Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was called out this week over a misleading Twitter video featuring a statement from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

In her tweet, which has since been rated "false" by fact-checking website Politifact and The Washington Post, Harris claimed that the 11-second clip proved Kavanaugh wants to "[take] away a woman’s constitutionally protected right to make her own health care decisions."

Observers quickly pointed out that the statement omitted a key phrase from Kavanaugh in which he made it clear he was summarizing a religious group's position on birth control drugs, not expressing his own view.

Harris later shared the full answer, but defended her position, writing, "There's no question that he uncritically used the term 'abortion-inducing drugs,' which is a dog whistle term used by extreme anti-choice groups to describe birth control."

Other top Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, also criticized Kavanaugh over the answer, despite the claim receiving "Four Pinocchios" from the Washington Post's fact-checkers.

Responding on "The Story," Fox News' Guy Benson said Harris' claims are even more embarrassing for Democrats than Sen. Cory Booker's (D-N.J.) "Spartacus" antics during the confirmation hearing. 

"The worst performance was from Senator Kamala Harris. ... [She] lied about what he said and took it out of context and then the entire left and some of the media ran with it," said Benson.
