It’s becoming a bit of a mystery how Kamala Harris even passed the bar exam, let alone became Vice President of the United States.
Kamala was recently asked about Biden’s remark — which he subsequently denied ever making — that Russian president Vladimir Putin should not ‘remain in power.’ Try to endure the whole thing. Watch:
“Both yourself and the president were in the region recently,” Reid noted. “And when the president was there he gave a speech in Warsaw that was well received by many,” she claimed.

“But he also said something that I think was received well by some, but kind of surprised others,” Reid went on. “He said that Vladimir Putin, should no longer be the leader of Russia. Do you agree?”
Ready? Here was Kamala Harris’s response.
“Listen, I think that you, you frame the point quite accurately and well, which is America’s policy has been and will continue to be focused on the real issue at hand, which is on the needs of the Ukrainian people, which we will continue support through humanitarian assistance through security assistance, but also ensuring that there’s going to be serious consequences for Vladimir Putin and Russian aggression as it relates to Ukraine, which is why our policy from the beginning has been about ensuring that there are going to be real costs exacted against Russia in the form of severe sanctions, which we know are having a real impact and an immediate impact not to mention the longer term impact, which is about saying there’s going to be consequence and accountability when you commit the kinds of atrocities that he is,” she blurted out.
“And I think the president has been an extraordinary leader, to your point,” Kamala Harris added.
“Joy, I’ve been to Poland. I was in Romania. I’ve been to Europe, I think probably at least three times in the last four months,” she boasted. “I was in Munich, Germany, where I gave a speech at the Munich security conference. I was in France before that speaking with heads of state about this issue among many other issues, but most recently about this issue. And I will tell you in sitting down with prime ministers and presidents, often the first thing they would say to me is ‘thank you to the United States and this administration for bringing us together, for building the coalition, for reinvigorating the relationship between the United States and its NATO allies,’ reinvigorating, reinvigorating the relationship and the importance of the relationship to the EU in terms of an issue like Ukraine, which is ultimately about one of the most important principles that we, we, we are fighting for, which is the importance of sovereignty and territorial integrity’,” she claimed.
According to Kamala Harris, this is what foreign leaders “often” say to her when she is on foreign trips overseas. Quite a mouthful and certainly not anything that would be scripted by the White House press office.
Earlier, Harris gave a painfully simplistic summary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“So, Ukraine is a country in Europe,” she said. “It exists next to another country called Russia. Russia is a bigger country. Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine. So, basically, that’s wrong, and it goes against everything that we stand for.”
Well said, Kamala. The American people are in good hands should Biden suddenly resign or be removed from power.
