On Friday, the senator tweeted the video and wrote, “After we found out Trump was going to win, there was no question that justice was on the line. I told my team we had to fight. And that’s what I’ve done.”

FoxNews.com points out that the video shows Harris telling an intimate crowd how her godson was crying over Donald Trump’s apparent election victory.
“So we just had a small family dinner. And many of you have met my… godson, Alexander,” she began. “So Alexander came up to me about twenty minutes ago, and he was teary. And… I said come here, little man. What’s going on? And he looked up at me, I swear to God, he looked up at me and he said, ‘I don’t want Trump to win. Did he win?’ And he’s crying.”
She continued, “So the tears of joy we shed when we elected Barack Obama, and then my little godson’s tears tonight, because we might have elected Donald Trump — this is some s***.”
Harris didn’t stop there with her profane rant, telling the crowd that between immigration, criminal justice reform and climate change, “this s**t is now really on the line.”
“I think there is no question that everything that we have been talking about in terms of everything from criminal justice reform to climate change, to immigration, this s**t is now really on the line,” she said. “We have to be like superheroes… We’re going to have to fight.”As far as the Democratic primary race goes, Harris appears to be struggling in the polls. Despite an initial bump after her “That little girl was me” debate jab at former Vice President Joe Biden where she doubled her average support, the California senator’s numbers have since been on a steady decline.
Currently, Harris trails behind Biden, Warren, Sanders and Buttigeig, averaging 4.5 percent support, according to Real Clear Politics.
