Of all the corporate-controlled media outlets, CNN is the most beholden to the Democrat Party.
They usually refuse to say anything negative about Democrat officials.
Which is why jaws dropped when CNN reported something about Kamala Harris that no one expected.
Most folks agree that Kamala Harris’ recent trip to Guatemala to address the “root causes” of illegal immigration was a huge disaster.
White House officials criticized Harris’ speech, her press conference, and her post-trip interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, which was so bad that even CNN had no choice but to acknowledge that Harris bombed her first big national test.
After Harris’ interview with Lester Holt, the main headline wasn’t even about her trip to Guatemala. It was about Harris’ failed joke during the interview about why she hasn’t visited the southern border.
In fact, during an interview with Don Lemon, political analyst Maeve Reston even admitted that Harris’ trip catapulted the concerns about Harris’ lack of political skills and instincts to the forefront and reminded her this is what forced Harris out of the 2020 Presidential race before one vote was even cast.
“I think that we’ve seen this time and again from Kamala Harris, Don, throughout the campaign in 2020. When she doesn’t like a question that she gets, she often deflects it in a way that can seem defensive. And the point that Lester Holt was making was obvious to anyone else who was watching this interview, which is that the issues at the border are inextricably linked with the portfolio that she’s been given, which is too slow — to stem the flow of migration from Central America,” Reston stated.
Reston went on to talk about how Harris is trying to distance herself from the issue of illegal immigration because she knows it’s a no/win position.
“And so, it was a really perplexing answer that came off as flippant. And I think that’s what people within the White House are reacting to. Because there were…any number of ways that she could have answered this question that came off differently. I mean, she has visited the border as attorney general of California. She visited the border when she was a U.S. senator. And so, she’s reacting in a defensive way. Because the right has been trying to make her into the administration’s border czar, and that’s not the portfolio she was given and it’s not a role that she wants. But we really saw that come through in her answer,” Reston concluded.
