Watch: Kamala Harris calls Tulsi Gabbard an 'apologist' for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad
Last night Rep. Tulsi Gabbard went straight for top-tier candidate Kamala Harris at the Democratic debate.

She said Kamala Harris had blocked evidence that would have exonerated a man on death row “until the courts forced her to do so”. She also accused her of using prisoners as “cheap labor” for California.

But Harris did not back down: “As the elected attorney general of California, I did the work of significantly reforming the criminal justice system of a state of 40 million people, which became a national model for the work that needs to be done.” She said she was “proud” of that work.

That exchange was raised again in post-debate interviews where Harris swatted away Gabbard and called her an “apologist” for the murderous Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

It didn’t get better for Gabbard later either.
