There are two go-to evasive maneuvers for liberals when they are backed into a corner with no real response or solution–cry “racism,” or blame the Russians.
Wednesday night, after Kamala Harris was eviscerated on stage and afterward in an interview by Tulsi Gabbard, the Harris campaign was left tweeting a humorously lame charge that “The Russian propaganda machine … is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat.”
What?! That’s all you’ve got?
Ian Sams is the national press secretary for Harris. After the debate, he tweeted out a link to a February article with a lede of: “The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat.”
Reporters writing their stories with eyes on the modern-day assignment desk of Twitter, read this:

Is that the smell of desperation in the air?
The crowd repeatedly cheered Hawaii Rep. Gabbard’s attack’s on Harris Wednesday night at the 2020 Democrat Debate in Detroit that focused on the California senator’s record as a prosecutor and state attorney general.
There’s no doubt Gabbard came out on top in the exchange which had Harris dodging the charges raised by the congresswoman that included:
- “She blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from Death Row.”
- “She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.”
- “She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California.”
- “She fought to keep cash bail system in place that impacts poor people in the worst kind of way.”
Essentially, Harris replied that she was proud of her record, at one point her voice was cracking as she seemed to be on the verge of tears.
After the debate, sitting in a CNN interview, Gabbard continued her attack on Harris, pointing out, “She never answered the question. She never addressed the issues that I brought up. There are examples that have been widely reported and documented. I think the people deserve answers.”
“Even she said tonight, a few times, how proud she is of her record,” Gabbard continued. “Yet there are too many people in California who have directly suffered. Families who have been torn apart. People who have individually been harmed because of the decisions that she made as attorney general.”
“People like Kamala Harris need to be held accountable for their record–not for something she said or did 50 years ago. This is something she did in her last job before she was elected a U.S. senator,” Gabbard declared.

Harris became a temporary far-leftist hero after the brutal race-baiting zinger she dumped on Joe Biden during the first round of Dem debates.
Judging from the reaction on Twitter, with “#KamalaHarrisDestroyed” trending, she didn’t fare nearly as well in the second:
Russia Russia Russia.

Tulsi is a Russian spy?
You’re actually going with that? Seriously?

oh for crying out loud. Everything you don’t like is always “the Russians did it!”.
Why aren’t reporters reporting on Kamala Harris’ horrendous record?

Kamala Harris said she significantly changed the Criminal Justice System in California. Yeah… she changed it by having men, especially black men locked up in droves! #KamalaHarrisDestroyed

#KamalaHarrisDestroyed knows how Biden feels. She should remember, when you point 1 finger at someone, 4 are pointing back at you.
