Kamala Harris cannot get out of her own way.
As the crisis in Afghanistan snowballs, Harris made everything worse.
And this picture of Kamala Harris just turned into the biggest embarrassment of her life.
Back in July, Joe Biden guaranteed the withdrawal from Afghanistan would not play out like the fall of Saigon in 1975.
“The Taliban is not the south—the North Vietnamese army. They’re not—they’re not remotely comparable in terms of capability. There’s going to be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of an embassy in the—of the United States from Afghanistan. It is not at all comparable,” Biden stated during a July 8 press conference.
But while it was long past time to end the war in Afghanistan, Joe Biden’s incompetent execution of Donald Trump’s withdrawal plan led to scenes that were magnitudes of order worse than Saigon.
Not only did helicopters evacuate diplomats from the U.S. embassy in Kabul, but the Biden administration also stranded as many as 40,000 Americans behind Taliban checkpoints after Biden spent months lying about the strength of the Afghan military.

Kamala Harris hid from public view during this fiasco hoping that she could avoid any of the political fallout.
But Harris’ own political incompetence led Harris to step on a rake and cause the administration even more headaches.
Harris probably thought she could not ask for a better time for a foreign trip to escape the press and daily bombardment of negative coverage detailing Biden’s disastrous withdrawal plan.
Instead, Harris dredged up the fall of Saigon comparison by posting a picture of her boarding Air Force 2 boasting about her trip to Vietnam.

The number one role of a Vice President is do no harm.
Harris’ absurd photo about going to Vietnam while her boss oversaw the biggest American military humiliation since Vietnam is not the first time Harris broke that rule.
Back in March, Joe Biden tapped Harris to serve as his administration’s border czar.
Following that announcement, Harris botched trips to Central America and El Paso, Texas where Harris created negative headlines about visiting the border and the administration’s plan to end the illegal immigration crisis.
Operationally, the border disintegrated on Harris’ watch.
In July, the Border Patrol intercepted 212,000 illegal aliens. Thousands of whom brought COVID19 into America.
Harris’ bungled performance at the border led many Democrats to wonder if the party bet on the wrong horse when Biden selected her as his running mate.
This latest PR fiasco will not calm down those fears.
