(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Vice President Kamala Harris has once again been set up by the white man in the White House to fail, this time doing so in dangerously cringe-worthy fashion at a time when the world teeters on the edge of catastrophe.
Harris, dispatched overseas by President Joe Biden to help deal with the crisis unfolding in Ukraine, followed her usual pattern of being horribly unprepared and was left to cackle her way through trying to answer a serious question about the horrific refugee crisis Poland is facing.

Poland’s President Andrzej Duda tried his best to save Harris from her own ineptitude.
“Madame, the situation is very complex; this is what I was saying,” Duda responded to the Veep’s creepy chortle.
Upwards of 1.5 million refugees have fled to Poland since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine, with the United Nations estimating that of the at least 2.2 million people to escape the war-ravaged country, more than half are now in Poland, according to the Daily Mail.
Harris laughing off the crisis was roundly roasted for its dangerous optics and its tone-deaf callousness.
“This is a very serious situation requiring action, not a laughing matter,” said Rep. Victoria Spartz, R-Ind., who was born in Nosivka, Ukraine, and immigrated to the United States in 2000.
Others were equally critical.
“How on Earth could Biden send @VP over there on such an important assignment when everyone knew how completely overmatched and unprepared she would be?” tweeted Washington Times columnist Tim Murtaugh.
“She laughs to buy time and pretend to be confident but she’s completely lost. Another embarrassment.”
Turning Point USA’s Benny Johnson lamented, “Only Kamala Harris would find it appropriate to laugh when talking about the topic of Ukrainian Refugees.”
Discussing refugees is no laughing matter. Why she laughs at this is deranged.

Harris proved equally calamitous when dodging questions about why a deal fell through for sending fighter jets to Kyiv, stumbling out of the geographical gate and jabbering inanities.
“I am here, standing here on the northern flank, on the eastern flank, talking about what we have in terms of the eastern flank and our NATO allies, and what is at stake at this very moment,” Harris babbled with arms flailing.

“I can tell you that the issue facing the Ukrainian people and our allies in the eastern flank is something that occupies one of our highest priorities,” Harris said once she got her bearings, reported the New York Post.
“In terms of paying attention to the needs, understanding it’s a dynamic situation, and requires us to be nimble and to be swift,” Harris said.
Nimble and swift, unfortunately, aren’t two words typically associated with Harris.
A CLASSIC College verbal final exam..when you haven’t studied. You wing it!!😯

Fox News’ @TreyYingst rips Kamala Harris’ speech as “detached from the reality on the ground.”
