(CNSNews.com) - President Joe Biden, speaking at a fundraiser in Philadelphia Friday night, had warm words for his "great" vice president, who joined him at the event.
"And thank you for the great Vice President Kamala Harris," Biden said, according to the White House transcript.
"She’s making me look good. (Laughs.) And God love her. She’s more like my buddy and my sister, but I trust her with my life. I trust her completely."
Earlier in the evening, a reporter asked Vice President Harris if she had anything to say about the attack on Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:
"I did talk with Speaker Pelosi this morning," Harris said.
"And, I mean, this was an act of extreme violence. And I think we’re looking at a — at a time in our country where there is so much discourse that is fueled by hate and division. And anyone who professes to be a leader, I think, has to really understand the meaning and the — and the impact of their words and their posture on these things.
"I pray for Paul’s recovery. I know the Pelosis, and it — this is tragic. Somebody literally broke into their home, saying, 'Where’s Nancy?' And — and I — I strongly believe that we all, each one of us, have to speak out against hate, we have to speak out against violence, obviously, and speak to our better selves.
"There is absolutely room, and it is important to have public discourse when there are disagreements about policy. But what we’ve been seeing recently is so base, in terms of the — reducing it down to something that I think is beneath the dignity and the intelligence of the American people."
