Presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris in an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” back in April 2018 laughed hysterically while joking about killing President Trump and members of his administration in an imagined elevator emergency scenario.
During a segment called “20 Questions,” Harris was asked towards the end of the rapid-fired light-hearted questions: “If you had to be stuck in an elevator with either President Trump, Mike Pence or Jeff Sessions who would it be?”
After rolling her eyes and turning her head away for a split second, Harris quipped “Does one of us have to come out alive?” then hysterically laughing for several seconds. The audience would then follow suit and roared into laughter from Harris response, with DeGeneres putting down her question cue cards to clap and dying into laughter.

Just imagine if the roles were reversed and a Republican was asked about being stuck in an imaginary elevator with Democrat officials or their potential opponent and their response is the same joke Harris said. The mainstream media would be going berserk, especially the liberal ones, playing the clip every hour by the hour on every show with a segment devoted to the response and talking heads overanalyzing it.
