Kamala Harris Throws the CBP Under the Bus Because It's All About Distraction

As I previously reported, Kamala Harris appeared on “The View” earlier today.

Perhaps I should say, she appeared remotely from a room in the same building after it was announced that just before her interview on the show, that two of the hosts had tested positive for COVID — Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro. The two hosts were then pulled off the show, live, on the air.

The show took questions from the audience for several minutes while they set up an alternative feed to interview Harris so as not to have her near any of the hosts.

But when they did interview her, they continued to push the false story of the CBP treatment of the Haitian illegal aliens at the border in Del Rio, Texas.

Sara Haines asks her about the Border Patrol agents “inhumanely corralling Haitians.” The agents were not “inhumanely corralling” people — they were trying to prevent them from entering illegally.

“I was outraged by it, it was horrible, and deeply troubling…[T]here needs to be consequences…Human beings should not be treated that way and it also evoked images of some of the worst moments of our history” where such ‘”behavior” has been used like in times of “slavery,” Harris claimed.

This is insane. There were no whips and no one was whipped by anything. But that hasn’t stopped them from pushing this story. Notice how she’s not mentioning the whips anymore because they know it’s a lie but they’re still pushing it anyway, not defining what is “horrible.”

Comparing this to slavery is further defaming these CBP agents who were already defamed with false allegations. It’s also diminishing the actual ills of slavery when you are comparing agents doing their job at the border with slavery. Harris isn’t the first Democrat to resort to this shameful claim — Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) made the same claim yesterday. They’re both just going beyond the pale with that comparison.

Kamala being Kamala, she also couldn’t help cackling during her statement. What exactly is funny about any of this? She actually laughed when she talked about such “behavior” being used against “indigenous people.” I’m not sure what would be funny about that.

What she never asks is if this is so horrible, then how did it happen on her watch? What is she doing going on a television show when this is going on, if this is such a horrible thing? How did she let it happen?

The Biden-Harris Administration is going to completely throw these CBP guys under the bus for this and throw away the key over a completely invented media/Democratic narrative. Meanwhile, no one is talking about their bad border policies anymore and the thousands of people flooding across the border and camping under bridges. Which is the whole point behind why they are going along with all this narrative, because it succeeding in distracting from the greater issue, which is totally their fault and for which they should be held accountable.
