Kamala Harris is known to have avoided visiting the southern border for the entire time she’s served as Vice-President.
Most journalists haven’t bothered to bring this up with her, but one did.
And the results were interesting, to say the least.
Holt began,, “Do you have any plans to visit the border?” In response, Harris offered a stuttering response, in which she claimed she had, in fact, been to the border. “I’ve, at some point, you know, it, we are going to the border, we’ve been to the border, so this whole thing about the border, we’ve been to the border”
“You haven’t been to the border,” Holt shot back, provoking laughter from Harris, who seemed confused about being confronted over such an obvious characterization of the truth. “And I haven’t been to Europe,” she said, laughing. “I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.”National File
She doesn’t seem to have a clue what she’s talking about.
And she also doesn’t seem to think it’s worth bringing up, which is probably because she got caught out and didn’t like it.
Here’s the clip.
Despite Holt telling her that Democrats and Republicans have called on her to visit the border, she simply evaded the point and said she cared about the border.
Holt noted that both Republicans and Democrats have called for Harris and Biden to visit the border to better understand the crisis, “I know Republicans have certainly come at you on this,” said Holt, “but Democratic Congressman Cuellar has a broder district, has said to you and the president, ‘Come, you need to see this.’” In response, Harris briefly shot back, “I care about the border.”National File
If she truly cared, she would have visited the border.
It’s as simple as that.
And this ignorant approach is starting to have consequences.
An 85% Hispanic city on the Texas border recently delivered a shock victory for the Republican Mayoral candidate, Javier Villalobos.
Perhaps all of those people are realizing that Biden and Harris don’t really care about them after all, and just wanted their votes.
The more people that come to understand that, the less support this Administration will have.
And with the mid-terms fast approaching, that’s exactly what we need to happen.
