CNN's Kirsten Powers Confronts Jason Miller For Calling Kamala Harris 'Hysterical'

Posted June 17, 2017

"I'm absolutely not thinking about that at all", she told CNN senior political commentator David Axelrod.Whether she runs or not, she's already making a difference. The views expressed here are exclusively hers.

"It makes me nervous", he told Harris.

Sen. Kamala Harris at the James Comey hearing. John McCain, R-Ariz., interrupted and chided her to let Sessions answer her questions. And what I think is so offensive is that she is the most even-keeled, stately person that you will meet.

This reaction to Harris is a double standard. She is a big girl, she's smart, she's confident, she's capable. "Nevertheless, she persisted." Anther woman, a Code Pink protester named Desiree Fairooz, was arrested for inadvertently laughing during Sessions' testimony. It's for the good of the nation that she refuses to be silent.

Harris: Sir, I'm just asking you about the DOJ policy you referred to. She doesn't raise her voice or throw around accusations or insults. Powers revisited that moment and pressed Miller on his point.

"We have to remember that sometimes when you're being put down, it's hard for you to take a stand", Williams says. Other senators also got into tense exchanges.

"She was trying to shout down Attorney General Sessions and I thought it was way out of bounds", Miller replied.

BILA: That's fine, but saying - do you know how many headline I read? This old "boys club" strategy is familiar: the blatant disrespect and machismo that singles out women, especially intelligent women of color, who insist on being a part of the conversation. "There was nothing sexist about it and too many people are leaping to inject that word, sexism, into too much commentary", she added. She is an inspiration. With that in mind, is there any possibility that her treatment will be any different?

Someone must hold them accountable - and it might as well be Mrs. Harris. And we talked about the real principle at stake is one that I have some appreciation towards, having spent 15 years in the Department of Justice, 12 as United States attorney, and that principle is that the Constitution provides the head of the executive branch certain privileges. There is, however, one common factor both in those that believe Harris is acting irrationally and those that cut her off - they are men. She is Arianna Huffington and Hillary Clinton.

"I thought so", she responded.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions testifies on June 13, 2017, on Capitol Hill. So I need to be correct as best I can and I'm not able to be rushed this fast. This is when Harris insisted that he answer.

"Chairman", McCain protested to Sen.

But just because things are the same now, does not mean that we should be complacent and accept the status quo.

The possibility that political operatives may have colluded with a foreign government, in any way, must be investigated. "If she protested more often, there were problems". Don't we want that?

HOSTIN: They would never do it, and I know Kamala Harris. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., being interrupted for the second time in a week by her male colleagues - triggered an outpouring of recognition and what has become nearly ritual social media outrage.
