Normally veeps don’t have to engage in repeat efforts to relaunch their brand and their career after they’re already in office. The next election isn’t even imminent and Kamala has suffered catastrophic brand failure (though does it count as a failure if your brand never took off to begin with?) and tried various efforts to reboot. And the only thing they do is showcase her as awkward and out-of-touch.
The only thing you can say about Kamala’s French trip is that it didn’t go as badly as her Latin American expedition.
But at a time when Americans are angry over the domestic economy, Biden going to Glasgow and Kamala to Paris just pours fuel on the flames. This is not a time when Americans want their leaders doing globalist tours.
Kamala not only went to Paris, she decided to be more authentic by pulling her Marie Antoinette act in its homeland.
Vice President Kamala Harris on Friday brushed aside suggestions that Democrats need to change course following last week’s poor election performances, insisting the party has since engaged in “a robust dialogue and discussion” and believes that passing the Biden administration’s agenda will win over voters.
“What they want is that we’re not sitting around talking about politics, that we’re talking about, instead, the policies that are going to impact them and improve their lives,” she said at a news conference during her five-day trip to Paris. “And that’s where we’re putting our attention.”
And we can see that it has her attention because she’s sitting around and talking about politics with the French… in France.
“Prices have gone up. And families and individuals are dealing with the realities that bread costs more, that gas costs more,” she said, adding “that’s about having to stress and stretch limited resources.” While acknowledging inflation’s toll on many families, she declined to promise that the issue would be fixed by Christmas.
This is the first time that Kamala belatedly acknowledged what is the leading issue for most Americans while highlighting just how out-of-touch she is.
“I think that there is no question that I am here as representative of my country,” Harris said. “And my presence here is reflective of the priorities that the United States has as relates to France.”
If only the Biden administration made the American people as great of a priority as it does France.
