Sen. Kamala Harris of California is running for president. Anyone who doesn’t see that is either blind or willfully ignorant.
And while Harris has not officially announced her intention to seek the White House in 2020, she has already begun ingratiating herself to the far left of her party. A major example of this political posturing came from Harris as she compared the tactics of ICE to the KKK during a confirmation hearing.
In a grandstanding moment sure to live on for as long as Harris is in office, she goes on and on, as she tries to get Ronald Vitiello to agree that ICE is comparable to the KKK. She refuses to let the man answer, acting as a parent trying to scold a child as she talks about “a perception” that the tactics of ICE are like those of the racist KKK.
Check out of Harris’ moment:
This is ridiculous and embarrassing. Kamala Harris browbeats Ronald Vitiello trying to get him to "admit" that ICE is perceived the same as the KKK. pic.twitter.com/kCZl3l2KFs

However, Harris was somehow surprised that her own words garnered so much attention and then attempted to blame Fox News for “creating” outrage.
Well, Trish Regan, a host on Fox Business Network wasn’t having it. She responded perfectly to Harris playing the victim after getting blow back for comparing ICE to the KKK.
Sen. Kamala Harris has an issue w/ my commentary where I criticized her for saying there's a perception that #ICE is somehow akin to the KKK. She claims Fox is using distortion tactics & that Fox is manufacturing outrage. No Senator, YOU ARE! #TrishRegan #TrishIntel pic.twitter.com/B9AjIE9ytn
