"Kamala Harris Tries and Fails to Make a Trump Twitter Ban an Important Election Issue/Harris repeatedly urged Warren to join her calls for Trump to be de-platformed, only to be met with a blunt response: 'No.'"

Headline at The Daily Beast. Watch the video to see how weak this made Kamala Harris look (and obviously, she's badly wrong on the merits and wrong in a way that shows she has dangerous instincts for a person to be trusted with great power):

‘has dangerous instincts for a person to be trusted with great power‘

Evergreen, as Taranto would say about this lot...

David Begley said...

The skills that allowed KH to climb the political ladder in CA won’t work at a national level. I could, however, see her as Joe’s VP. Biden is an older married man and KH has experience servicing guys like that.

I'm on twitter and I believe donald should be held to the same standards as everyone else!

he would be suspended if he were so Jack Dorsey is likely in his pocket

Mike Sylwester said...

Kamala needs to stick to her main issue, which is that ICE is the KKK.

Amadeus 48 said...

Hmmm...Harris is done. Warren is scary, too.

Tulsi is a looker. She is the most like Trump on foreign involvement, but I am not sure what I think of Trump on that score. Peace and love, Tulsi.

I'm for Bill Clinton, but he can't run. Jimmy Carter is available though.

On the Star Trek:TNG re-run yesterday, the empathic metamorph was named Kamala. It elicited a chuckle from me -- because that Kamala was so much better than Ms Harris.

Birches said...

Pushing this stupidity just makes Warren look better. Are they all trying to get her the nomination?

iowan2 said...

Harris got caught not knowing what the answer would be. This is not a big thing. It does expose her naivete.
The proper way to make her point would have been to back channel 3 or 4 on the stage days before the debate and get buy in from them to bring it up during the debate. She would have gotten the buy in, or learned she was on an island alone. Great leaders do this intuitively, Good leaders can learn the skill. Dilettantes stand on stage in front of millions exposing them selves the fool.

Howard said...

If Warren wins, I hope she taps Harris for AG

Bay Area Guy said...

Both women are dangerous morons -- Harris the more dangerous of the two. Like most leftists, she doesn't believe in Free Spech.Suspending Trump's Twitter account? It must be working well.

Wince said...

Another year of this shit?

Totalitarians gotta . . . totalitarianate.

Bill, Republic of Texas said...

Harris is a totalitarian thug. the Twitter ban is her least offensive idea. Last night she said she wants to imprison pharmaceutical executives.

wild chicken said...

Twitter has just deplatformed Weihan Zhang, so that.

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

Harris is a frightening totalitarian. It gives normal Americans a little hope that this horrible creature isn't rising in the polls.

Michael K said...

Howard loves AGs that try to stop payments for wrong convictions.

& killing off all free market health insurance to force us all onto the government plan.

Insider tapes reveal that Jeff Zucker wanted to make Kamala's "Ban Trump from Twitter" a major story.

Also ,while CNN employees do agree that Biden and his son's dealing smell bad, Jeff Zucker made sure that was not mentioned on CNN.

Susan said...

Harris is all about policing everyone which will not go over well with Antifa and their enablers wing.

Unfortunately, she is about policing without the Protect and Serve part. That won't help her with the law and order wing.

Lock 'em all up I guess and let the courts sort 'em out.

Wilbur said...

Kamala, why the long face?

Wow. She looked pathetic and out of her league during that exchange. Warren just ignores her challenges to "Join with me", brushing her aside with a brusque "No".

Harris looked like she couldn't believe it. If that's her skill as a lawyer on display, she should be ashamed.

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

Howard's favorite totalitarian.

Kamala Harris’s Offices Fought Payments to Wrongly Convicted

Paul Snively said...

The most striking thing about the Democratic presidential field is that they're all batshit insane, so often in non-overlapping ways. Harris is batshit insane on free speech; Warren (among many others) is batshit insane on business and economics more generally; etc.

Freder Frederson said...

(and obviously, she's badly wrong on the merits and wrong in a way that shows she has dangerous instincts for a person to be trusted with great power)

While I agree with you on this, why is Trump's desire to loosen up libel laws any less dangerous

John henry said...

I'd actually love to see Twitter ban PDJT. Make them live up to their own rules. Why should he get away with violating Twitter's nebulous code when I can't? Or couldn't if I ever used Twitter?

Then, 2 minutes after Twitter bans him, TrumBlog at Whitehouse.gov goes live with PDJT making Tweetlike posts.

