During Part II of the first 2020 Democratic Primary Debate, Kamala Harris went after former Vice President Joe Biden, slamming him on his record on segregation.
Harris, in a planned jab at Biden, said she didn’t think Biden was a racist, but that she had a fundamental problem with him praising two senators who were segregationists. She accused Biden of working with the segregationists to oppose busing in schools.
She then went on to say, “There was a little girl in California who was bused to school…. That little girl was me.” She went on to claim that she was a part of the second integrated class in Berkeley, California.
Biden responded by saying that he wasn’t against segregation per se, he was against the federal government’s department of education doing segregation, and then blamed her local school district for decisions made about busing.
Harris then went into tyrant mode, saying, “There are moments in history where states fail to preserve the civil rights of all people.” She went on to say that at times when states don’t do what the federal government wants, it’s the duty of the federal government to come down on states and force them to comply.
The audience went nuts, and her campaign almost immediately tweeted out a photo of Harris in pigtails as a little girl, meaning, it was a planned attack. There was nothing natural about it. It was pre-planned.

There’s only one problem for Kamala. The entire thing is far from the truth.
The California senator and 2020 wannabe said she was a Berkeley public school student in the second class to integrate. Sorry, but that’s just not true.
Harris went to school in Berkeley for only two years, then at 7-years-old, moved with her mother to Canada and attended grade school and high school there.
The senator was born in 1964, (and neither of her parents were citizens at the time) and she made the claim that she was in only the second class to integrate at the Berkeley public schools.
Classrooms in Berkeley were already integrated starting in 1963, a year before she was born. Even if she were born in 1963, she wouldn’t have been in Berkeley public schools at a few months old.
From The Gateway Pundit:
Here’s a photo from the 1963 Berkeley HS yearbook. Granted, Harris would have only been in elementary school in 1968, the year official busing began, but the yearbook photo clearly shows that integration was already in place in public schools in Berkeley a year before the California senator was born.
Not to sound like a famous move line, I see black people.
And here’s a photo from the Berkeley 1964 HS yearbook —the year Harris was born.
Liberal fact checking web sites and Fake News are now arguing that the real lie is that Harris was never bused to school. That’s not what the argument was ever about. The argument is that she claimed she was part of the second integrated class in Berkeley schools, and that statement is clearly not accurate.
This isn’t the first time Harris got in trouble for lying about a timeline in her past. During a radio interview on “The Breakfast Club,” the New York City-based nationally syndicated radio program hosted by DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God.
The question came if she ever smoked marijuana, and she answered in the affirmative, admitting that she toked a bit in her college years.
Harris eventually was asked what music she listened to when she smoked a joint. Charlamagne Tha God asked, “What was you listening to when you was high? What was on? What song was on?”
Harris quickly responded, “Definitely Snoop, Tupac for sure.”
The problem is, Harris graduated from Howard University in 1986, finished law school in 1989, and was admitted to the California State Bar in 1990.
From Fox News:
Snoop Dogg’s debut album “Doggystyle” was released in 1993. Snoop made music prior to his first album, appearing on Dr. Dre’s 1992 album “The Chronic” and the soundtrack of the 1992 film “Deep Cover,” but they were both released years after Harris finished school.
As for Tupac, his first album “2Pacalypse Now” was released in 1991. The rap legend also recorded music as part of the group Digital Underground, but it was also released in the early 1990s after Harris finished school.
If Harris lies, even when she doesn’t have to, how does she expect Americans to trust her enough to elect her president? The Democrats love to claim Donald Trump lies all the time, but so far, there’s more credible evidence that Kamala Harris lies than Trump. This is a problem that may come back to haunt her.
