Kamala Harris Tries to Embarrass Donald Trump Jr. - Gets Reality Check
President's son starts and ends Twitter war with presidential candidate
A short Twitter war was ignited between Donald Trump Jr. and 2020 hopeful California Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), before the president's son spectacularly ended the spat with some cold hard facts.
Trump Jr. posted a video of Harris awkwardly laughing during an interaction with someone in the audience, along with a tweet:
“Why is @KamalaHarris the only person that laughs at her jokes… always way to long and way too hard.?“
"The most disingenuous person in politics… after Hillary.”
Harris replied with a tweet calling the president a "joke."
“You wouldn’t know a joke if one raised you,” Harris tweeted.
But it didn't end there.
Trump Jr. referred to Harris’s anemic polling numbers:
"Based on your tanking poll numbers, what’s definitely a joke is your entire campaign, Yikes!," he replied.

Harris has plummeted recently in August polling, from the mid-teens to around 5 percent.
Earlier this month, Harris (D-CA) got an unexpected response when she asked a crowd if America was "ready" for her presidency.
But some of the audience members shouted back "no," leaving the California senator stunned.
Harris was speaking at a town hall event in Reno, Nevada, telling attendees that she wanted to "engage in real talk" about her campaign for the presidential race.
"In this election, in the last couple- I mean, maybe couple of months, certainly a few weeks, there's this whole conversation that has been coming up about electability focused on our campaign," Harris said.
