On Thursday’s episode of the “Ben Shapiro Show,” Ben Shapiro discuss the rhetorical beating that Kamala Harris received from Joe Biden and Tulsi Gabbard, during the debate. Video and partial transcript below:
Finally, we got to the moment when Harris gets destroyed. So, Harris has sort of been sitting in the background. She starts off the debate, she basically gets clocked on health care, and then things really go wrong for her. So, Harris jumps into the middle of the racial fray, and she’s urged to do so by the CNN moderators. They say, “You know you had this whole thing last time around about federal busing.” And Kamala Harris jumps in and she attacks Biden on busing again. And you’re about to see things go so wrong for her. This is like watching a car wreck in real time, and it was pretty delicious because Kamala Harris deserves every bit of what she’s about to receive, from both Biden and Tulsi Gabbard. It’s brutal here. Here’s Kamala Harris leading it off. Remember, she started it, and when you start a fight, you got to finish the fight. She started the fight; she did not finish this fight.
Here is Harris going after Biden:
HARRIS: When Vice President Biden was in the United States Senate, working with segregationist to oppose busing, which was the vehicle by which we would integrate America’s public schools. Had I been in the United States Senate at that time, I would have been completely on the other side of the aisle. And let’s be clear about this. If those segregationists had their way, I would not be a member of the United States Senate. Cory Booker would not be a member of the United States Senate and Barack Obama would not have been in the position, to nominate him to the title he now holds.
Okay, so without federal busing Barack Obama wouldn’t have been president. Sure sure… Then Biden comes right back at her and he points out, uh lady, you support the exact same busing policy that I do. And you’re a hypocrite.
BIDEN: When Senator Harris was the attorney general for eight years, in the state of California, there were two of the most segregated school districts in the country in Los Angeles and in San Francisco. And she did not, like I didn’t see, a single solitary time, she brought a case against them to desegregate. And secondly, she also was in a situation where she had a police department, when she was there, that in fact was abusing people’s rights.
Okay, So Biden sounds a little slow on the attack. So, this is a damaging moment for Harris. But then, apparently, he deputizes Tulsi Gabbard. They went in the back room somewhere and he swore her in. And suddenly this turned into the entire revenge montage from Tombstone because [of] Tulsi. Oh, my g-d. Tulsi Gabbard brings the hammer about as hard as I’ve seen someone bring a hammer in a presidential debate, since Chris Christie went after Marco Rubio.
This is brutal. She takes a chainsaw to Kamala Harris, rhetorically speaking, obviously. She just viciously murders her. This is the meme from the Simpson, “Stop it, stop it.” He’s already dead. Watch Tulsi Gabbard go after Kamala Harris and Kamala Harris collapse, just like the end of the first part of the “Avengers.” It’s unreal.
GABBARD: I want to bring the conversation back to the broken criminal justice system that is disproportionately negatively impacting black and brown people all across this country to date. Senator Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she’ll be a prosecutor president. But I’m deeply concerned about this record. There are too many examples to cite, but she put over1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations, and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana. She blocked evidence from an innocent man on death row, until the courts forced her to do so. She kept people in prison, past their sentences, to use them as cheap labor for the state of California. And she fought to keep the bail system in place, that impacts poor people in the worst kind of way.
The bottom line is, Senator Harris, when you are in a position to make a difference and an impact in these people’s lives, you did not. And worse yet, in the case of those who were on death row, innocent people, you actually blocked evidence from being revealed that would have freed them — until you were forced to do so. There is no excuse for that. And the people who suffered under your reign as prosecutor, you owe them an apology. Yes, or no.
And Kamala Harris, she has the same tick as Hillary Clinton does which is that when she gets caught out, she starts to laugh. And you can see her starting to laugh right there. It gets awkward, she starts to smile.
And I don’t know, have you guys seen that series on Amazon called “Patriot.” Well, one of the opening scenes, one of the characters is standing next to another character on an empty street. Then a truck starts to pass by. And he just puts his hand behind the other characters back and throws him in front of the bus. Goes and throws him right in front of a truck. [That’s] Tulsi Gabbard to Kamala Harris, Brutal.
