It was a really tough week for Kamala Harris.
She contradicted her own party narrative and told Guatemalan migrants, “Do not come!”

There’s a “that’s what she said” joke somewhere in there somewhere. Like maybe referencing how she got started in politics. But I digress.
While I agree that illegal immigration should be discouraged by the leaders of our country, her party considered it a bad look for her to be contradicting the approved immigration narrative of the Biden Administration.
Then there was the spectacularly condescending and immature interview with Lester Holt where she quipped that she hasn’t “been to Europe” and acted like a petulant 9 year old brat.
Cringe. Kamala Harris doesn’t get it.
Holt: “Do you have any plans to visit the border?”
Harris: “We’ve been to the border. We’ve been the border.”
Holt: “YOU haven’t been to the border.”
Harris: “…..and I haven’t been to Europe. I don’t understand the point you’re making.” pic.twitter.com/fFXMf8X0b6

Again, it was a bad look for her to be playing stupid and acting like a bratty pre-teen talking back to their mom.
Then there was the fake Univision reporter gushing over her during a press conference question. “Maria Fernanda from Univision” totally fangirled all over Kamala Harris, saying,
“Thank you, Madame Vice President. For me, it’s an honor because I actually got to vote for the first time as a nationalized(sic) citizen. I voted for you.”
The blatant partisan adoration was obviously a bad look for a journalism and reporting organization. They quickly denounced the reporter and made sure that everyone knew that this woman did not represent their organization.
I’m also curious about how this kind of mix up happens, when legitimate reporters are being denied access and being prevented from asking legitimate questions of the President and Vice President. Yet some how this kind of mix up happens? Hmm.
So in an attempt to save some face after these bad optics, Kamala Harris did an interview with Ilia Calderón of Univision (for real this time). But once again, she made it all worse by acting like a petulant child.
“I’m not finished!”
Another cringeworthy answer from Kamala about whether she will go to the border… pic.twitter.com/7VcPxLnMHr

Yeah, she actually said that. To a Univision reporter. In an interview designed to save face after multiple issues this week.
She held a long and exasperated pause, then pointed her finger at the reporter and said, “I’m not finished!”
This woman is one of the most condescending, diminutive, dismissive, self-righteous, emotionally volatile, easily offended, and overcompensating women I’ve ever had the displeasure of seeing in a position of power and influence.
I’m legitimately embarrassed that she is the first female in the White House. She gives all women in all levels of powerful and influence a bad reputation by proving every damaging stereotype and confirming every fear about how women in power act.
Why couldn’t we have an intelligent, thoughtful, levelheaded, respectful woman pave the way for women in the White House?
Why did it have to be someone so incredibly unlikeable and condescending?
