Team Kamala STILL cleaning up Harris blunder that US supports Ukraine ‘in defense of the NATO alliance’

Team Kamala is trying to play clean up to a blunder that Vice President Kamala Harris made last week while speaking at the Democratic National Committee in Washington D.C., and then repeated Tuesday on social media.

A now-deleted tweet from the vice president’s official Twitter account read: “When I was in Poland, I met with U.S. and Polish service members, thanking them for standing with our NATO allies for freedom, peace, and security. The United States stands firmly with the Ukrainian people in defense of the NATO alliance.”

Of course, Ukraine is not part of the NATO alliance, yet from an appearance standpoint, it appears that someone in the vice president’s office is confused about that.

In a follow-up tweet, a critical “and” is strategically added to the statement.

“When I was in Poland, I met with U.S. and Polish service members, thanking them for standing with our NATO allies for freedom, peace, and security. The United States stands firmly with the Ukrainian people and in defense of the NATO alliance.

The Democratic National Committee told Fox News “the ‘and’ was omitted by accident.”

Given that Twitter STILL does not provide an “edit” feature, it’s easy to gather that it was just a typo, except Harris spoke those very words last week, drawing plenty of facepalms at the time –which makes it inexplicable that the blunder would be repeated four days later.

“Russia’s invasion threatens not just Ukraine’s democracy, it threatens democracy and security across Europe,” Harris declared. “So I will say what I know we all say, and I will say over and over again: The United States stands firmly with the Ukrainian people in defense of the NATO alliance.”

Interestingly, the official White House transcripts of those remarks added the all important “and,” as seen here:

“Russia’s invasion threatens not just Ukraine’s democracy, it threatens democracy and security across Europe.  And by extension, when democracy is threatened anywhere, it threatens us all.  And the ocean that separates us will not leave us untouched by this aggression.

“So I will say what I know we all say, and I will say over and over again: The United States stands firmly with the Ukrainian people [and] in defense of the NATO Alliance.”
