The View: Kamala Harris, Female Candidates and "Likability," Malala Yousafzai







- Kamala Harris appeared on The View to promote her second book titled 'The Truths We Hold: An American Journey.' She says she is still thinking about running for president in 2020 but she has to consider the impact it would have on her family (she's running lbr).

- The panel asked if a woman of color could win in 2020 and Harris said that we need to give the American people more credit. She talked about being the first woman District Attorney in San Francisco and the first woman (and first minority) Attorney General in California

- On Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: "She is challenging the status quo, I think that's fantastic."

- On Rashida Tlaib: "My candid response is that she is not the first nor will she be the last elected person to curse in public."




The panel discussed whether women who are ambitious and seeking leadership positions are considered less likable. Meghan said she thinks Michele Bachmann was very likable; she doesn't think it's a sexism issue.




Malala Yousafzai was on yesterday to promote her new book on refugees. It's called 'We Are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World.'
