Kamala Harris Thinks Donald Trump is a Coward

Kamala Harris Thinks Donald Trump is a Coward

You know, of the
top four candidates for the Democratic
nomination for president, our first guest is the
only one young enough to have listened to Offset
and Cardi B on purpose. She is from right
here in California and she means business. Please welcome
senator Kamala Harris. [MUSIC PLAYING] Welcome home.
You’re home in California. – Oh, I’m so happy to be home.
– You’ve been in Iowa, right? I was just there yesterday. How long were you there? That was about a 24 hour
trip, but then the week before I was there for several days. Isn’t it odd that
you have to concentrate so much effort in a state that–
had you been to Iowa before? – Not before I was a candidate.
– Yeah. Yeah. But now– I’ve been
there a lot now. – You’ve been there a lot now?
– Yeah. Yeah. Well, you did very
well in the debate and now the polls are surging. You had a big bump
in the national poll. And in California, your
number one, which is good, because it’s is your state. Yeah. And I think in New
Hampshire– you’re number two in New Hampshire,
which is good, right? I’m not paying
attention to the polls. Do you not pay
attention to the polls? No. The only poll that matters
for me is on election day. Does anybody come to you and
say, here’s how it’s going? Yeah.
JIMMY KIMMEL: They do. They’ve told me.
My team has told me. And, certainly, it’s positive
reinforcement, but honestly– Is the reason you don’t
pay attention to the polls what happened last election? I don’t– I have a complicated
relationship with polls, which is this, when I started– when I first ran for DA, when I
first ran for attorney general, people said to me, nobody
like you has done this, they’re not ready for you. And the first
polls that came out suggested to everyone
that we couldn’t win. And so from then on, I’ve
just kind of felt like, you know what, I’m
going to pay attention to the voters and
the people and then I’ll leave it to the consultants
to pay attention to the polls. JIMMY KIMMEL: Ultimately, the
polls don’t really matter. Well, yeah. Although, they matter
when it comes to fundraising and that sort of thing. Yeah, I mean it is an
indication of where you are. But it’s not the only one. You got a big boost at
the debate when, I think, you broke two of Joe
Biden’s ribs at that debate. Are you aware of that? Do you feel– do you
have any regret of going in so– so hard on him? You know, I felt
strongly that we needed to have a full discussion
about that era in our country. And it was a discussion
that had been occurring for probably about
two weeks before the debate. And I felt the need to be
sure that we are reflecting true history as it relates to
integration of the schools, and the need to force
integration because there were so many states that were
adamant against allowing the children of all races
to be educated together. And I’ll tell you, Jimmy, I
have had so many people come up to me and almost
whisper like it’s a secret among us,
black and white, I was blessed since that debate. It’s something that–
it has not been the subject of much discussion
in the last, you know, few decades. But it is something that
impacted millions of people in our country. And I think it’s an important–
it’s an important reminder that we have to always
remember our history and the last chapter
if we’re going to accurately and correctly
write the next chapter. Is there a danger,
do you feel– because this is–
I feel like this is unlike any other election. Yeah. Is there a danger that the
Democrats will cannibalize and really hurt each other going
in to, you know, the big prize? I hope not. And I think that most
of us are of like mind, that this should be, on
that debate stage, a debate about issues, but
not personal attacks. It should be about,
you know, pointing out the differences,
obviously, between us, so that Democrats
can make a decision. But it should not be about
cannibalizing anybody. If you get to the point
where you are debating Trump, will you engage in
personal attacks? I Hope the answer is yes. No, but I will prosecute
the case against four more years of Donald Trump. And there’s a rap
sheet to be prosecuted. You know, he barely mentioned
you at his rally tonight, which I think means
he’s most scared of you. I really do. Because he’s been focusing on–
why do you think he’s focusing on these congresswomen so much? I think that he has defiled
the office of the President of the United States. You called him a coward,
which isn’t necessarily fair. I mean, this man
almost went to Vietnam, were it not for his bone spurs. Bone spurs. No, here’s the thing. Here’s the thing. The President of the United
States has so much power, and in particular, in that
microphone that she holds. He’s a woman? And– well, that she who
should be president holds. JIMMY KIMMEL: I see. And what we have seen
is that this individual, this president, he, I guess,
believes that his power is to beat people down,
instead of what real power and
strength is about, which is lifting people up. [APPLAUSE] That does seem to be the case. Yeah. And that’s why I also
call him a coward. You know– you know my
background, I was a prosecutor. I took on predators, be
they transnational criminal organizations that preyed
on women or children or the big banks that
preyed on homeowners, pharmaceutical companies,
for profit colleges. And I’m going to tell you
something about predators. The thing about them
is, by their very nature and character and instinct,
they prey on the vulnerable. They prey on those they
believed to be weak. They prey on those who
are in need of help, and often desperate
in need of help. And this is the kind
of characteristic that we see in this president. And then he embraces– he embraces the dictators. He embraces Kim Jong-un. He embraces Vladimir Putin. He embraces MBS. And let’s be clear about
those three fellows, right? Which is that, on the issue
of Russia’s interference in the election of the
President of the United States, this president prefers
to take the word of the Russian
president over the word of the American
intelligence community. On the subject of an
American student who was tortured and later
died, this president prefers to take the
word of the North Korean dictator over the word of
the American intelligence community. On the subject of a journalist
who was assassinated, a journalist who has
American credentials, he prefers to take the
word of a Saudi prince over the word of the American
intelligence community. Who is this guy? I think– I really– I mean, you’ve
crystallized it very well. I think he was the host of
“The Celebrity Apprentice.” – Exactly.
– Yeah. And, you know, he obviously
achieved success there. He has obviously achieved
very little success here. So he should go back to that. Senator Kamala
Harris of California is here back home in California.
– Yes. What are you going to do?
You’re here a short time. I’m. here. I’ve got a number of
