The Washington Post was caught red-handed, deleting a segment of an interview with then-presidential candidate Kamala Harris.
The segment was written nearly two years ago and contained a comment from Harris about inmates begging for food and water. The comments from Harris represent something of a Freudian slip, which illustrates her real views on inmates and incarceration in general.
Now that she is the Vice President of the United States, the Washington Post thought it prudent to “memory hole” the comments. Unfortunately, their attempt has drawn attention to Harris’s time as an overzealous prosecutor.
In the segment, Harris said, “that campaigns are like prisons.” This comment on its own is bizarre, but it isn’t until later in the segment that Harris really lets the mask slip.
While describing a break in the campaign, Harris said, “It’s a treat that a prisoner gets when they ask for, ‘A morsel of food please.’ And water! I just want wahtahhh….’ Your standards really go out the f—ing window.”
Americans can rest easy knowing they elected an overzealous prosecutor to the second-highest office in the nation.
