Why does the press keep forever harping about Kamala making a trip to the border?

What will one trip solve? What will it fix? They won't shut up about it. I 'm watching her press conference now.

Off topic but Kamala has pretty eyes.

6. That's the correct answer.

And as soon as Harris does go to the border, the right wing media will accuse her of staging a photo op or not solving the border "problem" during her visit. She cannot win in the eyes of the right wing media regardless of what she does.

3. Because Republicans keep asking

 

Or at least that's what they say.

Because apparently the press uses whatever the Republicans are talking about to determine what they think is important.

4. It's the "scandal" du jour

A few months ago they were whinging about Biden not calling the border a "crisis." They seem to be incapable of being real reporters.

8. The Press/MSM here in the U.S. is not rooting for democracy. What they're after is to

maximize their revenue. Russian rubles and Chinese yuan are accepted by them.

9. Something to harp


on, like why can't you say radical
Islamic terrorists .Distractions to
create talking points .

When the VP eventually goes to
the border then it's too late and not enough.

The same sh#t on a different day.

10. Some are also unfairly accusing the VP of not encouraging asylum seekers to come to the US

it is really disgraceful that some in the media are either excepting an open border policy, or a closed door policy, nothing in between of a very complex issue while the VP is trying to understand all the ramifications of the situation

I saw part of a segment on Joy Reid where I got the impression that one of the guests just stopped short of implying that the VP was encouraging a racist policy, which she wasn’t

11. Lester Holt got two digs in over that

She mentioned that she was working on the root cause there in Guatemala.

She left it at that, but missed an opportunity to frame any border visit as little more than a photo op.

Stay the course and remained focused on root causes, VP! Ignore the barking dogs.

16. Didn't think of the photo-op answer.

That would have been a great one!

13. Clearly, they have an appetite for bullshit.

And it says a lot more about the pathetic state of media and politics than anything. Stupid games for stupid people.

15. "What will one trip solve? What will it fix?"

Then why does she do it?

17. Because the right is complaining that 'she hasn't even gone to the border' so the media asks.
