Vice President Kamala Harris was being interviewed on ABC news on Thursday, where she essentially agreed with Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC)'s claim that America is not a racist country.
Said Harris, "I believe that we need to adj... well, first of all... no. I don’t think America is a racist country, but we also do have to speak truth about the history of racism in our country and its existence today."
Fox News's David Rutz tweeted:
"CNN's @VanJones68, a strong Joe Biden-Kamala Harris backer, said last night that Scott had lost "tens of millions" Black voters by saying the country wasn't racist. Harris this morning said the country wasn't racist."
Jones did in fact talk at length about Scott's statement and his speech in general, saying that "he lost a lot of African American [voters], by the tens of millions, when he said that America is not a racist nation."
"Look, you can say that we are getting better, you can say that we have come a long way, but when you look at these numbers, when you look at these statistics, it is very clear that this country is still struggling with racism. We still have racism showing up in every institution."
Far-left Democrats on social media have even taken to calling Scott "Uncle Tim" after the above statement.
As of this writing, nobody has called out Harris for making the exact same statement.
