CNN held two Democratic debates for the presidential hopefuls on Tuesday and Wednesday that featured a spectrum of frontrunners and those that have no shot at winning the nomination.
It was a who’s who of people like Senators Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and former Vice President Joe Biden.
Almost all of them pander but nobody pandered more than Sen. Kamala Harris with her baseball paraphernalia.
Well, we’re still over a year away from the November 2020 election and all any of these Democratic nominees talk about is how much they want President Trump out of the White House.
There are so many candidates who are advocating for his impeachment; it’s the only thing they can agree on. It seems like each one of the candidates have different views on Universal Health Care; meaning that each have their own – some way more aggressive than others.
But there’s a little fakeness pervading the stages of the last CNN debates held on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Some of the candidates are just trying way too hard to be liked and it’s obvious.
The best example is Sen. Kamala Harris who was absolutely owned by Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on Wednesday night when she blasted Harris for her track record as San Francisco District Attorney. Harris locked up approximately 1,500 people for marijuana offenses during her tenure and then Charlemagne the God interviewed her regarding whether she tried the substance and Harris laughed, saying that she had and “I inhaled!” It was straight-up hypocrisy.
Harris wore a Los Angeles Dodgers ball cap to the warm-ups for the last debate, which was a bizarre move because she’s allegedly a San Francisco Giants fan.
ABC reporter Zohreen pointed this out when she tweeted, “Baseball fans may have something to speculate about today [Kamala Hsrris] came to her CNN walk-through in a [Dodgers] cap. Except….she’s is a [San Francisco Giants] fan (interview below). She’s an intentional woman-and so supporters could see this as a signal: “I’m on the winning team.”

She points out in the tweet that Sen. Kamala Harris is on the record for saying her favorite team is “Giants and you got to be loyal to your teams. My heart is big enough to have a definite, you know, pride in the Dodgers if they’re playing a non-Californian team, but it’s the Giants. But my husband is the Dodgers fan, so I guess, but in the household, there’s some equity. Luckily, one of them has been terrible, where the other it’s been good at this point. Yes. And we have that conversation many times.”
Does Harris even know what she’s talking about? That’s not how sports works and she’s probably clueless as to how it works in sports. Every sports team is built into the DNA of fans. There are no other teams but yours and that’s despite what your spouse says.
This kind of pandering is reminiscent of a radio interview Hillary Clinton gave once when an African American radio host asked her what Hillary always carries in her purse everywhere she goes. Clinton emphatically said, “hot sauce!” It was probably the worst pandering to a demographic in recent political history.
