Harris: I’m Realistic So ‘I’m Not Churning Out Plans Like a Factory’

Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) appeared to take a shot at 2020 rival Elizabeth Warren on Friday, saying that because she’s realistic her campaign is “not churning out plans like a factory.”

Harris, a leading contender for the Democratic nomination, was a guest on “The Breakfast Club” radio show, where co-host DJ Envy said the Democrats sounded like Oprah Winfrey sometimes on the debate stage. He compared their lofty promises of canceled student loan debt and free health care to Winfrey shouting, “You get a car! You get a car!”

Pelosi’s House of Pain

Not so long ago—as recently as the cover of the March 2019 Rolling Stone, in fact—they seemed like the best of friends. I’m referring to Nancy Pelosi and the members of “The Squad”: Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and (not pictured) Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley. They shared some good times.

Biden: ‘I Respect No Borders’

Former Vice President Joe Biden said he would “respect no borders” when it came to foreign policy, while speaking Thursday at an event in New York City.

“Working cooperatively with other nations to share our values and goals doesn’t make America, as it seems to imply in this administration, suckers,” Biden said. “It makes us more secure.
