Fox News host Tucker Carlson tore into Vice President Kamala Harris over her many failures and even speculated on what her next move will be.
“Harris is going back to Europe to see how much worse she can make this disaster,” Carlson said, offering his opinion of her next moves.
Carlson said that the disaster in Ukraine is spinning out of control, claiming it is “shocking to see Europe just lost a huge percentage of its energy supply, which is not a small thing. We’ve been taken by surprise by the whole thing. We’re not the only ones who were, but we’re willing to admit it.”
Carlson blamed Harris, who he said is not a “serious person” or someone who is capable of handling the situation in Ukraine.
“So, why didn’t we see this coming, this total loss of control? Well, because we assumed that if things were dire, serious people would be involved in fixing them, but we looked up and we saw Kamala Harris involved, and that reassured us,” Carlson said.
“Harris had just come back from Europe, where she’d been conducting diplomacy with our allies, and that appeared to be proof this could not really be a big deal. The situation in Ukraine had been legitimately serious. If the future of Europe and the world hung in the balance as now so obviously it does, of course, the Biden administration would not have sent Kamala Harris to fix it because that’s not her job. Kamala Harris’s job is to trot down to the Blue Room periodically to greet delegations of TikTok influencers or to cut occasional PSAs for the Children’s Dental Health Awareness Month, which is in February. So, we assumed she’d be working on that right now,” Carlson said.
“But averting war with Russia? Saving the civilized world? C’mon. That is absolutely not Kamala Harris’s job. That was our assumption, but as noted, we were wrong. Why were we wrong? Well, we spend a lot of time watching Kamala Harris. You probably don’t. Unless you are a junior producer at MSNBC, you’re probably not that familiar with Kamala Harris. We should say, by the way, we didn’t underestimate Vladimir Putin. We overestimated Joe Biden, but we knew that once Kamala Harris was involved, it couldn’t really be that serious and we knew that because this is what she’s like,” he added.
Former GOP Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich offered similar comments about Harris last week, saying her speaking blunders are a reason to pray for President Joe Biden’s health.
Gingrich told Fox News’s Sean Hannity that the VP’s repetitive ”the passage of time” remarks — where she said the phrase at least four times within the span of a minute while speaking in Louisiana — highlight an incoherence on her part.
“First of all, if you want a strong reason to pray for the health of the president of the United States, you are reminded again today that the region is the vice president. Not totally incoherent. He may or may not have cognitive decline problems at his age but at her age, she’s just dumb,” Gingrich said.
“Let’s be clear. Kamala Harris might be the dumbest person ever elected vice president in American history. And that’s why people keep resigning. If you are a national security advisor and you were competent and you worked hard and you knew what you are doing, and you watched her in Poland come up to break up laughing when she’s asked about Ukrainian refugees? You’d have a sense of total humiliation. So I’m not surprised that the particular advisor resigned. Because it’s very clear that Kamala Harris should never, ever, be allowed to leave the country,” he added.
“I think we have never seen a national political figure — not just the vice president, but a national political figure — who is as self-destructive as Kamala Harris. I mean, you watch her day after day, you watch her go to Poland, break up laughing in a press conference with the Polish president when she is asked about the refugees from Ukraine. You see her tenth person leave her staff, who was, by the way, the National security advisor who was with her in Poland, who must have been totally embarrassed and demoralized by watching her break up laughing when talking about the Ukrainian refugees. And you watch other things she’s done,” he continued.
“And I thought that she was an insurance policy to make sure that nobody tried to replace Biden no matter how bad his cognitive problems, but I’m beginning to think that she is like Spiro Agnew, who turned out to be so bad that when he got replaced, he set the stage for Nixon to be replaced,” Gingrich said.
He continued, “And I have a hunch that she is on a very, very short fuse right now because I think most Americans realize that the prospect of her being president is genuinely terrifying. I mean, it’s bad enough to think about Biden being president when he is clearly not totally in touch with reality, but the idea of being replaced by Kamala, I think, is astonishingly frightening.”
