Remember that time Sen. Kamala Harris ran for president? If you do, you might also remember the time she stuck a knife in front-runner Joe Biden’s back over segregation and busing. It was a really effective attack, and her campaign even had the T-shirts ready to go the moment she dropped the line live on TV.
An upcoming book by two New York Times reporters says that first lady Jill Biden was unhappy with whoever chose Harris to be Biden’s running mate (we doubt it was Joe) because there were millions of the people in the U.S. who hadn’t attacked him during the primaries.
Per the book, Jill Biden was unhappy with the choice of Harris as VP. “Speaking in confidence with a close adviser to her husband’s campaign, [Jill Biden] asked ‘There are millions of people in the U.S., Why do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe?’“ https://t.co/q9QqcVO9wj

The Hill reports:
The book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” from Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns, specifically reveals Harris’s concerns with her portfolio, according to excerpts obtained by Politico.
Martin and Burns also report that first lady Jill Biden was unhappy with the choice for Harris as vice president.
“Speaking in confidence with a close adviser to her husband’s campaign, the future first lady posed a pointed question. There are millions of people in the United States, she began. Why, she asked, do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe?”
The book also notes other tensions between the Biden and Harris camps.
Something I agree on with Jill!

So if she never attacked Joe, she would be ok in Jill’s eyes. What a robust and thorough vetting process. I guess with the “passages of time” history will be the ultimate judge.

She clearly called him a racist on national tv. Debate stage.

Good point. We’d forgotten about that.
She took the one thing Kamala has done right and criticized that?

It was only October when Democratic donors started pushing for Pete Buttigieg to replace Harris on the ticket for 2024.
‘YES, by all means, do this’! CNN op-ed pushes a Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg 2024 ticket and Republicans hilariously CHEER https://t.co/s7dhxK26UD
