On Thursday’s episode of "The Michael Knowles Show," Michael discussed the "hypocrisy" of Kamala Harris, "#MeToo hero."

 

"So, Kamala Harris, senator from California, former attorney general of California, she has been an early lead [for presidential nomination]. I’ve said that she’s probably the scariest person right now, scariest in that we don’t know much about her. She’s clearly pretty intelligent. She checks off the intersectional boxes of the left," he said. "Just today, just out today, there’s a negative news story about her."

Knowles explained how Larry Wallace, a former senior advisor to Harris while she served as AG, settled a $400,000 lawsuit for gender discrimination and harassment during Harris’ transition from the California attorney general’s office to the senate.

"That’s my tax money, anyone else who’s listening in California, that’s your tax money paying that out," he said. "And where it gets pretty dicey for her is that they asked Kamala Harris what about this major lawsuit almost half a million dollars for one of your senior advisors sexually harassing some woman, and Harris’s office said they had no awareness of it. They had no idea what was going on."

"This is not believable," he stressed. "This is not believable at all. This guy has worked with her in all of her major jobs, and this lawsuit occurred on her watch. So, either she’s lying, which obviously she is, or she’s totally incompetent. The office is totally incompetent if they’ve never heard of this. But it’s just not possible."

Knowles discussed how Harris’ successor to California AG would have been the one who settled the suit, adding even more doubt to the story that the Democrat lawmaker knew nothing about it. And to make matters worse, the alleged victim is forbidden to go to the media with her story.

This, said Knowles, is the highest form of hypocrisy: "Kamala Harris positioned herself as the champion of the #MeToo movement. Kamala Harris was there going after Brett Kavanaugh during all of those hearings. She believes Christine Blasey Ford. She opposes Brett Kavanaugh. All but painted Brett Kavanaugh to be some gang rapist. And we need the truth to be heard!"

"The major mechanism of the #MeToo movement is the media," Knowles explained. "Without the women going to the media there is no such thing as a #MeToo movement. The whole point of the #MeToo movement was these women feared profession reprisal. They had been backed into settlements where they couldn’t talk about anything. They were afraid of all of these sorts of things. Afraid for their careers."

Video and transcript below:

So, Kamala Harris, senator from California, former attorney general of California, she has been an early lead [for presidential nomination]. I’ve said that she’s probably the scariest person right now, scariest in that we don’t know much about her. She’s clearly pretty intelligent. She checks off the intersectional boxes of the left. She doesn't have the baggage that all of these other people do. Creepy Joe Biden, Pocahontas Liz Warren, all of the rest of them, Spartacus Corey Booker. So, that’s the fear. Just today, just out today, there’s a negative news story about her.

 

It turns out, that Larry Wallace, who worked for Kamala Harris as attorney general of California and was a senior adviser to her in the Senate, may have sexually harassed an employee of his or an underling of his. And this occurred during the transition for the AG of California office to the Senate. And so California has had to pay out four-hundred thousand dollars to settle the lawsuit. That’s my tax money, anyone else who’s listening in California, that’s your tax money paying that out. And where it gets pretty dicey for her is that they asked Kamala Harris what about this major lawsuit almost half a million dollars for one of your senior advisors sexually harassing some woman, and Harris’s office said they had no awareness of it. They had no idea what was going on.

This is not believable. This is not believable at all. This guy has worked with her in all of her major job, and this lawsuit occurred on her watch. So, either she’s lying, which obviously she is, or she’s totally incompetent. The office is totally incompetent if they’ve never heard of this. But it’s just not possible. So, if the lawsuit’s being handled by California, what has happened is that she goes to the Senate, she takes this guy Larry Wallace with her, he has since left, and the new attorney general of California, Xavier Bacerra is the one who had to handle the settlement of this lawsuit. And so he settled the lawsuit. Does anyone really believe that Bacerra didn’t talk to the Harris office? It’s not even possible because Bacerra would’ve had to have talked to Wallace about the lawsuit and Wallace was a senior advisor on the Senate staff at that time. So just simply not believable.

But what’s really going to hurt her in this is not the lawsuit that she had some employee who maybe sexually harassed somebody, I mean i think that’s true of every single political office in the country. What’s going to hurt her is that part of the settlement is that this woman, Danielle Hartley, the employee making the accusations, is not allowed to speak to the media, is not allowed to talk about her experience as part of the settlement.

Okay, that’s fine. She’s getting half a million dollars almost, I guess she can keep quiet about whatever demeaning comments the guy made to her or harassing comments, but Kamala Harris positioned herself as the champion of the #metoo movement. Kamala Harris was there going after Brett Kavanaugh during all of those hearings. She believes Christine Blasey Ford. She opposes Brett Kavanaugh. All but painted Brett Kavanaugh to be some gang rapist. And we need the truth to be heard! And they’ve got Alyssa Milano sitting in the rows. We need to be heard! Women’s march! Me too! And then you find out that one of her employees, the office settled this sexual harassment lawsuit by shutting up the woman, saying don’t talk about it. You can’t go to the media.

 

The major mechanism of the #metoo movement is the media. Without the women going to the media there is no such thing as a #metoo movement. The whole point of the #metoo movement was these women feared profession reprisal. They had been backed into settlements where they couldn’t talk about anything. They were afraid of all of these sorts of things. Afraid for their careers. And then they go to Ronan Farrow at the New Yorker and then there’s a big expose and enough of these exposes take down the guy in question. This one is going to require some answering.
