It is hard to pick the biggest disappointment or the most overrated person in the Biden administration but Kamala Harris has to be near the top.
The Dems thought Harris was ready for the bright lights because she took a few cheap shots at Bill Barr and Brett Kavanaugh during contentious hearings. Those questions were clearly written for her as when she is forced to go off script she flubs it.
Remember how Pence cleaned ger clock in the debate and it wasn’t even close? Kamala was getting hyped up like a champion boxer by the media who gave Pence no chance. But when the lights turned on it was Kamala who was out of her depth.
Today Vice President Harris was heckled in New York when a man interrupted her speech on the bipartisan infrastructure deal and the Biden administration’s Build Back Better stalled agenda.
Harris was talking about “better health, better jobs and about families” and needed infrastructure when a man yelled out that better infrastructure would have stopped people drowning in the recent Hurricanes.
Harris, always misreading the room, tried to pander and engaged the man saying “you are right, brother, you and I will talk after I give my comments, and I am happy to talk with you.”
The man said instead “Why aren’t we working with the Chinese on their Belt-and-Road initiative?”
Harris, realizing she walked right into that one, that she just lost an exchange with a crazy heckler, tried to repair the damage but failed saying:
“But right now, let’s talk about the agenda that will include speaking to all people and allowing everybody to be heard, because that’s part of what we want in our democracy. Everybody gets a chance to talk and everybody gets a chance to be heard” as security dragged the man out.
Look it is a small thing that does not matter but it is a pattern – if Kamala and Biden and the gang are getting embarrassed by hecklers imagine what is happening with things that matter and with real adversaries like the leaders of China?
Harris traveled to the Northeast Bronx YMCA with HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra and was accompanied by Labor Secretary Martin Walsh and another cabinet officials.
The vice president marveled at the recently opened facility, which boasts multiple pools, fitness studios, youth and family programs and other amenities.
“It’s really beautiful,” she said of the site.
“I’ve worked with the Y for years, and I’m a member of the Y,” the California native added, telling staffers at the center that she “used to swim at the Y a long time ago.”
Outside of the building, about a dozen demonstrators hoped to give Harris a message, holding up a banner that read: “Immigrants are Essential!”
“What do want? Citizenship. When do want it? Now,” they chanted.
