Kamala Harris Completely Misrepresented Lincoln Story During Debate

Kamala Harris Completely Misrepresented Lincoln Story During Debate
  • The 2020 election is less than a month away.
  • President Donald Trump and Joe Biden faced off in their first debate on September 29.
  • Vice President Mike Pence debated Senator Kamala Harris on October 7. 
  • Harris repeatedly lied during the debate.

(NewsReady.com) – On October 7, the vice-presidential candidates met in Salt Lake City, Utah, to debate for the only time during the 2020 campaign. Vice President Mike Pence held his own, delivering his points clearly and concisely. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) … not so much.

It seems the Democratic candidate had a bit of a problem with telling the truth on Wednesday. Not just once, either.

Honest Abe

During one part of the debate, Harris told a story about President Abraham Lincoln that sounded a little fishy. According to the congresswoman, a Supreme Court seat became vacant 27 days before the election in 1864. The president, being the honest man he was, decided he couldn’t possibly fill that seat so close to an election because, according to the senator, he said, “It’s not the right thing to do.”

The Washington Post’s Gillian Brockell fact-checked Harris’s odd claim. He said while it’s true a seat was available and Lincoln didn’t fill it before the election, there’s no evidence to support her story that he did it because of the election. The reporter said there’s also no proof he wouldn’t have just filled the seat during the “lame-duck session.”

In other words, she lied.

A Hoax!

The Lincoln story wasn’t the only fib Harris told that night. At the very beginning of the debate, the moderator asked the candidates about the COVID-19 pandemic. The Democratic senator attacked President Donald Trump, claiming he called the virus “a hoax.”

That was a lie, as well.

Trump never said the virus was a hoax. The president said the Democrats’ reaction to the pandemic was another hoax that was meant to hurt him. He has always taken COVID-19 seriously.

How can the American people trust Kamala to help run the country if she lies so much?
