Kamala Harris recently did an interview with Lester Holt and one moment from their exchange is going viral.
When Holt asked her point blank if she has visited the border yet, which she hasn’t, she flippantly replied that she also hasn’t been to Europe.
It was a stunning moment of political hypocrisy and it makes Kamala look pretty bad, not that she needs help with that.
The Hill reports:
Harris defends not going to border: ‘And I haven’t been to Europe’
Vice President Harris defended her decision to not go to the border during a combative moment in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt on her trip to Guatemala and Mexico.
Holt repeatedly noted that Harris, who is charged in the Biden administration with handling the flow of Central American migrants at the border, hasn’t actually been to the border. Holt twice asked Harris directly if she would visit the border.
The second time, Harris responded with a bit of incredulity.
“At some point, you know, we are going to the border,” Harris told Holt when asked if she plans to visit the border. “We’ve been to the border. So 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,” she replied. “And I mean, I don’t … understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.”
Watch the video:
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." pic.twitter.com/fFXMf8X0b6

When Kamala Harris was asked by fake news Lester Holt why she hasn’t been to the border she laughed it off and said she also hasn’t been to Europe.
What an embarrassment to the country that our Vice President is a FRAUD.

Cringe video. Over awkward laughs, Kamala Harris:
“We’ve been to the border.”
Holt challenges that lie.
Kamala “and I haven’t been to Europe.”
Do we have an illegal migrant crisis on our ‘border’ with Europe? pic.twitter.com/qsBxNbMs8a
