During Monday night’s CNN town hall, Senator Kamala Harris showed voters she has what it takes to run from questions she doesn’t want to answer.
When the political wizard found herself in the weeds about whether or not convicted felons should have the right to vote, Harris boldly told host Don Lemon, “I think we should have that conversation.”
Lemon needed to steady himself on a nearby chair as he was clearly taken aback with the senator’s brilliant response.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Lemon said backstage dabbing his forehead with a rag. “There we were having a conversation about felons’ voting rights and she told me we should have that conversation some time. I just hope I’m lucky enough to be there when she has that conversation,” said Lemon.
In the rapid-fire portion of the town hall, Harris was on a roll yelling, “I think we should have that conversation!” over and over while she galloped circles around Anderson Cooper firing off finger guns. Political experts haven’t been this impressed since a young Barack Obama was pressed on what form of energy he prefers the U.S. to use. “All of the above,” he always said, stunning the media with his candor.
