A new clip from an interview Kamala Harris gave CBS is raising concerns among voters as the Democrat vice president struggles to answer a softball question about the economy.
A video of the interview has gone viral on social media as it raises question about how unprepared Harris is.
Briahna Joy Gray, former National Press Secretary for Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) 2020 presidential campaign, blasted Harris on Twitter over her response.

Gray said Harris has been “leaning” on Hillary Clinton for advice which she says “isn’t particularly well-advised.”
Gray said Harris is suffering “a little bit from a soft bigotry of low expectations.”
“Which isn’t to say that she couldn’t be a better candidate,” Gray said.
“I think a lot of people, when she won her Senate race in 2017 really expected her to be the heir apparent if only for these superficial identity-focused reasons.”
“One bit of advice I might offer to Harris is to stop relying on the same council and guidance that Hillary Clinton relied on, including Hillary Clinton herself.
Gray goes on to say if Hillary was not the candidate in 2016 and another woman was, Trump would have lost.
“You can say what you want to say about there being a discriminatory element, a biased element, as there always is in some capacity when you’re dealing with these kinds of first types but I also very much believe that a woman, who wasn’t Hillary Clinton, could have won.”
“And that a vice president who isn’t Kamala Harris, but who is black, Asian, female in some combination could obviously be doing a much better job if she behaved differently,” she said.
.@KamalaHarris might be the dumbest person ever to hold office.
