White House Aide Comes Clean, Blames Kamala Harris Not Staff For Horrible Start As VP

Sharing is caring!

President Joe Biden’s team blames Vice President Kamala Harris for her awful first year in office according to “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future” by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns.

According to the book, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield was the one calling out Harris. The book says, “In private, Bedingfeld had taken to noting that the vice presidency was not the first time in Harris’s political career that she had fallen short of sky-high expectations.

“Her Senate office had been messy and her presidential campaign had been a fiasco. Perhaps, she suggested, the problem was not the vice president’s staff.”

Bedingfield said: “The fact that no one working on this book bothered to call to fact check this unattributed claim tells you what you need to know. Harris is a force in this administration.”

That is not denial.

The book also quotes Jill Biden trashing Kamala.

“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?”

Jill Biden’s spokesman, Michael Larosa said: “Many books will be written on the 2020 campaign, with countless retellings of events — some accurate, some inaccurate. The First Lady and her team do not plan to comment on any of them.”

“One senator close to her, describing Harris’s frustration level as ‘up in the stratosphere,’ lamented that Harris’s political decline was a ‘slow-rolling Greek tragedy,’” Martin and Burns wrote.

“Her approval numbers were even lower than Biden’s, and other Democrats were already eyeing the 2024 race if Biden declined to run.”
