United States Vice President Kamala Harris is under fire once more, this time for her remarks tied to the Ukraine-Russia crisis.

Harris seemingly appeared unprepared to discuss the Ukraine crisis when she spoke at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, the Post reported.

“I mean, listen, guys, we’re talking about the potential for war in Europe,” Harris was quoted as saying on Sunday, Feb. 20, when she was asked about how the Biden administration saw the situation’s “endgame” playing out.

“I mean, let’s really take a moment to understand the significance of what we’re talking about,” Harris added. “It’s been over 70 years. And through those 70 years … there has been peace and security. We are talking about the real possibility of war in Europe.”

It didn’t take long for critics to weigh in on the US VP’s words, particularly the part of peace in Europe for 70 years.

The 70 years of peace and security that Harris mentioned included the Yugoslavian civil wars that happened in the 1990s. Aside from that, there is also Russia’s attack on Georgia and Ukraine, Jerry Dunleavy of the Washington Examiner pointed out.

“Also, Berlin Wall only came down three decades ago so I’d quibble with 70 years,” Dunleavy added on Twitter.

In all, the scribe said that it is not true that there have been no wars in Europe for 70 years. Hence, most felt that Harris went and spoke but was unprepared.

“Sending perpetually unprepared Kamala Harris over to attempt to quell a geopolitical crisis is such an outrageous move,” Republican communications maven Matt Whitlock said.

“This word salad … may God help us all,” Sean Parnell, a former GOP House and Senate candidate from Pennsylvania, stated. “We are being led by total buffoons.”

It becomes yet another point of contention with most still recalling how Harris handled the US-Mexico border crisis.
