Vice President Kamala Harris finally stepped into the limelight big time this week and it hasn’t turned out well for her.
That’s because she hasn’t really been battled-tested much throughout her career — by the media, by other politicians, and by foreign political leaders.
She got tested by all three this week and she failed on multiple occasions, as Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed out as he began his Tuesday show.
After Carlson began his monologue, he shifted to a clip of Harris being grilled by NBC News anchor Lester Holt. And she crumbled.
“At some point, you know, we are going to 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,” Harris said in response to Holt when asked if she “had any plans to visit the border.”
“You haven’t been to the border,” Holt responded.
“And I haven’t been to Europe,” Harris clapped back before launching into her infamous cackle. “And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making.”
“Of course, she doesn’t understand the point. No one ever asks her real questions. When was the last time that happened,” Carlson said, noting that even though she offers nothing of substance, “Harris has continued to ascend” nevertheless.
“How did she do that? Purely on the basis of how she looks,” Carlson continued, suggesting her skin color had a lot to do with her career trajetory.
“Meanwhile, because it is so improbable that someone this unimpressive has become so powerful, the people in charge are forced to assure us, almost with hysteria, that she is brilliant and impressive. In order to prepare the rest of us for the inevitable march to the White House, they’ve created a Soviet-level cult of personality around her,” he added.
The host then correctly pointed out that Harris’s media coverage has been so over the top and fawning, illustrated by the Los Angeles Times dedicating an entirely new section to her.
“Not surprisingly, the first dispatch from the LA Times’s new Kamala Harris bureau didn’t focus on her policy accomplishments,” Carlson stated. “That would have been a pretty thin section. Instead, the paper covers the way she looks. ‘Kamala Harris is all kinds of firsts: the first woman, woman of color, Black woman, mixed-race woman and South Asian elected to national office.’”
“So, in other words, what really matters about Kamala Harris, and what should matter to you, according to the LA Times, is her DNA,” Carlson continued. “Disney went further than that. Kamala Harris, the company explained to your kids recently, isn’t actually a political leader. She’s more than that. She’s like a god.”
Next time you see someone walking across the top of your swimming pool, it’s probably Kamala Harris,” Carlson joked. “She became part of a ‘divine’ group of leaders. Divine in the literal sense, like the Dali Lama or Kim Jong Un. She shot an 18 in her last round of golf.”
“Kamala Harris is a star, a major historical figure, indeed she’s god,” Carlson noted further. “And if you say that enough, you tend to believe it. That’s where our media find themselves. They believe it unquestioningly. So, as she headed to Latin America this weekend, they had the highest possible hopes.”
It’s good stuff, and you and watch here:
