Nobody appears to love Vice President Kamala Harris, and the women of The View are none too joyful about it. After reviews of Harris’ plummeting approval charges, the present’s hosts did their greatest to persuade their viewers she deserves help. As is usually the case, these tv personalities tried to elucidate the vice chairman’s obvious unlikability by repeating a well-known chorus generally used on the left. But there appears to be extra to this story.
The View Defends Harris
In a current airing of the present, the hosts of The View mentioned Harris’ decline in reputation. Whoopi Goldberg identified how Harris has “the lowest approval of any vice president since the ‘70s,” and requested co-host Joy Behar to elucidate why. The response was reasonably predictable. “Well, let’s see. What is different about her that we haven’t seen before? What could it be? Oh, that’s right. She’s a woman and she’s black. I almost forgot,” she replied.
Behar complained concerning the Biden administration getting slammed by Republicans and even people on the left; the tv persona argued the criticism isn’t deserved because the president has solely been in workplace for eight months. She stated:
“I mean, it seems like there’s this bombardment of criticism on her and Biden coming from the right as if they have been in office for four years. They’ve only been there for what? Six months? [counting on fingers] Eight months. Eight months. What are they supposed to do? Change the whole world? Cure – get a cure for cancer? Solve the problem of climate change, deal with immigration? They have been doing immigration. How many presidential years? Other presidents have tried to fix immigration in this country. It’s a very, very hard and trackable problem. That’s what they handed her. So you know what? Back off.”
Of course, one doesn’t have to make use of Google to find out whether or not Behar had the identical power for former President Donald Trump when he was eight months into his presidency.
Co-host Sunny Hostin additionally chimed in and repeated the “everything is bigotry” trope: “Well, it’s not surprising because it is all about race and gender, right? As Joy mentioned. What’s different about this one? What is different about this particular vice president?” Hostin additionally identified adverse feedback concerning the vice chairman’s refusal to go to the southern border, regardless of being appointed “immigration czar,” and referred to as them examples of “faux outrage.” She appeared to suggest the criticism was not honest as a result of Harris went to the border whereas serving as California’s legal professional common. “They’re claiming there’s a crisis at the border, that she never visited the border. She was the attorney general of California. There are pictures all over the place of Kamala Harris, of the vice president at the border,” she defined. “So that’s sort of much ado about nothing.”
Have They Lost the Plot?
The hosts of The View dutifully employed the Democrats’ regular technique of utilizing false accusations of bigotry to distract from the important thing points. In so doing, they insulted the intelligence of the two.73 million bored housewives and tortured husbands who watch this system. The purpose Americans have soured on Harris has nothing to do along with her gender or race – it has to do along with her efficiency on the job.
What these people don’t want to acknowledge is the truth that the scrutiny Harris has obtained – from each Republicans and Democrats – is warranted. Under this administration, the migrant disaster was steadily worsened, with growing numbers of migrants surging to the border and lots of others making an attempt to enter the nation illegally. The scenario with unaccompanied minors can also be turning into extra of a problem, and Harris’ purported goal of coping with the “root causes” of the disaster exhibits little promise of bearing fruit. The Associated Press lately reported “the number of children traveling alone who were picked up at the Mexican border by U.S. immigration authorities likely hit an all-time high in July, and the number of people who came in families likely reached its second-highest total on record.”
The backside line is that the scenario on the border has grow to be so extreme even the activist media can not spin it arduous sufficient to steer the general public to chop Harris some slack. The notion Americans can not clearly see the vice chairman is failing at her job, and are basing their not-so-positive views about her on her race and gender, is insulting and in the end inaccurate. But what else would one count on from a present like The View?
