Democrats love to tell other people what to do as they do whatever they want.
California Sen. Kamala Harris officially announced her candidacy for president on Sunday in Oakland and there was something interesting about it.
As she attacked President Donald Trump’s administration for wanting a border fence it seems her campaign announcement was protected by security fences.
“Because of security the streets are blocked off around the @KamalaHarris rally but the crowds are filling the streets beyond in Oakland,” CNN reporter Maeve Reston said with video of the fences.

Interesting that she talked about fences being evil and kids being in cages as she literally had people in cages and behind fences, The Daily Mail reported on the rest of the event.
Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris formally launched her presidential bid Sunday in her hometown of Oakland, Calif., vowing to ‘lead with integrity’ and ‘speak the truth’ in a speech containing rebukes to President Donald Trump’s leadership.
‘With faith in God, with fidelity to country, and with the fighting spirit I got from my mother, I stand before you today to announce my candidacy for president of the United States,’ she told a cheering crowd of 20,000 supporters.
‘And as we embark on this campaign, I will tell you this, I am not perfect. Lord knows I am not perfect. But I will always speak with decency and moral clarity and treat all people with dignity and respect. I will lead with integrity, and I will speak the truth,’ she added.
Harris, 54, entered the race with the potential advantage of being the Democratic candidate who looks most like the party’s increasingly diverse base of young, female and minority voters.
‘I’m running for president because I love my country. I’m running to be president of the people, by the people and for all people,’ she told her hometown crowd.
She spoke before a giant American flag with yellow and purple campaign signs waving in the crowd behind her. Her campaign music showed her personality: she came out to ‘Work That’ by Mary J. Blige and exited the stage after her speech to the mixtape version of ‘My Shot’ from the musical ‘Hamilton.
Her address was filled with soaring rhetoric and repeated the line ‘let’s speak the truth’ as one of the passion points of her campaign.
But her words also featured pointed criticism of President Trump, charging him with making America ‘weaker.’
‘Under this administration, America’s position in the world has never been weaker. When democratic values are under attack around the globe, when authoritarianism is on the March, when nuclear proliferation is on the rise, when we have foreign powers infecting the White House like malware, let’s speak that truth. And let’s speak truth about what are clear and present dangers. And let’s speak the biggest truth, the biggest truth of all. In the face of powerful forces trying to sow hate and division among us, the truth is that as Americans, we have so much more in common that what separates us,’ she said.
She slammed Trump’s idea of a border wall as ‘a medieval vanity project’ and criticized the administration for its immigration policy.
‘When we have children in cages, crying for their mothers and fathers, don’t you dare call that border security, that’s human rights abuse,’ Harris said.
What a POS.
