Vice President Kamala Harris ignited a firestorm online on Tuesday morning after she claimed during an interview with NBC News that the administration has been to the border amid President Joe Biden’s border crisis, which prompted quick pushback from host Lester Holt.
“Do you have any plans to visit the border?” Holt asked.
“At some point, you know, we are going to the border, we’ve been to the border,” Harris claimed. “So this whole, this whole, this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.”
“You haven’t been to the border,” Holt responded.
“And I haven’t been to Europe,” Harris responded.
Below are some of the responses to Harris’ remarks:
Chad Gilmartin: “Looking forward to Vice President Harris’ visit to the U.S.-Europe border!”
Mark Bednar: “‘I haven’t been to Europe.’ – VP Kamala Harris, President Biden’s point person on the border crisis, defending her decision to not go to the southern border.”
Ashley Hinson: “VP Kamala Harris said that ‘we’ve been to the border.’ Spoiler alert: She hasn’t. The VP would rather meet with foreign leaders than with border patrol agents who are dealing with these issues on American soil. I will continue to call out her failure to secure our border.”
Jake Sherman: “>@vp can disagree w the point he’s making. But it’s impossible to believe she doesn’t understand it!”
Stephen Lawson: “Between the gaslighting, condescension, and clueless answer, this is a master class on how to blow an interview.”
Chris Martin: “No wonder Joe Biden tried walking back his decision to put Kamala Harris in charge of the border crisis She’s laughing and comparing it to… Europe?”
Steve Guest: “‘I haven’t been to Europe.’ 500,000 illegal aliens have streamed across the border since Biden and Harris got into office and Kamala still has no good answer about why she hasn’t visited the southern border.”
Matt Whitlock: “I genuinely can’t get over this exchange. HARRIS: We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border. HOLT: You haven’t been to the border… HARRIS: And I haven’t been to Europe. (She wasn’t named ‘Europe Czar,’ she was named ‘border czar’ and this is such absurd messaging)”
Andrew Clark: “Cringe. Kamala Harris doesn’t get it. Holt: ‘Do you have any plans to visit the border?’ Harris: ‘We’ve been to the border. We’ve been the border.’ Holt: ‘YOU haven’t been to the border.’ Harris: ‘…..and I haven’t been to Europe. I don’t understand the point you’re making.’”
