In the wake of her not-so-productive trip to Guatemala and Mexico, Vice President Kamala Harris is facing increasing criticism from all sides of the mainstream media.
But it was on Friday that Laura Ingraham, host of The Ingraham Angle, thoroughly slammed the vice president. She reminded her audience that there’s a reason why Harris was drummed out of the 2020 presidential election so early, and even claimed that President Joe Biden’s White House is having a case of “buyer’s remorse” over selecting Harris as his running mate, according to Fox News.
Ingraham’s primary criticism focused on Harris’ bizarre reaction to an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, in which she was asked about her intentions to visit the southern U.S. border, where illegal immigration is surging by the day with no end in sight.
“Kamala Harris has finally run into the buzzsaw that she’s probably been avoiding her entire life. It’s called reality, as in having to answer serious questions about a real, real problem, the border crisis, which Biden foisted on her to address, but instead, it’s just become a mess. … And by the way, Harris is showing signs of cracking,” the Fox News host said.
Ingraham ripped Harris for becoming so easily shaken by a rare, hard-hitting question from the side of the mainstream media that usually protects her.
“If the woman gets prickly when asked a simple, obvious question, how the heck is she going to do when she sits across the table from her, let’s say, her Chinese or Russian counterparts?” Ingraham said.
As Ingraham pointed out, reports have emerged in the past week which suggest that Biden’s White House wasn’t thrilled with Harris’ handling of Holt’s line of questioning about visiting the border.
“Biden’s chosen number two is simply incapable of doing the job at the level it needs to be done. So how will this play out? Badly,” Ingraham said.
Harris might have been touted as the best thing since sliced bread in the lead-up to the 2020 election, but so far, the return on investment for Democratic voters — and Americans in general — is extremely unimpressive.
