Tucker Carlson has branded Kamala Harris a ‘power hungry buffoon’ after several aides claimed her office is ‘abusive’, as he demanded to know who is really in charge of America ‘if Joe Biden is not running things.’
The Fox News host took aim at the vice president on his show Friday night claiming she is ‘posing as a competent adult’ when she is really ‘a joke’ and ‘has no idea what she’s doing.’
He pointed to her role in tackling the crisis at the US’s southern border and her focus on getting more women into the workplace.
Carlson said ‘a tsunami’ of migrants continue to flock to the border meanwhile Harris ‘proceeds to drive women out of her own office.’
‘She takes charge of a problem she doesn’t really understand, and then she makes it worse,’ he said.
His comments came after aides and administration officials complained of a tense atmosphere with low morale and trust, and bad communication in Harris’s office in a bombshell Politico report this week.

‘In one of her first official acts as vice president back in February, Kamala Harris decided to declare what she called a national emergency,’ said Carlson.
‘This new national emergency, Kamala Harris informed us is “The mass exodus of women from the workplace.”‘
‘Kamala Harris sounded the alarm,’ he said.
‘Our female workforce emergency, she wrote, demands a national solution.’
Carlson said the issue has not been solved, mocking that ‘there are women, even now, who have chosen to skip the HR department’s latest zoom call and workplace diversity initiatives and are instead reading their children a bedtime story.’
‘Five months later we are sad to tell you that that crisis is still ongoing,’ he said.
Carlson claimed that Harris ‘hasn’t done a lot to help’, pointing to the apparent inner turmoil within her own office.
‘There is now a mass exodus of women from her office,’ he said.
‘The toxic masculinity is coming from inside the house.’
He added: ‘It’s not a place where people feel supported but a place where people feel they are treated like cr*p.’
Carlson pointed to the claims of a dysfunctional workplace, staff resignations and tensions between the West Wing and her team that surfaced this week.

Aides described an environment where they were treated ‘like s***’ saying tensions reached breaking point last week when the vice president finally decided to visit the border.
The decision blindsided officials tasked with arranging travel and others outside her office responsible for messaging across the administration, according to Politico.
The outlet cited 22 officials, former officials, aides and associates of President Biden and Harris who described low morale, a tense atmosphere, porous lines of communication and diminished trust.
Harris’s Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy especially came under fire with one source saying ‘people are thrown under the bus from the very top.’
The White House pushed back on the claims, with Biden’s Senior Adviser Cedric Richmond calling it ‘a whisper campaign designed to sabotage [Harris].’

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain told Axios: ‘The results speak for themselves: a decline of border arrivals from the Northern Triangle, improved vaccine equity, and increased economic opportunities for women.’
But Carlson hit out at Harris over the reports, and said it was the latest in a ‘pattern.’
‘First, Kamala Harris takes charge of a problem she doesn’t really understand, and then she makes it worse,’ he said.
‘Let’s help women in the workforce, she says, then proceeds to drive women out of her own office.
‘Let’s fix the border crisis, she says, as the wave of illegal migrants becomes a tsunami.
‘Take this vaccine, she tells you, it works perfectly. Then she turns to kiss her vaccinated husband while wearing a surgical mask.’

Carlson said it is ‘hilarious to watch’ but hit out at other media outlets which he claimed are afraid to call out her failures for fear of being labeled ‘racist.’
‘Look at her, she is a joke, she can barely get through the day, she has no idea what she’s doing but you can’t say that out loud,’ he said.

‘Point out that she is a power-hungry buffoon posing as a competent adult and they will instantly denounce he was a racist.’
Carlson went on to claim that, despite the vice president being ‘one of the least impressive people’, she appears to be ‘running our country.’
He pointed to a new poll from The Trafalgar Group which shows ‘a majority of Americans say Joe Biden isn’t in charge.’
He also pushed the view of some right-wing critics who accuse Biden of being senile and claimed this had left Harris in charge of the country ‘by default.’
‘We don’t say a lot about Joe Biden’s decline on this show partly because it is depressing and partly because our default position is to always respect old people, especially when they get a little soft, as we all will if we live long enough so it’s bad karma to mock them for it but in Biden’s case as the president, it’s demonstrably true and everyone knows that including his family,’ he said.
‘The question is “who is really in charge if Joe Biden isn’t?” And increasingly it seems like Kamala Harris is running things.

‘If you believe in democracy, this is a problem… But she got the job anyway entirely by default.’
He added: ‘Biden’s senility means an awful lot of power for Kamala Harris and that’s why we are spending the next hour talking about her.’
Carlson has repeatedly taken aim at Harris on his show in recent months, last month calling her ‘fake’ and suggesting she receives special treatment from the media because of ‘how she looks.’
Meanwhile, the Fox host himself was accused of being a frequent source for the media publications he repeatedly claims to dislike in a report last week.
The New York Times reported that he had shared gossip about the Trump administration, Fox News and himself with numerous journalists from different publications, with one source saying ‘he plays both sides’.
