Subject: Kamala’s Dilemma
I am here to reach out to The New York Times, and especially to their executive editor Dean Baquet, to get their input on Kamala’s historic trip to Guatemala.
After putting on her diplomatic genius for all the world to see, she is being bombarded with criticism, some of it from her own party. I understand AOC is outraged. What is the world coming to when a Patriot like Kamala gets attacked. Always putting the needs and welfare of this country and it’s citizen’s as her top priority. With an occasional break for a pastry or two.
Well the right has been showing what they call, a national embarrassment of her trip non stop. I was hoping to see the Old Gray Lady come to her defense, but all I saw was a small AP story yesterday. It must be a deadline issue, yeah that must be it.
KAMALA’S TRIP TO GUATEMALA
Well for months now, the radical right has been harping on the Harris administration to get down to the border. So after just a few short months that dynamo Kamala flew into the Guatemalan/ Mexican border. Which by the way is just about 2,500 miles away from the US/Mexican border. Does it really matter that much, radical right? After all it is still a border, sheesh.
Let’s look at what this trailblazer accomplished on her first diplomatic trip, shall we. Well her main goal was to identify the root causes of this border catastrophe. I agree wholeheartedly with Kamala, you want to do in-depth research while a catastrophe gets exponentially worse by the day. You can never have enough data, I say.
Of course these Conservatives are screaming from the roof tops that the crisis at OUR border needs to be addressed immediately. That flat out says this is a result of reversing all of President Trump’s very successful policies, not investigating “root causes”. They claim Joey’s rapid fire executive orders are an utter failure. The right calls these actions plain vindictive and grossly incompetent.
They point out the trafficking of young children, rampant influx of drugs including fentanyl, people being left for dead as they march to the border in Biden/Harris tee shirts. More and more cages for children being built, I mean holding facilities. Kamala has changed her description on these cages over the last 5 months or so.
Illegal immigrants being bused to airports and flown out in the dead of night under the shroud of secrecy, to avoid any media detection. But those pesky right wing media groups did indeed get footage of this happening. You know, in line with when they caught Pete Buttigieg having secret service pull his bike out of a van, close to his office, you know, so he could claim how green he was by peddling to work. President Trump is a racist.
Well, Kamala’s retort was the main problem for the influx of illegal immigrants was climate change. There, take that radical right! I guess the climate must have really changed since President Trump left office. I guess, it must be attributed to El Niño. Let’s go with that Deano, El Niño is the cause of the catastrophe at the border, our border that is.
The only thing that is a little confusing is she is telling illegals not to come now. Her administration previously said all are welcome. I mean, she just listed the root cause as climate change. I mean, does she want these poor people to remain there and possibly get sunburn? You can see the quandary here, quite vexing. I know AOC is not happy, she would like to have a word with her, maybe after she takes care of her Grandma’s house in Puerto Rico.
GUATEMALA’s TAKE ON ALL OF THIS
Well talk about ingratitude, after Kamala treks all the way to the wrong border, to identify the problem of illegal immigration. You know, the root cause of ALL of this is climate change, and possibly a little government corruption.
Well, Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei, gave his opinion. He lays the blame squarely on the Biden administration, not this climate change nonsense that Kamala is touting. I mean, of all the nerve. Then during their meeting with the press, one reporter had the audacity to ask Kamala why she hasn’t visited the US/Mexican border? Well, without skipping a beat and looking, oh so comfortable and confident, stammered and said, I’m not getting caught up in these Republican games! Fantastic representation of our country and oh so professional, really shows her in-depth insight, and how she stays cool under pressure.
My question, who vetted these reporters down there in Guatemala? I mean don’t they know we usually supply the Harris administration with pictures of reporters who ask tough questions, you know, like Joey has at all his press conferences. Well, I mean his one and only scripted, I mean unrehearsed presser. Well, anyway President Trump is a racist.
Word is, Kamala demanded her cookie back that she gave to Mr Giammattei earlier in the day. Rumor from the right is that the secret service we’re running after his motorcade screaming for her cookie back. Damn scoundrel! I always thought the old cookie trick was a shoe in. It worked wonderfully for “Dr” Jill Biden as she gave them out to the National guard after they were forced to sleep on the floor of the DC parking garage. Where she get the time to bake is beyond me. Maybe they were from Joey’s midday after work supply.
The coverage from this highly successful trip has been nonstop. Well, from the right that is, not all that much from you media icons from the left, you guys the beloved CNN too.
How about Rino Lester Holt grilling obviously exhausted Kamala ( poor woman hadn’t had a pastry for hours), if she had any plans to visit the border. Well Kamala said, THEY have been to the border! But Old Lester fired back…..you specifically, when will you go to the border, you’ve never been yet? Well the unflappable Kamala replied, well I haven’t been to Europe either. What a brilliant comeback, Old Lester just seemed speechless. That was her JFK, FDR, shining oratory moment, breathtaking. Of course, she emphasized her point with her lilting ,coquettish, girlish laughter. Some from the right refer to it as a form of Tourette’s Syndrome. I also understand, she looked out the window of her plane when it passed over the actual border in crisis. It was a little fuzzy from 35,000 feet, but she gets the picture.
The right says, she is so used to being treated with kid gloves from liberal propaganda hacks, that she has folded like a cheap suit when put under scrutiny. They claim her ineptitude for her job title was on full display for the world to see. The right claims, if one or two more questions put the spotlight on her incompetence, she would have broken down into tears, like a young schoolgirl.
Well thank goodness for honest, unbiased reporting from you guys at The Times, Deano. Always showing both sides of the story, always apolitical. A shining example to our children on how to present yourself in a unscrupulous and respectable manner. That is why I was happy to see your minuscule coverage of this developing disaster. Kudos on a job well done.
