Last week, Jen Psaki explained that border czar Kamala Harris likely wouldn’t be visiting the southern border in the near or distant future, “given her purview.”
2 months ago, Harris said "at some point, absolutely, we will go down to the border" pic.twitter.com/TIRzdnSTlb

Psaki’s case wasn’t convincing to us, but CNN White House reporter Natasha Bertrand
"She’s focused on ['root causes,'] from governance to climate change to tackling food insecurity … but … her team has come out and said publicly, 'We do not own the issues at the border.'" pic.twitter.com/iABeDEo1Y8

That was a really, really long way of saying “Kamala Harris is not actually doing anything about the border and isn’t going to do anything about the border.”
3 minutes of absolute nothing https://t.co/FbVFbpf5hl

Don’t expect Harris to own anything before her WH run. https://t.co/VogaFkfUVN

And don’t expect Natasha Bertrand to be too concerned about it.
This feels like someone running cover for the VP. I incorrectly assumed this was a VP staffer for the first 60 seconds or so before I saw the chyron read “White House reporter”

I thought this was a Kamala staffer not a CNN employee https://t.co/zf7CwFRwCv

Is she a journalist or press secretary for this administration? I can’t tell. https://t.co/X03eD7RMRd

The issue here isn’t actually Kamala, it’s CNN acting as a wing of her PR team. https://t.co/g5CxwnzgtB

Natasha is doing exactly what she was hired to do.
