Veep Harris traveled to Guatemala on Monday and sounded tough. But her administration continues to act exactly the opposite. It’s a classic example of the Potomac two-step, say one thing and do another.

FNC: “Vice President Kamala Harris, as part of her visit to Guatemala, on Monday told potential migrants that they should not travel to the U.S. Mexico border — claiming that they would be turned back if they did. Harris made the remarks at a press conference alongside Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei as she visited the country in her first visit abroad since being appointed by President Biden to lead diplomatic efforts to the region to help solve the massive spike in migration to the border in recent months. While Harris and the administration have emphasized ‘root causes’ in Central America like poverty, climate, and violence as the reason for the spike, Giammattei had also pointed to a change in message to migrants with the new administration.
‘The message changed too: ‘We’re going to reunite families, we’re going to reunite children,’ he told CBS News. ‘The very next day, the coyotes were here organizing groups of children to take them to the United States.’ ” Some change.
Harris said, “I want to emphasize that the goal of our work is to help Guatemalans find hope at home, at the same time I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making the dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border — do not come, do not come…The United States will continue to enforce our laws and secure our border. There are legal methods by which migration can and should occur but we, as one of our priorities, will discourage illegal migration and I believe if you come to our border you will be turned back.” Tough talk for American internal political consumption. Nothing else.
Republicans responded. “After 75 days in charge of the Biden Border Crisis, Kamala Harris still refuses to visit the border.” Republican National Committee Hispanic communications director Jaime Florez said Monday. “Instead of addressing firsthand the human costs of the disastrous Biden administration border policies, Kamala is yet again ignoring the millions of Americans affected…Kamala’s meetings in Mexico and Guatemala are about shifting blame away from the Biden administration, not solving the crisis she and Biden created,” he said.
And speaking of the border…Kamala sat down with ABC’s Lester Holt for a one-on-one interview…I am sure after the fact, she wished she had just stayed home. What a total mess this turned out to be.
The seemingly insecure and shaky-sounding “VP” absolutely bombed in her interview when Lester brought up the border.
Here’s the most embarrassing clip:
“VP Harris: “We’ve been to the border.” Holt: “YOU haven’t been to the border.” VP Harris: “And I haven’t been to Europe.”
*cue the awkward laughter*
VP Harris: “We’ve been to the border.”
Holt: “YOU haven’t been to the border.”

What on earth is this woman talking about?
And why is she always laughing?
RT if you prefer nails on a chalkboard over Kamala’s cackle!

We have a crisis at the US border, not a crisis in Europe, for crying out loud.
Our border is the issue, Kamala, not Europe.
It’s gotten so bad at the border, that now Republicans are taking “cut-outs” of Kamala down there…
Wait… did @LaurenBoebert just post a video where she brought a Kamala Harris cutout down to the Southern Border.
That’s why she is the best! 😂 pic.twitter.com/m2qsS5ZWB3

This sham administration continues to be an absolute embarrassment.
This is the most not-ready-for-prime-time group of political ding-a-lings I’ve ever seen.
