On January 21, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) went on GMA and announced her intention to run for president in 2020.

Harris officially launched her presidential campaign this past weekend in Oakland, CA, in front of an adoring media, which may spell trouble for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

The Speech

In front of the crowd, Harris declared that she will fight to provide Medicare for all, universal pre-kindergarten education, and middle class tax cuts. She also promised to fight for racial justice and women’s rights.

Harris described President Donald Trump’s wall as a “medieval vanity project.” She said, “When we have children in cages crying for their mothers and fathers, don’t you dare call that border security. That’s a human rights abuse. And that’s not our America.” I noticed she did not mention that also happened under President Barack Obama probably because NARRATIVE!

More from USA Today:

When the applause calmed, Harris ran down some of her differences with the current administration, including foreign policy and its stance on climate change – “We’re going to act based on science fact, not science fiction’’ – and she mentioned a number of issues she would address as president.

Among them are the disparity in wages for the same work between men and women – especially steep for women of color – the uneven application of justice in the legal system and the need to secure future elections against foreign interference.

Harris, the first senator to co-sponsor Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2017 legislation calling for Medicare for all, got one of her biggest ovations of the day when she reiterated her support for that measure while calling health care a fundamental right.

And she drew another long round of applause when she culminated her remarks by saying, “With faith in God, with fidelity to country and with the fighting spirit I got from my mother, I stand before you today to announce my candidacy for president of the United States.”

Science based so I guess she will admit that life does begin at conception and that abortion is the murder of unborn human beings? Has Harris found the ability to tell Mother Nature to stop naturally warming?

Harris spit out the usual rhetoric used by Democrats to rile up the left like “the American Dream and our American democracy are under attack and on the line like never before” and that we don’t live in “ordinary times, and this will not be an ordinary election.”

Last I checked we live in a republic while citizens still have the ability to roam freely and speak their minds as they wish. You know, unlike the man hanged in Iran because he was the gay or the 20+ people killed during Mass in the Philippines.

Media and Hollywood

Is Harris the candidate the DNC wants? The crowd in Oakland outnumbered the crowd at Obama’s presidential announcement.

Plus the media:

Hollywood as well:

Affair With Former San Francisco Mayor?

Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown used his column in The San Francisco Chronicle to admit to he dated Harris more than 20 years ago. He hinted that he “may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker.”

As a way to defuse the situation, Brown pointed out that he “also helped the careers of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and a host of other politicians.”

Brown said that out of everyone, only Harris notified him that she would indict him if he “so much as jaywalked” while she served as district attorney.

I guess Brown decided to do this to get the situation out of the open now before one of Harris’s opponents could use it against her. Brown has a history of being a womanizer and charmer.
