Kamala Harris still hasn’t gotten the hang of interviews. During an interview with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, the Vice President repeatedly failed to make a clear point and answer Guthrie’s questions about potential Russian aggression toward Ukraine and the 2022 midterms.
Guthrie started the interview by asking if President Biden gave “the green light” to Russian President Vladimir Putin to take aggressive action toward Ukraine. Guthrie noted Biden’s suggestion that the potential U.S. response would depend on the severity of Russia’s actions.
Fox News reports:
“The president has been very clear and we as the United States are very clear, if Putin takes aggressive action, we are prepared to levy serious costs, period. And I will tell you that part of the posture that we have taken is grounded in the respect and the value we place in–” Harris said before being interrupted by Guthrie.
“I’m sorry to interrupt … I’m sorry to interrupt. But it is less than clear. Thirty minutes after the news conference, the White House press secretary had to actually clarify the president’s remarks –” Guthrie said before Harris spoke over her, appearing frustrated, and saying, “I’m being clear with you right now. And so if you’re interested, I’ll continue to be clear.”
“I will repeat myself, and I’m vice president of the United States, and the president and I work closely together, and I know his position because he’s been consistent in that regard. If Vladimir Putin and Russia takes aggressive action, it will be met with a cost that will be severe,” Harris said.
Then, Guthrie shifted the topic towards 2022 midterms, specifically President Biden’s rhetoric question the legitimacy of this year’s elections which are expected to favor Republicans.
“[Biden] openly cast doubt on whether the 2022 midterm elections would be legitimate. He said it all depends, which is astonishing to hear a president question whether our elections will be legitimate. We’ve heard it before, but not from this president. Is he really concerned that we may not have fair and free elections?” Guthrie asked.
Instead of directly answering Guthrie’s question VP Harris pivoted to voting rights legislation that was defeated by Republicans on Wednesday. The two continued to go back and forth as Kamala continued to avoid giving a direct answer over Biden’s shocking rhetoric.
