Fox host Tucker Carlson lambasted the Biden administration for sending Vice President Kamala Harris to Europe last month to conduct talks on the frail Russia-Ukraine situation.
Past performances by Harris demonstrate she’s not qualified and not “serious” enough to tackle such an urgent task as easing tensions between the two nations, Tucker said Thursday; however, that’s exactly what happened last month as the conflict escalated.

“This is just not a serious person, not surrounded by serious people, and yet we are in an extremely serious moment that demands seriousness. Of course, ‘we must together, work together’ to see where we are going together, but also see it as a moment together,” Tucker said quoting Harris, after examining many of her interviews over the past four years.
“When Kamala Harris speaks, you get the feeling you’re either too dumb or too smart to understand what she’s saying, but then within a few sentences, you settle firmly on the latter,” Tucker jabbed. “What are our European allies to think of this? Well, of course, they’ve come to the same conclusion.”
“Less than two weeks ago, as all of this was brewing on the brink, the Biden administration sent that person, Kamala Harris, to represent the United States at the Munich Security Conference in Germany and while she was there, she assured the world that she and Joe Biden had the situation completely under control. Yes, Putin would like to invade Ukraine. Of course he would, but not on her watch, not while Kamala D. Harris was on the same continent,” Tucker mocked.
Of course, fast-forward to today, and Russian forces are on the verge of taking the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, as the situation has rapidly deteriorated.
Carlson also called attention to a confusing word salad statement made by Harris at the conference representing a total embarrassment for the US, “and yes, this is a verbatim quote from the Munich Security Conference”:
“Perhaps this is a moment, as life does present us with those moments that challenge us, to ask: What is our reason for being? And I think we all know the history of NATO and its reason for being. The spirit behind this term we use, the transatlantic community. The word ‘community,’ meaning a collection, not a collection of individuals who see themselves as a collection, then as one. And that’s where we are now.”
Instead of deescalating tensions, the vice president actually made the situation worse by encouraging Ukraine to join Nato, Tucker outlined.
The day after Kamala Harris said the words we just read, talked about her reason for being, the day after she said that, she explicitly encouraged Ukraine to join NATO.
“I appreciate and admire President Zelenskyy’s desire to join NATO,” she said that at a press event … We saw that, we thought obviously the Biden people must have this under control in some way we don’t know about. They must have some secret back channel to Putin. They must have been fully assured that saying something so unbelievably inflammatory is not going to push Putin to invade Ukraine. We assume that, I mean, how could it be otherwise? It’s the United States. It’s a real country. The idea that Ukraine might join NATO obviously causes crisis in the first place, whatever you think of it. We know because we’ve watched for years, the more Western leaders pushed the idea of Ukraine and NATO, the closer Russians came to invading Ukraine. It’s not a defense of that, it’s just observation of it. That’s true. So obviously, no sane person would say something like that with Russian troops massed on the Ukrainian border. You’d have to want an invasion of Ukraine to say something like that and at the time, we didn’t think they did want that. So, we got it completely wrong and honestly, we’ve continued to get it wrong ever since.
According to Carlson, Harris’ skillset, which includes dating popular figures like daytime talk show host Montel Williams, would be better suited to greeting TikTok influencers and cutting children’s PSAs – not for avoiding nuclear catastrophe.
You think, you know, the key to good management is matching the person with the job. Not everybody is good at everything. So, if you’re looking for someone to date Montel Williams, well, maybe she’s the person you would choose. You could be a solid choice that she’s done it before. Dating Montel Williams, you know, it’s something that’s within her range of experience. Is she good at it? We can’t say, but she’s done it, but this new gig, deescalating a world-ending conflict with a nuclear armed rogue state? No, no, not when nuclear reactors are on fire, but they’re doing it anyway, humiliating our country, jeopardizing our safety and the future of the world.
