(RepublicanWire.org) – During a speech on Friday evening at the “Pennsylvania Democratic Party Reception,” Biden touted his party’s success in protecting the Affordable Care Act from being dismantled during former President Donald Trump’s term.

Trump had campaigned on replacing Obamacare, though as Biden claimed Friday, Democrats campaigned hard in 2018 to prevent that from happening. In his speech, he warned that the GOP will go after their health care if they gain the congressional majority.

Two-thirds of the way through his address, Biden said, “And, of course, they’re going try for their 499th time, or whatever the number is — they’re still determined to eliminate the Affordable Care Act. And, by the way, if they do, that means — not a joke, everybody.”

Then he made his latest viral statement. “Not a joke, everybody!” Biden said with slurred speech. “That’s why we defeated it in 2018 when they tried to do it we went to 54 states.”

Conservative critics concerned with the president getting the number of states wrong, took to twitter to mock him.

Kamala Harris joined Biden Friday evening, and the joint appearance was super awkward. Kamala had to keep old Joe from falling off the stage.

Joe Biden’s mental decline continues to worsen with each passing day.

Many Americans speculate that Biden, who is the oldest president in U.S. history, is suffering from age-related dementia. He turns 80 next month.

Dr. Ronny Jackson, who served as the former White House physician under both Presidents Obama and Trump, told Fox News that he believes Biden will be forced to resign or face the 25th Amendment over issues related to his fitness for office.

“Something’s SERIOUSLY wrong with Biden,” Jackson wrote on social media. “And it’s only going to get WORSE! It’s past the point of embarrassment.”

Jackson continued, “He’s lost. He’s confused. He can barely put a coherent sentence together. He MUST have a cognitive exam and release the results!” Jackson added.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Vice President Kamala Harris is facing a storm of backlash after telling an audience that Florida will receive Hurricane Ian aid based on “equity.”

During the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum, Harris claimed that the communities hit hardest by so-called “climate change,” are low-income communities and people of color, adding that they will be first in line for help. 

“We have to address this in a way that is about giving resources based on equity, understanding that we fight for equality, but we also need to fight for equity,” Harris said, adding “If we want people to be in an equal place sometimes we need to take into account those disparities and do that work.”

Harris’ comments caused a wave of criticism from Florida residents and Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R-Fla) team.

“This is false. @VP’s rhetoric is causing undue panic and must be clarified. FEMA Individual Assistance is already available to all Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian, regardless of race or background,” DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw said. 

Students for Trump founder Ryan Fournier tweeted, “You can’t make this up. Kamala Harris said the administration will be giving hurricane resources ‘based on equity’ by directing funds to ‘communities of color.’ I guess everyone else is just screwed.”

Even Tesla CEO and billionaire Elon Musk argued against Harris saying the funds “should be according to greatest need, not race or anything else.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – On Saturday a preview of her interview on the NBC show “Meet The Press” was shared and it included Kamala Harris’ swipe at what she said was an “activist court.”

“How much confidence do you have in the Supreme Court?” host Chuck Todd said to the vice president.

“I think this is an activist court,” she said.

“What does that mean?” the host said.

“It means that we had an established right for almost half a century, which is the right of women to make decisions about their own body as an extension of what we have decided to be, the privacy rights to which all people are entitled. And this court took that constitutional right away, and we are suffering as a nation because of it,” she said.

“That causes me great concern about the integrity of the court overall. Especially as someone who my life was inspired by people like Thurgood Marshall, and by the work on that court of Earl Warren to bring an unanimous court to pass Brown v. Board of Education,” the vice president said.

“This is the court that on once sat Earl Warren, Thurgood Marshall and Sandra Day O’Connor. It’s a very different court,” she said.

Turley, a George Washington University Law School professor, tore into Harris on his own blog.

“The fact that the Court overturned a long-standing precedent does not mean that it is an ‘activist court.’ As I have previously noted, justices take an oath to uphold the Constitution and to ‘faithfully and impartially’ interpret the law,” the professor said.

“It is bizarre to argue that they should vote for some interpretation of the Constitution that they believe is wrong and unfounded just to preserve precedent. If that view had prevailed in the past, Brown v. Board of Education would have upheld the racist precepts of ‘separate but equal’ in Plessy v. Ferguson. When it comes to fundamental rights, justices should faithfully interpret the Constitution.

“There may be a greater hold of precedent in statutory interpretations (since Congress can address erroneous or conflicting interpretations).

“However, in the interpretation of the Constitution, justices are fulfilling an oath to ‘support and defend the Constitution of the United States,’” he said.

“Stare decisis may protect the Court as an institution from public criticism, but that should not override the duty to correctly and faithfully interpret the Constitution.

“As I noted in my exchange with Professor Sepper, the liberal justices have shown the same willingness to overturn precedent when they have a majority or to create new doctrines with sweeping social and political implications.

“The left did not denounce the Warren Court when it was handing down such sweeping new rulings. It did not denounce Justice Breyer when he wrote routinely voted in dissent on death penalty cases despite decades of precedent supporting the right of states to impose capital punishment,” the legal scholar argued.

“There is little doubt that the liberals on the Court would overturn Heller and the Second Amendment cases if they had a majority. Indeed, while denouncing the ‘activist’ conservative justices for overturning cases, Democratic senators demanded that cases like Heller and Citizen’s United be overturned.

