Vice President Kamala Harris’ first foreign trip – to Guatemala and Mexico – has left White House officials with little to be happy about, a new report suggests.
CNN’s Jeremy Diamond, who accompanied Harris on her recent trip, reported on Wednesday morning that multiple White House “insiders” were left “perplexed” by Harris’ performance overseas.
Diamond added that Harris’ own team has expressed “frustration” over their boss and the vice president’s answer to certain questions have “overshadowed” whatever successes she actually had on her trip.
One of those answers came during an interview with NBC News’ Lester Holt, who confronted Harris about her lack of visits to the US-Mexico border, a frequent point made by conservative critics who have targeted Harris since she was put in charge of the border crisis in March.
Asked why she hadn’t been to the border, Harris retorted by saying she also hadn’t been to Europe, an answer that left many scratching their heads.
The address I watched her give was a hoot had it been a SNL skit.
She is very far from Presidential qualified or electable as such…

Be wary though, she’s failed upwards so far, and she’s a favorite of the Clinton wing.

Scamala not being the brightest bulb in the box, combined with her being so full of shit her eyes are brown, equals predictable unimpressive first foreign trip.
All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

The Dems forgot they were supposed to be the liberal party.
You can bet your bottom dollar everything out if her mouth was carefully scripted. It was designed to appease the GOP and the filthy rich. But Dems are destined to throw away any chance of liberal legislation they have, so they suck up to crazy people. The GOP hates her for who she is and she will never appease them. This only makes the GOP laugh at her and makes the Dem base angry, ensuring future failure.

Most of the world already despises America – at least its government and policies. Most Americans also feel that way. Those in power know this – but do not care -. Harris’s ego is quite massive – but the thing to remember is that she doesn’t have to give a damn.
She is the vice president of the United States of America. Second only to an even bigger ego than her own. They, like the majority of all of congress, are absurdly wealthy compared to most. They, as repeatedly demonstrated in the last couple of decades… answer to no law.
They can break National and International law without consequence. Join, or revoke any treaty they please. They can utterly fail to even attempt to contain a pandemic. They can ignore war crimes and crimes against of humanity.
All of this and more. They don’t really give a damn about Mexico and central America beyond how they can be used for profit. The pretense of any sort of genuine diplomacy is almost entirely pretense – except where it pertains to gaining financial advantage.
Corrupt to the core, wealthy, absurdly egotistical… That is the American politician. Who will hold her accountable? No one. Despite all of this, millions believe that she and Biden are like the second coming of FDR. Heh.
