Kamala Harris and Joe Biden were supposed to have a seamless partnership.
But cracks are beginning to develop.
And Kamala Harris left jaws on the ground with her reaction to Joe Biden selling her out.
Joe Biden made news when he finally bent to the reality that there was a crisis on the southern border as record numbers of illegal aliens pour into the country.
Biden’s big border announcement was that he was tasking Vice President Kamala Harris with managing the crisis and bringing it to a resolution.
“I’ve asked her, the VP, today — because she’s the most qualified person to do it — to lead our efforts with Mexico and the Northern Triangle and the countries that help — are going to need help in stemming the movement of so many folks, stemming the migration to our southern border.”
Harris instantly knew Biden plopped a thankless task in her lap that Harris had no chance to resolve successfully because the administration was committed to open borders.
Kamala Harris’ advisor Symone Sanders immediately tried to walk back the idea that Harris was in charge of the border crisis.
“I will just reiterate that the vice president is not doing the border. The president asked the vice president to take on the diplomatic efforts with Mexico and the Northern Triangle to address the root causes of migration,” Sanders stated.
Even the left-wing Washington gossip site Punchbowl News mocked Sanders for claiming Harris wasn’t in charge of managing the border crisis.
“So she’s in charge of stemming migration to the border, but she’s not in charge of the border itself. So she’s charged with managing the influx, talking to the Northern Triangle countries but not what happens at the border itself. Got it,” Punchbowl News wrote in one of their daily newsletters.
It’s easy to see why Harris would not want to be associated with this doomed-to-fail responsibility.
Vice presidents always get handed the political stink bombs that the president and his advisors do not want attached too closely to the president’s record.
When Kamala Harris fails at the border, Biden can create a little distance for himself by directing all questions to Harris.
But Harris also understands what’s going on and the political risk she faces.
That’s why one of Harris’ top aides performed verbal gymnastics to try and downplay Harris’ role so to lower expectations.
Even though Biden said he planned on running for re-election in 2024 it was not a definitive statement and Biden has not filed any paperwork to make that a reality.
Biden had to say he planned on running in three years because if he didn’t, his presidency would have been over on the spot.
That means Harris is still likely to be the Democrat nominee in 2024 which is why she was so desperate to avoid responsibility for the border.
