CNN’s Abby Phillip on Kamala Harris’ first foreign trip: “Cringeworthy,” Harris allies are “wondering what is going on?” pic.twitter.com/vkfotrzN0r— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) June 13, 2021
Kamala Harris’ disastrous week once again avoiding the U.S. border, came to a depressing end on Sunday, when her trip to Guatemala and Mexico – the first foreign visit as vice president – was trashed as a deep disappointment by a CNN panel.
Harris, tasked by President Joe Biden with working to stem soaring migration levels, found herself mocked for being unable to answer the obvious question as to when she would visit the U.S.-Mexico border. To her visible irritation, she was asked multiple times when she would go and see for herself – and each time, she stumbled over an answer.
‘It’s just a little cringeworthy, and I know that her allies in the White House and elsewhere are watching it and just kind of wondering what is going on,’ said Abby Phillip, host of CNN’s Inside Politics Sunday show, and a usually slavish ally of all Democrats.
