Harris touts reopening section of freeway ruined in homeless fire, claims part of infrastructure rebuilding

Never has so much fuss been made about the reopening of a section of I-10 in Southern California that was temporarily closed as a result of the damage caused by a fire started in a large homeless encampment under an overpass.

Vice President Kamala Harris showed up alongside fellow Democrats Gov. Gavin Newsom, Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass, and Sen. Alex Padilla. Not only did Harris try to take credit for the highway opening “weeks ahead of schedule,” she went so far as to suggest that the project was a part of Biden’s efforts to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure.

“[POTUS] and I are rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure — including right here in California. The I-10 will reopen tomorrow morning, weeks ahead of schedule. This is what we can accomplish when we invest in America,” VP Harris tweeted, along with photos from the day.

“It was a week or so ago that we were here, not knowing if we would be here at this moment announcing the reopening for six more months,” Gov. Newsom said. “We were talking about replacing this structure, we were talking about this historic fire that took out about roughly 100 columns — four or five particularly severely — we were talking about replacing a large portion of this freeway.”

“This is a great day in our city, and I think it is a wonderful example of how and why we got this job done,” Bass said. “First and foremost, the workforce that worked 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The numbers of workers on the site here, who doubled and tripled as everyone came together, showing the unity from the White House to the governor, to our senator, all of us standing together to make sure that this got done.”

The grandstanding was akin to an arsonist celebrating the new structure built to replace what they burned to the ground — except this was a repair.
