While the crisis in Kabul escalates, Kamala Harris is out running PR in Asia. Kamala Harris recently posed for a photo in Vietnam with a bust of the countries former President Ho Chi Minh. Ho Chi Minh was a devout communist and an enemy of the United States.
From The Daily Wire:
Vice President Kamala Harris, on a weeklong trip to Asia, posed, on Wednesday, in front of a bust of the country’s former president Ho Chi Minh, a revolutionary who served as the nation’s leader for 25 years.
Harris spent the day in Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital, which is about 1,000 miles north of Ho Chi Minh City, the city that was formerly known as Saigon. Saigon was the site of a humiliating military defeat for America, which culminated in U.S. helicopters rescuing soldiers and embassy workers off rooftops as the city fell — remarkably like the situation now unfolding in Afghanistan.
Not surprisingly, Harris is not traveling to Ho Chi Minh City.
“The prospect of Harris visiting Vietnam at this particular moment raised the possibility of the worst photo op for an American in that country since Jane Fonda donned a helmet there in 1972,” Fox News wrote before her trip.
Amid all the horrible news coming out of the Middle East, small things like this reflect poorly on the United States and its leadership.
