Last night, President Trump went back to his old ways and publicly trashed California Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris for her powerful dissection of his Attorney General William Barr during yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
On Wednesday, Trump complained that Harris was “probably very nasty” during her questioning while being interviewed for FOX Business, going on to slam Harris and her fellow Democratic candidates Amy Klobuchar (D-MIN) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) for holding Barr’s feet to the fire.
“You have three of them running against me, and they’re up there ranting and raving like lunatics, frankly. They don’t care about this. They’re just looking for political points” said Trump.
CNN spoke to Senator Harris to find out what she thought about being labeled with the moniker that Trump famously used to smear Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election — and what will come as no surprise to the rest of us, she didn’t care at all, instead laughing and firing back with a statement that should send fear into the heart of her insulter.
We have a president of the United States whose primary interest — I think that has been clear as a result of what we know as a result of the Mueller report — his primary interest has been to obstruct justice. My primary interest is to pursue justice. You can call that whatever name you want, but I think that’s what the American people want in a leader.

Harris’s eloquent and decisive cross-examination of Attorney General Barr took social media by storm, racking up over four million views in a day and proving to us all once again that she is a force to be reckoned with both in and outside the Senate.
