For 4 years now, Democrats’ favorite focal point has been accusing President Donald Trump of accepting foreign aid in order to defeat Hilary Clinton in 2016.
Of course, that has been disproven time and time again.
I wonder if they would be just as concerned if a Vice Presidential candidate was offered up a secretly recorded foreign video tape to help take down her opponent…
Kamala Harris and her team really need to learn to properly vet their phone calls.
The VP candidate was duped by some Russian pranksters who pretended to be Greta Thunberg in a phone call discussing climate change and President Donald Trump.
At one point during the recording, the Greta imperesonator and someone pretending to be her father, offer Kamala Harris a “recording” of Trump allegedly whispering to Thunberg: “You will never achieve the goal.”
Kamala Harris appeared to accept the offer as she jubilantly resonded: “Thank you, that would be wonderful.”
This is the same woman who is supposed to take attention away from the many gaffes of presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Our frends at Fox News have the scoop on this embarassing moment for the Biden/Harris campaign:
Russian pranksters tricked Kamala Harris by pretending to be Greta Thunberg in a phone call as they discussed climate change and Donald Trump.
The US Sun can reveal the infamous duo of Vovan and Lexus got a chat with Joe Biden's VP as they posed as Greta Thunberg offering dirt on Trump.
Exclusive audio of the three-minute chat has California senator Kamala enthusiastically greeting who she thought was the teenage climate activist over the phone in around January.
"Greta" claims she has "nightmares" about meeting Trump at the U.N. last September as they talk over Kamala's climate plan and her campaign.
The pranksters then say that they have a secret recording of Trump whispering "you will never achieve the goal" to Greta.
"Greta" and a prankster posing as her dad Svante then offer to provide the audio to help the campaign.
Kamala replies: "Thank you, that would be wonderful".
It is illegal to record people's conversations without both parties' consent in 15 states - but not in New York where "Greta" claims she recorded Trump.
Security experts branded the prank a "wake up call" and said Kamala's team failed to carry out simple checks to verify who was on the other end of the phone.
Russian duo Vovan and Lexus - real names Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov - have carried out a string of high profile prank calls, including tricking Prince Harry and Bernie Sanders.
The audio has been revealed days after Harris was named Biden's choice for VP as battlelines are drawn for the 2020 presidential election.
It also comes as Biden and Harris were officially crowned as the Democrats' White House challengers at a showstopping party convention.
Harris officially accepted the Democratic vice-presidential nomination on Wednesday on a night when Barack Obama launched a blistering attack on his successor, Trump.
The prank call - which happened after Harris dropped out of the Democratic race in December - begins as Kamala says: "Hello Greta, congratulations on all of your leadership, I am so inspired by your courage and your voice."
"Greta" then asks if there is anyway she can support Kamala's campaign, saying it would be "cool".
Speaking at the U.S. Senate in Washington DC, the Democrat says she would like "Greta" to talk about her climate plan and encourages her to follow up with her policy team - with any support being "very helpful".
"Greta" claims she has tried to speak to other politicians but not had any luck, and she laments being slammed by Russian leader Vladimir Putin was "not what I wanted".
Kamala replies: "There are forces working against our movement and we have to fight for these things.
"This is that moment, and you have been great warrior in this cause."
The pranksters then claims "Greta" cannot eat or sleep when she sees Trump - saying she is "terrified" of what he is doing, and saying the meeting at the UN was "terrible".
"Greta" says she shouted at Trump in a corridor urging him sign the Paris climate agreement.
She adds that the President came over and "softly" whispered "you will never achieve the goal" in her ear.
The pranksters try to keep up the fake anecdote as "Greta" says "he continued, he continued".
But they are cut off by Kamala who offers words of encouragement for her cause.
"Nothing that has been achieved in this world that has been about progress came without a fight, this is the nature of it, " Kamala said.
"Greta" describes Trump's actions as "sick" - and then Svante offers up the recording to help "against this terrible man".
Kamala seems interested in getting a copy of the audio - but then she goes to end the call, saying "I look forward to working with you".
"Greta" and "Svante" then say they will be in the U.S. soon and offer to meet up with Kamala, saying "I hope you won't arrest us".
She can be heard saying "I don't want to go to jail" in the background as Kamala says "no, no, no".
Kamala finishes the call saying "I look forward to seeing you, be well, and I'll talk to you soon, bye bye".
TheNew York Post has more of the conversation:
One of the jokesters posing as Thunberg’s father, Svante, on the call tells Harris that the faux teen “has a recorder always with her” and that it picked up the bogus interaction with Trump.
“It was on Greta’s recorder. If you would like to get it, we can provide it,” the man says.
The fake Greta chimes in, “Maybe this recording can help you,” to which Harris responds: “Thank you. That would be wonderful.”
“I can testify against this terrible man,” the trickster tells Harris, who replied, “Yes, definitely, thank you so much.”
Before Harris moved to end the call, she said an aide “will follow up with you and we will stay in touch and work together. I look forward to working with you.”
The man then told Harris that they were in Canada and would be in the US soon.
“Oh good, we should make a plan then. I would like that,” Harris said.
This is a real bad look for the Biden/Harris campaign.
The Democrats have all but admitted that Biden is a placeholder for their real candidate, Harris.
If that's the case, then their eggs are all in one basket.
Unfortunately, it seems that the entire Biden/Harris campaign may be run by basket cases.
