It’s official, Kamala Harris is finally going to take another trip.
But it’s not to the Border.
In the middle of the chaos at the Border, Kamala has decided to go to … wait for it… Asia!

According to FOX News:
Her goal is to “strengthen relationships and expand economic support,” chief spokeswoman Symone Sanders said in a statement.
The trip comes against the domestic backdrop of the continuing crisis at the U.S. southern border. Back in March, President Biden tasked Harris with studying the root causes of the crisis.
Over subsequent weeks, Republicans and even some Democrats urged Harris to visit border towns in the U.S., in order to get a first-hand impression of how the migrant crisis was affecting those communities, but Harris resisted. Then in late June, 94 days after her appointment from Biden, Harris flew to El Paso, Texas, for a brief visit – before flying on to Los Angeles, where she owns a home.
Harris even returned to her Brentwood mansion the very next weekend for what was her fifth trip to Los Angeles since taking office.
Even Dems are tired of Kamala’s avoidance of the issues and her poll numbers have been plummeting.
According to the New York Post:
According to Democratic strategists who talked to The Post and The Hill, the numbers have the party concerned about the midterms.
“As of right now, I think she has the potential of doing more harm than good for some of these candidates,” one strategist told The Hill, referring to Harris.
Under normal circumstances, Harris, the first woman to be elected vice president, would be a natural fit for campaigning on both the recall race and the 2022 midterms, but staunch criticism of her handling of the border crisis as well as dysfunction in her office have potentially made her politically toxic.
In June, Harris took a trip near the US border with Mexico after pressure built for her to go for months. In that time, she snapped at reporters who asked why she hadn’t trekked to the border given that she was put in charge of the crisis there.
In one interview, she told NBC’s Lester Holt that “we’ve been to the border.” When he pointed out that she had not gone as vice president, she whipped back at him with, “And I haven’t been to Europe, And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.”
Meanwhile, there have been persistent stories about issues in her office, where staffers have gone so far as to say they are treated “like s–t,” and which date back to similar concerns from campaign staff that helped derail her 2020 run for president.
Personally, I really don’t care that she’s going to Asia.
They can keep her. She’s not doing us any good here.
But somehow, I have a feeling they may not be interested.
