First, Vice President Kamala Harris was taking “head of state” calls from world leaders instead of President Joe Biden, now she’s been put in charge of our nation’s first major crisis—all within just the first 90 days of Biden’s term.
It makes you wonder…who’s really president here?
Shouldn’t the president be showing leadership during America’s time of crisis instead of the vice president?
The truthful answer is: yes.
I don’t recall any time in recent history where the vice president handled a crisis instead of the president. To name a few examples, President Trump was at the forefront of the coronavirus pandemic, President Obama’s handled multiple health crises, and President Bush took charge on 9/11 and during Hurricane Katrina.
However, in 2021, we have a president who is clearly experiencing cognitive decline, and may not be mentally capable to quickly and effectively handle any crisis, let alone one where tens of thousands of migrants are actively surging our Southern border.
This is exactly why we as conservatives opposed electing him to be the 46th President of the United States.
Not only does Biden appear to be mentally incapable of carrying out his presidential duties, but he cannot come up with solutions to the problems he created, such as the border crisis.
So, he’s putting his right-hand woman in charge instead.
“I can think of nobody who is better qualified to do this,” Biden said Wednesday after announcing Kamala Harris would be in charge of handling the migrant surge at our Southern border.
Taking it a step further, Biden added, “When she speaks, she speaks for me.”
“Doesn’t have to check with me. She knows what she’s doing and I hope we can move this along,” the president said, giving her full power.
This is the first major issue Harris has been publicly tasked with after months of quietly moving in the shadows of Biden’s presidency.
Newsmax reported the vice president is expected to discuss the “root causes” of the mass migration to the U.S. border with the leaders of Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras, where most of the migrants are emigrating from.
She also intends to support “shared prosperity in the region” to prevent future border surges.
“While we are clear that people should not come to the border now, we also understand that we will enforce the law and that we also — because we can chew gum and walk at the same time,” Harris said on the Biden Administration’s new public commitment to maintain rule of law after months of campaigning for open borders.
Despite Biden and Harris themselves being the ones who sent the message to these impoverished countries that the U.S. border would be free game upon their election, they are now moving to halt the border surge.
As Biden fades into the back, Harris will likely begin taking on more and more presidential tasks bringing her to become the face of the Biden-Harris Administration. We’re only 64 days in and President Harris is already becoming a reality.
