(UPDATE AT END) Democratic Party presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (CA) at a campaign stop in New Hampshire Friday laughed in agreement while saying, “Well said…well said” to a supporter who called President Trump “mentally retarded”. On Saturday, Harris gaslighted reporters questioning her about the incident. Harris did not apologize, saying, “Let me just be really clear. I would never condone that kind of language being spoken by anybody about anybody.” She also told one reporter she did not hear the supporter’s comment.
Harris laughed out loud, as did the audience of Harris supporters who laughed and clapped at the “mentally retarded” comment.
NBC News reporter Vaughn Hillyard asked Harris on Saturday about the incident. Harris went on and on but never apologized..
