Vice President Kamala Harris snapped at TV host Charlamagne Tha God after he asked her who America’s “real” president is. “I want to know who the real president of this country is, is it Joe Biden, or Joe Manchin?” Charlamagne said.
Harris started with a calm answer but she grew angrier with each word as you can see in the video below. Harris said: “Come on, Charlamagne, come on. It’s Joe Biden.” Charlamagne cut her off to say, “I can’t tell sometimes.”
Harris said, “No, no, no, no, no. It’s Joe Biden. It’s Joe Biden, and don’t start talking like a Republican about asking whether or not he’s president. Charlamagne said, “Do you think Joe Manchin is a problem?”
Harris snapped” “It’s Joe Biden. And I’m vice president, and my name is Kamala Harris. The reality is, because we are in office, we do the things like the child tax credit, which is going to reduce black child poverty by 50 percent, on track to do that.
“We do things that are about saying our Department of Justice is going to do these investigations and require that we end chokeholds and are going to have body cameras.
“It is the work of saying that we get lead out of pipes and paint because our babies are suffering because of that.
“It is the work of saying people who ride public transit deserve the same kind of dignity that anybody else does, so let us improve that system.
“It is the work of saying that we have got to bring down prescription drug costs.”
“So I hear the frustration, but let’s not deny the impact that we’ve had. And agree also that there is a whole lot more to be done, and it is not easy to do, but we will not give up.
“ I will not give up.
“I think it’s a mistake to try and think about this only through the lens of Democrats versus Democrats, when the fact is Republicans are consistently and unanimously standing in the way of progress,” Harris said.
Charlamagne added, “That Kamala Harris, that’s the one I like. That’s the one that was putting the pressure on people in Senate hearings.
“That’s the one I’d like to see more often out here in these streets.”
Harris said in a different interview that the Biden administration didn’t see the virus variants coming which seems impossible because every scientist predicted we would see mutations. She said the scientists they relied on missed them leaving one to ask when will Biden start firing people who are incompetent? Who fell asleep and missed these mutations? Why do we still not have adequate testing? Biden and Kamala have been there for a year.
She said, and Biden will surely have words with her for revealing too much:
“We didn’t see Delta coming.
I think most scientists did not, upon whose advice and direction we have relied, didn’t see Delta coming.
“We didn’t see Omicron coming.
“And that’s the nature of what this, this awful virus has been, which as it turns out, has mutations and variants,” she said.
