Harris delivered a speech at the DNC meeting Friday and reportedly had dozens of supporters — purportedly supplied by her campaign — who cheered during her speech and promptly left after it was finished.

That video went viral, and generated lots of outraged social media commentary, but the full video of the event shows that the group, likely volunteers, didn’t “walk out on” Bernie at all. As Senator Harris finishes her speech and hugs other participants while her exit music plays, the chants of “She’s smart! She’s strong! With Kamala, you can’t go wrong!” can clearly be heard, already underway.

To do that, I believe we must have the ability to successfully prosecute the case against four more years of Donald Trump, and itll take a prosecutor to do that,” she said, repeating one of her key lines.

On Friday, Sanders supporter and Young Turks alum John Graziano posted video of the Harris contingent filing out of the DNC meeting with chants of “She’s smart! She’s strong! With Kamala, you can’t go wrong!”, along with his own aggrieved description: “Kamala staffers walking out on Bernies speech to the DNC. Theyre now yelling outside the hall as Bernie begins to speak.”

“Kamala Harris’s speech at the DNC was boosted by a cheering section of about 40 people that her campaign brought in, erupting every time she hit a big line — and then that group got up and walked out as soon as she finished,” Dovere wrote:

Once Sanders begins to speak, the chants of “She’s smart! She’s strong! With Kamala, you can’t go wrong!” are still audible from the hall outside, but by Graziano’s own admission, they had already left, and they weren’t “yelling,” they were continuing their chant of enthusiastic support.

A viral video purports to show staffers for California Senator Kamala Harris ” walking out on” Bernie Sanders’ speech to the Democratic National Committee’s summer meeting in San Francisco, but full video of the event shows that this is not the case.

Chants of Shes smart! Shes strong! With Kamala, you cant go wrong! also broke out among her ground-level hype team, following her speech:

Harris has been losing support following her lackluster performance in the second debate. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), who was, by most measures, declared the winner of the second Democrat debate in Detroit, grilled Harris on her prosecutorial record, further halting Harris’s momentum.

Graziano later tweeted that the incident shows that “This woman is far too incompetent to be trusted with the nomination.”

A CNN poll released this week showed the California senator dropping a whopping 12 points since June, descending from 17 percent to five percent support. The current RealClearPolitics average shows Harris in a distant fourth place, with 7.4 percent support.
