Vice President Kamala Harris said during an interview over the weekend that Republican criticism of her stems from her opponents being “scared” of her and the “merit of the work” that she has done.

Harris, who according to polling is the worst-rated vice president in modern American history, made the remarks during an interview with Margaret Brennan on CBS News’ “Face The Nation.”

Brennan noted that the criticism has come from Republican presidential candidates warning that Harris would take over the presidency if something happens to President Joe Biden, who would be 86 at the end of a second term.

Brennan highlighted some of the following quotes from Republicans:

  • NIKKI HALEY: “A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for a President Kamala Harris.”
  • CHRIS CHRISTIE: “I want to be clear that I pray every night for Joe Biden’s good health, not only because he’s our president, but because of who our vice president is.”
  • RON DESANTIS: “Harris is his impeachment insurance … people know if she were president – Katy bar the door. As bad as Biden did, it would get worse.”

When asked how she responded to that criticism, Harris said those making the remarks do not “actually have a plan for America.”


“Listen, this is not new. There’s nothing new about that,” she said. “They feel the need to attack because they’re scared that we will win based on the merit of the work that Joe Biden and I, and our administration, has done.”

When Brennan added that even Democrats appear worried about Biden’s age, Harris responded: “Joe Biden is going to be fine.”
