Senator John Kennedy called-out Department of Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas Tuesday over the Biden administration’s disastrous border policies, with the DHS Chief admitting he hasn’t spoken to ‘Border Czar’ Kamala Harris in “several weeks.”
“When was the last time you talked to her about securing the border?” asked Senator John Kennedy.
“Several weeks ago,” said the DHS Boss.

A handful of Democratic insiders are sounding the alarm over widespread infighting between Joe Biden’s inner circle and the Vice President’s office as latest polling shows both leaders underwater with American voters.
“It’s hard to miss the specific energy that the White House brings to defend a white man, knowing that Kamala Harris has spent almost a year taking a lot of the hits that the West Wing didn’t want to take themselves,” a former Harris aide told CNN.
“For their part, Harris’ allies are reportedly frustrated with the president for dumping politically fraught issues in her lap — including, infamously, the ongoing illegal immigration crisis at the US-Mexico border,” reports the New York Post.
“They’re consistently sending her out there on losing issues in the wrong situations for her skill set,” said another insider.
“It is natural that those of us who know her know how much more helpful she can be than she is currently being asked to be,” said Lieutenant Governor of California Eleni Kounalakis. “That’s where the frustration is coming from.”
“It is unfortunate that after a productive trip to France in which we reaffirmed our relationship with America’s oldest ally and demonstrated US leadership on the world stage, and following passage of a historic, bipartisan infrastructure bill that will create jobs and strengthen our communities, some in the media are focused on gossip — not on the results that the president and the vice president have delivered,” said Harris’ spokesperson Symone Sanders.

100% KENNEDY: Biden’s Immigration Plan Like ‘Giving Whiskey and Car Keys to a Teenager’
Senator John Kennedy perfectly summed up the Biden administration’s response to the spiraling border crisis Tuesday; saying the plan is like “giving whiskey and car keys to a teenager.”
“I think that the reason the vice president went to Guatemala and met with President [Alejandro] Giammattei is to offer him billions and billions of American taxpayer dollars to try to make his country better, and with no disrespect but that’s like giving whiskey and car keys to a teenager,” Kennedy told “Fox & Friends.”

“President Giammattei is an authoritarian. He presides over a corrupted administration. They’re probably going to steal the money. Corruption is rampant,” Kennedy continued. “Now, you don’t have to be Einstein’s cousin to figure all of this out.”
100% KENNEDY: Dems Demonizing ‘Successful’ Americans While Promoting ‘Class Warfare’
Senator John Kennedy ripped his Democratic colleagues’ latest budget “framework” on Fox News Thursday; saying progressive politicians are demonizing successful Americans while promoting “class warfare.”
“Here’s what I’ve observed. The Democrats are pretty much in total disarray. President Biden is sort of like Kevin Bacon at the end of ‘Animal House,’ when people were stampeding him and he’s saying, ‘calm down, be calm. Everything’s under control.’ They say they have a ‘framework.’ To me, a framework is when your car has two wheels down, its axle dragging, you’re in the ditch, you don’t have any help and you tell your spouse, ‘Honey, I’ve got a framework to get us out of this ditch,” said Kennedy.
“I think people who are successful financially should be applauded, not criticized in America. But I love this term framework. And I’ve seen a little of it. I know this: They’re going to try to crush small business, and they’re making tax policy on the basis of class warfare,” he added.
