Feel how you want about Sen. Kamala Harris, but we won’t debate is her ability to read every last one Republican for filth who tries it with her.
This is a lesson that U.S. Attorney General William Barr learned on May 1 when he tried to act dumb and evade answering Democrats’ questions in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee about Robert Mueller’s 448-page report on whether ya’ll president colluded with Russia in the 2016 Presidential Election.
On Wednesday, Barr was asked an array of questions, many that were in response to learning that Mueller had sent two letters expressing to Barr that he felt his summary of the report did a poor job capturing what Mueller was trying to say.
Concerned that this President is using the AG’s office for his own personal needs, Harris asked Barr had #45 or anyone in the White House asked him to open up an investigation on anyone. Barr’s answer? Huh?
“Has the President or anyone at the White House ever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone,” Harris asked Barr. “Yes or no?”
“I will repeat it,” Harris said. “Has the President or anyone at the White House ever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone? Yes or no, please, sir.”
Barr was stuttering, acting dumb AF and brand new.
“Seems you’d remember something like that, be able to tell us,” Harris said as she infamously put her finger on her chin. (That’s when you know she is not playing).
Later, Barr said he understood the question, but didn’t understand the term “suggested.”
“…hinted? Inferred? No—you don’t know?” he asked.
Like…in what world do you not understand basic language? What Black woman would be allowed to this mediocre and oversee a government agency?
Take a look at Sen. Cory Booker trying not to laugh:
Later, Harris was clear that Barr needs to resign because he lied to the American people.
Of course, Trump said Harris was being “nasty,” but this is also the same dude that said that there were some “very fine” Neo Nazis…so, who cares what he thinks?
Meanwhile, folks have been praising Harris for her line of questioning and for continuing to let the GOP know that isn’t the one…ever:

Kamala Harris was about to tell AG Barr to go get a switch— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) May 2, 2019
I watched Kamala Harris eviscerate Barr in those 8 mins. And I’m glad she’s running for president. But there’s also a part of me that would love to see her become the Attorney General for another POTUS. Or stay on the Judiciary Comm, keeping her foot on their necks. pic.twitter.com/wIEz5EDhi0— April (@ReignOfApril) May 2, 2019
Kamala Harris: Did you eat lunch today?— Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) May 1, 2019
William Barr: I don't know
Harris: How can you not know?
Barr: I'm grappling with the word "eat"
Harris: Did you consume food today?
Barr: I don't know if I'd say "consume"
Harris: Did food go in your mouth?
Barr: I'm really not sure
Two main takeaways from the Barr hearing today: AG Barr didn't even look at the evidence before clearing Trump of obstruction. And I'd hate to be a defendant if @KamalaHarris was the prosecutor.— Eugene Robinson (@Eugene_Robinson) May 1, 2019

May or may not see Senator @KamalaHarris or a woman of her caliber her achieve Presidency, but I’m real glad I lived to see her use both barrels of professional expertise, to simply do her job without a man like Barr standing in the way of even that. She’s already my president.— Xeni Jardin (@xeni) May 2, 2019
Kamala Harris gutted Barr like a fish, leaving him flopping on the deck https://t.co/1D1UlYVkza— VANITY FAIR (@VanityFair) May 2, 2019
We're going to see clips of #KamalaHarris on tonight's national news.— Victoria Brownworth #LockThemUp (@VABVOX) May 1, 2019
Watching her and how flustered she has made #Barr, it's easy to see how she would be the best person to challenge Trump.
Imagine him stuttering like Barr is.#BarrHearing pic.twitter.com/8zdrd2C5mG
