While in Poland last week, Kamala Harris omitted a word that was a rather large error on her part.
Harris was referring to where the United States stood in defense of Ukraine.
The only problem was that Harris’ original comments included Ukraine in NATO, an organization of which it does not belong at this time.
That Three-letter Word
So, here are the original comments made by Harris…
Kamala thinks Ukraine is part of NATO.

The line that we are specifically interested in, stated, “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.”
As mentioned in our intro, Ukraine is NOT a member of NATO, so her words could be misconstrued by Russia.
When the transcript of the event was published, the White House changed the wording to read, “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. (Applause.)”
Fox News was the first outlet to realize the mistake and report on it…
This was typical of the reaction on social media after the change was reported…
UNBELIEVABLE…..JUST ADD WORDS TO A TRANSCRIPT TO MAKE IT SAY WHAT YOU WANT, NOT WHAT VP EMBARRASSMENT SAID….
THAT IS THE UTMOST IN #transparency….🙄

The transcript should not have been changed without an actual statement to precede.
Kamala Harris should have made a statement to clarify her error, yet the White House simply changed the transcript to make it appear as though she said something she did not.
It is just another effort to cover up a mistake by Biden and/or Harris that has become the norm of this administration.
