Vice President Kamala Harris during her trip to Mexico on Tuesday took a question from a woman introduced as a “Univision reporter” – before it was revealed that she was not a reporter at all, exposing a vetting hiccup by the VP’s staff.
Harris, who had just met with President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, was taking questions from the press when her chief spokesperson Symone Sanders turned to “Maria Fernanda of Univision.”
“Thank you Madam Vice President. For me, it’s an honor because I was able to vote for the first time as a nationalized citizen and I voted for you,” the fawning woman began.
“My first question is: What would you say to these women, those mothers, and also women of color on both sides of the border — farmers, many of whom I see every day, as a message of hope? But also, what will you do for them in the coming years?” she then asked.
