(USA Features) Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized Vice President Kamala Harris over a seemingly awkward response from NBC News anchor Lester Holt on Tuesday after she was asked when she planned to visit the chaotic U.S. border with Mexico, which she has yet to do since President Biden put her in charge of dealing with it in late March.
“At some point, you know, we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border. So this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border,” Harris responded when Holt when asked if she “had any plans to visit the border,” according to a clip of the exchange Carlson played during a segment of his Tuesday program.
“You haven’t been to the border,” Holt responded.
“And I haven’t been to Europe,” she clapped back, laughing. “And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making.”
Of course, she doesn’t understand the point. No one ever asks her real questions. When was the last time that happened,” Carlson said of the vice president’s response
He went on to say that despite her lack of substance, “Harris has continued to ascend” politically.
“How did she do that? Purely on the basis of how she looks,” Carlson continued. “Meanwhile, because it is so improbable that someone this unimpressive has become so powerful, the people in charge are forced to assure us, almost with hysteria, that she is brilliant and impressive.
“In order to prepare the rest of us for the inevitable march to the White House, they’ve created a Soviet-level cult of personality around her,” he added, in reference to the mainstream media.
Carlson went on to say that much of the media has fawned over Harris, and that one newspaper, the Los Angeles Times, has dedicated an entire section to covering her in flattering ways.
“Not surprisingly, the first dispatch from the LA Times’s new Kamala Harris bureau didn’t focus on her policy accomplishments,” Carlson told viewers. “That would have been a pretty thin section.
“Instead, the paper covers the way she looks. ‘Kamala Harris is all kinds of firsts: the first woman, woman of color, Black woman, mixed-race woman and South Asian elected to national office,'” he said.
“So, in other words, what really matters about Kamala Harris, and what should matter to you, according to the LA Times, is her DNA,” Carlson continued. “Disney went further than that. Kamala Harris, the company explained to your kids recently, isn’t actually a political leader. She’s more than that. She’s like a god.
“Next time you see someone walking across the top of your swimming pool, it’s probably Kamala Harris,” Carlson joked. “She became part of a ‘divine’ group of leaders. Divine in the literal sense, like the Dali Lama or Kim Jong Un. She shot an 18 in her last round of golf.”
