Big Brawl Breaks Out LIVE On Anderson Cooper When Kamala Comes On

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Vice President Harris was questioned by CNN’s Anderson Cooper over President Biden’s appalling performance in the debate on Thursday night. Cooper cited a report by CNN’s John King, in which the reporter stated that Democratic strategists and lawmakers are considering whether to put pressure on Biden to resign, and inquired as to the vice president’s support for the proposed action.

“Some within your own party are wondering if President Biden should even step aside. What do you say to that?” Cooper enquired. Harris tried to promote President Biden’s performance rather than respond to the question.

“Listen, first of all, 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. Yes, there was a slow start, but it was a strong finish. And what became very clear through the course of the night is that Joe Biden is fighting on behalf of the American people, on substance, on policy, on performance,” she said. “Joe Biden is extraordinarily strong. And that cannot be debated.”

After the debate, a visibly irritated Cooper retaliated by pointing out that some Democrats had voiced worries both openly and privately about President Biden’s qualifications. “On substance and policy and performance tonight, I mean, the president’s performance tonight clearly was disappointing for his supporters. CNN is reporting Democratic lawmakers watching the debate were worried about the president’s performance. One said it was a ‘disaster,’ another called it a ‘train wreck,’ Cooper shot back.

“Listen, people can debate on style points, but ultimately, this election and who is the President of the United States has to be about substance. And the contrast is clear,” Harris retorted, dismissing the idea of President Biden’s resignation once more. The vice president continued to tout her running mate’s accomplishments and made up accusations against Trump that he was in favor of a national abortion ban.

Cooper, not to be outdone, said that Democrats had voiced their concerns. Following that, the two got into a verbal altercation as Harris kept complimenting Biden on his performance and Cooper pressed for details regarding Biden’s capacity for leadership.

“This was a debate that your campaign wanted,” the CNN host said after Harris rattled off a number of what she deemed to be Biden’s accomplishments. You pushed for this debate at this moment. Obviously, I mean, you can’t honestly say, I mean, can you say that you are not concerned at all having watched the President’s performance tonight?” Cooper probed.

“It was a slow start. That’s obvious to everyone. That’s obvious to everyone. I’m not going to debate that point,” Harris replied.
