Cackling Kamala Harris gave a rare one-on-one interview with CNN’s Dana Bash the Monday following the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.
The interview aired on “The Lead with Jake Tapper” where Harris widely criticized and condemned the Supreme Court decision.
“The court actually took a constitutional right that has been recognized for half a century and took it from the women of America. That’s shocking. When you think about it, in terms of what that means, in terms of democratic principles, in terms about the ideals upon which we were founded on, about liberty, about freedom,” Harris said.
She told Bash that she thought about this decision “as a parent” as well as a woman.
“You know, I thought about it as a parent. We have two children who are in their 20s, a son and a daughter. I thought about it as a godparent of teenagers. I thought of it as an aunt of pre-school children,” Harris said.
“And a woman yourself,” Bash replied.
“And a woman myself, and the daughter of a woman, and a granddaughter of a woman,” Harris remarked.
Harris’s comment was wildly criticized on social media as it appeared that suddenly Kamala Harris remembered what a woman was in contrast to radical remarks made just weeks prior.
“I’m pretty sure she’s not a biologist,” Media Research Center associate editor Nick Fondacaro tweeted, referring to the past comment by Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown-Jackson.
Independent Women’s Network Director Julie Gunlok joked, “Oh…so NOW everyone knows what a woman is. Got it.”

Harris then tried to suggest that even men have something at risk with the recent Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision.
“When we think about it, everyone has something at risk on this. First of all, if you are a parent of sons, do think about what this means for the life of your son and what that will mean in terms of the choices he will have,” Harris said.
Alexandra DeSanctis from National Review was quick to hit back at the Vice President’s comment, “You mean like they might have to take responsibility as fathers instead of paying for an abortion or coercing the mother of their child to get one?”
