However, it is clear that Harris appeals to faction of the party’s pending struggle with the activists who are already preparing to pressure the administration to follow through on its biggest-picture progressive campaign-season promises. This what we will be seeing more of – it is the idea that if we can’t get dad to do it – maybe mom will talk him into it.
Back before Biden and Harris reached their co president elect status, the mainstream was actually reporting that President Trump’s base was spinning a conspiracy theory about Harris becoming president as Pelosi seeks to use the 25th Amendment to put Joe out of office.
They vehemently denied this – but recent interviews of the pair are certainly if not subtly dropping hints that Kamala Harris will be our President soon.
Last Thursday, Jake Tapper of CNN did an intimate Interview with them and the conversation was a bit weird – it was as if they were unaware the cameras were rolling and Biden was certainly uncensored about hoe the plan is to go down.
Biden was asked about his relationship with his running mate, to which he gave a rambling reply capped off with the most awkward of ‘jokes’: that under certain circumstances he’d fake an illness and resign.
“It’s a matter of, the thing – we are simpatico on our philosophy of government. Sympatico on how we want to approach these issues that we’re facing. And when we disagree, it’ll be just like so far, it’s been just like when Barack and I did. It’s in private, she’ll say ‘I think you should do A, B, C or D,’ and I’ll say ‘I like A, I don’t like B and C, and s’go OK…’
“And like I told Barack, if there’s a fundamental disagreement we have based on a moral principle, I’ll develop some disease and say I have to resign.”
Biden then goes on to gush over Kamala’s credentials, saying “The great thing is she has a background in the Senate on intelligence, the intelligence community, she has a background in the Senate on a whole range of things that are gonna be pertinent to what we have to do.”
