VP Harris Clashes With Savannah Guthrie When Asked About Biden's 'Illegitimate' Election Comment (VIDEO)

Vice President Kamala Harris clashed with “Today” host Savannah Guthrie on Thursday when asked about President Joe Biden’s comments implying the 2022 midterm elections may be illegitimate.

During his press conference on Wednesday, Biden was asked by a reporter, “speaking of voting rights legislation, if this isn’t passed, do you still believe the upcoming election will be fairly conducted and its results will be legitimate?”

Biden gave a jumbled non-answer to the question, prompting another reporter to follow up.

“A moment ago, you were asked whether or not you believed that we would have free and fair elections in 2022 if some of these state legislatures reformed their voting protocols. You said that it depends. Do you — do you think that they would in any way be illegitimate?” the second reporter asked.

Biden replied, “oh, yeah, I think it easily could be — be illegitimate. Imagine — imagine if, in fact, Trump has succeeded in convincing Pence to not count the votes.”

“In regard to 2022, sir — the midterm elections,” the reporter replied, again trying to get an answer to the question that was asked.

“Oh, 2022. I mean, imagine if those attempts to say that the count was not legit. You have to recount it and we’re not going to count — we’re going to discard the following votes. I mean, sure, but — I’m not going to say it’s going to be legit. It’s — the increase and the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these — these reforms passed,” Biden said.

The following morning, Guthrie asked Harris about the president’s remarks.

“[It is] astonishing to hear a president question whether our elections will be legitimate,” Guthrie said. “We’ve heard it before, but not from this president.”

Guthrie followed up by asking Harris if Biden is truly concerned that we may not have free and fair elections.

Harris, like Biden, avoided the question and began talking about the voting bills that the administration is trying to push. She claimed that voter integrity laws are “purposely making it more difficult for the American people to vote.”

“Let’s not conflate issues. So, what we’re looking at, and the topic of so much debate last night, was that we, as America, cannot afford to allow this blatant erosion of our democracy,” Harris stated, growing clearly irritated with Guthrie attempting to steer her back to the actual question. “That is the topic of the conversation.”

    Why is Kamala talking about the difficulties of a mother of 3 trying to vote? She wants to put mothers who have a hard time getting their kids to school in jail. That’s right, and Hilary Clinton whose hero is Margaret Sanger had a fake presidential speech about the family with 3 kids too. The Democrat establishment loves Americans procreating.

    Look at her EYES in these interviews . She is anxious (perhaps alarmed) and depressed. She says “I am VP of the US”. We knew that. It seems to be her that doesn’t feel in control. She knows this outfit will delete her if it is to their advantage. She also has some sense of conscience. On some level, she knows what she has done is wrong and really doesn’t believe what she is saying.. It is hard to tell, because they do feel their OWN pain. Anyway she is out of her league.Unlike what I have observed from FBI director Christopher Wray (slick as a greased serpent). He will not show vulnerability-publicly anyway .He is GOOD at the game.I don’t diagnose. I only observe. These are my perceptions. Once upon a time I did it for a living. Like the Book says “the eyes are the window to the soul”.

    Well, as little as it is, my respect for Savannah increased with this.

    Biden’s comment says the quiet part out loud. “When our opponents do it, the election is illegitimate. When we do it, it’s ok.” That’s what his answer “depends on.”

    You can tell Kamala has been practicing keeping her insane laugh suppressed.

    Nope, reading it doesn’t make it anymore clear than hearing it.

    If 2022 is illegitimate with the same laws as before, does that imply that 2020 was also illegitimate? What about all elections before that?

    Kamala is just the brightest. I wish she was my mom.

    She claimed that voter integrity laws are “purposely making it more difficult for the American people to vote.”

    The question that should be asked is: who are “the American people”?

    She’s not referring to USA Citizens who are legally registered to vote.
