Whether interrupting her, calling her "hysterical", these moves have only served to raise the California Senator's national profile, leading many to speculate Harris may already be a frontrunner for the Democratic nomination in 2020.

MIKA BREZINSKI:.This morning -- and I can't wait to talk to her about that, and also about the questions she's trying to ask in the middle of being told that she's rude -- but a lot of rude, white older men. Having said that, Kasie Hunt, what is the reaction on Capitol Hill? Are you hearing from Republicans, and what are you hearing behind the scenes?

KASIE HUNT: First, to your point of what you were talking about with Kamala Harris, one thing I think that is happening is she's being elevated, she's having a moment I think as Democrats are searching around for who their next leader is going to be, it has been something that has caught a lot of attention. The fact she's now stepping out, coming on this show. She hadn't done things like that before this kind of started to happen. She's getting her feet under her on the national stage. I think it's honestly going to backfire on Republicans if they keep it up.

Some reactions on twitter caught my eye.
