‘Harris doesn’t know what to do’: Columnist slams VP’s ‘aimless’ efforts on border, voting rights

The New York Times reported earlier this week that President Joe Biden had tasked Kamala Harris with leading his administration’s fight against GOP-led election reform efforts that remain ongoing in states across the U.S. But while the White House may talk a big game, one columnist is telling readers not to worry too much about what Harris may be up to.

Now that Harris has ascended to the vice presidency, she “doesn’t know what to do with herself,” the Washington Examiner‘s Eddie Scarry charged in a Thursday column attacking the VP for her “aimless” attempts to look “productive,” despite having little to show for it.

“A wide-ranging approach”

As Scarry noted, the Times and other media outlets have sought to portray the White House’s new initiative as one aimed at “protecting voting rights.”

Writing Thursday, Scarry shared an excerpt of the Times‘ report indicating that Harris’ aides have said “she will take a wide-ranging approach to the issue by giving speeches, convening stakeholders, and using the vice-presidential bully pulpit to raise awareness of the importance of the vote.”

But while the Examiner columnist acknowledged that such a move might sound impressive to the casual observer, he predicted that the vice president’s actual function would be far more mundane.

“Translation: Harris will do some talks and media interviews with friendly journalists about why ‘voter rights’ are important to the Biden administration,” he wrote Thursday. “That’s it. That’s the ‘wide-ranging approach.'”

To back up his theory, the columnist cited Harris’ apparent inaction on the ongoing migrant crisis at the U.S.–Mexico border — another issue the president put her at the helm of earlier this year.

“Aimless” attempts fall short

Despite taking the reins of the White House’s diplomatic approach to the crisis, Harris has gone months without actually visiting the border or its reportedly overcrowded migrant detention facilities, even snubbing repeated calls for her to do so.

In one infamous moment, Harris burst out laughing after being asked by a reporter if she had any plans on making an appearance at the U.S.–Mexico border, a move that brought intense criticism from Republicans.

“Harris is aimless, and it shows with every pathetic attempt she makes at looking productive,” Scarry wrote for the Examiner Thursday, comparing Harris to the fictional vice president Selina Meyer on HBO’s Veep.

Scarry alleged that far from being selected for any meaningful contribution that she might make to his administration, Biden’s real reason for choosing Harris as his running mate in 2020 was optics.

“Vice President Kamala Harris had one job: Be the woman of color Joe Biden needed at his side to win the presidency,” Scarry asserted. “That job was completed in November, and now, it’s clear that Harris doesn’t know what to do with herself.”

  9. Dose any one posting have a clue as to what the article is about? When is C.I. going to keep this trash from being posted on their site. What a disgrace. Both CI and Harris the useless.

  10. Joe Biden has been a cheer leader for his whole political career, he has been a follower to anyone who might advance him. His choice of a running mate is no different. They don’t have an original thought between the both of them. So who is the brains behind this bunch?

  11. So right, and I have reason to believe that the American people may be waking up to the fact that the election was stolen for Biden, and that he and Harris are useless, clueless pieces of crap! I hope and pray that the Dems will suffer, big time, in the next mid-term election, if it is not also rigged for them
