If there’s one thing the Biden administration is really, really good at it’s taking an issue where they’ve royally screwed up and making it even worse when asked to address it.
As we reported earlier, Vice President Kamala Harris did an embarrassing interview with NBC’s Lester Holt on Monday in which she was pressed on if she “had any plans to visit” the southern border. She gave a defensive and flippant response that didn’t remotely address the question.
“At some point…” she started to answer affirmatively before falsely stating multiple times that “we’ve been to the border.” When Holt corrected her, Harris made what she apparently thought was a cute joke by proclaiming that she also had not been to Europe, and then saying that she didn’t understand his point.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was one of numerous Republican members of Congress who roasted Harris for her remarks, and during today’s White House press briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki was asked by NY Times reporter Katie Rogers if the conservatives who were “going crazy” over what Harris said had a point about pressing her to visit the border to get a full grasp of what was happening.
After giving yet another canned answer about how Harris’ original “assignment” from President Biden was to “address the root causes” of migration and to address humanitarian issues with leaders in the region, Psaki told Rogers that “I will say we’re not taking advice from former President Trump or most of the Republicans who are criticizing us on this, even they were all sitting there while we created this problem we walked into both at the border and with the movement of migration that has been growing over the last year.”
Pathetic: NYT’s Katie Rogers and Jen Psaki tag-team to mock “Republicans and conservatives are going crazy” and “getting worked up” over Vice President Harris’s interview with NBC’s Lester Holt.

“We” created this problem? I sure as hell don’t
