Heat on Harris for remark about voters getting “what they asked for”

Vice President Kamala Harris could be taking on the role of a quick gaffe understudy for Joe Biden, considering the reaction she is getting after remarking that American voters “got what they asked for” when they put Biden in the White House.

According to Fox News, Harris was commenting on the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court, during an observance about Black History Month. Jackson is the first Black woman to receive such an honor, and it was a fulfillment of a Biden campaign promise back in 2020 that he would nominate a Black woman to sit on the high court.

But the remark is not going down well with conservatives including U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who tweeted, “The American people didn’t ask for any of this: Record Inflation, Record border crisis, Closed schools, A war on American energy, Afghanistan disaster, Russia invasion of Ukraine.”

Former Donald Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh sent this tweet: “Biden has a 37% approval rating in the recent ABC poll. People didn’t ask for this. She is a terrible politician.”

North Dakota Sen. Kevin Cramer quipped, “Please tell me some talented impersonator dubbed audio over video of a funny thing she said.”

Other critics suggested her flippant remark—Harris acknowledged she “went off script”—will become a centerpiece in campaign advertising this fall, as odds continue rising Republicans will recapture Congress in November, effectively making Biden a lame duck for the final two years of his administration.

Harris has been criticized since taking office for lacking the savvy and experience to be in her position.

Her remarks came on the eve of Biden’s State of the Union speech, scheduled Tuesday evening on Capitol Hill. He is expected to talk lots about Ukraine and how the U.S. and its allies have responded, allegedly hurting Vladimir Putin financially, along with the Russian economy.
