AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): It's been almost two weeks without any press conference from Vice President Kamala Harris on the surge at the border after Joe Biden tapped her to fix it. Our next guest says she should never have gotten this role in the first place. Autry Pruitt is the CEO of the New Journey political action committee, and he joins us now to explain.

AUTRY PRUITT: Good morning to you, Ainsley. So glad to be on board.

EARHARDT: Well, we're so glad to have you here. Why do you think she hasn't had a news conference or even visited the border for that matter?

PRUITT: Vice President Harris' appointment was simply because she has brown skin. President Biden is trying to inoculate himself against attacks. After all of the images have come out, after all the mistreatment of kids at this border, after the surge, he needs someone brown so he can ward off criticism. It's simply that fact. What other reason is there? Is she some kind of border expert? Has she spent years at the border? She won't even go to the border.
