Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has fired back at Kamala Harris, blasting the Democrat vice president as an “absolute disaster.”
Stefanik was responding after Harris tried to blame her own failings as vice president on sexism and racism, telling advisers she would be treated better if she was a white male.
“There is nothing sexist or racist stating the fact that Kamala Harris has been an absolute disaster on every policy issue in her portfolio – especially the border crisis,” Stefanik said.
“There is nothing sexist or racist about the fact that if you put Kamala Harris on the congressional ballot in any district across America, she would lose because she can’t conduct a basic interview without embarrassing herself and Joe Biden.”
Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn. said:
“Conservative women trailblazers have been mocked and maligned by the liberal press for years. You learn to deal with it and not make excuses.
“When Vice President Kamala Harris took office, she knew she was charting a new path and would have to prove herself at every step along the way.
“She could have used her platform to protect the women and girls in Afghanistan, secure the southern border, or reduce crime in our cities. Instead, she tossed aside the historic opportunity she had been given to criticize the tough media environment conservative women have been successfully navigating for decades.”
Felecia Killings, founder and CEO of FeleciaKillings.org and the Conscious Conservative Movement, said:
“Many women have taken these challenges and converted these obstacles into stepping stones towards greatness. In other words, our results speak for themselves.
Vice President Harris, like any other politician, has something to prove to the American people. She is not exempt from any scrutiny. Her work must align with the bill of goods she sold to her voters.
“Citizens have every right to hold her accountable.
“If she’s not doing her job, it has nothing to do with her race or gender. It has everything to do with her ineptitude.”
From Fox News:
A recent report by The New York Times suggested Harris, who is the first Black, South Asian or female vice president, has been privately complaining to her allies that the media’s coverage of her would be better if she were any of her 48 White, male predecessors.
“Ms. Harris has privately told her allies that the news coverage of her would be different if she were any of her 48 predecessors, all of whom were white and male,” the report read.
Heartbreaking news out of the Bronx today.
I am praying for the families affected and for swift recoveries for all who were injured.
