Democratic senator Kamala Harris tore the way Donald Trump described the operation to eliminate ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and compare the tone of the president with video game commentary.
The presidential candidate was asked about the news in an appearance on the Seth Meyers show after the Trump press conference on Sunday where he shared dramatic details of the raid – including details that al-Baghdadi died & # 39; wailing & # 39; that top Pentagon officials would not verify.
& # 39; Donald Trump – that press conference was extraordinary, & # 39; she said to Meyers in front of a studio audience. & # 39; You would think he was talking about watching and commenting on a video game, & # 39; Harris told him during the & # 39; Late Night & # 39; show it was broadcast on Monday evening.

& # 39; He is the supreme commander. The supreme commander of the United States of America has the highest priority of responsibility to worry, "she said, to applaud the public with the security of our nations and he of our homeland," # 39; she said.
& # 39; At every step (it) it becomes clear that he should not find the importance of the work, which must be done with integrity, in a way that is solemn and understands what is at stake, & # 39; she said.
Harris praised special troops who, she says, did not get the honor they deserve. She raised President Trump's attacks on the CIA on the Russian probe and said the nation had a president who has been attacking the integrity and professionalism and sacrifice of those professionals all the time. she said. She congratulated those troops – but not Trump – with the attack.

Trump stringed his remarks with cinematic details, many according to NBC, concerned officials whose job it is to maintain secrecy and tactical advantage. Trump described the role of a & # 39; talented & # 39; dog used by American troops, the eight helicopters that entered, the dramatic decision to use explosives to enter the compound where the fugitive hiding place was hiding, and Baghdad's decision to blow himself up at the end of the tunnel.
& # 39; At every step (it) it becomes clear that he should not find the importance of the work, which must be done with integrity, in a way that is solemn and understands what is at stake, & # 39; Harris said.
Another late night host, Jimmy Kimmel, took pleasure in Trump's behavior during his Sunday White House statement, addressing former President Barack Obama to the nation after Osama bin Laden's death.
In the edited clip, Obama speaks in a deadly serious tone, unlike Trump who says: “They've shot a lot, they've shot a lot, not even through the front door. You know you would think – you go through the door. If you are a normal person, say "knock knock. Can I come in?"
Meyers also asked Harris about her views on accusations as a former prosecutor in California. & # 39; We have a clear picture of guilt awareness when they then tried to put the transcript in a secret computer. We have a cover-up, that's that, & she said. & # 39; And we have a confession. And as a former public prosecutor, I know a confession when I see it. … The American public, we know what we see. And to be honest, someone should tell Donald Trump that he has the right to remain silent, & she said.
