Harris Blames Trump — Says It Was His Tweets That Created the ‘Send Her Back’ Chants

Is anyone surprised that one of the 2020 Dem candidates is slamming the president for this?

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) (shown above at far right) told CNN’s Jake Tapper it was obvious that the chants of “send her back” — referring to Rep. Ilham Omar (D-Minn.) — were created by the president’s tweets and not the audience at President Donald Trump’s MAGA rally in Greenville, North Carolina, the other day.

“Send her back” was a response to Omar’s contempt toward our country, in my view.

“Send her back” was a response to this socialist Democrat’s contempt of Israel and Christians.

“Send her back” was a way to let her know how wrong she is — and that she needs to educate herself if she wants to continue representing her district, since probably most people there do not share her beliefs.

Said Harris, “I do think they’re empty words, Jake. You know, the chant was created, not by the crowd, but by the president’s tweets. And that’s obvious that it’s — you know, it’s really not a debatable point and I think it’s just … clearly not a sign of real leadership.”

“I think you have mentioned it,” she added. “Your guests have mentioned it. Contrast it with a real American leader like John McCain, who during the campaign in 2008 — he stood up, he spoke up.”

“He was, you know, he understood, as an American hero, that the voice of someone who wants to be, much less is the president of the United States, must be a voice that is about elevating discourse that is about speaking to our better selves. And this president just keeps finding new lows. And you know, I would like to say it’s shocking, but at some point — it’s sadly predictable,” she said.

So much for the keen perception we can expect if Harris ever became president.

No, Candidate Harris, the chant was created by the crowd — and, if I were you, I wouldn’t count on a single vote from any of them.

It was created by the dishonest media, which for days had truncated Trump’s original (and perfectly reasonable) tweet down to two words: “Go back.”

This is par for the course for these rabidly anti-Trump media, in my opinion.

They’ve been doing this non-stop for three years or more now.

Defending any of the four radical freshman lawmakers — the group known as the “squad” — at this point does nothing more than indicate agreement with them, their politics, their tactics, their negative patriotism, their leftist argumentation, and their egregious use of sex and skin color when it suits them.

Suddenly Republicans have stopped being moralists and started playing politics — while the Democrats are still playing politics and pretending to be moralists.
