Vice President Kamala Harris has made several recent media appearances in an apparent effort to reverse the Biden administration’s sagging approval numbers.
Instead, her answers during an NBC News interview on Thursday left many critics with more concerns about her ability to perform the job.
“Things and tools that are available”
According to The Daily Wire, Harris once again called for passage of a partisan voting reform bill following similar remarks during a speech in Atlanta earlier in the week.

Among the rambling responses that drew derision on social media was her response to anchor Craig Melvin’s query about whether the White House should change its policies.
“It is time for us to do what we have been doing and that time is every day,” Harris said, as The Daily Wire reported. “Every day it is time for us to agree that there are things and tools that are available to us to slow this thing down.”
At another point in the interview, she offered a scathing critique of GOP officials, insisting that no one “should be absolved from the responsibility of preserving and protecting our democracy.”
Biden, Harris face mounting bad news
Harris also drew some backlash for instructing Americans to “do Google” in order to find locations offering COVID-19 tests, which have been hard to find in recent weeks.

For its part, The Daily Wire sarcastically called Harris’ insight “very compelling.”
The interview turned out to be a public relations nightmare for the vice president even as she continues to deal with the fallout associated with the recent exits of several top staffers in her office. The nonsensical phrases and talking points she used in Thursday’s interview contained few direct responses to the concerns being voiced by millions of Americans.
In addition to her own sagging poll numbers, President Joe Biden has also suffered from a prolonged dip in his approval rating over recent months. The current political landscape seems to indicate that a GOP takeover of Congress is likely after November’s midterm elections.
