Harris got tangled in her answers. “The purpose of the sanctions has always been and continues to be deterrence,” she said. “But let’s also recognize the unique nature of the sanctions that we have outlined. These are some of the greatest sanctions, if not the strongest that we’ve ever issued, as I articulated yesterday. It is directed at institutions — in particular, financial institutions — and individuals, and it will exact absolute harm for the Russian economy. And their government.”

Every time I think she can’t get any worse at her job, she proves me wrong.

Former Democratic Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard slammed the Biden administration Monday on “Hannity,” calling out Kamala Harris’ “embarrassing” Russia remarks and saying the Vide President does not have the temperament to be the voice of the United States on the world stage.
TULSI GABBARD: This is embarrassing. It’s hard to keep track of all of those jumbles of words. It’s clear she [Kamala Harris] was sent there to be the voice of the United States as a purely political calculation. She has no foreign policy background or understanding. She has no concept of the cost of war nor does she have the temperament necessary to be the voice of the United States on the global stage. It’s embarrassing to see this play out. She talked about deterrence and sanctions. How do you deter someone by punishing them before they do it? It’s simple. This is grade school understanding. If you say I’m going to punish you before you do something, wouldn’t a kid say, “Fine, I might as well as do it anyway.” This is not rocket science, Second, talking about incurring costs. Kamala Harris and Joe Biden have said we are going to incur a cost. They won’t pay the price. They are multi-millionaires. The power elite will not be negatively impacted. Who will pay the price? It’s hard-working Americans across the country and people around the world who are already paying the price and will continue to see things worsen.
