She’s so terrible at this.

That’s been the predominant theme of Kamala Harris’ career since she burst onto the national stage in 2019 as a leading presidential contender. By the end of the year, after much fanfare and an untold amount of unearned media, Harris has dropped out before the first primary, not even cracking the top contenders in her own home state.

Harris’ failure theater continued this week as she was sent to Guatemala to investigate the “root causes” of the migration crisis. She was quickly corrected on her assumptions by none other than Guatemala’s president, who explained that it is her administration’s policies that have caused the surge.

At this point in her face-plant tour, Harris has clearly lost her patience. This is a woman who used to be lauded and worshiped by the media as an absolute queen among the little people despite the fact that she’s an objectively terrible politician.

That led to this very awkward situation where she snapped at a reporter today.

Why is she so mad? And what exactly is so funny in this line of questioning that she needed to break out that ridiculous cackle she calls a laugh?

There are no surprises here unless Harris truly expected the media to keep kissing her feet forever.

Repeating the same generalization about “going to the border” over and over is not an answer, and at this point, she should be able to tell people exactly when she’s going to the border. Instead, Harris is giving the same answer she was giving five days ago. It takes real skill to be this terrible at politics.

As I wrote in an article on Jill Biden possibly running for president today, Harris is pretty clearly the fall-woman at this point (even if you don’t think
