New Book Reveals What Biden Thought Of Harris 

Daily Report January 23,2024

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris could be heading for a bitter divorce after a new book revealed that the president did not want Harris to be his vice heading into the 2020 presidential election.

According to The New York Post, veteran Washington journalist Charlie Spiering wrote in his book “Amateur Hour: Kamala Harris in the White House” that Biden didn’t think Harris had the necessary political skill to be his vice.

The president preferred Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer as his running mate in 2020 but caved to public pressure when he picked Harris. Former President Barack Obama and Whitmer — Biden’s preferred choice— reportedly pressured Biden to pick Harris amid the George Floyd protest of 2020.

“As Biden remained indecisive, a key Harris ally tried to reassure him about the idea of Vice President Harris: his former boss, President Barack Obama, who was already a fan,” Spiering wrote in his book. “Behind the scenes, Obama patiently reminded Biden to let go of the past when making his decision. One of Obama’s political advisors [sic] assured me the former president held off endorsing her entirely, making sure that the choice would be Biden’s to make.”

However, Biden — who served as Obama’s vice— was aware that Harris lacked the necessary political skills but ended up making one of the most pandering decisions of any vice-presidential pick in modern history, the book claimed.

First Lady Jill Biden did not want Harris to be her husband’s vice, with Obama’s national security adviser Susan Rice being her preferred candidate.

Joe Biden’s instinct on Harris proves to be correct, with the vice president branded one of the worst at her job. Spiering’s book claims that Harris is still as clueless at her job as she was at the beginning, despite multiple attempts at narrative resets and on-the-job training.

With the 2024 presidential election drawing near, Spiering writes that the Biden-Harris ticket can not be reshuffled without the president’s campaign admitting it made a mistake when it picked Harris.

“Once you are found unworthy, there is little you can do to change people’s minds,” he writes. “Mistakes compounded on mistakes only cemented her reputation and there is little room for sympathy when you reach that level of power. There’s plenty of negative chatter behind the scenes, but few dare speak publicly, for fear of being branded a racist or sexist.”
