Joe Biden, as usual, got a little loose with the lips during his first press conference in about 10 months.
As soon as the presser was done, the criticisms started to fly.
As part of the cleanup effort, Harris did an interview on “Today,” and it did not go very well.
Biden made a statement that made it sound as though he was going to take it easier on Russia based on the level of attack carried out against Ukraine.
Harris lost it when she was asked about it.
Host Savannah Guthrie came out firing, stating that it sounded as though Biden gave the “green light” to Russia for a “minor incursion.”
Harris quickly shot back, “The president has been very clear and we as the United States are very clear, if Putin takes aggressive action, we are prepared to levy serious costs, period.
“And I will tell you that part of the posture that we have taken is grounded in the respect and the value we place in–”
Guthrie cut in, “I’m sorry to interrupt … I’m sorry to interrupt. But it is less than clear.
“Thirty minutes after the news conference, the White House press secretary had to actually clarify the president’s remarks –”
Harris then came in over top of her, stating, “I’m being clear with you right now. And so if you’re interested, I’ll continue to be clear.”
As the interview pressed on, Harris did her “I am the VP” line again, stating, “I will repeat myself, and I’m vice president of the United States, and the president and I work closely together, and I know his position because he’s been consistent in that regard.
“If Vladimir Putin and Russia takes aggressive action, it will be met with a cost that will be severe.”
The only problem is that she was not being transparent in terms of what the cost will be.
This administration continues to talk tough without actually backing it up.
Furthermore, Harris continues to tell us to shut up and take her word for it.
On the bright side, even though Biden’s presser was far too many softballs, precisely what the media said it would not do, these interviews on TV for White House personnel are getting more and more uncomfortable.
