A campaign video posted by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Friday was soundly taken apart after Twitter users pointed out a rather large and inconvenient fact about the accomplishments she boasted about in the clip.
The tweet, posted on the three-year anniversary of the election of Donald Trump, notes what she talks about in the 30 second video. Since Trump’s election, she states, “I’ve taken on Jeff Sessions, Bill Barr, Brett Kavanaugh, and more in the Senate. And I’m ready to defeat Trump in 2020.”
Watch the clip below:
It’s been three years to the day since our national nightmare was elected president. Since then, I’ve taken on Jeff Sessions, Bill Barr, Brett Kavanaugh, and more in the Senate. And I’m ready to defeat Trump in 2020. pic.twitter.com/MAlNzBWFhB

Quite the record of failure for you
Sessions will be back in the Senate
Kavanaugh is a SCOTUS justice
Barr is busy prepping indictments for a bunch of the #TrumpRussia conspirators
Keep up the good work https://t.co/pY96qlnS4a

And lost every single time. Don’t forget that part.

That Harris and her campaign are posting things like this to her social media accounts in an effort to show what she can do is a strong indicator that nothing has really changed, that her campaign is still headed down the wrong path.
Because a candidate who thinks they can win an election should not post videos proving they didn’t win the fights they “took” to the opposing party’s nominees, and they especially should not equate those lost fights to what they say they’re going to do to the person they’re trying to oust from office.
They should know this. This is like Political Campaigning 101. SMH.
