Democrats seem to be experts at spitting into the wind.
Senator Kamala Harris attempted to zing President Trump on his border wall plans but ended up spotlighting her own party’s ineptitude.
The California Democrat called out funding of Trump’s “unrealistic” wall between the U.S./Mexico border as a “gross misuse of taxpayer money” in a tweet on Wednesday.
Funding Trump’s unrealistic border wall would be a gross misuse of taxpayer money.

Harris apparently didn’t see that rake she stepped on when making her remark, but others sure did.
Yet using citizens taxes to pay for illegal aliens is????

You’re from a state that’s using taxpayer dollars to defend people who are here illegally. You definition of “gross misuse of taxpayer money” might not be the same as the rest of America.

So’s the $25 billion per year, just in California, that is spend on illegal aliens.

Actor James Woods had no problem reminding Harris of a simple truth as others took to the accounting books.

Funding Planned Parenthood is a gross misuse of taxpayer money.
Funding a wall that was legally passed by Congress for construction 12 years ago is not. https://t.co/ZpTZGVFlDB

California State Chairman for the Republican National Hispanic Assembly and Latinos for Trump founder, Marco Gutierrez, blasted Harris in a tweet vowing the wall would be built. “You can take that to the bank with @NancyPelosi,” he said.
Is this what you are going to be talking about tomorrow in Sacramento?! I am warning you! —no funny business! We will be watching your every move specially now that we are in a roll opting out of #SB54! The wall will be build! You can take that to the bank with @NancyPelosi

Many others were happy to hold up the mirror for the potential 2020 Democratic presidential contender whose own state is currently facing over one trillion dollars in outstanding debt.
Suddenly a Democrat concerned with spending

I’m just amazed that she acknowledged the fact that it is taxpayer money. Most liberals seem to consider it their money.

A gross misuse of taxpayer money is paying a salary to a “senator” who does not believe that the citizens of her own country should come before those who sneak into her country illegally, yet here we are…#BuildTheWall #AmericaFirst https://t.co/4arvtVec3Q
