Senator Kamala Harris had barely announced that she was running for President when reaction from both sides of the aisle started pouring in. There was a lot of praise, but also a lot of pushback (especially from those who are critics of her work as Attorney General of California and San Francisco’s District Attorney). Here is what people are saying:
Kamala Harris' announcement video is so good it's got GOP rapid response rushing to Twitter to sputter back a weak reply on a federal holiday. https://t.co/pfFlcI1TDW

Think of how well Kamala Harris has performed during Senate hearings. She’s been sharp, prepared and unrelenting. Now imagine her debating undisciplined charlatan Donald Trump. She would dunk all over his ass.

Wow talk about moving to the left…
First, Elizabeth Warren
Then, Julian Castro
Now, Kamala Harris
Who is next? Pol Pot? Mao Zedong?

Enough with the “Kamala Harris is the new Obama” or “Beto is the new Obama”. How about we just say Kamala is the new Kamala? Or Beto is the new Beto? These folks stand on their own.

I disagree strongly with Kamala Harris's politics, I'm on the right, she's on the left, but think about it: It's Martin Luther King Jr Day 2019, and a black woman just announced she's running for President of the United States.
That's pretty cool. That's a big deal.

If you voted for Trump, please don't start tweets by saying Kamala Harris is unqualified to be POTUS. She was a DA, an AG and a Senator. Your guy hosted a reality television show.

Kamala Harris made her career by locking up Black people in the Bay Area. Her track record consists of terrorizing Black communities through the prison industrial complex. She then became the top cop of California. Her track record consists of rampant anti-Blackness.

I’ve met @KamalaHarris. She’s relatable, comfortable in her skin, smart, tough & hard to put in a niche. She’s serious, but laughs easily. She’s to my left on some issues. Some D’s tell me she’s not left enough. She pretty much destroys “women are called dislikable” sexism charge https://t.co/5N7yazvznF

Whether Kamala Harris is your first choice or not, you have a responsibility to push back against the misrepresentations and lies that the fringe left, the right, and the bots are spreading about her. Let’s not allow the bottom feeders to do to Kamala what they did to Hillary.
