For over 70 days, Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of trying to quell the swelling humanitarian crisis that is developing at our southern border. And, for the duration of that time, the VP hasn’t even gone to the border herself, drawing heavy criticism over her perceived lack of concern.
The right wing media has absolutely torched Harris over this, especially after the veep suggested that she would be working on the “root causes” of immigration…of them, climate change.
Now, just as Harris was finally going to head south herself, a snafu on Air Force Two forced an ironic postponement.
Vice President Kamala Harris’ diplomatic trip to Guatemala and Mexico got off to a bumpy start Sunday after her plane was forced to return to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland about 25 minutes after it had taken off.
Air Force Two landed safely. Spokesperson Symone Sanders told reporters the plane returned because of a “technical issue” and said there were no major safety concerns.
“I’m good, I’m good,” Harris told reporters after getting off the plane. “We all said a little prayer, but we’re good.”
Harris was able to finally arrive in Guatemala, a few hours later than planned, and it expected to remain on the diplomatic mission for two days.
