Kamala Harris Slammed For Numerous Remarks Made During CNN Interview

Democrat Vice President Kamala Harris faced backlash Monday evening over a host of remarks that she made during a CNN interview that aired on the left-leaning network in which she was asked about a variety of issues ranging from inflation to abortion.

Harris was first stumped by CNN host Dana Bash while discussing the issue of abortion.

“You’re saying now, the President said that this fall Roe is on the ballot,” Bash said. “But what do you say to Democratic voters who argue, ‘wait a minute, we worked really hard to elect a Democratic president and vice president, Democratic led House, a Democratic led Senate? Do it now.'”

“But do what now? What now?” Harris asked. “I mean, we need, we listen, what we did, we extended the Child Tax Credit for the first year.”

“I’m sorry, when I say do it now, act legislatively to make abortion rights legal,” Bash responded.

When asked about eliminating the filibuster to ram through an abortion law, Harris refused to talk about the matter, only saying that Biden has spoken on the issue.

“I think that he has been clear about where we stand on, on this issue of reproductive health and what the President and our administration have within our toolkit to do and so far, that’s what we’ve been pursuing,” Harris said. She also noted that there are not the votes in the Senate to make abortion legal even if the filibuster is eliminated.

Harris was asked about Supreme Court Justices who the Left claims lied about their stances on Roe v. Wade during their confirmation hearings. When asked about what could be done about the situation, Harris did not answer the question and simply stated that she did not vote for them.

Harris was also pressed over the issue of the economy and inflation as Bash noted that “people’s wallets are really being hurt” under the Democrat Biden administration.

“Right now, gas prices, as you well know, they’re still near about $5 a gallon,” Bash said. “The President said he wanted a gas tax holiday, it doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere in Congress.”

“What else is in your toolbox?” Bash asked. “Is there anything else you can do to help bring down the cost of gas?”

“Well, first of all, let’s just say that this is this is a very real issue. And we have to do something about it,” Harris said. “And it’s one of our highest priorities as an administration.”

Harris then tried to blame Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine for the high gas prices.

“But that has, you’ve been fighting for that since day one,” Bash said. “But now, inflation is is really high. Are you concerned about a recession? The administration said that they weren’t that worried about the inflation and then that changed.”

“I think that there can be no higher priority than what we have been clear is our highest priority, which is bringing down the cost and the prices as much as we possibly can and we will stay focused on that,” Harris responded.

Harris was then mocked over a portion of the interview on abortion when she referred to herself as “a woman myself and the daughter of a woman and a granddaughter of a woman.”

Harris also appeared to advocate for young men not having to be responsible for their actions.

“And when we think about it, everyone has something at risk on this,” Harris said. “First of all, if you are a parent of sons, do think about what this means for the life of your son and what that will mean in terms of the choices he will have.”
