The White House is pushing back against questions from reporters wondering why Vice President Kamala Harris has not visited the border.
It’s a valid question considering that President Joe Biden put Harris in charge of the border crisis.
New York Post reporter Steven Nelson pointed out during the White House press briefing that instead of going to the border, the vice president visited a Chicago bakery.
“Is she still working on this and can you address the perception that she’s kind of quietly backing off while Secretary Mayorkas is pursuing some Trump-era policies?” Nelson asked.
“And so, while she was there, like many Americans, she got a snack. I think she’s allowed to do that,” Psaki said.
But she’s not like many Americans. She’s vice president of the United States. Instead of dealing with a national security crisis Vice President Harris is eating cake.
