Democratic presidential candidate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), appeared to agree with a supporter who called President Trump “mentally retarded” during a campaign rally in New Hampshire on Friday.

When confronted about the remarks on Saturday, Harris, however, claimed she did not hear the derogatory statement and called the remark offensive.

“I don’t buy that argument that impeachment does not make sense; the Senate will acquit. I don’t buy that argument. There needs to be accountability. What are you going to do in the next one year to diminish the mentally retarded actions of this guy,” asked a man at her rally to which led to applaud and laughter.

“Well said,” Harris responded laughing. “Well said. I plan to win this election, I’ll tell you that.”

CBS News reporter, Caitlin Huey-Burns caught up with Harris on Saturday and asked about the exchange during a New Hampshire Democratic party rally. “It’s an incredibly offensive term,” Harris said of the “mentally retarded” term.

“It’s offensive, and you would think that in the year 2019, people would have a much better understanding how hurtful a term like that can be but also the history behind it, which is the history of really ignoring the needs and the realities and the capacity of our disabilities community.” (Continued Below)

“You didn’t correct him though. Did you hear him?” Burns asked Harris.

“I heard him talk about the other stuff. And then that came later. And it was not something that I really heard or processed, or you know, in any way condone, that’s for sure,” Harris claimed.

However, Sen. Harris got blasted on social media as people did not believe that she “did not hear” her fan call President Trump “mentally retarded.” (Video Below)
