Kamala Harris has not been seen publicly in six days as Afghanistan has fallen to the Taliban.
The Daily Mail reports that Harris has been out of the public eye for almost a week, which includes her not being present on Tuesday when Joe Biden gave an address from the White House about the crisis in Afghanistan.
Now, she’s apparently leaving this week for a trip to Singapore and Vietnam.
The Daily Mail reported:
Kamala Harris typically stands over President Joe Biden’s shoulder when he addresses the nation. But she decided to skip his speech on the chaos surrounding the Afghanistan withdrawal and has not held a public event in six days – despite boasting she was the ‘last person in the room’ when the president decided to pull U.S. troops.
Rather than taking her usual spot behind Biden’s right shoulder as he updated the nation on the situation in Afghanistan and defended his decision to withdraw troops on Monday, the vice president watched the speech ‘from the Green Room’, according to a White House official.
Harris also still plans to depart on Friday for her second foreign trip in office to Singapore and Vietnam, her office confirmed, despite the ongoing chaos and the comparisons between the fall of Saigon in 1975 and the toppling of Kabul by the Taliban over the weekend.
As Afghanistan has collapsed and been taken over by the Taliban, Kamala Harris is reportedly refusing to accept any responsibility.
A source reportedly told Kyle Becker at Becker News that Harris refused to be part of addressing the American people on Sunday after the terrorist group took over Kubal, the capital of Afghanistan.
Becker reports that a source informed him that Harris screamed “They will not pin this sh*t on me!”
Becker notes in his report that One America News Network host Jack Posobiec was provided with a similar account of what happened in the White House.
“Shade War going hot – Kamala refused a request to do a presser today. Said she was focused on Haiti not Afghanistan. Now staffers for the rival teams have been openly fighting all day, per WH official,” Posobiec tweeted.

Joe Biden left the White House late last week to begin a two-week summer vacation in Delaware as multiple crises escalate in the U.S. and across the world.
Biden was forced to return to the White House on Monday to deliver a press conference on the situation in Afghanistan.
After giving his address, Biden headed back to Camp David and it’s unclear what he plans to do.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has slammed Biden for his handling of the withdrawal of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, which have descended into chaos over the weekend as Taliban forces seized much of the country.
McCarthy is now calling for investigations into Biden’s handling of the crisis.
Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said she is drafting Articles of Impeachment against Biden as the debacle on his Afghanistan withdrawal of troops continues.
“I have my team right now working on articles of impeachment,” she said. “Because I’m so disgusted with Joe Biden. You know I’ve already filed one set of articles of impeachment. But his failure as a president is unspeakable.”
She also had praise for Trump, saying, “Trump right now is more presidential and he’s not even in the White House than Joe Biden can ever be or stand up to in the past seven months.”
The representative also used the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban as a reason for Americans to keep their guns.
“I wouldn’t be surprised at all if [the Biden administration] are paying the Taliban,” she said. “After all, they are paying them with weapons, vehicles, Blackhawk helicopters because the Afghan army is handing them over as fast as possible.”
“Anytime any Democrat ever speaks to America about gun control again, and they want to talk to you about your AR-15, you tell them right now how many weapons and how many semi-automatic weapons did you hand over to terrorists in Afghanistan, to the Taliban, ISIS and possible Al-Qaeda before you ever talk to Americans about gun control,” she said.
