While I am not a fan of The Breakfast Club, the host did not degrade Harris. In fact, she got an endorsement from Charlamange Tha God and he made good on a promise he made a year ago to help her raise money on the show if she decided to get in the race. In the main, she was asked questions about issues that are important to her and her position on those issues. The criticism on this occasion comes from the listening audience who are attempting to rearrange her words to make her appear as an immigrant perpetrating as a Black woman.