And PDJT mirrors all his blog posts, and perhaps some original content to Gab, Parler, Mastodon, Minds and the other Twitter like app I can never remember.

Twitter's traffic drops by 50% and revenues drop by 90%.

Yeh, yeh, yeh, ban PDJT from Twitter. Thow him into that briar patch.

John Henry

So, the tweets are working!

William said...

Well, it's a start, but what about the State of the Union Address. More like State of the Divisive Rhetoric Address. He should clearly be barred from assaulting the ears of Congress and the American people with that racist agitprop. That speech is obstruction of justice. The Sargent at Arms should arrest Trump the moment he steps into the halls of Congress. Then the leaders of the House Select Impeachment Committee after a brief but fair trial presided over by Kamala Harris should beat him to death to honor the norms of our Constitution and preserve our Republic.

Dave Begley said...

Tulsi is an absolute knockout. I've met her in person and have a photo with her. She should play the President in the movies. Too bad I don't have a part for her in "Frankenstein, Part II.

chickelit said...

Harris needs to heed common sense and deplatform herself from future debates. Also, who is funding her and egging her on?

MayBee said...

I just think it's funny she wants Trump's Twitter account banned in the same Democrat world that wanted it to be illegal for Trump to block people from his Twitter account.

Martha said...

Harris lied. The El Paso shooter clearly stated Trump did not influence his actions.

tommyesq said...

Warren won't take mone from big tech executives, big pharma executives...

Why does feel like a weasel word allowing her to take money from PAC's supported by big business?

tommyesq said...

"What I'm talking about is the grave injustice when rules apply to some but not equally to all" says the former prosecutor as she demands that a single individual be banned from Twitter. These people do not understand irony.

Char Char Binks said...

Harris wants to deny 65 million people access to communication with their president because they’re too powerful.

respectful question for sunsong?
Are you such a moronic idiot, that you must be Igna?

serious question for the rest of you?
how long would it take for twitter to be supplemented by a replacement if they rejected free speech and expelled the President of the United States?

bleh said...

Can’t stand Kamala Harris. She’s one of those pushy, bitchy women who actually try to be even more pushy and bitchy than they really are because they think it’ll get them respect. She’s always so damn rude — and never in a way that’s smooth or humorous.

I think she’s also playing a role, that of a bitchy prosecutor. But a TV version. She says dumb hokey stuff like “rap sheet” that a real, experienced prosecutor wouldn’t say. Being pushy and bitchy is part of that role.

To me, she’s like nails on a chalkboard.

gilbar said...

John Henry answered my serious question (before i even asked it,) saying...
Then, 2 minutes after Twitter bans him, TrumBlog at Whitehouse.gov goes live with PDJT making Tweetlike posts.

Thanx John Henry! Watch out for that Steam Drill!!

Leland said...

I'm not on Twitter and wouldn't know or care if Trump tweeted except that a few twits get triggered by Trump's tweets. It's like little kids, who continually go see horror movies and then complain how they can't sleep at night because of paranoia. How about you quit going to see movies that scare you? You always have other options, just saying.

Alas, sad that Democrat candidates are outright supporting infringement on the 1st and 2nd Amendments.

Ken B said...

Amadeus48 makes a brilliant suggestion. Who has experience, and is available? Already a registered Democrat. High name recognition?

James Earl Carter III.

Now think how bad a president he was. Really think about it. But but but ... he still seems better than Warren or Sanders or Biden doesn’t he? I am serious.

Char Char Binks said...

Why not dump Trump from Twitter? I'm banned from Twitter, as are countless others like me who have too much power.

traditionalguy said...

The Age of Delusion rolls along in Stepford Wives synch suddenly branding the valuable free speech (that usually conveys the only truth about real issues going on in DC and the world) DISINFORMATION. Which now means "'''exposes our narratives as BS."

Narr said...

KH's main problem (other than the shrewish personality) is that she believes the bullshit, repeated daily for the last 50 years and at every opportunity by frauds like her and her admirers, that a black woman must be twice as good as a white man at her job to get ahead.

Anyone who has spent any time at all in academe or the professions knows what a laughable, self-serving load of steaming crap that is.

Narr
She's a vicious idiot

Deplatforming a community that successfully exposed corruption in government and corporation is one thing. Deplatforming the President would be a noticeable give.

Nichevo said...

If Joe Biden is a stuffed shirt and Beto O'Rourke is an empty suit, and Kamala Harris is a... Stuffed bra? Padded bra? A falsie?
