To no one’s surprise, Democrat Senator Kamala Harris announced she was running for president in 2020 on ABC’s Good Morning America Monday, and the network couldn’t have been more thrilled. ABC flooded their Twitter account with memes they made of Harris’s image superimposed with inspirational quotes and links to her 2020 announcement on GMA. During the interview, anchors Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos largely threw softballs and didn’t ask Harris about her party’s problem with anti-Semitism.

ROBERTS: Is that important to you?

And asking about her book tour:

Instead of grilling Harris, Stephanopoulos let her rip on President Trump, asking if he had committed an “impeachable offense:”

President - Trump - Senate - Intelligence - Committee

President Trump has already said he wants to run again in 2020. You sit on the Senate Intelligence Committee. The Senate Judiciary Committee. You have been looking at the Russia investigation. Have you seen any evidence that President Trump has committed an...
