Vice President is preparing for an international trip that will include a stop in Vietnam, leading to Hanoi Jane comparisons as President Joe Biden’s Afghanistan failure resembles America’s Vietnam War exit.
“The prospect of Harris visiting Vietnam at this particular moment raised the possibility of the worst photo op for an American in that country since Jane Fonda donned a helmet there in 1972,” Fox News reported.
“When Harris arrives in Vietnam next Tuesday, after a stop in Singapore over the weekend, she will be the most senior Biden administration official to travel to Southeast Asia as the U.S. looks to support its allies in the region as they deal with China’s close proximity,” the report added.
Former Press Secretary Sean Spicer tweeted, “the VEEP writers could not have scripted this better.”
He added, “Kamala Harris plans Vietnam visit – just as Afghanistan draws comparisons to fall of Saigon.”

Despite widespread mockery across social media, Harris has reported no change in her Vietnam travel plans. The trip will also include a stop in Singapore.
Harris continues to apparently struggle with media relations during her spotlight as vice president. Her performance alongside President Joe Biden’s growing gaffes continues to give concerns to many Americans.
