Kamala Harris: ‘We all have PTSD from 2016’
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate Senator Kamala Harris, D-CA, lamented to voters in Troy, Michigan this week that “we all have” Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from the 2016 election when President Donald Trump won.
“You guys are seriously, you guys are seriously gonna make this happen,” Harris said. “You know that. I mean, you know, we all have PTSD from 2016, yes.”
Harris explained how Democrats can learn from the mistakes of 2016, highlighting that “in Michigan, we missed that election on average by two votes per precinct, think about that.”
She said, “Two votes per precinct on average. And what that tells us, right, is we want to be motivated by optimism and understanding what we know and what we have the power to do. Ifwe just turn out just an extra three or four more votes per district, we win. Right? Per precinct. So, this is doable. We can do this. We will do this. We’re gonna do this. We’re gonna elect Joe Biden the next president of the United States. Yes we are. Yes we are and you guys are gonna do this.”
