Senator Kamala Harris is not here for Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's opinion of Donald Trump's allegedly favoring Norweigan immigrants over those from Haiti and certain African nations.

In a testimony, Nielsen claimed she didn't see an issue with Trump wanting hardworking Norwegian immigrants in the United States. But Harris was quick to respond that by saying that, Nielsen was also saying immigrants from Haiti and African countries do not work hard

"You spoke of them, according to the president, as the people of Norway—well, you know, they work very hard—the inference being the people of the 54 states of Africa and Haiti do not," said Harris. "That is a fair inference."

The alleged remarks have especially been criticized since Haiti and the African continent bring mostly black immigrants while Norway would bring white immigrants. But Nielsen, who again, is the secretary of Homeland Security said she wasn't aware Norway is a predominantly white country. Harris called bullshit.

"You run the Department of Homeland Security," said Harris. "And when you say you don’t know if Norway is predominantly white when asked by a member of the United States Senate, that causes me concern about your ability to understand the scope of your responsibilities and the impact of your words—much less the policies that you promulgate in that very important department."

All we know is we're ready for the Winfrey-Harris ticket, or should it be Harris-Winfrey?