meetings and events. And I’m having my in-laws
and the kids over for dinner tomorrow night, so I’m cooking.
And– And you still
have to be senator while you’re doing this stuff. Yes, of course. Today there was a vote. And it was almost
a unanimous vote. This was for the September
11th Victim’s Fund. Yes, Yes. All they wanted to do– Jon Stewart spoke
beautifully about this. Beautifully. And the idea was they
would extend those benefits for victims of September 11. And one Senator, Rand
Paul, voted to block it. When Congress can’t pass
something like that, it makes you wonder if we can
ever come together on anything. I mean, I– listen,
the way that I approach– first of all, it’s tragic
that that did not pass. JIMMY KIMMEL: Yeah. Because, as we know, and have
known for now over a decade, there are so many heroes
associated with 9/11 who deserve to receive all
the benefit of our respect and all the benefit of the
dignity we can give them. You know, on the broader issue
about whether we can find any common ground in the
United States Congress, I do believe we can,
because I believe that the American people know
that the vast majority of us have so much more in common
than what separates us. And the way that I think
about my priorities is through the lens of
what I call the 3 o’clock in the morning thought, right? Which is when people
wake up in the middle of the night with that thought
that’s been weighing on them. When they’re thinking
that thought, it is never through the
lens of the party with which they’re registered to vote. When they’re thinking
that thought, it is never through the lens
of some simplistic demographics some pollster put them in. And for the vast
majority of us, when we’re thinking that
thought– and you know this, I know this well– it has to do with our
personal health, the health of our children or our parents. Can I get a job, keep
a job, pay the bills by the end of the month,
retire with dignity? For our students, can I pay
off those student loans? For so many families
in America, can I help my family member get
off their opioid addiction or their drug addiction? The vast majority of us
have so much more in common than what separates us. And if we approach
priorities through that lens, I do believe we
can see progress. But the first thing
that we’ve got to do is agree, also,
that we are going to reject those people
who are trying to sow hate and division among us. And this is the
contrast right now, which is where I believe
the American people truly are and then what you’re
hearing from supposed leaders. And that’s why, you know, Jimmy,
in talking about what’s been happening over
the last 48 hours, listen, people may not
agree with all my policies, people may not vote for me. But I’m going to tell you this. We have got to get
a place– to a place where we as Americans agree. We have got to
unify as a country around our commonalities, around
our collective priorities. We have got to unify. [APPLAUSE] We have got to. You support Medicare for All? I do. Do you– and you– would people be able to still go
and get supplemental insurance if they wanted to?
– Yes, they would. Yes, absolutely.
– Is this something that you– Medicare for All would cost
the middle class, or lower middle class, the lower
class more with something that would increase taxes? No, it would not. And it would actually bring
health care to the place where your access
to health care is not a function of how much money
you have in your back pocket. And, you know, right now,
we are looking at the fact that we have Medicare for All,
and you know where that is? In the emergency
rooms of America. And it is too
expensive and it also means that people are getting
access to health care when they’re in crisis instead
of before then, when we can actually alleviate
their pain and extend the quality of their
life in a much smarter and more effective way. You know, and then people– there’s this whole
argument that people think, well, maybe is this
going to mean that I need to– that I have
to worry about not being able to see my doctor? 91% of the doctors in
America are in Medicare. And those that
are not are mostly pediatricians and the 9%. And you know why
they’re not in Medicare? Because Medicare
doesn’t cover children. JIMMY KIMMEL: Mm-hmm. But when we have
Medicare for all, that will not be
any longer the case, which means that the
vast majority of doctors will be in that system. And you can keep your
doctor under that system. And it will be that when you
walk into that hospital, when you walk into the
doctor’s office, you don’t have to fill
out all those forms and give your credit card. You just give your– your Medicare card
and you walk in and then you walk
out when you’re done. You’ve been working on
a prescription drug plan. Yes, yes. What’s– in a nutshell,
what is that plan? It’s about bringing the cost
of prescription drugs down. The pharmaceutical companies
have been jacking up prices hand over fist for years. And so what I’m
prepared to do is, one, to require that the
pharmaceutical companies pay a fair price for drugs. And what that means is looking
at what other countries are charging for the same drugs
and then bringing the price down so it will be– it’ll match the average of what
other countries are paying. Because why is it that the
United States government is the only one that is allowing
its people to pay more for the same drugs
that people can get in Canada for half the price? Many of which we are making. I know, this is my point. And why isn’t the American
government standing up? Well, because you have so
many people in Washington DC who are in the back pocket of
the pharmaceutical . companies. Who’s the worst one? Name them. I’ve got a list. But also what I’m
prepared to do is this. If we can’t get consensus
in the Congress about that and also getting rid
of the tax loophole for pharmaceutical
companies to advertise on television, right,
because they get tax breaks for advertising on TV. All those
advertisements you see. We’ll get rid of those. But how will we learn about
mesothelioma if we don’t– every four minutes. Exactly. But let me tell you, if we can’t
get Congress to act on that, then what I’m prepared
to do, as president, is take executive
action to, one, allow people to buy
their drugs from Canada, to also put in place an attorney
general of the United States who will prosecute
pharmaceutical companies for predatory
practices, and to take the licenses, basically, that– the patents that drug
companies who have been funded and their research has
been government funded, take their patents, if
they fail to bring prices down to meet the average of what
other countries are charging. [APPLAUSE] Thank you for being here. You’re welcome. Give my best to
everyone in Iowa. I will, I will. Senator Kamala
Harris, everyone. Thank you. She’s running for president. Hi, I’m Jimmy Kimmel. Click below to subscribe to our
YouTube channel, or if you want to be that way about it, don’t.

