Kamala Harris Ignores Border Crisis, Instead Buys Cake in Chicago


Vice President Kamala Harris is supposed to be fixing the humanitarian crisis at the southern border of the U.S. — but she’s too busy with her cake to lift a finger to help the situation. President Joe Biden handed the issue off to her back on March 24, but Harris hasn’t visited the border or even held a news conference in the two weeks since. She could have made a quick detour while she was in California to celebrate Easter in her home near Los Angeles or skipped her trip to Oakland to push the administration’s new infrastructure bill. Instead, she turned up Tuesday at Brown Sugar Bakery on the South Side of Chicago to hobnob with business owners and local politicians, Fox News reported. While migrant kids shrouded in foil blankets remain packed into plexiglass pens and border facilities fill up beyond capacity, Harris took the opportunity to nab a piece of German chocolate cake — her favorite — and talk about equity in vaccine distribution at her stop in the midwest. Harris joined the state’s Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx at the bakery after it appeared on a list of small businesses she might like to visit, according to WLS-TV.
