Kamala Harris – Caricature by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original
This is just gross.
Kamala Harris, who got demolished in last week’s Democratic debate, is now fundraising off the dead less than 24 hours after two mass shootings took place. This was sent out before we even had any real facts about how the guns were obtained.
Disgustingly, the subject of the email was “No More Thoughts and Prayers.”
What’s worse, offering thoughts and prayers after a tragedy, or fundraising off it?

The names of the dead had not even been released yet before Harris’ campaign pushed this email out touting her ability to take action as President. This mimic’s Beto O’Rourke’s egomaniacal media blitz this morning, where he blamed President Trump for the shootings and riffed on how racist he is.
Even if a person is so nakedly partisan and deluded as to think these acts are the fault of someone other than the shooters, now is not the time to mouth off in order to score political points. Yet, that’s exactly what these 2020 candidates are doing. They are fundraising and attempting to gain media exposure standing on the dead bodies of the victims. It’s obscene.
