CNN’s Siliza’s desperate hopes for ‘Orange Harris Moment’ are ridiculously shattered

On Wednesday, CNN’s Chris Siliza, desperately hoping that it could be “finally” after all this incompetence and disgust, could be an “orange Harris moment” when he traveled to Europe to deal with the crisis caused by the Russian invasion. In Ukraine you can almost see Siliza rubbing the garland of her concern “Is this, after all, the moment of Orange Harris?”

It was a rough first year as Kamala Harris’s vice president.

Overwhelmed by protracted questions about the departure of staff and how suitable he is for the job, Harris struggles to find his political position. (Note: This is not terribly unique. Being vice president is an infamous challenge and, at times, ungrateful, work.)

But as Harris travels to Europe on Wednesday – amid ongoing Russian aggression in Ukraine – the possibility exists that he is about to meet his moment.

… If Harris could find a way out of this turbulent time with Poland, as well as the ongoing pressure from Ukraine for a no-fly zone, it would amount to a big win – not just for the Biden administration, especially Harris.

And the simple fact is that, to this day, Harris has had very little in his time as vice-president.

Yes, Harris must have had a rough time for the most part this past year because he was so unprepared for the work assigned to him but perhaps the situation may change on his last trip to Europe in the end … or Silisa desperately hoped:

Diplomacy and foreign policy continue to be the main mandate of the executive branch. It is not a mission with which a member of the House or a senator is assigned. This is a unique job for a president or a vice president.

This is important – because when talking about Harris (and his performance in office), it is impossible not to mention the possibility of his own future president, if Biden decides not to run again in 2024 or in 2028. The world stage is where politicians prove their mettle and tell voters whether they have what it takes to represent the entire United States as their leader.

Harris desperately needs a moment to show that he can set foot in the top job. Those moments don’t come often, but this week’s trip is one of them.

And if this was an episode West Wing Orange Harris will tackle and overcome the challenge with flying colors, including perhaps negotiating a peace deal between Russia and Ukraine, leaving all spectators amazed for his incredible diplomatic skills. You would expect nothing less from an Aaron Sorkin script designed to ultimately win over the Liberals and Democrats.

However, alas, Cillizza is condemned by the harsh reality which was sharply upset from any such good feeling script as we see this typical crumbly orange Harris moment below after arriving in Poland on Thursday.

But wait … there’s more! Still more predictable cringe:

And so poor Chris Siliger’s hopes of an “orange Harris moment” are shattered and burned on the cold hard rock of sad, tragic reality.
