Transcription via Meet The Press:
Aren’t you worried this will reflect badly on Democrats?
VICE PRESS. KAMALA HARRIS:
I think we need to focus on the fact that within 60 days of this interview, in less than two months, we are looking at a by-election where so much is at stake. Take, for example, the matter of choice. In the Dobbs decision, the United States Supreme Court just passed a constitutional right recognized by the women of America, of the American people. How does that compare to the midterms? Our president has said he will not let the filibuster get in the way. If the Senate votes by majority vote to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act, it will sign that bill. You know what that means in the meantime? We need to hold the Senate and get two more. And then we can legislate the protection of Roe v. Wade. Everything is at stake when you think of the millions of women and people in America who care about them, who understand the importance of protecting a woman’s right to make decisions about her own body –
Chuck Todd tried to split Democrats on the move by running some Democratic campaigns to run ads boosting extremist MAGA candidates in GOP primaries, but instead of playing Todd’s game, Vice President Harris cleverly turned Todd’s question into the issue of choice and what it would mean if Democrats expand their Senate majority.
Vice President Harris was able to talk about the issue that motivates Democratic voters to flock to the polls. At the same time, the only thing the moderator of Meet The Press seemed to be interested in was getting Harris to say something that would divide the Democratic Party.
Americans don’t hold family conversations to talk about the merits of candidate campaign strategy. The corporate media is out of step with the American people.
Vice President Harris knows what’s important, even if Chuck Todd wants to waste interview time on corporate media nonsense.
