VP Harris says being stuck in the DC ‘bubble’ is her biggest failure so far

In what appears to be a desperate ploy at gaining sympathy or an attempt to make an excuse as to why she’s such a low-performing vice president, Kamala Harris did an exclusive interview with CBS News, set to be aired Sunday, and opened up a bit.

According to the Daily Caller, when asked by CBS’s Margaret Brennan what Harris believes is her biggest failure so far as the vice president, Harris said that she believes not getting out of Washington D.C. more has been her downfall, saying she fears being stuck in the D.C. “bubble.”

However, it would be unwise to believe that Harris is taking any smidgen of accountability for her poor and embarrassing performance as vice president, as she mostly laid the blame on “COVID-19 travel protocols,” adding that she and President Joe Biden have been stuck in the White House as a result.

The “bubble”

Attempting to explain away the reasons why she rarely left the White House to face a number of crises America faces, Harris began listing off excuses.

“People have a right to know and believe that their government actually sees and hears them,” Harris said.

She added: “And my biggest concern is I don’t ever want to be in a bubble when it comes to being aware of and in touch with what people need at any given moment in time.”

The few times she actually did travel was marked by poor receptions and a half-hearted attempt at tackling the border crisis, as Harris clearly stayed far away from where the actual crisis is taking place in Texas, and instead, visited a relatively safer El Paso.

It gets worse

Another leaked snippet of the upcoming CBS News interview showed Brennan asking Harris what national security threat keeps her up at night, as the Daily Mail reported.

“Frankly, one of them is our democracy. And that I can talk about because that’s not classified,” Harris replied, making a reference likely to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, which has already been forgotten by most Americans, as there are bigger fish to fry.

Harris also repeated the ridiculous talking point that the “climate crisis” poses one of the greatest threats to American national security, but failed — like any other Democrat — to explain exactly how that’s possible.

Harris’ interview shows that she’s desperate, and was probably urged by her handlers to go on television in an attempt to save face with what remains of her base. Only time will tell if the tactic works, but from what’s been leaked so far, she hasn’t done any favors for her image.
