In 2021, Kamala Harris became the lowest-rated vice president in U.S. history at 28 percent, according to Business Insider.
A poll from USA Today and Suffolk University showed that she reached a “historic low for any modern vice president.”
Right on cue, “The View” co-hosts are scrambling to defend Harris by listing her accomplishments.
“Where shall I start?” co-host Sunny Hostin said. “I mean, she was in the Senate, of course. She was the attorney general [of California]. She’s vice president. The Inflation Reduction Act.”
“I mean… She’s was the face of Roe v. Wade. I mean, the list goes on and on.”
In short, Hostin defended Harris by listing different positions she’s held. Despite their best efforts, “The View” revealed nothing noteworthy. WATCH:

Token conservative opposition panel member Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former Trump administration official, said she was “a little surprised” Harris hadn’t lived up to her billing as being “so accomplished, highly qualified.”
“I’m a little struck by the lack of accomplishments in the policy portfolio she’s been given. The border is a big one. It’s not a win. No one is going to win. We haven’t done major border security or immigration reform since the Bush administration. But she is tasked with overseeing it, and the border crisis keeps getting worse,” Griffin said.
And, while claiming Harris’ portfolio was tough, Griffin noted that “if you’re electing someone who’s an 82-year-old in 2024, you need to believe that the vice president is able and willing the next day to be the president. And I think there’s some concern about just the lack of a policy accomplishment that she’s made as vice president.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin implied this was racist: “I’m surprised that there’s concern. I think it has a lot to do with she’s a black woman. Black women get everything done. We’re saved this country’s democracy for centuries,” she said.

“She’s obviously amazing, but what specifically?” Griffin responded.
