At last night’s debate, Sen. Kamala Harris asked Sen. Elizabeth Warren to join her in calling for the president of the United States to be banned from Twitter. Warren responded to the invitation the same way she did earlier this month, with a simple, “no.”
“I don’t just want to push Donald Trump off Twitter. I want to push him out of the White House. That’s our job,” Harris said at Tuesday night’s debate. She then implored Warren, “So join me -- Join me in saying his Twitter account should be shut down.” Warren responded brusquely, “no," and an incredulous Harris replied, “No? Wow.”

Elizabeth Warren just embarrassed Kamala Harris by refusing to entertain her crazy idea of calling for the President of the United States to be Banned from Twitter.
Harris has repeatedly called for the president to be banned from Twitter. In early October, she retweeted Trump, adding a comment for the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, asking the co-founder of the platform to “do something” about the president’s annoying ability to communicate with his followers.
Asked earlier this month by a reporter if she believed Twitter should ban the president from their platform, Warren gave the same terse answer, “no.”

Harris likely wishes her other political rivals could be banned as well, like Tulsi Gabbard. In a previous CNN debate, Gabbard attacked Harris's record as a prosecutor, claiming the senator was partly responsible for the so-called "mass incarceration" of certain minorities. Gabbard’s attack has been credited with Harris’s plunge in the polls, a plunge from which the candidate has been unable to recover.
