Vice President Kamala Harris addressed complaints that she was set up to fail during her first year during an interview Sunday, Fox News reported.
The remarks were shared with Margaret Brennan during a CBS Face the Nation interview reflecting on the vice president’s first year in office.

“I’m the Vice President of the United States,” she said.
Harris added: “Anything that I handle is because it’s a tough issue, and it couldn’t be handled at some other level. And there are a lot of big, tough issues that need to be addressed, and it has actually been part of my lifelong career to deal with tough issues and this is no different.”
Ironically, every “tough” issue with which Harris has been tasked has ultimately resulted in complete failure, especially with regard to the southern U.S. border immigration crisis.
The female factor
Brennan also asked whether Harris faced such a tough first year due to the fact that she’s a Black woman in high office.
“I’ll leave that for others to deal with,” she told Brennan. “I have a job to do, and I’m going to get that job done.”
Those who have opposed Harris, however, include those within her own party whose concerns are focused on her lack of accomplishments, rather than race or gender.
The biggest issue, by far, has been the southern border crisis. Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar has been vocal about Harris’ failure to communicate with him to address the issue impacting his district along the border.
Further proof that VP Harris never had any interest in actually securing the border, even as the supposed “border czar.”

The criticisms will certainly continue in 2022 as conversations shift more toward the 2022 midterm elections, which will likely result in total political disaster for Democratic candidates across the nation.
