Kamala Harris struggles through question on inflation during CBS interview

Vice President Kamala Harris struggled to give a coherent answer when asked about the economy and inflation during an interview Sunday on CBS.

Harris appeared on “Face the Nation” when presenter Margaret Brennan asked her about inflation issues entering the “third year” of the pandemic.

“Was it wrong to consider inflation temporary? It looks like these price hikes will be with us for a while,” Brennan asked.

The question referred to an earlier statement pushed by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, who insisted that inflation was “temporary” and should fall within the next year.

Since then, economists have acknowledged that inflation has gotten worse as the year ends with many speculating that an increase in President Biden’s spending proposals could make the problem worse.

Harris did not provide a clear answer to the anti-inflation question. She appears to have faltered in describing the process before pivoting in support of Biden’s plan to build back better, which was shelved because Senator Joe Manchin, Deutsche Welle, declared his opposition to the legislation.

“We have to deal with the fact that we have to deal with the fact that people pay for gas, they pay for groceries, and they need solutions for it. So let’s talk about that,” Harris said. “The short-term solution involves what we have to do around the supply chain, right? So, we went to the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Savannah, Georgia, and we said, ‘Hey guys, no more than five days a week, eight hours a today ; 24/7, let’s move products because people need their products – they need what they need. “We are dealing with it in the long term. This is about what we have to do to get the rebuilding done better. It strengthens our economy.”

This conflict with a Essential Question reminded critics of earlier reports in which a former employee of the vice president said she repeatedly refused to read briefings and prepare for meetings.

“You obviously don’t work with someone who is willing to do the preparation and the work,” said one former employee. “With Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her lack of trust. So you always support the bully and it’s not really clear why.”

Several of Harris’s employees have since left their posts in the year since she and Biden took office.
