  • I like her smile, and the way she laugh :)

  • People will say No just because she's black alone. Shame on the people.

  • 😂😂😤run? Ok.

  • What a disgrace

  • Funny how she chuckles like a 5 year old when asked about running for president. Time for this woman to get back to the job she's been barely 2 years at or has she really been working or shamelessly promoting her political aspirations?

  • I support Kamala Harris for President because I believe that she would be a "superhero" for the nation.


  • Dems, no matter what y'all feel or think about Kamala Harris, please don't be too quick to demonize her and critizise her every word or every interview. At the end of the day, almost anyone is better than Donald Trump, and if you keep shooting down democratic candidates, there's a risk y'all won't have 'anyone' left when it comes down to it. Just saying.

  • What makes you happy? Where does your hope come from? Boy, those are some really hard hitting political questions.

  • Kamala - don't bother running. You screwed over Californians by not bringing charges against Steve Mnuchin, who was foreclosing left and right in a bank scam, thus allowing him to become Trump's Secretary of the Treasury. And we're supposed to vote for you after that? Guess again!

  • She's a FRAUD.

  • I just remember all the black men she has kept in jail, put in jail, made available to fight wild fires for $2 a day and her attempt at making truency a crime. But corporate Democrat is bad too😒😒Howard university and ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA SORORITY INCORPORATED should b very proud of....she has truly represented and protected the AADOS COMMUNITY

  • She’s at her best when she’s at the podium or on the debate stage. This isn’t her element. That said I’m excited to see what she can do moving forward


  • "I had sex with politicians in high places to get to where I am today." -- Kamala Harris -- 2020 Presidential Candidate

  • She should have pulled the Stan Lee quote

  • Disgusting. Idk which is worse.

  • She scared me with her laughter. Sounds creepy.

  • I feel bad for her . She would loose badly to trump .

  • Nasty filthy vile woman! California must have rigged elections or fools that vote for evil people.

  • On behalf of everybody with a brain....please run. I hope every American votes for you. Here in the Netherlands I'm still waiting for someone to wake me up and tell me it was all a bad dream.

  • At the end, I honestly thought Colbert was going to say at 'Trumps reading level'.

    • But Trump cant even read. And we all know that

  • Really? Hell No. Just look st California. She is part of a S hole state.

  • I love people that support Tusli over Harris, I get the frustration with "corporate Dems" but have you not seen Tulsi's past comments?

  • Oh I hope so...pleeeeze Kamela or is it Camela? Just curious...what has this "hag" done in all of her time in "office"? Nothing. Ask the Bologna Family, or the Kate Steinle Family...Camela, yes, that's it, CAMELa would be a joke except that many people have suffered because of this sh*t! Now she's posting how "hip" she is. Is that what a President needs? Hipness? It's unbelievable that we have Beeeetow, Camela, and Kirsten Gill., and oh yes, Pochahontas the one-millionth part Indian, all running for President...what a crew the demoncraps are fielding!

  • Officially "might" run. Okay. Breaking news!

  • Warren/ Harris 2020 !

  • Clymidia is an embarrassment to the country. She is arrogant, consenting and unwilling to protect the people of her state or of this country. She is a COMMUNIST!!

  • I'm definitely going to be voting for Trump in 2O2O. We don't need another woman, person of color, and especially a woman person of color yuck :)

  • The only real competition that Trump might have is possibly Beto...unless Beto posts a video of himself going to the dentist.....Never mind... Trump would have to be guilty of being a Russian spy to lose....Hey...what is all this about Trump being innocent must mean he's a Russian spy? Narrative twisting taken to a new level.

  • I "might" vomit....

  • I'm not even American but I WANT BERNIE DAMMIT!

  • I'd vote kamala

  • This lady laughs easily and with a real evil cackle. I can imagine she is hilarious after a few beers. On a professional level, she is intelligent, well informed, articulate and empathetic. These are qualities that help make a good leader.

  • kamala harris mother Shyamala Gopalan is East Asian which mean Kamala is East India - not Black - just like Obama she out to play black People to get into the white house - NoT Only is she stealing MLK day - who she Is Not connected to - share 0 % black People DNA -- she carries 80% East Asain genes Kamala - DNA is not Black America - not connected to Frederick Douglass - Just search her mother name Dr.Shyamala (Sky-amala) Gopalan - Every immigrant from India knew this and Now every Black America needs to know that not every Dark skin is not your people - no more waves of illegal migrants -- or flow of Immigrants here for Open Borders --

  • I loved when she was against reducing prison sentences for nonviolent offenders during overcrowding because the slave labor provided too much profit! That was so cool! #Kamala2020

  • Yay!

  • EVIL, NASTY woman ... maxine should run with her ... disgusting..

  • I’d love to vote for her or Biden.

  • She compared ICE to the klan. I wouldn’t even consider her.

  • Please run your amazing!

  • EVERYONE Please go to and sign the petition to have a constitutional amendment to end corporate personhood and say that money is not speech. The video "Legalize Democracy" here on youtube does a great job of explaining the historical context and why this is the first step in dealing with all of the major issues facing this country. We can fix it!

  • Harris pelosi Weinstein brown reasons why illegals are destroying California and the country

  • As a moderate, I’d prefer not to see her run. She’s not the best candidate

  • Blah blah blah. Wille Nelson for president.

  • She already won

  • she wont be getting my vote.

  • It couldn't be any worse than if Hillary won

  • No thank you Kamala. No Obama 2. You are just another shill like he was.

  • I've been planning to vote for her since Liddle donny stole the 2016 election. Unfortunately, 2016 was Bernie's last chance. 😞

  • I wonder when the last time Stephen had a republican on his show...