  • Divide and Conquer began so much earlier than Trump's presidency, and You know that, Kamala…It's been all, by design, of the malevolent globalist nwo agenda!!! So manipulative, and evil. Also, it's not Health care…It's sickness management!!! For Profit, and for Control!

  • Coward? This is coming from someone who came up a salacious way, and doesn’t have a straight answer for her stance. Democrats are done, haha

  • Kamala Harris student debt forgiveness plan:

    "Yesterday, I announced that, as president, I'll establish a payday loan forgiveness program for millennials who open a pet store that operates for 14 months in sacred lands."

  • A Lawyer from San Francisco (Her husband is a lawyer also) as President LMAO this foolish woman is completely out out touch with reality.. Her and her husband are also multi millionaires

  • All the Politicians have to do to bring down the cost of drugs… is to re-Schedule Cannabis from Schedule I… to Schedule II. Then, research can begin and we can get back to what God intended. We need to clean up the air, water, soil, and polluted food as well. This is a simple, humble, but very logical beginning.

  • I just love Jimmy Kimmel! When he broke down on stage because of his son needing serious medical care at such a tender, young age, it broke my heart. And Kimmel has worked to get all Americans affordable health care ever since!

  • wow, the cardi B and offset comment as her introduction. Bernie Sanders just met with Cardi B too. SO sad that this is how they getting the black female vote.

  • Race Baiter!
    She’s the
    I’ll do and say anything to win candidate. Intellectually lazy, like all the other candidates that use race and racism as an excuse for everything!
    The world is watching all of you, and it’s sad what the Dems have become.

