Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., agreed with a radio host on Friday after he mocked her fellow 2020 presidential candidates by claiming they were acting like talk show host Oprah Winfrey by handing out free things with unrealistic policy proposals.
“It’s almost like with everybody on stage … you know, ‘we’re going to raise minimum wage, free health care, free student loans, black people are going to get reparations.’ It’s like, ‘you get a car! you get a car! you get a car!” DJ Envy said while appearing on the “The Breakfast Club” radio show.
DJ Envy said that while all those proposals sounded good, he wanted to know what presidential candidates could “really do.”
“That’s right,” Harris said, before adding, “that’s why I’m not churning out plans like a factory — because it is really important to me that any plan that I am prepared to implement is actually doable.”
Later Friday, Harris told “The View” she was focused on issues that kept Americans up at 3 a.m. rather than “transforming the system” or “upending the markets.”
Her comments came as more 2020 candidates released detailed plans for addressing major topics
