Vice President Kamala Harris made headlines after she once again laughed while being questioned about her border security methods, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
Harris has been questioned multiple times about why she has chosen not to go to the US/Mexico border, despite being named “border czar” by President Joe Biden, but rather continues to laugh when questioned about it, as the video posted by the Free Beacon demonstrated:
The vice president laughed, seemingly uncontrollably in March when she was asked about her plans to visit the border to see the crisis she’s being called on to handle. She had no plans to travel to the border at the time, and three months later, she has still made no announcement about a visit.
Again, more recently, Harris couldn’t seem to contain her mirth when asked by NBC’s Lester Holt on Tuesday about the trip. First she claimed, seemingly falsely, that “we’ve been to the border” in what appeared to be her both contradicting the host and circumventing the question.
“This whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border,” Harris said.
When the host called her on what sounded very much like an out-and-out lie, Harris backed away and seemed to concede by making a joke of the question saying, “I—and I haven’t been to Europe. And I mean, I don’t—I don’t understand the point that you’re making,” Harris said.
The vice president’s answer infuriated conservatives, which was noted by New York Times reporter Katie Rogers said during Tuesday’s press briefing at the White House saying that “Republicans and conservatives are going crazy on Twitter,” about her lie.
While Harris’s decision to attempt to cure the “root causes” of migration might appear to be some sort of new and innovative take on the problem, conservatives are more concerned that she’s avoiding the real problem.
Her condition to questions about her trip have also made the American people wonder if she could be playing voters for fools by taking the position and disdaining their request that she offer the basic courtesy of facing the problem in person.
