The panel on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” with Nicolle Wallace on Friday praised Sen. Kamala Harris for her “sterling debate performance.”
The panel noted how Harris went after former Vice President Joe Biden on the issue of bussing and segregation.
“Joe Biden said that he was supporting the local school boards doing the decisions, not the federal government, which is tantamount to saying I support state’s rights,” the Rev. Al Sharpton explained. “He said that. That’s not Kamala Harris confusing what he said. And if you need a day to explain that you are not with state’s rights, you only made the situation worse.”
“I’m talking about what he said out of his mouth, which was stunning to me,” he continued.
“I want to give her some more credit, which is when I was watching last night, I thought to myself of that line from ‘The Wire,’ that famous line people use a lot. When you come from the king, you bet not miss, and she didn’t miss. She went for Biden and she went in and the way that she did it was so masterful, was so surgical,” explained MoveOn’s Karine Jean-Pierre.
Jean-Pierre praised the Harris campaign for driving the point home by tweeting out a photo after the debate.

MSNBC national affairs analyst John Heilemann said, “she scored every time she spoke.”
“There was not a moment she missed. Every time she opened her mouth, she scored a direct hit on whatever she was trying to hit. She was at various time humorous, funny, emotional. It was a sterling debate performance.
“I would add to that, that every time she’s opened her mouth when a camera’s been on her since she first mused about running that’s been the case,” Wallace said. “So the performance was not an outlier, it was an extension of every moment we’ve seen from her.”

‘Babbling and incoherent’: Internet stunned by Kudlow’s trainwreck appearance on CNN

Joe Biden says he won’t stand in the way of a possible prosecution of Trump
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told NPR on Thursday that while he was unsure if it was "good for democracy," if elected he would not stand in the way of a hypothetical Justice Department prosecution of President Donald Trump for crimes committed in office.
"Look, the Justice Department is not the president's private law firm," the former vice president said. "The attorney general is not the president's private lawyer. I will not interfere with the Justice Department's judgment of whether or not they think they should pursue the prosecution of anyone that they think has violated the law."
