RNC Slams Harris On Stranded Americans In Afghanistan

She puts politics over people.

While Americans languish under Taliban intimidation, Kamala and Joe Biden have better things to focus on: the California recall race.

Ignoring the plight of stranded Americans, the duo are campaigning for California liberal Governor Gavin Newsom, as he attempts to stay in office in the face of a tough campaign to kick him out. The latest polling shows Newsom with a slight lead, but with gathering momentum. The recall and Republican forces may have crested too early.

FNC: “In a series of ads, the Republican National Committee is hammering Vice President Harris for traveling to California to campaign for Gov. Gavin Newsom while Californians are still stranded in Afghanistan. The ads hold nothing back ripping into the vice president as she gallivants around California with the embattled governor.

One ad is making its rounds on a mobile billboard pointing out that Harris is campaigning for Newsom as he faces a tight recall election while a number of Californians – including 24 Sacramento students and a 3-year-old toddler – are trapped in Afghanistan. ‘Californians are stranded in Afghanistan. Where’s Kamala?’ the mobile billboard says. ‘Campaigning in California.’

Another ad torched Harris for campaigning for Newsom amid the crisis, saying that while she does so ‘California children are stranded behind enemy lines in Afghanistan’ and encouraging people to sign a petition to tell Harris ‘to do her job.’

‘While California students are stranded in Afghanistan Kamala Harris is on a rescue mission for Gavin Newsom,’ another ad read while also encouraging people to sign the petition.”

The Democrats are bleeding nationally and are not happy Republicans are dancing on their hemorrhage. DNC shill Anmar Moussa sanctimoniously whined, “The RNC’s shameless politicization of the end of a 20-year war would almost be believable if they hadn’t spent a year and a half celebrating Donald Trump negotiating with the Taliban,” Moussa wrote. “The American people overwhelmingly support our withdrawal, and thanks to the leadership of President Biden and Vice President Harris, more than 120,000 Americans and our allies were successfully evacuated in the largest airlift in our history. Maybe that’ll make it in the RNC’s next ad,” he continued. Notice how he tries the now tired and obvious dissimulation of conflating the decision to leave Afghanistan with the way Biden left it. How lazy, how unprofessional. Mr. Moussa is not earning his keep.

The RNC’s Hallie Balch did much better. “Instead of trying to save Gavin Newsom’s job, the embattled governor, President Biden, and Vice President Harris should be doing everything they can to get stranded California children home from Afghanistan safely,” Balch wrote. “Our digital mobile billboard and online ads will make it clear to Californians just what sits on top of Democrats’ priority list: political power.”
