Sen. Kamala Harris on Monday explained why she married a white man while defending her black heritage during a radio interview.

“Look, I love my husband, and he happened to be the one that I chose to marry, because I love him — and that was that moment in time, and that’s it,” Harris told the “Breakfast Club” hosts when asked about criticism she received on social media for marrying a white man. “And he loves me.”

The hosts brought up a meme that began circulating after she announced she was running for president that questions her status as a black American by referencing her immigrant parents who were born in India and Jamaica and her formative high school years spent in Canada.
