Kamala Goes Ballistic During Live Interview

A less-friendly-than-usual network interview with Kamala Harris on the one-year anniversary of her inauguration with Joe Biden saw her being asked about the failed voting rights legislation, the 2022 midterm elections, COVID, and weak polling.

Following the blocking of two pieces of voting legislation by Republicans on Wednesday, she stated the administration is concerned about the fairness of the 2022 midterm elections.

A question about whether the midterm elections would be legitimate was asked of Biden during a press conference Wednesday afternoon, and he responded that ‘it all depends,’ likely referencing whether the voting rights package would pass that evening, which it did not.

‘Is [Biden] really concerned that we may not have fair and free elections?’ asked Savannah Guthrie on Today.

‘The president has been consistent on this issue,’ Harris replied. ‘And the issue is that there are two bills – the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the Freedom to Vote Act – that have been the solution that has been offered to address the fact that around our country, states have put in place laws that are purposely making it more difficult for the American people to vote.’

According to her, 55 million Americans will be affected by the law’s failure, both from all political parties and from all socioeconomic backgrounds.

Harris and Guthrie then engaged in a cross-talk match, where the vice president asked to finish her statement before the on-air host could challenge her.

‘The specific question, if you don’t mind – does he think, now that these bills haven’t been passed, that the ’22 midterms won’t be legitimate or fair or free?’ Guthrie pushed.

‘Let’s not conflate issues,’ Harris replied before attempting to retract her implication that there may be concerns over the fairness of the midterm elections.

It was clean-up duty for the White House Press Secretary Thursday morning as she attempted to backtrack what Biden said and what Harris reiterated during her Wednesday morning media blitz.

‘Lets be clear: @potus was not casting doubt on the legitimacy of the 2022 election,’ Psaki posted on Twitter. ‘He was making the opposite point: In 2020, a record number of voters turned out in the face of a pandemic, and election officials made sure they could vote and have those votes counted.’

‘He was explaining that the results would be illegitimate if states do what the former president asked them to do after the 2020 election: toss out ballots and overturn results after the fact. The Big Lie is putting our democracy at risk. We’re fighting to protect it.’

In a separate interview with CBS Mornings on Thursday, Kamala laughed off a question about whether the administration is confident it has the coronavirus crisis under control.

‘Let’s talk about COVID because you all ran on, ‘We are going to get COVID under control, we are going to get this licked.’ As we sit here today, we’re going into year three, still talking about COVID,’ CBS’s Gayle King put out to Harris.

‘So it is not under control. So I’m wondering what is your strategy here? And have you come to the point that we have all got to figure out how to live with COVID?’

Harris answered with, ‘So I’m going to try to unpack the various –’ and then King interrupted her saying: ‘I know there’s a lot.’

Then Harris laughed and said: ‘But, they’re important points.’ Additionally, she acknowledged that there is still more work to be done, but declined to elaborate on what the administration will do about the prevailing pandemic.

You can see how Harris reacted to the questions starting at 5:50 in the video below.

During interviews and remarks, including when discussing COVID and the southern border crisis, Harris has received a lot of criticism for laughing inappropriately.

She faced contentious interactions Thursday that as vice president she has yet to experience with networks usually friendly to Democratic administrations. She had to request more than once that hosts allow her to finish answering her question rather than cutting her off.

The vice president deflected to a list of initiatives that were passed in Year One, including the bipartisan infrastructure law, when specifically asked about voting rights legislation, which was defeated Wednesday evening in the Senate.

‘The president put a lot of blame yesterday on Republicans for failure to get some of these key initiatives passed. But, you know, you have a 50-50 tie in the United States Senate, as you are well aware. Did the administration fail to temper its initiatives to meet political reality?’ Guthrie queried Harris.

‘In other words, should you have been more willing to compromise to try to get all Democrats on board? These initiatives failed because Democrats weren’t united, let alone Republicans. Was that an error as you look back on this year?’

‘Well, when I look back on this year, I think about things like the bipartisan infrastructure law. Administrations, both Democrat and Republican, have tried for years –’ Harris answered before being interrupted again.

‘Well, doesn’t that show Republicans were willing to help if the initiatives were good?’ Guthrie returned.

A flustered and un-prepared for prime time Harris retorted: ‘Please let me finish.’

In the same interview, Harris dodged and refused to answer several questions about whether he thinks the midterms will be fair after the voting rights package failed to pass the Senate.

Harris asked Guthrie at some points during the back-and-forth to let her finish answering questions despite their deflective nature.
