John Cornyn charges Kamala Harris with flippant response to border crisis

Vice President Kamala Harris’ reaction to a reporter asking her if she planned on visiting the southern U.S. border didn’t make for great optics, as she laughed off the question and essentially went about her day.

According to Fox News, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) didn’t think the question was funny and slammed Harris, along with Presiden Joe Biden, for their seemingly lackluster response to the growing crisis, saying that the situation unfolding at the border is “no laughing matter.”

Harris’ cackling moment immediately went viral as she was absolutely blasted on social media for bizarre reaction to the reporter’s valid question. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) posted a clip of her bad-optics moment on Twitter.

In an interview with the hosts of “Fox & Friends,” Cornyn made clear that not only is the crisis very much not something to laugh at, but he also expressed a genuine hope that Harris and Biden will visit the border soon, even extending a personal invitation to accompany them.

“It is no laughing matter, and I wish the vice president and president would come to the border, I’ll be glad to welcome them there to learn what I’ve learned, talking to the experts, the Border Patrol, Health and Human Services, as well as the local officials and stakeholders who are bearing the burden of this open border policy of this administration,” the Texas senator said.

Cornyn went on to explain that he, along with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will soon be taking a group of 13 Senate colleagues on a trip to the border to gain first-hand knowledge of just how bad conditions are becoming.

He added that in his observations as a Texas congressman and conversations with members of U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents, it’s clear at this point that the influx is so intense that it’s virtually impossible to build enough facilities to house all of illegal immigrants pouring across the border on a daily basis.

Any logical person knows that Harris and Biden taking a trip to the border won’t have an immediate effect on the situation or do anything to fix it, but it would at least send a message to the American people that the current administration is genuinely concerned about what’s happening. It seems like an easy, quick fix to tamp down some of the brewing controversy surrounding the issue.

  1. Biden & Harris are making America & all Americans look like FOOLS that are Idiots & Heartless. OUR POTUS Donald J. Trump had succeeded in getting the crisis at the border resolved using our American Laws that Control legal access into America. The two morons now in DC have no clue of what they should being doing, not just about the Borders but about every last detail of each one of OUR & OUR FAMILIES LIVES. It appears to me that the Clowns have escaped the circus & the asylum & now they have all ended up in Washington DC with the POWER to DESTORY at their fingertips. I think we are all in a crisis that we don’t understand the full impact of.

    1. Just my humble opinion, Sue !!!
      These morons know exactly what they’re doing :
      It’s called “ fundamentally transforming America”(we must remember Hussein O promised that in 2008) and he’s keeping his promise now !!
      This is nothing but Hussein O third term !!!!
      Besides, let’s not also forget the “ big reset “ !!
      Same thing, same agenda : destroying America and remake it into a new Cuba, Venezuela etc

    1. Sadly, Virginia, very soon she will become the POTUS … Quality or not … they don’t give a
      damn !!!!

  2. She needs to be on her knees before she can get anything right That one thing won’t help this country

  3. We neeed to do something in 2022, rally & get those criminals out of office. I am willing to bet that the Dem’s slide thru & nothing changes

    1. Yeh, sure, Edwin, that’s exactly what we should be doing !!!!
      Question is, would it be anything left out of our country by then ???
      We are just at the point of turning into a single party system , no joke !!
      So, how could we even try to change anything???

    1. Dear Anonymous,

      So sorry that you had to tuck your little attitude under your arm and exit the room. So sad that when we reach out to people like you….they recoil back into a shell of self-righteousness. Open your eyes and see what the doctrine of liberalism and communism is doing to our nation.

  4. harris should not be in charge of anything ! she was a pos in law ! and she claims to be any race, when needed !

  5. Harris couldn’t even get support from democrats when she decided to run for president, her attitude about the border shows her distain for the mess that this administration has made she should be ashamed of her self for a crappy answer

  6. And people wonder why Putin pulls their diplomats out of the U.S., and why China patted our State Dept. on the head in Alaska, and told us to “scoot along”.
    Biden and his leader, Harris, are about as useless as polar bear in the Sonora Desert. They were illegally placed in position by others much more powerful than we imagined.

  7. Agree with all posts! Harris is too ignorant to care about anything! Biden is an arrogant, doddering old fool who “ thinks” he is a bad arse! Both have not matured beyond puberty! THIS is what is in charge of our country? Give a monkey a banana and it could do a better job! Impeach all of them, get them out NOW while we still have a country!

    1. The sooner we get both of them out of office the better our country will be. I hope everyone who voted for them realizes they made a huge mistake. I hope those that didn’t believe voter FRAUD happened. What do you feel now?

    2. Right On! Recall elections? Not sure we can impeach as long as Pelosi is there. Lets get rid of Schiff and Nadler, too.
