Vice President Kamala Harris is not only taking heat for her radio silence over the disastrous U.S. troop withdrawal in Afghanistan but also for touting being the “last person in the room” when the decision was made.
President Biden announced the drawdown of U.S. troops in April.
Following the announcement, Harris appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” and touted her role in the decision.
“Were you the last person in the room?” Bash asked Harris.
“Yes,” Harris responded.
Bash pressed with another question, “And you feel comfortable?”
“I do,” she responded.
Also during the interview, Harris praised Biden for his decision and for his “courage.”
“This is a president who has an extraordinary amount of courage,” she said about decision to withdraw. “He is someone, who I have seen over and over again, make decisions based on what he truly believes… is the right thing to do.”

Critics of Harris commented on social media.
Kamala Harris said she was the “last person in the room” when they planned their failed Afghanistan exit.
Where is she?

Biden had options in April. He overruled his generals' advice on the specifics of the withdrawal. The 'last person in the room' Kamala Harris co-signed.
The Biden administration owns this disaster. It's not up for debate.

@VP you can hide all you want we have a video of you saying you were the last person in the room when this nonsense was hatched! The commercials are already made for 2024

Team Kamala Harris thinks keeping her hidden & not as public on Afghanistan will shield her from the blame like she got failing as border czar.
But her silence on the plight of Afghan women, Christians & Americans left behind is deafening.
We know she’s in on every decision.

Before the disastrous withdrawal, Harris was more than willing to take some credit for the U.S. troop withdrawal in Afghanistan.
Now, Harris is hiding from the public eye proving she is not fit to be in the White House in any capacity.
Tragically, the U.S. is a rudderless ship because of the substantial lack of leadership between Harris and Biden and their incompetence is making America and the world a more dangerous place.
