Vice President Kamala Harris is under fire again this week for not being able to answer a question about how the Biden administration plans to fight inflation during an appearance on a Sunday morning talk show, said Fox News.
When asked about the plan for inflation in the third year of the pandemic on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Harris gave a rambling, unprepared answer.
“We have to address the fact that we have got to deal with the fact that folks are paying for gas, paying for groceries, and are — need solutions to it. So let’s talk about that,” Harris said.
“Short-term solution includes what we need to do around the supply chain, right? So, we went to the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Savannah, Georgia, and said, ‘Hey, guys, no more five days a week, eight hours a day; 24/7, let’s move the products because people need their product – they need what they need,'” Harris babbled. “We’re dealing with it in terms of the long term. And that’s about what we need to do to pass Build Back Better. It strengthens our economy.”
Previously, Harris had been criticized even by media outlets sympathetic to liberals for being unprepared for basic questions.
This cringeworthy moment from 60 Minutes shows a lot about Kamala Harris
She’s unprepared for legitimate questions because she’s not used to media scrutiny, her record proves she’s dangerously liberal, and she’s horrifyingly unlikeable

“But for all of the questions she took from reporters, immigration advocates and even a group of detained migrant children — whom she met behind closed doors — the vice president had few answers,” said the NYT.
In early December, the Washington Post did a feature story on the “exodus” of Harris staff members, saying that a longstanding complaint by staff against Harris is that she won’t do the work to prepare.
“Staffers who worked for Harris before she was vice president said one consistent problem was that Harris would refuse to wade into briefing materials prepared by staff members, then berate employees when she appeared unprepared,” said the Post.
In July, a survey of voters said that majority believed Harris was not prepared to be president in the event she succeeded Biden.
“A survey administered by Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group found 58.6% of respondents said they were ‘not confident at all’ that Harris, who would succeed President Joe Biden if he were to vacate office, is ready to be president,” said the Washington Examiner.
