Vice President Kamala Harris has been relentlessly terrible at everything she’s charged with handling. That continues as President Joe Biden faces the biggest challenge of his presidency yet.
Harris was roundly criticized during her trip to the Munich Security Conference to meet with European leaders as Russian President Vladamir Putin makes moves toward a possible invasion into Ukraine, Fox News reported. Many felt that she publicly demonstrated that she was not up to the task.
During her trip, Harris promised Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy that the administration would impose “severe” economic sanctions against Russia if it decided to invade. However, Harris echoed Biden’s concession that an attack was simply an inevitability that undermines the whole diplomatic effort.
Moreover, Harris’ remarks to the press Sunday were ridiculed for showing a lack of preparedness for the serious situation at hand. She spoke in generalities and some on social media pointed out that she was “perpetually unprepared” for the geopolitical challenge.
“I mean, listen guys, we are talking about the potential for war in Europe,” Harris said to the press shortly before departing for Washington, D.C., according to the Associated Press. “I mean, let’s really take a moment to understand the significance of what we’re talking about,” she said through her face mask.
“It’s been over 70 years, and through those 70 years … there has been peace and security,” she claimed. “We are talking about the real possibility of war in Europe.”

GOP Texas Sen. Ted Cruz chastised the president for delegating this responsibility to her. “How seriously does the Biden admin take our national security? On the brink of a potential war in Europe, they used a security conference as a photo op for Kamala, and then leaked to the press that she was totally unqualified to be there,” he tweeted.
Harris wasn’t up to the challenge for any of the domestic tasks she was given — fixing the border crisis and garnering support for key legislation — but now she’s in charge of stopping Putin in his tracks. This crisis is above her pay grade, and she’s done nothing but confirm that fact every step of the way.