  • Mexico has universal healthcare cheap medicines!! Not the best but at least you dont die making a life desision if you can afford it or not!!! For supposebly the best coubtry in the world thats just retarded

  • shes definitely not no.1 in california (maybe with republicans)…..nobody likes a 2 faced fake black person who locked up real black youth 4 smoking pot n then brags how she used 2 smoke it herself whilst listening 2 yet unreleased 2pac cd's…….she may as well have gop tattooed on her 4head….

  • Kampala has a list. In the words from the Micado I bet they all
    Have a Little List
    Of folk who won't be missed.

  • I got some bad news for you Kamala…..There is no "coming together" with the current GOP, How could you get any agreement with Lindsey Graham and/or Moscow Mitch?
    It is not enough just to beat Trump, the swamp must be drained dry and replaced with people of Humanity on both sides…..and I am yet to see a Republican with any Humanity, have you??

    Never has there been such a Black and White election (Pun intended) this is a Vote between right and wrong, there is no middle ground, if we lose this one it is "GAME OVER" for both the American people and Planet Earth, the clock is ticking!

  • did i hear her correctly?… they prey on the desperate in need of help? how about the young black men she put in prison for minor offenses … like smoking pot !! she's a fukin liar

  • uh huh… and when your the president your going to tell the these leaders you mentioned to scratch their ass? come on … your going to have meeting with them and talk nicey nicey.. HEY BRAIN DEAD LADY… YOU HAVE TO TALK WITH THEM YOU FUKIN MORON… TRUMP 2020

  • If you need to see a doctor, you can go to Mexico and see a generalist for FREE! Honest, I did it at least six times and was NOT a citizen. I am a White American. Many of these doctors are young or just need a job. Of course, if you need to see a specialist, they can recommend one and that costs money BUT far, far, far less. If you live in Mexico, you can buy Very cheap insurance and get excellent coverage. Over a million Americans live there, millions more in many, many other countries.

  • Is this the person who wants to jail parents. I wonder how much tax payers money she waste for wrongfully convicting innocent people

  • i don't disagree at all with her about Trump, but i don't think Kamala Harris is exactly a truth teller in regards to many subjects of her record. i don't trust her at all. pass.

  • Very important that she continues to call him a PREDATOR put that label on him and keep it there and you will be president !!

  • She is lying through her teeth about 'Medicare For All.' She talks as if she is going to do 'Single Payer', but that's not what she believes in. She changes her stories depending on who the audience is.

  • You don't jeperdize forgin relations and that's what trump knows I have a feeling if someone like this Kamala was in office she would surly have started World War 3 10 times over

  • Who's the coward now, Kamala? it's high time you got called out for your crimes against blacks as prosecutor. A coward interviewing another coward. Pathetic!

  • I was shocked to see her since she had been annihilated by Tulsi Gabbard, then I realized this interview is old.

  • She's actually saying what Trump said months ago. We can buy a prescription drug outside of our country for pennies on the dollar. Our president wants to change that! She's like a little kid in school I steal someone else's candy.

  • Impeach trump for being responsible for the strongest economy, the lowest unemployment, bringing back manufacturing and trillions of dollars from over seas, negotiating fair trade agreements, for the lowest taxes for middle class, for defeating Isis,
    and for the strongest military,… in American history! Duhhhh!

  • What? She took on big banks that prey on homeowners? Well how the hell does she explain refusing to prosecute Steve Mnuchin for his role at Onewest bank in illegally repossessing peoples homes, even after her own investigators said they found at least 1000 instances of law breaking and rule violations that allowed those repossessions and they suggested he be prostituted. Because instead of being in jail for his crimes, hes the treasury secretary.

  • Kimmie, did YOU serve in the military? Why are you talking about Trump?
    Lady, I and many millions of citizens have NOTHING in common with you except air. You and your Dem friends attack Trump every day! You are about dividing people. Lies, lies, lies. You know, if people want to go to college, you save money. Maybe colleges need to lower their crazy prices! You will wreak the country like Obummer tried to do.

  • I wonder if he would have asked the same question to biden. Do men feel bad when they go after a woman? No!

  • She is a just an empty bag of nothing. The choice candidate of the Coastal Cali-New York-Washington elite and Ivy League schools.

  • The intellenge community has a long track record of lying. That is a dumb argument. But a typical one from a corrupt establishment Democrat. Kamala has a terrible track record wtf is wrong with ppl in cali.

