Today on Twitchy we’ve been sifting through a lot of the wreckage left behind after CNN aired five Democratic town halls in a row. We learned that Israel’s a great ally but its current government is racist, and we learned that the Boston Marathon bomber shouldn’t lose his right to vote just because he killed some people in a terrorist act.
CNN’s token “conservative” Ana Navarro has tweeted that she “really, really, really” likes Harris, but we’re not sure how anyone could decide that when all Harris does when pinned down by a policy question is to say that there needs to be a “conversation.”
You might remember that at an earlier CNN town hall, Harris had said she was all for the elimination of private health insurance in favor of Medicare for All … before walking that back less than 24 hours later, when an adviser told the press that “she would also be open to the more moderate health reform plans, which would preserve the industry.”
But during Monday night’s CNN town hall she was again hit with the question of Medicare for All, which she said she supports … which is odd, because it would require the elimination of the private health insurance industry.
Kamala Harris’s face when she finds out her #MedicareForAll bill would end private health insurance is PRICELESS.

Good thing we’re having this “conversation” — it’s cleared up so much.

Kamala Harris apparently is just now finding out what's in the socialized medicine plan she supports.
Yes, @KamalaHarris. The "Medicare-for-all" plan you support would force 200 million Americans to "move on" and eliminate all private insurance

Also, Harris says that people would be able to keep their doctors bc 91% currently accept Medicare. But Medicare exists in system in which docs can shift costs to higher-paying private insurance, which wouldn't be case once new government plan takes over https://t.co/hlPz5FqEpS

Guess she’d be a “learning on the job” type of president.
Translation: "I co-sponsored a bill that sounded really good in the media and never read a thing in it."

I am absolutely shocked how underwhelming she is. I thought she would be the eventual Dem nominee but she is as blah and wishy washy as you can get

Wow, never thought I’d say this but good for Don Lemon

The best is her segue “and lets be clear about it.” Not a single thing she said in that answer was clear.

I wish someone would reply: "You said "Let's be clear," but… you weren't "clear."

Didn’t she say that private insurance would be eliminated? Is anyone gonna ask about the jobs that would go bye bye? Are we all going to learn to code?

It’s like when they asked her about Smollette. ???

It was a modern-day lynching, clear as day!
Oh, but look, you can get glasses and a hearing aid. The biggest seller is a free abortion, woo hoo!

Oh and at the end she added "More Planned Parenthood" paid for "WTF" ?

As president, Kamala Harris vows to use executive actions on guns…because that worked out so well for Obama https://t.co/bhX1qXo88i
