WATCH: Joe Biden’s spokeswoman clashes with MSNBC host in contentious interview on his Hyde Amendment reversal

Published

on

On Friday, Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s spokesperson, Symone Sanders, clashed with MSNBC host Chris Jansing.

In a heated interview, Sanders argued that Biden had a stable view on his policy decisions and blamed the press for attempting to dictate their campaign’s policy rollouts.

Jansing noted that Biden “reversed” his stance on the Hyde Amendment, which allows federal funds to pay for abortions. Sanders then rebuffed this claim.

“You know his critics are pouncing. They say he caved to pressure. Did he?” Jansing asked.

“I think what you heard from the vice president last night was the truth. We have to understand that Roe is the law of the land. It’s a constitutional right,” Sanders said.

“That’s not the question. The question was not about Roe vs. Wade where his position is clear. It’s about the Hyde Amendment. Before this reversal,” Jansing asked.

“Folks keep calling this reversal from the vice president. I want to be clear. I was with him all day yesterday … when he arrived at his position on the Hyde Amendment. It’s not a reversal. We’re not in the business of allowing the press to dictate our policy rollout,” Sanders said.

“For weeks, we have been having a thoughtful conversation within our campaign about our impending health care policy. A part of that conversation has to do with the Hyde Amendment. If we’re going to talk about access; we believe health care is a right as the vice president does.”

The president himself loomed large as the dozen Democratic contenders trained their fire on him, calling for his impeachment and assailing a Syria troop pullout that Joe Biden slammed as "shameful."

"The impeachment must go forward," thundered Warren, the progressive senator who is neck and neck with former vice president Biden at the head of the 2020 nomination race -- a stance loudly echoed by her fellow Democrats on stage.

Sen. Kamala Harris shut down MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes during a post-debate interview on Tuesday evening.

Hayes questioned Harris about her call for Twitter to follow their terms of service and kick President Donald Trump off of the platform.

"Do you think he puts people’s lives in danger when he targets them in tweets?" Hayes asked.

"Absolutely," Harris replied.

"Do you think he knows that?" Hayes asked.

"Does it matter?" Harris replied.

"The fact is he did it. The fact is that he is irresponsible, he is erratic," she explained. "He is like a 2-year-old with a machine gun."

Democratic White House hopefuls united in searing condemnation of Donald Trump during their fourth debate Tuesday, saying the president has broken the law, abused his power, and deserves to be impeached.

"The impeachment must go forward," said Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is neck and neck with former vice president Joe Biden at the head of the 2020 nominations race.

"Impeachment is the way that we establish that this man will not be permitted to break the law over and over without consequences," she thundered.