  • Show is so biased

  • What is she running for, moron of the year or baboon of the year?


  • Populism....populism...populism. We all know what happened the last time we heard stuff like that...

  • Seeing a lot of "Corporate" in the comments… Is this the latest Trump/GOP attempt at a slur?

  • Big words no substance... part of the clique... Time to reap is here. SWAMP becoming exposed ....

  • This is the second time I have seen Kamala Harris on Stephen's show and I have to say I like her she is intelligent, articulate, and has extensive governmental experience I would definitely vote for her; however, unfortunately I don't think Americans are ready for a female President there are too many white Male Chauvinist in the U.S. who won't accept a woman as President. But, I do think Corey Booker and Kamala Harris would make a great team presiding over America.


  • Kamala Harris would be a terrible candidate. When she was a District Attorney (and then Attorney General of California), there was a big increase in drug related convictions, and she attempted to block the release of nonviolent second-strike offenders on the grounds that would result in prisons losing an important labor pool. She also fought against a transgender prisoner having access to sex reassignment surgery, More recently she has been a strong supporter of anti-sex worker legislation and lead prosecutions against 'backpage', making it much harder for sex workers to safely find clients. She's not as bad as Trump, but isn't much better.

  • s it only me who thinks she was under the influence of something?.....she needs more time in the Senate before running for the presidency.

  • Even my family that is predominantly Democrat can't stand these idiots like Camal Harris or Elizabeth Warren. The presidency was given to Trump on a golden platter.

  • Bernie is our next Pres, and every dem should get smart fast and support a real revolution, and it has been 40 years in the making. Books are nice, but policy is king. Bernie is known as the ammendment king. He is the best role model America has right now, and his policies are what America demands.

  • I love how all these people are hating on her but these are the same people who voted for Trump, made him the President and are now regretting it. America is the best sitcom ever!😂😂😂

  • Do we have a candidate with less merchandise items please?

  • This lady was elected to do a job, not campaign for her own political gain. Congrats Democrats/California.

  • Look at them, the Right's lackeys holding court in the comment section, pretending to be liberals, already starting with a new catchphrase about corporations and mainstream. She must really frighten them.

  • That Hillary Clinton laugh though....

  • She slept her way to the top....of slick willie brown.

  • Russian bots at it again in the comments. Don't be fooled like 2016.

  • The wall is a waste of money... should just use minefields. But this makes me want Trump to go full mad hatter.

  • Donald Trump is my super hero. . He's mopping the floor with these bimbo's

  • what the frog is she laughing about?.. What a weirdo.

  • I'd vote for her. Shit we got trump right now...what could be worst.

  • When Kamala Harris was the Attorney General of California she refused to prosecute Steve Mnuchin's bank for illegal foreclosures on elderly and low income people's homes after the 2008 financial crisis (which was caused by the reckless banks). Despite the advice of her counsels, she did nothing to bring justice and prosecute Mnuchin's bank. In exchange, Steve Mnuchin contributed a couple of million dollars to her 2016 Senate campaign. Kamala is another Obama/Clinton. Same neoliberal shit. She ain't a progressive. I'd pick Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren over her any time, any day.

  • Well said! She speaks exactly like a politician. Words with no substance. I love it.

  • Good god.

  • 0:33 the same laugh when she runs America into the second Great Depression....

  • If she runs and she wins, immediately start the impeachment process. Democrats play book

  • Please run. Easy win for Trump in 2020.

  • Eow,Wow, the comments are filled with either brain dead people or Russians trolls🤷🏾‍♀️

  • I guess if you are anti-Catholic as well as anti-Christian generally and you are a firm believer in killing babies in the womb, Kamala has a place for you in her campaign. That should stir up the Communists in her party to a fever pitch.

  • 1:30 She talks about Noble Ideas and our Founding Fathers. Is she honoring old white men who kept slaves? Her base will love that. So I've reassessed my opinion of her. She cackles and shrieks like a psychopath *and* is a moron and a hypocrite as well. Please don't, although you probably will, get the wrong idea. I do honor our Founding Fathers but do not praise them with one breath and condemn them with an other; they must be judged in the context of their time.

  • Wow! Conservatives and Russians are out in force against this woman in the comments section. They must be living in fear...

  • WARREN 2020 where my grils at!?

  • As black person and Californian go get it girl.. but no lol

  • Good to see the russian bots at it again.

  • Please please please RUN!!!

  • Sad thing is , compared to other Democrats who might run she looks and acts almost normal.

  • Another George Soros Sock Puppet.🤦🏻‍♂️

  • Oooh they sent the trolls over for this one, lol.

  • HOW DO YOU GUYS NOT LIKE HER? you must not watch the news, because i see her day in day out always kicking ass in all of the committees, and not even thinking about who she is, until now when i see her run for president. if you are a democrat out there who doesn't think she is qualified to be president, i suggest doing some research

  • This lady is sinister. Uses to be hot tho...

  • So Where did the Democrat party find all these STUPID FEMALES ! MAN THEY ARE RAMPANT ! NO BRAINS NO GOALS WOW ! THANK GOD I SWITCHED. LATER ! Naw.

  • Does this awkward pantsuit mom, give anyone Hilary flashbacks.

  • Everybody want to write a so hot like a fire...what a matter who’s the president same busshit

  • Its official the democrats have... no game plan.

  • I'd vote for her!

  • Please run Senator Camel Harris! 🐫

  • White men afraid of strong, successful, smart women! “Corporate Dems” wtf? Kamala is not corporate!
