I mean HOLY CRAP. She doesn’t even try to hide it, does she?
Kamala Harris is completely and totally FULL OF CRAP.
Just a few days ago, Kamala Harris SHREDDED Joe Biden about his views on bussing.
"It is amazing that he wasn't prepared. And his response was worse than she possibly could have imagined" @dtsmith_sydney on @KamalaHarris criticising @JoeBiden for his historic opposition to bussing: https://t.co/KeJ9aKLQp0 pic.twitter.com/I5YxWWa1Xn

Kamala told a story about a little girl in California who had been bussed to school.
“And that little girl was me,” Harris said. “So, I will tell you that on this subject, it cannot be an intellectual debate among Democrats. We have to take it seriously. We have to act swiftly.”
This little performance cost Biden SIGNIFICANT points in the polls – and saw support for Kamala leap.
Well, it was just that: a performance.
Why? Well, Kamala has now revealed she actually AGREES with him on the very same topic she ripped him to shreds over.
According to Daily Wire:
On Wednesday, in Iowa, Harris appeared to change her position supporting mandated busing by telling a crowd that busing should be a policy considered by individual school districts to help integrate students.
“I think of busing as being in the toolbox of what is available and what can be used for the goal of desegregating America’s schools,” Harris said in response to a question about whether she supported federally mandated busing, The Associated Press reported.
Asked to clarify, Harris said, “I believe that any tool that is in the toolbox should be considered by a school district.”
On Friday, Biden laughed at Harris’ position change during an interview with CNN host Chris Cuomo.
“It’s so easy to go back 30, 40, 50 years and take a context and take it completely out of context,” Biden said, according to Fox News. “I get all this information about other people’s past and what they’ve done and, you know, I’m just not gonna go there… we should be debating what we do from here.”
“For example, this whole thing about race and busing,” he added. “Well, I think if you take a look, our positions aren’t any different as we’re finding out.”
When Cuomo mentioned Harris’ position that busing should be “a tool” that can help integrate, Biden laughed, “Yeah, well, look at my record.”
The Washington Post took a look at Biden and Harris’ records, and found nuanced and subtle differences. Biden in the ‘70s thought quotas for minorities were a “racist concept.” He now says that he supported voluntary busing or court-ordered busing, and simply opposed federally mandated busing.
Harris previously supported federally mandated busing, but not today. They are essentially on the same page, which means Harris’ planned attack on Biden was simply for attention and not over any real policy disagreement.
If Biden is smart, he’ll use this against her in the next debate.
Biden, however, is not a smart man.
So we’ll see…
