Kamala Harris’ Press Secretary blamed an unlikely source for the candidate’s poor debate performance this week; saying the ‘Russia Propaganda Machine’ was behind Tulsi Gabbard’s recent rise in popularity.
“Reporters writing their stories with eyes on the modern-day assignment desk of Twitter, read this: ‘The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat,’” tweeted Ian Sams.

“The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 U.S. election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat who earlier this month declared her intention to run for president in 2020,” reported NBC News last February.
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard called-out Sen. Kamala Harris during Wednesday night’s Democratic debate; telling reporters the top-tier candidate needs to be “held accountable” for her record.
“People like Kamala Harris need to be held accountable for their record, not for something that she said or did 50 years ago. This is something that she did in her last job before she was elected as a U.S. Senator,” said Gabbard.

Sen. Harris has risen to second place in a series of recent polls, most notably in her home state of California.
“Sen. Kamala Harris of California has catapulted into a virtual tie with former Vice President Joe Biden in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination — and she’s made significant inroads with black voters — following her widely praised debate performance last week, a new national poll released Tuesday showed,” reports NBC News.
“The latest Quinnipiac University poll of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters showed Biden with 22 percent support and Harris with 20 percent — a double-digit jump for her since the university’s previous poll last month,” adds the survey.
President Trump weighed-in Tuesday on the 2020 Democratic presidential primary; saying the “Crew” looks “easier to debate” than his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton.
“As most people are aware, according to the Polls, I won EVERY debate, including the three with Crooked Hillary Clinton, despite the fact that in the first debate, they modulated the sound on me, and got caught. This crew looks somewhat easier than Crooked, but you never know?” posted the Commander-in-Chief on social media.

“Just go to a random [Trump] tweet, and just look at the followers. They’ll all be like: ‘Guns, God, ‘Merica,’ and with the American flag, the cross, something. Who says that? Who talks like that? For sure it’s a bot,” claimed a Direct Messaging Engineer.
“So, can you get rid of them?” asked the undercover journalist.
“Yeah. You just delete them. The problem is there are hundreds of thousands of them,” he added.

LIBERAL CIVIL WAR: Bernie Suggests CLINTON CAMPAIGN Hid Russia Meddling Info
Former Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders raised eyebrows throughout liberal circles Wednesday, telling a local Vermont radio station that Hillary Clinton may know more about Russian Facebook activity during the 2016 presidential race than she publicly admits.
The Socialist Senator was speaking with Vermont’s Public Radio when he was asked to comment on recent revelations that Russian agents were seeking to “sow division” between his campaign and Hillary’s team; suddenly slamming his Democratic rival’s handling of the issue.
“I did not know Russian bots were promoting my campaign,” Sanders said. “In the midst of all of this, I was out campaigning very hard for Hillary Clinton. So, let me leave it at that.”
“If you and your campaign knew there was Russian meddling and it was trying to sow division, why not take that directly to your supporters?” asked radio host Jane Lindholm.
“They had more information about this than we did. And at this point we were working with them,” Sanders fired-back. “We knew what we knew, when we knew it. And that’s about all I can say.”
