Kamala Harris, who is the worst vice president in U.S. history with an approval rating of only 28 percent, has issued a new warning to Americans during an interview on CBS News.
Appearing on “Face the Nation” with host Margaret Brennan, Harris said America would lose its “role model” status if Congress fails to pass voting rights legislation.
Harris claims voting rights are “under assault” by Republicans.
Conservatives believe it’s important for only U.S. citizens to participate in elections. Given unprecedented levels of illegal immigration, Republicans argue that U.S. identification should be required in order to cast votes and ensure election integrity.
Harris, on the other hand, argues, “We have been a role model saying, ‘You can see this and aspire to this and reject autocracies and autocratic leadership.'”
“Right now, we’re about to take ourselves off the map as a role model if we let people destroy one of the most important pillars of a democracy, which is free and fair elections,” she added.
In June, Harris explained, “In the days and weeks ahead, I will engage the American people, and I will work with voting rights organizations, community organizations, and the private sector to help strengthen and uplift efforts on voting rights nationwide.”
“And we will also work with members of Congress to help advance these bills,” Harris said, claiming that voting rights were “under assault.”

Harris added that while most Americans likely don’t see voting rights as an “urgent” matter, the more the administration spotlights it, the more people will realize that some are “suppressing the right of the American people to vote,” she predicted.
The Harris-Brennan interview made several headlines on Sunday. For instance, Harris fired back at Democrats who claimed she’s being “set up to fail.”
“No, I don’t believe I’m being set up to fail,” Harris said.
“I’m the vice president of the United States,” she continued. “Anything that I handle is because it’s a tough issue, and it couldn’t be handled at some other level. And there are a lot of big, tough issues that need to be addressed, and it has actually been part of my lifelong career to deal with tough issues – and this is no different.”
She similarly raised eyebrows when she told Brennan that her biggest failure in office so far is her lack of travel.
“What do you think, as you come to the end of this first year, what do you think your biggest failure has been at this point?” Brennan asked.
“To not get out of D.C. more,” Harris said, laughing.
A bombshell article from CNN interviewed nearly three dozen current and former staffers for Harris which showed there is significant dysfunction within her team.
“Harris is struggling with a rocky relationship with some parts of the White House,” CNN reported about Harris, who once even accused Joe Biden of being racist during the Democratic primary race.
Multiple top aides on Harri’s team have quit, including veteran communications chief Ashley Etienne who previously worked for Obama, Joe Biden, and Nancy Pelosi.

Vice President Kamala Harris wants to be treated like a queen…
First off, Kamala Harris is being blamed for crumbling relations with U.S. Democratic senators like Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, despite the VP being the President of the Senate and decisive vote when the votes are split 50-50.
Before becoming vice president, Harris was a far-left Democratic senator from California, which makes her lack of tact with her fellow senators even more inexplicable and even more unacceptable from a Biden White House point-of-view.
