‘I don’t understand the question’: Kamala Harris stumped by Trump question

Vice President Kamala Harris was stumped during an interview on “Face the Nation” when presented with a question that she apparently had no talking points prepared for.

CBS moderator Margaret Brennan brought up President Joe Biden’s age and the possibility that Harris may end up being president if he is reelected.

“We are seeing Republican candidates hone in on you,” Brennan said, before eventually throwing any pretense of impartiality aside to ask, “Are you taking the threat of a second Trump presidency seriously enough?”

“I don’t understand the question,” the vice president replied.

“You were dismissive of some of the Republican criticism of you and the president. When you look at current polling, the front-runner for the Republican nomination is the former president, the 45th president,” the CBS anchor clarified.

“We will win reelection,” Harris countered.

“Do you feel you will win? Brennan pressed.

“We will win. We will win reelection. There is too much at stake, and the American people know it,” Harris insisted.

Interestingly, Brennan queried Harris about whether she was ready to fill Biden’s shoes

“[E]ven Democrats are worried about the president’s age,” Brennan said. “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?”

“Yes I am, if necessary. But Joe Biden is going to be fine,” the heir apparent said, before rambling on about infrastructure.

“And let me tell you something. I work with Joe Biden every day,” Harris continued. “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.”

Social media users seemed to take issue with Brennan’s question about Trump being a “threat” more than they did with the vice president’s answer… here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from X:
