Sen. Harris’ Face is Priceless when Chris Matthews Likened Executive Privilege to Losing Virginity
“I guess the question is once he’s testified before Mr. Mueller’s special counsel investigation, how can he now say I won’t make the same testimony in public claiming executive privilege. I think it is sort of like virginity, kinda,” Chris Matthews said.
“Once you start talking about a matter in your jurisdiction and then you say, ‘oh, I’m not doing it anymore.’ You can’t do it once you’ve started talking. I understand that’s how executive privilege works. Once you have given it up, you can’t grab it back. How do you see it?”
Sen. Kamala Harris, looking rather awkward, replied: “I’m not going to go with you on that metaphor, Chris.”
