Vice President Kamala Harris displayed an unprecedented level of hostility and inability to respond coherently to difficult questions during an interview with Univision’s Ilia Calderon, snapping “I’m not finished” when asked a question about her plans to visit the U.S.-Mexico border.
“I’ve said I’m going to the border,” Harris said. “And I-” Calderon interjected,”When are you going to the border, Vice President?”
“I’m not finished,” Harris snapped, scowling at the anchor. “I’ve said I’m going to the border. And also if we are going to deal with the problems at the border, we have to deal with the problems that cause people to go to the border, to flee to the border. So my first trip as vice president of the United States was to go – in terms of a foreign trip – to Guatemala, to be on the ground there to address and to be informed of the root causes why are the people of Guatemala leaving.”

Harris recently exploded at NBC’s Lester Holt when asked a similar question:
Vice President Kamala Harris spoke with Lester Holt about the Biden administration’s seeming indifference about millions of illegal immigrants flocking to the United States, only to be either released or held seemingly indefinitely in extremely overcrowded conditions. In response, she laughed repeatedly, and suggested she did not see the importance of her or Biden’s physical presence at the border.
Holt began,, “Do you have any plans to visit the border?” In response, Harris offered a stuttering response, in which she claimed she had, in fact, been to the border. “I’ve, at some point, you know, it, we are going to the border, we’ve been to the border, so this whole thing about the border, we’ve been to the border.”
“You haven’t been to the border,” Holt shot back, provoking laughter from Harris, who seemed confused about being confronted over such an obvious characterization of the truth. “And I haven’t been to Europe,” she said, laughing. “I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.”