  • Kamala is smart determined and know her way around the legal system. I just don't think she would be a positive for the pressing issues of police brutality, cop accountability, corrupt judicial system etc….I think she would not be objective because of her past history, I think she would back the corrupt judges, Leuitenents, Captains, Sergeants and cops. with no accountability for either.

  • We don't need someone who is proud of profiting from designing legislation that disproportionately affects black and brown youth. We certainly don't need a prosecutor President who knowingly withheld information that would have saved an innocent man from death row until the court twisted her arm to so. We don't need corporate sponsored puppets leading us into endless regime change war after regime change war. We have a real candidate in Tulsi Gabbard – The Peace Candidate. TULSI 2020

  • Well I think she's a lowlife slut, so we're even. Ask Willie Brown if you don't believe me.
    She's used to polls surging. Again, ask Willie Brown, lol.

  • Yah nobody cares Kamala. Any of these 2020 degenerate candidates will lose, and Trump will get reelected! Count on that! By the way Kamala your state is awful, and you have all done an terrible job there, have a lovely day!

  • Wow do you think she saw his fake medical records on the bone spurs….. can you imagine him being in the same bunker with you pulling guard Duty…..sp4 Republic of Vietnam 1971 Saigon

  • Kamala said Democrats should not canabalize each other at debates but talk issues yet that’s exactly what Tulsi Gabbard did to Kamala in the last debate.

  • Why would any one cheer this ex-California States attorney who kept prisoners in jail longer than they have too, just because Kamala Harris, wanted CHEAP LABOR and an innocent man sitting on DEATH ROLL for years until a federal Judge ordered his release… listening to the audience cheering and clapping for this EVIL woman is Mentally SICK.. Very SICK and SCARY. and a DISGRACE.

  • Kamala built her career by incarcerating blacks and browns in the state with the highest incarceration rates in the nation. 3 strikes, gang injunctions, etc. Now she wants to be the candidate of the people. Can’t have it both ways!

  • Kamala Harris…half Indian half Jamaican…as a attorney General of California…she locked over 1500 brown and black people on marijuana violation…when asked she ever smoked she laughs….she locked people beyond their sentence to use as cheap labour for the city California…she blocked the evidence in court for the inocent man on death row when the court forced her to do so….amagine….if she became president of the United State…I would be freaking out…….

  • Hey Kamala,

    1) You supported and defended a for-profit privatized prison system. THEN you accepted their donations.

    2) You jailed 1500 people (mostly black) for simple marijuana possession. THEN you laughed about smoking marijuana yourself on the Breakfast Club podcast

    3) You fought against reforming the cash for bail system that has devastated poor and black communities.

    4) You fought to keep all convictions resulting from a lab technician who was using and selling the drugs instead of testing for authenticity so a judge had to ORDER you to overturn 600 convictions.

    5) You fought to block an advanced DNA test that could have freed a black death row inmate. The governor had to ORDER you to allow it.

    6) You JAILED working single parents for their kid's truancy.

    7) You ordered inmates to be held longer than their sentences and used them as cheap labor ($1 per day)

    You may have slept your way into you first position in San Francisco with an old man (verifiable) but you will NOT sleep your way into the Oval Office. We are onto you. Major Tulsi Gabbard (the true progressive woman of color) exposed you for what you are -a gutless, spineless, elitist pathetic excuse for a progressive woman of color.

    And your excuse for your performance that night? “I didn’t have enough time to respond.”

    Well Kamala, Anderson Cooper gave you plenty of time to respond that night in a post-debate interview and the only two points you made were: 1) “I expected that from someone who is not a top tier candidate like me.” and 2) “Tulsi met with a dictator.”

    So allow me to address those two points Kamala:

    1. After Tulsi got done with you, you too are no longer a top tier candidate (check the polls)

    2. Yes, Tulsi did meet with a brutal dictator. She met her on the debate stage and ended her bid for the U.S. presidency.

    Hey Kamala, going against Major Tulsi Gabbard on a debate stage was a little bit different than going against the poor and powerless from your prosecutor’s throne wasn’t it?

    Go Tulsi!!!!!

  • Yuck! Kamala is Corpratist, the same ole same ole, she loves the kick backs. Didn't prosecute Steven Mnuchin’s OneWest Bank for foreclosure violations in 2013. Then she gets a big donation from him!!! Crooked Politicians 101.
