Vice President Kamala Harris’ performance at the joint press conferences in Poland and Romania has “embarrassed” Democratic strategist Doug Schoen.
The strategist made his comments during an interview early Sunday, according to The Daily Caller.
“I was embarrassed. This is not a Democrat and Republican issue, this is an issue of transcended foreign policy needs and concerns of the United States,” Schoen said.
“She came up not only short but the laughter, the failure to unequivocally say ‘we will do anything we can for the Ukrainian people to provide as much support as possible’ sadly means that I have to agree with Monica. I wish I could disagree, but as a Democrat and an American first, I think this was tragic and very, very, very sad.”
Schoen wasn’t the only official that wasn’t pleased with the VP’s actions and Former Assistant Secretary to the Treasury Monica Crowley said Harris’ behavior was “astonishing.”
Crowley said that Harris was in a “state of a perpetual breakdown,” and that the vice president’s involvement in diplomatic matters is “catastrophic for our nation and our allies.”
Even international figures are weighing in and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s former spokeswoman Iuliia Mendel said, “it would be a tragedy” if Harris were ever to take the highest office in the land and become the president.
“Harris laughed at a question regarding how the U.S. plans to aid the influx of Ukrainian refugees entering neighboring countries at the Polish press conference Thursday,” The Daily Caller reported. “She then responded, ‘a friend in need is a friend indeed’ before bursting into laughter again.
