On Friday, Harris Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared on ABC News with host David Muir for their first joint interview.
During the socially distanced discussion, Muir noted many of the insulting remarks Trump has made about Harris as he recalled the president describing her as “nasty, a sort of madwoman, a disaster, the meanest, most horrible, most disrespectful of anybody in the U.S. Senate.”
As Muir went down the list of insults, Biden could be heard sighing as Harris laughed at his reaction.
“How do you define what you hear from the president?” Muir asked Harris.
She dismissed the president’s insults as she insisted that his words are “designed to distract” from the “neglect” and “harm” he has caused the American people.
“I think that there is so much about what comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth that is designed to distract the American people from what he is doing every day that is about neglect, negligence, and harm to the American people,” Harris said.
“And incompetence,” Biden chimed in.
“Absolutely,” Harris agreed.
Biden went on to sharply criticize the president for his insults saying, “No president has ever used those words.”

Since Biden announced Harris as his vice presidential pick, Trump has been hurling insults and attacks her way.
From the verbal insults Muir described to the latest birtherism conspiracy about Harris, that the president did not shut down when asked about, there have been many attacks aimed toward her.
But despite Trump’s attacks, The Washington Post reported that Trump’s re-election campaign may be struggling to find its footing when it comes to discrediting Harris.

Reynolds said, “It’s clear that they don’t have a message on Kamala Harris, much like they haven’t on Joe Biden. They are flailing.”
