Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris may still be riding high off her debate performance last week, but she’s not going to like what her former alleged lover just said.
Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, who claims he had an extramarital affair with Harris, declared over the weekend that none of the 25 Democratic candidate can defeat President Donald Trump in 2020.
In his column for the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown also wrote that he didn’t think Harris could beat Trump.
“The first Democratic debates proved one thing: We still don’t have a candidate who can beat Donald Trump,” Brown wrote.
“California Sen. Kamala Harris got all the attention for playing prosecutor in chief, but her case against former Vice President Joe Biden boiled down in some ways to a ringing call for forced school busing. It won’t be too hard for Trump to knock that one out of the park in 2020,” he added.
Brown went on to say that while Joe Biden is still the frontrunner, he thinks the former vice president greatly damaged his chances after having an embarrassing performance during the second night of debates.
“Biden did himself zero favors by telling Harris that he opposed only busing that was ordered by the federal government,” wrote Brown.
He then asked: “It was a weird endorsement of states’ rights and local jurisdictions’ right to segregate schools. That’s the best argument he could marshal against busing little kids miles across town?”
Brown rounded out his column by saying Trump probably loved watching the first two primary debates last week because they showed how chaotic the Democratic Party is right now.
“Trump must have enjoyed every moment and every answer, because he now knows he’s looking at a bunch of potential rivals who are still not ready for prime time,” Brown wrote.
Back in January, Brown stunned many when he published a column claiming that he had an affair with Harris while he was married.
Brown also wrote that he used his powerful position to help boost Harris’ career in politics.
“Yes, we dated,” Brown said. “It was more than 20 years ago.”
“Yes, I may have influenced her career by appointing her to two state commissions when I was Assembly speaker,” Brown continued. “And I certainly helped with her first race for district attorney in San Francisco.”
While Harris had a good debate last Thursday — one in which she took Biden to the woodshed over his shoddy record on race and continued praise towards segregationists — it appears her viral moment could be a total lie.
During the debate, Harris lectured Biden and claimed that she was in the second integrated class in Berkeley, California.
Harris’ claim appears to be a total lie, as reports seem to suggest that classrooms in Berkeley were already integrated in 1963 — before she was born.
Needless to say, this has not been a great week for Harris.
