As long as there’s video for social media, there will be people selectively-editing, commiting rampant bias-by-omission, and going out of their way to play those easily swayed and too ignorant or lazy to search for context.
In other words, deception is way too easy for smarmy politicians.
U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris is facing backlash after several fact-checkers questioned a heavily edited video from her office that depicts Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as anti-women. Harris, a California Democrat and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee — which will decide if Kavanaugh gets a lifetime appointment to the nation’s highest court — tweeted out the clip, which shows Kavanaugh mentioning the term “abortion-inducing drugs,” a term that Harris slammed as “a dog whistle for going after birth control.”

“Heavily edited” is an understatement.
BTW — Isn’t it an insult to common sense when any “pro-choice” politician advocates for the killing of the unborn but can’t be seen enough being pictured with… children?
Had Senator Harris expected any scrutiny for such a misleading social media post, she may or may not have put it out. But as she expected to get a pass from the liberal Democrat media, and as long as she scared a few hundred thousand midterm wimmim voters, abortion-on-demand (the killing of unborn babies for the convenience of the promiscuous) is all that counts.
