CNN Sunday anchor Abby Phillip reacted to Vice President Kamala Harris’ infamous interview when she was questioned about her absence at the U.S. southern border despite being appointed by President Biden to manage the growing crisis occurring on the border.
“It’s just a little cringeworthy, and I know that her allies in the White House and elsewhere are watching it and just kind of wondering what is going on,” Phillip said.
Her comment is in reference to Harris’ interview with NBC anchor Lester Holt. Earlier this week, Holt pressed the vice president on the unraveling migrant crisis and pointed out that she has yet to visit the southern border.
“At some point, you know, we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border,” Harris said. “So this whole, this whole, this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.
“You haven’t been to the border,” Holt told her.
“And I haven’t been to Europe,” Harris chuckled. “I don’t understand the point that you’re making.”
The interview was mocked and sparked bipartisan backlash at the administration’s handling of the crisis.
