Kamala Harris has come under fire for handing out biscuits with her likeness throughout her first overseas tour of Central American nations ravaged by the boundary crisis.
The vice president talented the treats — that featured a bust of her drawn in frosting without the specifics of her face — to reporters aboard Air Force 2 on Sunday as she set off for Guatemala.

Another set of cookies is reported to have featured Air Force 2, as per a tweet posted Sunday night by Subramanian.
Many critics wondered why the vice president could give biscuits out of her own likeness while she faces backlash for averting the US-Mexico border, a trip she said could be akin to nothing but a’grand gesture.’
The former presidential hopeful visited Guatemala on Monday to attempt to deal with the’root causes’ of illegal immigration.
The vice president drew even more comparisons to a particular French monarch.
