Dem Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris looks to be lying to the public. She must think that there is no video evidence of the slight. During a Townhall in New Hampshire, she laughed when a member of the audience called Trump’s actions “mentally retarded.” In fact, she replied while chuckling “Well said.” But now she is claiming she would never have condoned such, in response to the public outcry.
Harris commented about the incident on Saturday claiming she was unaware that anyone said that. So maybe it wasn’t “well said?”
I want to ask you about something that happened yesterday. Someone at your Townhall that we were at yesterday called the current president, President Trump, “mentally retarded.” What do you make of that there’s video on social media? Caitlin Huey-Burns from CBS News asked Harris.
“It’s an incredibly offensive term, and as someone who has a long-standing relationship of advocacy for our disability community – in fact, I have a whole policy proposal on it that I have been working on for quite some time that we rolled out weeks ago – it’s offensive, and you would think that in the year 2019, people would have a much better understanding of how hurtful a term like that can be, but also the history behind it, which is a history of really ignoring the needs and the realities and the capacity of our disability community,” Harris claimed.
“You didn’t correct him though, did you hear him?”Huey-Burns asked trying to get Harris to explain her actions.
“I heard him talk about the other stuff, and then that came later, and it was not something that I really heard or processed or, you know, in any way condone, that’s for sure,” Harris said.

It seemed like Harris heard him just fine. She likely just doesn’t want to be on record agreeing that Trump’s actions are “mentally retarded.” I guess if he had said ‘racist’ or some other liberal accepted slant it would have been fine. But this just proved how “honest” she is.
