"IT'S ACTUALLY A SCARY TIME": KAMALA HARRIS makes case on Colbert

Backstage, Senator Kamala Harris smiled and exhaled, appearing both excited and relieved.

Harris had just successfully navigated 12 minutes of being interviewed by Stephen Colbert, an experience that mixes goofy comedy with sudden downdrafts of pointed questioning, all in front of a live audience of 400 and a half-dozen cameras that will beam the conversation to millions more Late Show viewers. She had been bracingly blunt in declaring that Paul Manafort is guilty of conspiring with the Russians to interfere with the 2016 election (“What more do we need to know?”) and had issued a perhaps overly optimistic guarantee about how the government shutdown will end (“It does not end with a wall”).

Harris had managed to work in her somewhat clunky catchphrase (“If it’s worth fighting for, it’s a fight worth having”) and to tease the official announcement of her presidential run (“I might!”). Judging by the raucous cheers of the studio crowd, Harris already had a few believers. But immediately afterward, the senator seemed most proud of having gotten a laugh out of Colbert, a moment that happened after the TV cameras shut down.
