Kamala Harris appeared to become confused when asked by CBS anchor Margaret Brennan if she is “taking the threat of a second Trump presidency seriously enough” during an interview.
A snippet of the interview aired during Sunday’s edition of Face the Nation.
“But even Democrats are worried about the president’s age,” anchor Brennan began.
“The Wall Street Journal had a poll showing two-thirds of Democrats say Joe Biden is too old to run again. Are you prepared to be commander-in-chief?” Brennan asked Harris.
“Yes, I am, if necessary. But Joe Biden is going to be fine.”
“And let me tell you something: I work with Joe Biden daily. Under Joe Biden’s leadership, we have transformed and are in the process of transforming America’s infrastructure with a historic investment in, not only roads and bridges, but high-speed internet; what we are doing around issues like lead pipes, and I could go on and on,” Harris said.
“Are you taking the threat of a second Trump presidency seriously enough?” Brennan asked.
Appearing confused by the question on Trump, Kamala Harris replied, “I don’t understand the question.”
“You were dismissive of some of the Republican criticism of you and the president,” Brennan said.
“When you look at current polling, the front-runner for the Republican nomination is the former president, the 45th president.”
“We will win reelection,” Harris responded.
Brennan attempted to interject, saying, “Do you feel–”
Harris then cut Brennan off, replying, “We will win, we will win reelection. There is too much at stake and the American people know it.”
According to the latest polls, Biden and Trump are currently in a virtue tie.
