Where has Vice President Kamala Harris been since she finished her Southeast Asia trip?
Good question. She swore in the U.S. ambassador to Mexico. She also announced the nation’s 99-year lease of an embassy in Hanoi. Big news there.
As she stayed in the shadows, Afghanistan fell to the Taliban. Thirteen U.S. Armed Forces personnel were killed in Kabul. Americans remain trapped under the control of terrorists.
Meanwhile, Harris took a photo with reporters but no questions about Afghanistan. She did make a video advocating for the John Lewis Voting Rights and For the People Act.
Harris and her husband also wished Jews a happy new year or Rosh Hashanah.
The Biden administration experienced its greatest failure, but Harris seems to drift in the quiet background. Isn’t this the bold leader who was supposed to help the nation address immigration and chart a new course of action for women and people of color?
Not sure about all that, but she has certainly done a great job separating herself from Biden in recent days. That may be more intentional than most Americans think. If she still has future presidential run in mind for herself, distancing from Biden’s blunders is probably more helpful than hurtful.
But when it comes to leading the nation, someone needs to step up. If Biden can’t or won’t take questions and lead the charge, she’s supposed to be the next in line. But we keep playing the game, where is Kamala Harris? Check out the video for details on the latest developments.
