It’s been 77 days since Kamala Harris was tapped for the role of “border czar,” yet she still hasn’t been within 10 feet of it.
Instead of providing a much needed explanation, she claimed during an NBC News interview that the administration actually has visited the border.
Host Lester Holt caught on quickly and pushed back against the claim.
“Do you have any plans to visit the border?” Holt asked.
“At some point, you know, we are going to the border, we’ve been to the border,” Harris claimed. “So this whole, this whole, this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.”
“You haven’t been to the border,” Holt shot back.
“And I haven’t been to Europe,” Harris responded. “I don’t understand the point that you’re making.”
Leave it to Ms. Harris to compare a trip to Europe with a trip to the U.S. border during an ongoing immigration crisis.
To no surprise, the internet had a field day with this one. Here are some of the responses, per the Daily Wire.
Looking forward to Vice President Harris' visit to the U.S.-Europe border!

VP Kamala Harris said that “we’ve been to the border.”
Spoiler alert: She hasn’t.
The VP would rather meet with foreign leaders than with border patrol agents who are dealing with these issues on American soil. I will continue to call out her failure to secure our border. pic.twitter.com/Vpadu6jDIE

Between the gaslighting, consdescension, and clueless answer, this is a master class on how to blow an interview. https://t.co/m5x6kOAnxb

No wonder Joe Biden tried walking back his decision to put Kamala Harris in charge of the border crisis

“I haven’t been to Europe.”
500,000 illegal aliens have streamed across the border since Biden and Harris got into office and Kamala still has no good answer about why she hasn’t visited the southern border. https://t.co/XysoajHVev
