Kamala Harris baffled millions of Americans this week when she failed to explain her roles and responsibilities as Vice President of the United States.
“Well, I have the great privilege of serving with Joe Biden, who is the President of the United States… and was vice president,” Harris said.
“Does he understand what it’s like to be vice president?” Colbert then asked.
“He does, he does,” Harris replied. “He really is a true partner and he understands that job. And remember, we came in during the height of the pandemic. And so much of the work was about okay, we’ve got to cover a lot of bases and let’s figure out between us how we can do it. But he’s an extraordinary leader and I wish people could see what I see 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. He really is.”
