Meet your new VP candidate for the democrat party, Kamala Harris

A Thread 👇

Who is Kamala? Why has the internet exploded with ridiculously crude memes & hysteria since the recent announcement of the Biden/Harris ticket?

Let's take a walk, I'm about to open your mind..
Kamala Harris was born October of 1964 in Oakland, CA. Her mother Shyamala Gopalan emigrated from India in 1960 to pursue a doctorate in endocrinology at UC Berkeley. Her father Donald J. Harris emigrated from British Jamaica 1961 for grad study in economics at UC Berkeley
Kamala attended high school in Quebec, Canada graduating in 1981. She attended college at Howard University in Washington, D.C. where she double-majored in political science & economics graduating with a B.A. in 1986. She interned as a mailroom clerk for CA Senator Alan Cranston
At the start of her professional career, Kamala returned to CA, where in 1989 she earned her Juris Doctor from the University of CA, Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. She passed the bar exam & gained admission to the State Bar of California in June of 1990
Kamala was then hired as a deputy district attorney in Alameda County, California. She was deemed "extremely progressive." February 1998, San Francisco DA Terence Hallinan recruited Harris as an assistant DA.
In October 2003, the San Francisco Ethics Commission found that Harris unintentionally violated the city's campaign finance law by exceeding the voluntary $211,000 spending limit. Issuing $34,000 in penalties and corrective measures
Kamala became District Attorney of San Francisco from 2004–2011. Harris inherited a 50% felony conviction rate in 2004. During her tenure, the felony conviction rate rose to 53% in 2005, to 66% in 2006 & 76% in 2009.
Fast Forward to late 2018, Now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh found himself in the middle of sexual assault allegations. Kamala was a very outspoken member of the Senate against Kavanaugh
Kamala sparred off with Kavanaugh during Senate confirmation hearings gaining national attention for her scrutiny
"Judge Kavanaugh has undergone six FBI full-field investigations from 1993 to 2018," he said. "No such allegation resembling the anonymous claims ever surfaced."
Much is now coming to light on Kamala Harris' "authoritarianism" & abuses of power. Including the "Three Strikes" law, Planned Parenthood & attempting to criminalize dissent in the matter of global warming, weaponizing the IRS against corporations, etc.
Wikileaks just dumped 137 documents on Kamala Harris as well đź‘€
Nevertheless, (OPINION) Biden/Harris will not garner enough enthusiasm to beat Trump in the 2020 election. I have a feeling there may be some plot twists over the coming months. buckle up folks!
