Kamala Harris’ political fortunes continue to sink.
The fall was swift and stunning.
One ally turned on Kamala Harris in this very public way.
The crisis at the southern border continues to bedevil Kamala Harris.
Joe Biden tasked her with overseeing the response to the surge in illegal immigration precisely because Biden’s handlers knew how toxic the issue was so they wanted any failure attached to Kamala Harris’ political resume.
Harris also knows what’s going on.
That’s why Harris and her team tried to change the story to Harris only being in charge of the root causes of migration by taking a “diplomatic” trip to Central America.
But even that turned into a fiasco as negative coverage about Harris refusing to answer questions about when she would visit the southern border dominated the trip.
Democrat strategist Kevin Walling appeared on Kennedy’s Fox Business Channel show and tried to praise Harris for attempting to show that the administration was paying attention to the catastrophe at the border.
However, Walling admitted that any time the media or the Democrats spent focusing on the border played into the Republicans’ hands.
“I was encouraged to see, and we’ve talked about this before, the vice president down in Guatemala, down in Mexico actually saying, ‘don’t come to the United States, don’t come across that border,’” Walling added, “This is good politics for the former president … because this is an issue that animates Republicans.”
Kennedy responded that Harris refusing to travel to the border or hold a press conference on the topic was a “gift” for Republicans.
The Fox News host blasted Harris as a “cackling pantsuit” referring to the bizarre habit Harris displays of bursting out into laughter when she answers questions that make her uncomfortable.
“It is a gift. Every single day she doesn’t go, every day she doesn’t hold a press conference, every day she’s a cackling pantsuit,” Kennedy responded.
Walling responded that Harris created “a talking point now that she doesn’t go down there.”
But Walling tried to deflect with the spin that Harris was “tasked with dealing with the inherent issues of why these migrants are coming.”
That line is falling flat.
Public polling data shows Americans strongly disapprove of Joe Biden’s handling of the border.
And Harris’ claim that she is in charge of solving the root cause of illegal immigration but not actually stopping illegal immigration at the southern border doesn’t make much sense.
The one fact that is not in dispute is the situation at the border spirals out of control every day.
In the month of May, the Border Patrol arrested 180,000 illegal aliens attempting to sneak into the country.
That was the biggest number in 20 years.
It also did not take into account the number of illegal aliens that evaded capture and successfully navigated their way into the interior of the country.
And even Harris’ fellow Democrats understand the administration is taking on water because of this failure.
