VP Harris gets heated during interview when asked who’s really in charge of America

Charlamagne Tha God, the mega-popular television host of Comedy Central’s Tha God’s Honest Truth, elicited a fiery response from Vice President Kamala Harris during a recent interview after asking one simple and reasonable question regarding the state of the Democratic Party.

According to Fox News, Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris who was really in charge of America, President Joe Biden, or Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), and after one of her aides interjected and pretended like she didn’t hear the question, she became visibly angry with the Black TV host. 

The two ended the interview on good terms, but the situation became quite intense for several minutes as Harris attempted to defend her boss and their administration by rattling off policy ideas for the Black community.

What happened?

Harris momentarily lost her cool when Charlamagne Tha God posed the question about Manchin and Biden.

“I want to know who the real president of this country is — is it Joe Biden, or Joe Manchin?” the host asked, referencing Manchin’s temporary boost in legislative power given his moderate stance and refusal to back Biden’s Build Back Better Act, which continues to cause issues for the Dem Party.

“C’mon, Charlamagne,” she said as the host tried to explain what he meant by the question. “No, no, no, no, it’s Joe Biden.”

And don’t start talking like a Republican, about asking whether or not he’s president. … And it’s Joe Biden, it’s Joe Biden and I’m vice president and my name is Kamala Harris.”

Harris then began spouting what were clearly talking points regarding what the administration plans to do for the Black community, focusing on Black children and babies, and the vice president was still visibly upset throughout the rant.

Sage advice

After Harris finished her rant about what the White House and the Democratic Party intend to do for the Black community, Charlamagne Tha God provided Harris with a bit of advice if she wants to be seen as an effective leader.

He told her that she needs to be the “superhero who saves democracy,” adding that he likes the version of Harris that isn’t afraid to push back, as he claims she did while she was a California senator.

“That Kamala Harris — that’s the one I like,” the host concluded.
