Charlamagne tha God: White House has 'handcuffed' Harris

Radio host Charlamagne tha God thinks the Biden administration has “handcuffed” Vice President Harris.

Charlamagne, who recently called former President Trump a “threat to democracy,” joined Brian Kilmeade for an interview on “Fox & Friends,” where they got into a back-and-forth conversation about Harris’s role in the administration and in the media.

“The Breakfast Club” host said he thinks Harris should make appearances on Fox News so people can’t misconstrue her words, but also believes she’s been held back.

“I’ve said it a million times. Vice President Kamala Harris should be coming on Fox. Like, they’re afraid of Fox, right? My whole thing is, go to Fox, have conversations with the personalities on Fox and talk to the Fox audience,” he said in comments highlighted by Mediaite. “Very hard to misconstrue what somebody is saying when you’re actually watching them say it.”

Kilmeade questioned Charlamagne on knowing Harris before she was Biden’s running mate. Kilmeade said the radio host had “great hope” for Harris and was “one of the reasons you supported the Biden-Harris ticket” in 2020.

“She was the reason,” Charlamagne confirmed.

“And what happened?” Kilmeade questioned.

“I think that, you know, she’s handcuffed a lot by this administration,” Charlamagne said.

“Why do you think that? Why do you think she’s handcuffed?” the Fox host asked.

“Because I know her, and I know what she stands for. And I know the things that she wants to do that she may not necessarily be in a position to do because she doesn’t want to overstep the president,” Charlamagne responded.

Kilmeade asked if he thought Harris would make a good president.

“She wouldn’t be any different than any other Democrat. That’s why when I hear people say things like ‘We should be terrified of a Kamala Harris presidency, we should be scared of a Kamala Harris presidency.’ Why?” Charlamange said.

“You know why,” he continued. “Because she’s a woman of color.”

Charlamange argued that the Republican Party didn’t do enough to boost former GOP primary candidate Nikki Haley, and that the former South Carolina governor didn’t attack former President Trump hard enough to secure the nomination.

People on both sides so badly want a new option that she may have been able to earn votes from both Democrats and Republicans looking for something new, he argued.
