Sen. Kamala Harris referred to herself as a “top-tier candidate” and belittled Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s poll numbers during an interview after Wednesday’s Democratic presidential debate.“[T]his is going to sound immodest, but I’m obviously a top-tier candidate, and so I did expect that I would be on the stage and take hits tonight, because there are a lot of people that are trying to make the stage for the next debate,” Harris said in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper shortly after the debate.“Especially when some people are at zero or 1%, or whatever she might be at. So I did expect that I might take hits tonight,” she continued, making a clear reference to Gabbard.Harris was miffed that Gabbard called on her to apologize for her record as San Francisco district attorney and California’s attorney general.“There is no excuse for that and the people who suffered under your reign as prosecutor. You owe them an apology,” Gabbard said to Harris in a brutal debate stage takedown.Gabbard then offered a scathing review of Harris’ prosecutorial record.“She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana,” said Gabbard, referring to Harris admitting in February that she smoked marijuana as a student at Howard University.
