Kirsten Gillibrand might be gone, but her ineptitude and “not-ready-for-primetime” spirit are alive and well in the 2020 Democrat race. Thanks in large part to Kamala “Well Said” Harris.
While Kirsten waited sometimes years before flip-flopping and back-peddling, Kamala can’t go 24 hours without having her ass handed to her on a platter then scrambling to minimize the damage.
The latest Kamala Harris back-peddle came yesterday after video from a Friday campaign event showed her giggling like a schoolgirl after an audience member called President Trump mentally retarded.
The video leaves no question that Kamala heard what he said and instantly responded with delighted laughter and an emphatic “Well said. Well said.”

Naturally, the perpetually offended were mortified that Kamala found it so funny. And had Kamala simply apologized for laughing and saying “Well said,” it would be no big deal.
But because “Well Said” Kamala is so monumentally bad at this, she decided to flat-out lie and claim she didn’t hear the guy say “mentally retarded President.”
She tweeted this embarrassing claim:
”When my staff played the video from my town hall yesterday, it was upsetting. I didn’t hear the words the man used in that moment, but if I had I would’ve stopped and corrected him. I’m sorry. That word and others like it aren’t acceptable. Ever.
She would have stopped and corrected him …
… if she wasn’t too busy giggling up a storm and saying “Well said. Tee hee hee. Well said.”
So either Kamala is lying about not hearing him.
Or, she lied to the guy when she reacted to what he said even though she didn’t hear what he said.
Those are your only two choices.
Given Kamala’s track record thus far in this campaign, I’m thinking she heard him, thought it was funny, laughed and enjoyed the moment, then when the backlash started, scrambled to excuse away her own reaction.
Because that’s what Kamala does.
Kamala’s fundamental problem is simple. As I’ve said from the beginning of her campaign, Kamala is not ready nor is she qualified to seek national office. In addition to never having run in a competitive race, Kamala lacks the savvy and quick-thinking necessary to endure the spotlight of a national campaign.
Remember her “deer-in-the-headlights” reaction to a question about Jussie Smollett faking his hate crime? Kamala’s only talent (aside from putting people in prison) is feigning ignorance.
What she doesn’t have a talent for is campaigning for national office.
Kamala’s from California. She isn’t used to being held to account for the things she says on the campaign trail. Which is precisely why she instantly backtracks once her sweeping statements cause backlash.
Running for statewide office in California means never having to say you’re sorry or you misspoke. The largely Democrat state will happily vote for a kumquat if it has a D after its name.
The only thing “Well Said” Kamala has going for her is a large segment of the news media want her to be the nominee. Without that support, she’d have about as much traction as an octogenarian on a slippery sidewalk.
The Kamala fans in the media will quickly sweep this flagrant lie and clumsy excuse-making under the rug just to keep her afloat.
Kamala can lie about the incident confident in the knowledge that the media will provide cover fire. She knows the same news media that has for over three years perpetrated the lie that Donald Trump mocked a reporter’s disability will unquestioningly believe Kamala’s flimsy excuse.
The larger question is will Democrat primary voters get sick of this back-peddler and her incessant need to lie?
