswoman, asking her about her previous criticism of Harris for calling former Vice President Joe Biden a racist. But Gabbard had another path.

“I want to bring the conversation back to the broken criminal justice system that is disproportionately negatively impacting black and brown people all across this country today,” Gabbard began before unloading on Harris.

“Sen. Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she’ll be a prosecutor president, but I’m deeply concerned about this record,” she added. “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.”

She went on to accuse Harris of hiding evidence that would have “freed an innocent man from death row” and that she kept prisoners past their sentence so as to use them as “cheap labor” in the state of California.

Her remarks sparked applause from the audience and caused Harris to shake her head, quietly saying “that’s not true.”

But Gabbard wasn’t done, as she continued her journey through Harris prosecutor past, accusing her of fighting to keep the unfair system of cash bail which, she noted, hurts poorer people “in the worst kind of way.”

Gabbard, to me, seems, at least in some ways reasonable, and yes, very attractive. She is certainly more in touch with at least some American values than Harris, who strikes me as a statist and elitist
