We all knew the Democrats had it out for President Donald Trump before he was elected. They were attempting to come up with ways to oust him before he was even sworn into office. If that isn't the definition of "Trump Derangement Syndrome," then I have no clue what is.
For whatever reason, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) decided to share a video of a pathetic speech she gave her team following the 2016 election, when it became clear Trump beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. You know, the very election Democrats are still in denial about.
In the speech, she said her nephew and godson, Alexander, came up to her with tears in his eyes.
"I said ‘Come here little man, what’s going on?' And he looked up at me, I swear to God, and he looked up me and he said ‘I don’t want Trump to win. Did he win?’" she recounted. "And he’s crying, and I mean, so the tears of joy we shed when we elected Barack Obama, and then my little godson’s tears tonight cause we might have elected Donald Trump. This is some sh*t.”
Harris told her team they needed to "be prepared to fight and to roll up our sleeves and fight."
It was at that moment that she made it very, very clear that she was paving the way to run for president.
"I need you guys for what we're gonna need to do now going forward 'cause I think our campaign is actually not over," Harris said. "but it's a different kind of campaign. It's not to win an office but it's going to be a campaign to fight for everything that motivated us to run for this office [Senate] to begin with."
Harris cited various policy topics, like criminal justice reform, climate change and immigration as motivations for Democrats. Fast forward three years later and what happened? The FIRST Step Act has passed thanks to Trump. Even CNN's Van Jones gave Trump credit and chided the Democrats for failing to act on the legislation that they've typically considered in their wheelhouse. Bet that's a hard pill for her to swallow now.
"This sh*t is now really on the line," Harris said. "There is no guarantee that we are any closer than ever before and we may actually be further behind."
The senator compared herself to a superhero who is out there fighting the big bad villain Trump, because, you know, orange man bad.
"So I actually, 'cause he loves superheroes, I started to say, 'You know how like your superheroes, when they're facing a challenge and the mean guys are coming at 'em, what do they do?' and he said 'They fight back,' and I said 'Yeah, so we have to be like superheroes and it's okay to have emotion. Superheroes, all good ones have emotion, but we're gonna have to fight.'"
Kamala, do us all a favor: pretend to be Wonder Woman and fly off to fix your own state before you try to "rescue" the rest of America. Last we checked, your state is literally going down in flames.
After we found out Trump was going to win, there was no question that justice was on the line. I told my team we had to fight. And that’s what I’ve done. pic.twitter.com/d0gmtdWYtL— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) November 9, 2019
