The great disappearing act of Vice President Kamala Harris has been ongoing for nearly a year at this point, and perhaps the world just got a glimpse as to why that is.
You see, Harris fell off of her high liberal perch early in this first term in the White House, after she seemingly refused to visit the border for over 90 days after being named border czar by President Biden. All the while, a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions was unfolding, with the Vice President nowhere to be found.
And then, after Harris finally succumbed to the calls to see the disaster for herself, nothing changed and the VP became quite scarce again.
Her recent trip to Europe to work on this Russia-Ukraine mess didn’t go quite as planned either. First, there’s the fact that Vladimir Putin just sent the Russian military into Ukraine in the last several hours, but there was also Harris’ silly semantical mishap that had many Americans wondering whether or not she is truly cut out for the job.
Vice President Kamala Harris on Sunday said she believes sanctions on Russia would absolutely deter President Vladimir Putin, despite she and President Biden saying that he has already made up his mind on a potential invasion.Trending:
Harris made her remarks to reporters at the Munich Security Conference in Munich, Germany, amid fears of a Russian invasion in Ukraine. The vice president called the sanctions “some of the greatest sanctions, if not the strongest,” that the U.S. has ever issued.
“As I articulated yesterday, it is directed at institutions — in particular, financial institutions — and individuals, and it will exact absolute harm for the Russian economy and their government,” Harris said.
The confusing doublespeak came at a crucial time in the buildup to Russia’s war with Ukraine, and just hours ahead of Putin’s declaration to send forces into the region.
