Fox News Host Neil Cavuto Corrects Trump Campaign: Kamala Harris Never Called Biden ‘Racist’ – By Matt Wilstein (The Daily Beast) / Aug 11 2020
Neil Cavuto immediately shut down the Trump campaign’s attempt to rewrite history.
Immediately after Joe Biden announced Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his 2020 running mate, Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson released a statement attacking her. There was a blatant lie in the first sentence.
“Not long ago, Kamala Harris called Joe Biden a racist and asked for an apology she never received,” Pierson wrote. “Clearly, Phony Kamala will abandon her own morals, as well as try to bury her record as a prosecutor, in order to appease the anti-police extremists controlling the Democrat Party.”
Aside from the fact that the statement attempted to paint Harris as both a tough prosecutor and somehow “anti-police,” it also mischaracterized the infamous confrontation between the senator and former vice president during the first Democratic primary debate last June.
