Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris is campaigning in New Hampshire Monday, and when she wasn’t rendered speechless when asked if she still believes the alleged Jussie Smollett attack was a “modern-day lynching,” she was speaking some “truths” to the audience.
Sen. Kamala Harris: "We have failed to put the resources into our public education system, and instead we are putting tons of money into a system of mass incarceration…Let's speak these truths." https://t.co/OBIcnxCLBf pic.twitter.com/2PZYBnzBJx

If Harris has a problem with the criminal justice system, she can send a thank-you note to President Trump at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for lobbying for and signing the FIRST STEP Act.
But her speech decrying the “tons of money” put into a system of mass incarceration is a stunning display of self-unawareness.

Is @KamalaHarris aware of the fact that she’s Kamala Harris?

Ummmm….I know Kamala isn’t that smart, but I’m pretty sure she remembers what she did for a living before she got her Senate seat. pic.twitter.com/ewAHKKM7i6

She thinks the left is too stupid to see her hypocrisy there. Why does she think she'll get a pass for this when she has been the one to put so many away? Plain old hubris?

If only Kamala were once in a position to keep "innocent people" from being incarcerated….. wait?

If anyone knows the interworkings of the system of mass incarcerations, it's her.
— Mother B (@mabennett1982) February 18, 2019
Seriously? She expects that people don’t remember her past career or something? Didn’t she deny early releases because she wanted the free labor the inmates did?

She should know. She was a major tool in that program. Holding on to prisoners for their cheap labor.

1) @KamalaHarris put a lot of people in jail as DA. So she was part of the problem she is now complaining about 2) we do need more $$ in education after watching @AOC botch European History 101 with her Berlin Wall analogy

In 2018, California put over $60 billion towards K-12 education. In that same year, California put $15.5 billion towards corrections and rehabilitation. That's four times as much towards education. And that's only state level.

Sounds like she is pro school choice…who knew?

Kamala Harris either lied about smoking weed only in college or she lied about listening to Snoop Dogg and Tupac while smoking weed. Which is it? https://t.co/cSDMiqTYCJ
