At a town hall event in Reno, Nevada, floundering White House hopeful Kamala Harris was greeted with a resounding “No!” from some in the crowd when she asked if America is ready for her presidency.
“I’m at the stage of the campaign where I’m kind of like, you know, I’m just gonna engage in real talk. I don’t want to waste your time with anything else,” Harris cackled in an awkward attempt to be “real.” “Let’s just have some real talk.”
“So, real talk. In this election in the last kind of couple — I mean, maybe a couple months, certainly few weeks — there’s this whole conversation that’s been coming up about electability, focused on our campaign,” Harris continued. “Is America ready for that?” she asked, obviously fishing for a rousing cheer.
Some in the crowd shouted, “No!” which caught her off-guard. “Well, yes they are,” insisted Harris, who is polling in fifth place among her Democrat competitors with 4.8% support nationally.
