California Democratic Senator and presidential contender Kamala Harris slammed Vice President Mike Pence’s stance on women and the LGBTQ community, telling MSNBC on Thursday Pence’s beliefs were indefensible.
Harris was responding to a question about where she stood on a dispute between fellow presidential candidates Joe Biden and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) about whether Pence is a fundamentally decent person. While Harris didn’t pick a side, she made her feelings about the vice president abundantly clear.
“I disagree with most of what the vice president stands for when he makes decisions about our LGBTQ community in a way that doesn’t understand that they should be entitled to full equality and all rights under the law as any other American,” Harris said.
“I disagree with him when he suggests it’s not possible to have meetings with women alone by himself,” she went on. “I think that’s ridiculous. The idea that you would deny a professional woman the opportunity to have a meeting with the vice president of the United States is outrageous. So I have many points of disagreement with the vice president”
