CNN host confronts testy Kamala Harris about half-gorked Biden: ‘Is that what he is like every day?’


Vice President Kamala Harris was confronted by CNN’s Anderson Cooper over President Joe Biden’s disastrous debate performance and grew visibly frustrated when she could not paint a positive picture.

Biden’s embarrassing debate against former President Donald Trump confirmed his supporters’ worst fears as he appeared frailer, spoke with a raspy voice, and gave often rambling responses, many of which he mumbled his way through. But Harris tried to convince Cooper and other viewers that the president did great.

Cooper pointed out to the vice president that even “some within your own party” think the 81-year-old Democrat should step aside and let someone else run against Trump.

“What we saw tonight is the president making a very clear contrast with Donald Trump on all of the issues that matter to the American people,” Harris said. “Yes, there was a slow start, but it was a strong finish.”

Cooper gave her a reality check on how BIden’s own supporters are disappointed as the VP defended her boss as strong on “policy and performance.”

“Democratic lawmakers watching the debate were worried about the performance. One said it was a disaster and another called it a trainwreck. Those are Democrats especially worried that Biden did not punch back on Trump‘s lies,” Cooper said.

“People can debate on style points, but ultimately, this election and who is the president of the United States has to be about substance,” Harris said, trying to turn the focus on bashing former President Donald Trump.

Radio host Bo Snerdley noted that Cooper was interviewing Harris “like she was a Republican.”

“All that may be true, but the President of the United States was not able to make that case to Donald Trump on the stage tonight,” Cooper interjected as Harris went on her anti-Trump rant.

“You debated against then-Vice President Biden four years ago, and he was a very different person on the stage four years ago when you debated him. That‘s certainly true, is it not?” the CNN anchor asked.

“I got the point that you’re making about a one-and-a-half-hour debate tonight,” Harris responded. “I‘m talking about three-and-a-half years of performance in work that has been historic.”

The two spoke over each other as Cooper wondered if the man seen on the date stage was the same Biden the vice president sees every day. She had evidently reached the end of her rope.

“I‘m not going to spend all night with you talking about the last 90 minutes when I‘ve been watching the last three-and-a-half years of performance,” she replied.

“Can you say that you are not concerned at all having watched the president‘s performance tonight?” Cooper asked.

“It was a slow start, I‘m not going to debate that,” Harris conceded. “I‘m talking about the choice in November. I‘m talking about one of the most important elections in our collective lifetime, and do we want to look at what November will bring and go on a course for America that is about a destruction of democracy.”

CNN’s own flash poll showed that 67% of viewers thought Trump had won the debate Thursday while only 33% thought Biden had.
