Queen Kamala Scornfully Shrugs Off Her Massive Unpopularity: ‘It’s What It Is’

'It’s always who I’ve been ... '

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) Vice President Kamala Harris offered a curt response to the widespread criticism and unpopularity she has faced since taking office, and her retort went a long way in explaining her plummeting poll numbers.  

Rather than addressing the concerns, Harris’s remarks during a Monday interview with Politico came across as dismissive of the public’s perception of her, going as far as implying that she doesn’t care about public opinion. 

“You could have followed me around in Iowa [ahead of 2020],” Harris claimed. “You would have seen the same thing four years ago. It’s always who I’ve been. So I can’t get into people’s heads about why they characterize things as being one way or another. It’s not as though I’ve just found myself. I’ve always been here and never went away.”

When pressed by Politico about her scathingly low approval polls, Harris appeared to deflect from the criticism she has faced. “I’m not going to be distracted from my priority around maternal health,” Harris said after facing a net-negative rating approval of –17%, the lowest ever for any sitting vice president in the history of NBC polls.  

“I’m not going to be distracted from an issue like traveling the country because the highest court of our land just took a constitutional right,” the vice president added. “Otherwise, that stuff will get in your head and debilitate you.”  

Harris’s dismissive attitude was again evident when she remarked, “That’s just what has happened. It’s what it is. I’m not going to sit here and say, ‘Oh, you know, it’s not fair,’ because I am not new to these things.’” 

The aloof Veep attempted to shift blame onto others, claiming that some leaders are targeting her to divert attention from the so-called Biden-Harris administration’s achievements.

At the same time, however, some of Biden’s largest donors have voiced concern about the lack of Harris’s likability, going as far as calling for her immediate ousting ahead of Biden’s re-election campaign. 

“There are so-called leaders who aren’t focused on tackling the issues or challenges this country is facing,” Harris concluded, directly ignoring criticism from within her own party.  

In early August, New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, slammed the Biden administration for the self-inflicted border chaos, calling on imminent changes to address the influx of illegal aliens. “The national government has turned its back on New York City,” Adams said on April 20, 2023 in relation to the open border crisis.

Harris was originally tapped as the border czar by President Joe Biden in 2021 but quickly abandoned that role in May 2022, according to the New York Post’s editorial page.
