Veep in Charge of Humanitarian Border Crisis Visits Chicago Bakery

Let them eat cake, indeed. 

Sometimes, it’s hard to believe that our elected officials spend any time whatsoever imagining what their actions must look like to the rest of us.

This has long been the way of the rulers of men.  Or, the powers that be, if you prefer that nomenclature.  No matter how pure their intentions are at the beginning of their career, they face the same temptations of greed and lust and pride as their predecessors, and often find themselves unable to dedicate their career to their constituents.

And, what’s worse still, is just how cruel their obliviousness can be.

Take Vice President Kamala Harris, for instance, who has been tasked with ending the horrid humanitarian crisis at the southern border…but wound up hanging out at a Chicago bakery this week.

Vice President Kamala Harris on Tuesday visited a bakery in Chicago, coming away with a piece of German chocolate cake — even as she faces scrutiny for not having visited the overwhelmed southern border.

Harris was in the Windy City, where she toured a vaccination site that opened to union workers. She also visited Brown Sugar Bakery on the city’s South Side, where she met with owners and employees.

“She could have gone to a million other places, but she came here, and I’m grateful for that,” one worker told ABC7.

According to the pool note, Harris said her favorite is German chocolate and gets it for her birthday each year, and her staff had preordered a slice for her.

The visit comes as the Biden administration is facing a crisis at the southern border, and Harris has been tapped as Biden’s point person to deal with what the White House describes as “root causes” of the crisis.

Let them eat cake, indeed.
