Harris caused the internet to explode after remarks about the southern border, according to The Daily Wire.
What?! Kamala Harris is not serious about addressing the border crisis their policies created.
HARRIS: "We've been the border."
HOLT: "YOU haven't been to the border."
HARRIS: "… and I haven't been to Europe. I don't understand the point…"pic.twitter.com/koDjvA2SDf

Mark Bednar: “‘I haven’t been to Europe.’ – VP Kamala Harris, President Biden’s point person on the border crisis, defending her decision to not go to the southern border.”

VP Kamala Harris said that “we’ve been to the border.”
Spoiler alert: She hasn’t.
The VP would rather meet with foreign leaders than with border patrol agents who are dealing with these issues on American soil. I will continue to call out her failure to secure our border. pic.twitter.com/Vpadu6jDIE

Between the gaslighting, consdescension, and clueless answer, this is a master class on how to blow an interview. https://t.co/m5x6kOAnxb

No wonder Joe Biden tried walking back his decision to put Kamala Harris in charge of the border crisis
She's laughing and comparing it to… Europe? pic.twitter.com/OLNVIsSNmD

“I haven’t been to Europe.”
500,000 illegal aliens have streamed across the border since Biden and Harris got into office and Kamala still has no good answer about why she hasn’t visited the southern border. https://t.co/XysoajHVev

I genuinely can’t get over this exchange.
HARRIS: We've been to the border. We've been to the border.
HOLT: You haven't been to the border…
HARRIS: And I haven't been to Europe.
(She wasn’t named “Europe Czar,” she was named “border czar” and this is such absurd messaging) https://t.co/lTcVqnYG5G

Cringe. Kamala Harris doesn't get it.
Holt: "Do you have any plans to visit the border?"
Harris: "We've been to the border. We've been the border."
Holt: "YOU haven't been to the border."
Harris: "…..and I haven't been to Europe. I don't understand the point you're making." pic.twitter.com/fFXMf8X0b6

From The Daily Wire:
Vice President Kamala Harris ignited a firestorm online on Tuesday morning after she claimed during an interview with NBC News that the administration has been to the border amid President Joe Biden’s border crisis, which prompted quick pushback from host Lester Holt.
“Do you have any plans to visit the border?” Holt asked.
“At some point, you know, we are going to the border, we’ve been to the border,” Harris claimed. “So this whole, this whole, this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.”
“You haven’t been to the border,” Holt responded.
“And I haven’t been to Europe,” Harris responded.
Below are some of the responses to Harris’ remarks:
Chad Gilmartin: “Looking forward to Vice President Harris’ visit to the U.S.-Europe border!”
LESTER HOLT: Why will it be successful this time if it wasn’t in the past?
KAMALA HARRIS: Well, I think there was success about what happened in the past. And again, when you look at what we’re doing now you’re seeing progress. And so let’s not overlook progress.
HOLT: Let me just quickly put a button. Do you have any plans to visit the border?
HARRIS: At some point, you know, we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border. So this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.
HOLT: You haven’t been to the border.
HARRIS: And I haven’t been to Europe. And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.
HOLT: Well, I mention it because I know Republicans have certainly come at you on this. But Democratic Congressman Cuellar, has a border district, has said to you and president, “Come. You need, you need to see this.
HARRIS: I care about, listen, I care about what’s happening at the border. I’m in Guatemala because my focus is dealing with the root causes of migration. There may be some who think that that is not important, but it is my firm belief that if we care about what’s happening at the border, we better care about the root causes and address them. And so that’s what I’m doing.
