Each passing month appears to be an entirely new benchmark in the Biden administration as the problems continue to mount. Southern Border crisis, COVID-19, the economy, Afghanistan. It doesn’t matter which way President Joe Biden looks or tries to run – there is always something there. But what is more interesting than Biden juggling a mountain of issues is the question many voters have been asking. Where is Biden’s number two, Vice President Kamala Harris?
Before the debacle that was the withdrawal from Afghanistan, Harris was on a public relations tour in Asia. After her numerous appearances, Harris arrived back safe and sound on August 26th. And as you might have guessed, she was shocked, just like the rest of America, as to what she saw. There were even reports that she was stating that the Afghanistan withdrawal was not on her.
Either way, Harris appeared to pull a trick out of President Biden’s book and simply hide while the rest of the world watches. For the past twelve days, Harris has been missing in action. Other than a brief appearance at a ceremony for the U.S. Ambassador for Mexico on Thursday, Harris has all but ghosted the Biden administration as she tries to save her political future.
Although Harris was away during the horrendous events surrounding Afghanistan, she did take time out of her Asia trip to praise Biden for showing so much compassion and empathy towards the images being released from Afghanistan. While hoping to show unity, her comments led many voters to bash both her and Biden’s leadership.
Since returning back to the states, Harris has made it a crucial point in her daily routine to avoid the press and reporters. Just in the recent weeks, reporters have tried repeatedly to get Harris’s take on Afghanistan and what the future holds for the country. Instead of answering, Harris continues to remain silent.
While somewhat of a recluse, Harris will emerge this week in California to help the ongoing recall election of Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom.
