Kamala Harris admits Covid defeat; ‘Didn’t see variants coming’

Vice President Kamala Harris admitted in an interview on Friday that the Biden administration has not successfully stopped COVID-19 in the U.S., claiming they did not see the variants coming.

“We didn’t see Delta coming. I think most scientists did not — upon whose advice and direction we have relied — didn’t see Delta coming,” Harris told The Los Angeles Times.

“We didn’t see Omicron coming. And that’s the nature of what this, this awful virus has been, which as it turns out, has mutations and variants,” she added.

Not Been Victorious

Harris mourned the 800,000 Americans who have died from COVID-19 in the interview as well.

“We have not been victorious over it,” Harris added. “I don’t think that in any regard anyone can claim victory when, you know, there are 800,000 people who are dead because of this virus.”

The interview added, “We didn’t see Omicron coming,” the latest variant of concern across the U.S.

Didn’t Age Well

“This tweet didn’t age well considering what @KamalaHarris said on Friday to the @latimes,” Young America’s Foundation President Scott Walker tweeted.

The comments likely won’t help Harris with her approval ratings either. Last month, she hit 28 percent, the lowest ever recorded by a vice president, despite being in office only a year.

The same poll showed President Joe Biden’s approval rating at 38 percent.

The low ratings and pandemic failures may hurt Democrats at the 2022 midterms, as the party faces a red wave that could flip the power in the House and perhaps the Senate.
