  • It's no surprise that the 2020 presidential  election was a tense run. President Donald  

  • Trump often referred to President-elect  Joe Biden as "Sleepy Joe" and brought up  

  • the Swine Flu as evidence that Biden could  not take over a pandemic-stricken America.  

  • On the other hand, Biden dug into the  reignited Black Lives Matter movement  

  • in America and declared Trump "one of the most  racist presidents we've had in modern history."

  • Vice President-elect Kamala Harris also  received her fair share of disapproval  

  • from Trump. In an interview following the  October 2020 vice presidential debate,  

  • Trump called Harris a "monster" and  "unlikeable." It's safe to assume  

  • that any person running for political office is  prepared to face the fiercest criticism. However,  

  • Harris might not have anticipated the  latest reason she's in hot water. An  

  • interview Harris did with Elle magazine has  resurfaced, and it's already haunting her.

  • The Elle interview from October 2020 is making  the rounds again because people are accusing  

  • the vice president-elect of plagiarizing  Martin Luther King Jr. In the interview,  

  • Harris tells a story supposedly from her  childhood about when she became briefly  

  • separated from her mother at a civil  rights march in Oakland, California,  

  • after falling out of her stroller. Once they  reunited, Harris says this exchange happened:

  • "My mother tells the story about  how I'm fussing, and she's like,  

  • 'Baby, what do you want? What do you need?' And  I just looked at her and I said, 'Fweedom.'”

  • Several Twitter users noted that the story  is shockingly similar to one told by MLK  

  • in a January 1965 interview with  Playboy magazine. In his narrative,  

  • the civil rights icon tells a story of a 7-  or 8-year-old Black girl who marched with her  

  • mom in a protest in Birmingham, Alabama, and  was accosted by policemen. According to King,

  • "'What do you want?' the policeman asked her  gruffly, and the little girl looked at him  

  • straight in the eye and answered, 'Fee-dom.'  She couldn't even pronounce it, but she knew.  

  • It was beautiful! Many times whenhave been in sorely trying situations,  

  • the memory of that little one has come  into my mind, and has buoyed me.”"

  • This is not the first time Harris has used  this "Fweedom" anecdote. She referenced it  

  • in her 2010 book Smart on Crime and detailed  it again in her 2019 book The Truths We Hold:  

  • An American Journey. She also told the  story to Jimmy Fallon in June 2020.

  • "And she said, 'Kamala, what do you want?'  And I said, and this is how she would say  

  • it, and she said, 'Kamala, what do  you want?' and I said, 'Fweedom.'"

  • Naturally, people took to the internet to  air their grievances about Kamala Harris'  

  • strikingly familiar story. One Twitter user wrote,

  • "She is learning how to plagiarize and lie  like Biden. They make a good con artist team."

  • Another person wondered why she didn't  just give credit to Martin Luther King  

  • Jr. instead of possibly fabricating  an entire story. And several people,  

  • in fact, mentioned that Harris was following  in the footsteps of Joe Biden. The former vice  

  • president came under fire in 2019 for his "Plan  for a Clean Energy Revolution and Environmental  

  • Justice," which included sentences copied directly  from environment groups with no credit given,  

  • according to NBC News. This was not the  first time he had been accused of plagiarism.

  • Opponents of Biden and Harris had previously  used plagiarism accusations as a way to weaken  

  • the public's trust in the team. Sean Hannity  of Fox News reminded his viewers in July 2020,

  • "Plagiarism [is] nothing new  for Joe Biden. In the 1980s,  

  • he was forced to end his presidential campaign  [when] he was caught red-handed plagiarizing  

  • a British politician by the name of Neil  Kinnock word-for-word on multiple occasions."

  • Furthermore, people were quick to point out  that this isn't the first time Harris has  

  • been associated with plagiarism. Politico reported  in 2019 that Harris appeared to plagiarize parts  

  • of the since-deleted gender equality section  of her website. The publication noticed that  

  • Harris seemed to use information from the American  Heart Association website also without citation.

  • The vice president-elect has not  addressed the most recent allegations,  

  • as of the making of this video.
