While talking about Syria and Turkey during Tuesday night's Democratic debate in Ohio, Sen. Kamala Harris said something that had the internet taking notice.
“What Donald Trump has done because of that phone call with Erdogan is basically giving 10,000 ISIS fighters a get out of jail free card,” Harris said. “And you know who the winner is in this? There are four. Russia, Iran, (Syrian President Bashar) Assad and ISIS. This is a crisis of Donald Trump’s making and it is on a long list of crises of Donald Trump’s making and that’s why dude got to go. And when I am commander in chief, we will stop this madness.”
"This is a crisis of Donald Trump's making... and that's why dude gotta go, and why when I am commander-in-chief we will stop this madness."

Newsweek columnist Seth Abramson tweeted, "I think Kamala just said 'dude gotta go' but I may have misheard because did that really just happen.

This debate so far, essentially: Dude gotta go. And he will be beaten like a drum. Because this is a dumpster fire. And I wrote the damn bill.— Matt Viser (@mviser) October 16, 2019
This isn't the first time Harris has used the phrase "Dude gotta go." She's used it on the campaign trail and in a previous debate. Her campaign is already selling shirts with the phrase.
