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.
What?! Kamala Harris is not serious about addressing the border crisis their policies created.
HARRIS: “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…”pic.twitter.com/koDjvA2SDf
