Democrat White House hopeful Kamala Harris asked a crowd whether America was ready for her presidency and they responded with a 'no.'
'There's this whole conversation that has been coming up about electability focused on our campaign,' Harris told a room full of people during a town hall event in Reno, Nevada.
'Is America ready for that?,' she asked.
Several audience members chimed in, shouting 'no' from their seats.

Harris doubled back and looked sternly towards the dissenters and appeared visibly shocked with their disagreement.
'Well, yes they are,' Harris argued, causing a ripple of laughter through the hall.
The California Senator said earlier in the speech that she wanted to 'not waste your time' and 'engage in real talk' about the 2020 campaign race.
Harris's blooper reminded many on social media of Jeb Bush's blunder before the 2016 election when he asked people to 'please clap' at a campaign stop.
Others said that her use of the term 'real talk' and a different accent were attempts to change her image for different demographics.
Twitter user Ranimal said: 'Is she trying to be like “hip” or “cool” with how she talks?'
'Why does she always sound drunk or high?' added MarilynBojanow1.
Others, however, believe that the presidential candidate is inauthentic and not prepared for campaigning across the country.
'She's never had to campaign outside of her liberal bubble of San Francisco and California and is falling flat on her face,' tweeted Stallion2011.
Harris has dropped in popularity over recent weeks after starting a strong campaign. She received just seven per cent of support among likely Democrat voters, according to a Fox News poll.
Former Vice President Joe Biden leads with 29 per cent, Bernie Sanders clocked in 18 per cent and Elizabeth Warren trailed close behind with 16 per cent.
