California Senator Kamala Harris has dropped out of the 2020 presidential race. Harris dropped out after her campaign failed to raise enough donations to pay her staff.

Harris reportedly held a conference call with her campaign staff earlier Tuesday in Iowa where she explained that the campaign was having financial struggles.

Her campaign hadn't bought TV ads in months and she was forced to advertise on social media. Last month she laid off most of her campaign staff.

Harris, 55, polled poorly with Black voters who criticized her criminal justice record in California. Harris claimed she fought for criminal justice reform, but her critics say, as a prosecutor, she sent many Black men to prison.

Harris was former President Barack Obama's early choice for the Democratic nomination.

Harris' announcement on Tuesday comes after a disgruntled former staffer wrote a letter saying Harris treated her campaign staff like runaway slaves.

In the letter, obtained by The New York Times, Kelly Mehlenbacher wrote, "This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly."

Mehlenbacher added that she resigned from Harris' campaign because she saw no hope of Harris winning the nomination.

"With less than 90 days until Iowa we still do not have a real plan to win... We have refused to confront our mistakes, foster an environment of critical thinking and honest feedback, or trust the expertise of talented staff."

Harris is married to attorney Douglas Emhoff. They have no children.

Joe Biden has a sordid reputation for inappropriately touching minor children over the years. A video clip of Biden rambling on about children rubbing his hairy legs went viral on the Internet over the weekend.

In the video, Biden addresses a group of Black women and children on the campaign trail in Wilmington, N.C. He discussed the time he worked as a lifeguard at a desegregated swimming pool.

The video clip first made the rounds back in September, according to The Blaze. If the video is taken down before you get a chance to watch it, here is what he said.

"And by the way, you know I sit on the stand and it'd get hot. I got hairy legs that... turn blonde in the sun. The kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and watch the hair come back up again. They'd look at it. So I learned about roaches. I learned about kids jumping on my lap. And I love kids jumping on my lap."

Supporters say the video was taken out of context. The "roach" comment was in reference to something someone said earlier about roaches.

Former President Barack Obama reportedly told a Democratic candidate that Joe Biden "really doesn't have" a bond with the voters.

According to Politico's Ryan Lizza, Obama held meetings for Democratic candidates in his Washington, D.C. office earlier this year. The candidates were there seeking advice on how to evict President Donald Trump from the White House in 2020.

Lizza reported that Obama provided advice to candidates he met with. The meetings also gave him a chance to get to know each candidate to determine who is most likely to defeat Trump in next year's election.

According to Lizza's source, Obama offered the candidates advice about their strengths and weaknesses. Obama was reportedly "blunt" and honest with weaker candidates who didn't have what it took to defeat Trump.

"And you know who really doesn't have it? Joe Biden," Obama allegedly said.

Obama repeatedly declined to endorse Biden for President in the past, and he has kept his distance from his former vice president who has insurmountable issues that will weigh him down if he is nominated.

Presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke quit the 2020 race on Friday, Nov. 1, as his campaign runs out of cash and his base support dwindles. The 47-year-old Texas Congressman thanked his remaining supporters on Twitter on Friday evening.

"Our campaign has always been about seeing clearly, speaking honestly, and acting decisively. In that spirit: I am announcing that my service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee.

"Thank you for making this campaign possible, and for continuing to believe that we can turn this moment of great peril into a moment of great promise for America and the world."

President Trump was on Air Force One when O'Rourke dropped out of the race.

"Oh no, Beto just dropped out of race for President despite him saying he was "born for this," I don't think so!" he wrote in reference to O'Rourke's rock star cover story on Vanity Fair magazine.

When O'Rourke graced the April 2019 cover of Vanity Fair, he was considered the Democratic front runner for president.

"I want to be in it. Man, I'm just born to be in it," he said.

Entertainment guru Oprah Winfrey practically begged Beto to run for president at an event in New York in February, Vanity Fair reports.

But, according to Dailymail.com, O'Rourke struggled to raise cash for his campaign and began dropping in the polls. He only raised $4.5 million in July, August and September.

O'Rourke offered to support the eventual nominee and help to defeat President Trump.

"We will work to ensure that the Democratic nominee is successful in defeating Donald Trump in 2020," he wrote in a post on Medium.com. "I can tell you firsthand from having the chance to know the candidates, we will be well served by any one of them, and I'm going to be proud to support whoever she or he is."

Rosario Dawson says she's "in love" with long shot presidential candidate Cory Booker. The 40-year-old actress and the New Jersey senator opened up about their relationship to The Washington Post.

"I'm in love! I am absolutely in love, and it is so exciting," Dawson gushed.

"Look, both of us, you know, we've had relationships," Booker added, "but I'm not sure if I've ever fully given myself over to a relationship as much as I have with her and allowed myself to be as vulnerable."

Despite their declarations of love, Twitter users remained unconvinced that they are a heterosexual couple. Many insist Dawson is Booker's beard.

The slang "beard" is defined loosely as someone of the opposite sex who is hired or volunteers to help a homosexual pretend to be heterosexual.

Booker, 50, has been hounded by homosexual rumors for over 2 decades.

As far as anyone can tell, he has never had a serious relationship with a biological female.

Which explains why the then 49-year-old politician described behaving like an awkward schoolboy when they bumped into each other at an event in 2018.

"I mean, gosh, that night we talked for hours and hours," he recalled. "I had trouble asking for her phone number... I think I said something really stupid like, 'Uh, how would I get in touch with you?' And she mercifully said something like, 'Oh, you want my phone number?' And my insides were like, 'Hell, yeah!'"

But Twitter users are quick to point out their awkward body language and other discrepancies.

"Rosario Dawson may never win an Oscar but she's a shoe in for [the] Best Beard Award.," wrote one Twitter user.

Another user tweeted, "Rosario Dawson is taking one for the team. Pretending to be Cory Booker's girlfriend. In old Hollywood these women were called Beards."

And a third user tweeted: "Rosario Dawson with Cory Booker is a publicity thing nothing more. Dare I say she's his beard. When the election is over they'll mysteriously "part ways"

But Booker is already dreaming of a wedding in the Rose Garden of the White House - if by some miracle he wins the Democratic nomination.
