It should never be acceptable when it is a blatantly false statement.  The person promising these things isn't going to pay for it themselves.  The American taxpayer is going to have to foot the bill, the money has to come from somewhere.

You should have heard the deafening cheers from 2500 students at UNC last week when Bernie said "we are going to cancel all student debt"

 

Two points.

 

1) he didnt mean cancel... he meant transfer your debt to someone else.  "Students" either love that idea or are too dumb to know the difference. 

 

2) Time for a poll test... any person who cheers for such a scheme should have their vote taken.  IQ not high enough to entrust something important to , like voting.

Kamala Harris got a nice career boost from quid pro quo

 

It's illegal if she would have done the same on the street.

But isn't what ol Cameltoela did legal in Los Vegas?

quid pro quo is the definition of election politicking. Elect me & I'll [do something for you]...

But making blatantly false statements that are impossible  to do should be called out on. Like Trump claiming he would make Mexico pay for the wall, anyone can claim whatever they want . It is the "How" it gets done that needs to be looked into.

In the past, people for the most part were savvy enough to know when they were just being fed BS and could vote accordingly.  Unfortunately we now have basically two full generations of people who were poorly educated and indoctrinated to believe in the Socialist/Communist model of governing.   The politicians are doing their best to exploit this to the fullest.
