Published on January 24, 2019

Almost a month into the longest government shutdown in history, people everywhere are asking for a change.

Social media status from furloughed government employees are shedding light on a situation that many are overlooking due to the false idea that one person’s job doesn’t affect the next.

Harris is known for being an advocate for criminal justice reform as well as being tough on tackling crime, which has garnered her unfavorable opinions from celebrities such as reality star, K. Michelle who took to Twitter to proclaim her disdain for the senator.

And as hecklers start rallying to discredit her legitimacy, due to the fact that her parents were not legal citizens at the time of her birth, those who know the facts have stepped up to shut down such claims. WUSA9 in Washington D.C. threw out constitutional verbiage to remind the public not to make false accusations without knowing the rules of the race.
