Kamala Harris appeared this week on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in an attempt to fix her public image, but the interview did not go the way she planned.
Harris made an epic fool of herself when she stumbled over her words as she was either unable or unwilling to define what exactly the Vice President's job description is.
Stephen Colbert asked Harris to explain "what is the actual role on a daily basis" of the vice president, and the exchange got awkward.
Harris Bumbles All Over The Place
Harris avoided answering the question.
What she did instead was praise President Joe Biden. "Well, I have the great privilege of serving with Joe Biden, who is president of the United States," she said loud applause from the studio audience.
"Right! Right! Exactly right. Exactly right," Harris said.
"And was vice president," she added, again, talking about Biden.
Colbert asked, "Does he understand what it’s like to be vice president?"
"He does. He does. And he really is a true partner and he understands the job," Harris answered. "Remember, we came in at the height of the pandemic. And so, so much of the work was about, okay, we’ve got to cover a lot of bases and let’s figure out how between us how we can do it."
"But he’s an extraordinary leader and I wish people could see what I see," Harris added. "Because there’s only one person who sits behind that resolute desk. And the decisions that person has to make are the decisions that nobody else in the country can make and he’s an extraordinary leader."
Colbert didn’t let Harris off the hook: "That’s an excellent answer. And the question was, what is the job of the vice president?"
Colbert added, "And your answer is part of the job, I’m guessing."

Wow, just wow. Our own Vice President can't even explain what she does on a daily basis.
