Kamala Harris calls on Twitter to suspend President Trump’s account


♪ ♪>>Harris: SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS SAYS IT’S TIME TO CENSOR THE PRESIDENT. THE CALIFORNIA SENATOR AND 2020 CANDIDATE IS CALLING ON TWITTER TO SUSPEND THE PRESIDENT’S ACCOUNT. THAT THESE TWEETS HAVE GONE TOO FAR. HERE’S WHAT SHE SAYS.>>I FRANKLY THINK THAT BASED ON THIS AND ALL WE HAVE SEEN HIM DO BEFORE, INCLUDING ATTACKING MEMBERS OF CONGRESS THAT HIS TWITTER ACCOUNT SHOULD BE SUSPENDED. I THINK THERE IS PLENTY OF NOW EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST THAT HE IS IRRESPONSIBLE WITH HIS WORDS IN A WAY THAT CAUSES HARM TO OTHER PEOPLE. SOME OF THE PRIVILEGE OF USING THOSE WORDS AND THAT WE SHOULD PROBABLY BE TAKEN FROM HIM.>>Harris: ALL RIGHT, LET’S ALL USE OUR WORDS. MELISSA.>>Melissa: I THINK THAT IF WE TURNED OFF TWITTER ALTOGETHER, THE WORLD WOULD BE A HAPPIER PLACE. I WOULD LIKE TO GO BACK TO A TIME WHEN THERE WAS NO TWITTER. SORRY, TWITTER. I LOVE YOU. I MEAN THAT IN MY HEART, FOR REAL.>>Harris: YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT LIKE EYE CONTACT AND WORD WORDS.>>Melissa: JUST THE WAY THAT EVERYBODY RATTLES OFF ON TWITTER. NOT JUST THE PRESIDENT, BUT I WOULD LOVE FOR THE PRESENT AND ALSO GET OFF TWITTER.>>Jason: IS SUCH A VIOLATION OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT. THEY WANT TO SUPPRESS THE ABILITY OF THE PRESIDENT TO TALK DIRECTLY TO THE PEOPLE. WE HAVE PRETTY WELL ESTABLISHED THAT BIG NEWS NARRATIVE THAT’S OUT THERE. UNHINGED. JUST LETS IT RIP. THERE IS SOME NEGATIVITY TO THAT, BUT THERE IS A WHOLE LOT MORE POSITIVE.>>Melissa: HE’S ACTUALLY DONE THE RUN AROUND WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE HAS DONE, COMING OUT TO THE EDGE OF HIS DRIVEWAY, TALKING TO REPORTERS. SO I WOULD SAY THAT THAT IS AMAZING THAT YOU GET TO SEE HIM DO IT IN REAL TIME, ANSWER THE QUESTIONS. I DON’T THINK HE NEEDS TWITTER ANYMORE BECAUSE THERE WILL ALWAYS BE CAMERAS AT THE END OF HIS DRIVEWAY.>>Harris: HE LIKES TO DO WHAT HE WANTS — I DON’T KNOW. COMEDIAN AND ACTOR ROB SCHNEIDER ON KAMALA HARRIS SAID THIS. HE TWEETED THIS. WHICH IS IRONIC TO GET “OFFICIALS ASKING FOR THIS IS GROSSLY UN-AMERICAN. FREE SPEECH IS PROTECTED, NOT JUST THE SPEECH YOU LIKE, BUT ALSO THE SPEED YOU FIND ABHORRENT. KAMALA HARRIS, YOU ARE EITHER FOR ALL OF IT OR NOT OF IT.”>>Jason: YEAH, ROB.>>Kristen: THAT SPEAKS TO ME MORE OF THE GOVERNMENT SHUTTING PEOPLE SPEECH DOWN. THEY WISH THAT HE DID NOT HAVE THE TOOL OF THIS. WHEN I DO FOCUS GROUPS, SWING VOTERS, EVEN SOME OF THE PRESIDENT’S SUPPORTERS, MELISSA, THEY CUE THEY EUE THEY ECHO YOUR SENTIMENTS. THAT IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN TAKING A POSITION, WHICH I BELIEVE IN THIS CASE, SHE IS DOING TO MAKE A BIG SPLASH BECAUSE SHE IS FADING IN THE HOME I CLEAR LAST. GET THE PRESIDENT OFF TWITTER.>>Harris: DIFFERENT TOPIC, BUT ALSO CALLING TO SHUT SOMEBODY DOWN. JOE BIDEN SAYS TAKE HIM OFF THE AIR TO THE NETWORKS, TO THE EDITORS. DON’T PUT HIM ON THE AIR. IT JUST SEEMS LIKE THE CENSORSHIP IS PART OF THE BATTLE FROM THE LEFT. AND I DON’T KNOW IF THAT IS GOING TO WORK BECAUSE THAT MAKES THEM THIRSTY FOR MORE WORDS. USE YOUR WORDS.>>Jessica: USE YOUR WORDS, BUT ALSO USE TRUTHFUL WORDS. I THINK THAT IS WHAT KAMALA HARRIS WAS TALKING ABOUT.>>Harris: SHE DIDN’T SAY THAT THINGS WEREN’T TRUTHFUL. DANGEROUS, DANGER, WHICH YOU HAVE USED IT SEVERAL TIMES THIS HOUR. SAYING THAT SHE FELT LIKE THE PRESIDENT WAS PUSHING AGAINST THE WHISTLE-BLOWER. SHE HAS ACCUSED THE PRESIDENT OF LYING.>>Jessica: THAT IS IN THE ONGOING CONVERSATION. OKAY. ANYWAY, I AM NOT FOR SUSPENDING HIS ACCOUNT. I THINK THAT HE SHOULD HAVE TO UNBLOCK EVERYONE THAT HE BLOCKED BECAUSE HE IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. RUDY GIULIANI SHOULD BE ABLE TO
