Kamala Harris announced she’s running for President on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
She is the dream candidate of the Democrats’ radical left-wing base because she embodies their absurd identity politics.
But her campaign coming out party was just wrecked by someone she never expected.
Kamala Harris was torn a new one by the gay magazines Washington Blade and Out.
They don’t think Harris is pro-LGBT enough for them.
While attorney general of California, Harris argued (rightly) on behalf of the state to oppose taxpayer funding for sex change surgeries for transgender prisoners.
But now she claims she never agreed with that position and she did it merely out of “obligation.”
Now, in a vain attempt to save face, she’s crawling back to LGBT activists saying she accepts “full responsibility” because she knows she needs their votes in a Democratic Presidential primary.
The Washington Blade reports:
In her first news conference after announcing her 2020 presidential run, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said she takes “full responsibility” for legal briefs as California attorney general seeking to deny gender reassignment surgery for transgender inmates and called for a “better understanding” of needs — medical or otherwise— for transgender people.
Harris made the comments during a news conference Monday at Howard University in D.C. in response to a question from the Washington Blade, asking her about representing the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation in seeking to deny gender reassignment surgery prescribed to two transgender inmates in the California state prison system.
But this raises an important question. If Harris truly didn’t believe in the case she was arguing as attorney general, how effective could she have been?
Democrats running for president are all bending to the will of a handful of LGBT activists.
So you can expect more candidates staking out radical positions like support for taxpayer-funded sex change operations.
But as we reported, the Supreme Court upheld the Trump administration’s ban on transgenders in the military.
Do you think taxpayers should pay for transgender prisoners’ sex change operations?