“During the confirmation hearing for Justice Kavanaugh, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) demanded that Kavanaugh promise to respect stare decisis on cases like Roe, but then called for overturning cases like Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission,” he said.

“Democratic groups often decry the conservative majority as ‘partisan’ while demanding the packing of the court to guarantee an immediate liberal majority.

“Justice Sonia Sotomayor has assured liberals in public speeches that ‘mistakes’ in such high-profile opinions can be ‘corrected’ by the Court in later decisions.

“In other words, when a majority forms with an opposing jurisprudential view. Does that make her an activist justice according to Vice President Harris?” he posited.

“Dean Erwin Chemerinsky celebrated that ‘Justice Sotomayor wrote a dissent, in which she said, ‘Trinity Lutheran v. Comer was wrong then, and it’s wrong now.” While that is a paraphrasing of the justice, does that mean that she has discarded the hold of precedent for politics? Of course not.

“She is interpreting the Constitution consistently and faithfully according to her own jurisprudential viewpoint.

“In the recent Carson opinion, Sotomayor makes clear that ‘this Court should not have started down this path’ in Trinity Lutheran and clearly rejects its hold on the Court. Not surprisingly, Chemerinsky approves of that position,” the law professor said.

“Yet, Chemerinsky denounced the conservative justices as ‘partisan hacks.’

“Hillary Clinton declared that she would only nominate justices who would overturn Citizen’s United. Would those justices then be ‘partisan hacks’?

“None of this means that Harris should not disagree with the Court or reject its reasoning. As Chief Justice Roberts said this weekend, that is fair game. Rather it is the attack on the integrity of the justices that is beyond the pale in my view,” he said.

U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has responded following increased criticism of the nation’s highest court, largely from Democrats.

“People can say what they want, but simply because people disagree with an opinion is not a basis for questioning the legitimacy of the court.

“If the court doesn’t retain its legitimate function of interpreting the Constitution, I’m not sure who would take up that mantle. You don’t want the political branches telling you what the law is, and you don’t want public opinion to be the guide about what the appropriate decision is,” Roberts told the audience.

Justice Roberts makes an important point, the political branches, Democrats and Republicans, should not have the power to tell us what laws mean.

(RepublicanWire.org) – A recent poll from Harvard University Center for American Political Studies (CAPS) shows that Vice President Kamala Harris would beat Florida Governor Ron DeSantis 39 percent to 37 percent in a hypothetical 2024 presidential contest.

Note that as of June 21 poll, a whopping 52 percent of voters had an unfavorable opinion of Kamala, and she has routinely face-planted in interviews and appearances, blurting out incomprehensible word salads and offering little of substance. She has failed miserably in accomplishing anything on the two major issues Biden has assigned her: border control and voting rights. Border crossings are at an all-time high and she still hasn’t found time to visit there, while voting rights have all but disappeared from the national conversation.

Her interviews and cackles have become legendary, with fragmented, repeated sentences saying nothing and her cringe-worthy laugh piercing even the most tolerant ears.

This is not presidential material. Contrast it to Ron DeSantis, whose approval rating in April was at a robust 59 percent, according to a poll, and is probably even higher now. Unlike Kamala, he is an effective public speaker and routinely swats away his detractors with powerful arguments.

The poll claiming Kamala would beat DeSantis was conducted from June 28 to 29 among 1,308 registered voters. Notably, 23 percent of respondents were “undecided.”

The poll found that 71 percent of respondents said Biden should not run again, with 45 percent of those saying he’s a “bad president,” 30 percent citing his age and 26 percent saying it was time for a change.

The survey had good news for Harris in terms of the 2024 Democratic primaries, however. She placed second behind Biden among Democratic voters, garnering 18 percent support to the president’s 30 percent.

Even with these results, many took to twitter to show their support of DeSantis.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Nearly two dozen black White House staffers have left the administration since late 2021 or are planning to leave soon due to an unsupportive work environment and little chance for promotion.

A former White House official told Politico according to a report from Tuesday, the remarkable number of black staff departures has led some aides to call it a “Blaxit” or “Black Exit.”

“We’re here and we’re doing a lot of work, but we’re not decision-makers and there’s no real way to become decision-makers,” a current black White House official said, according to the report. “There is no real feedback and there is no clear path to any kind of promotion.”

Another black worker said low wages are driving many minority staff members out, especially in a city with one of the highest cost of living in the country.

Entry-level White House salaries only start at $48,000.

The first notable exit from this ‘Blaxit’ movement came in December 2021, when Vice President Kamala Harris’ chief spokesman Symone Sanders announced she was leaving. She landed on MSNBC where her self-titled show debuted on May 7.

In the weeks and months following early 2022, Harris senior assistants Tina Flournoy, Ashley Etienne and Vincent Evans all left, as did her public engagement head Cedric Richmond.

Including those departures that began late last year, at least 21 black staffers have now or are planning to leave the White House in the coming weeks and months.

Black staffers who have left the White House in the past five months include public engagement assistant Carissa Smith; gender policy officer Kalisha Dessources Figures; Senior Director of the National Security Council Linda Etim; Digital Engagement Director Cameron Trimble; and associate counsel Funmi Olorunnipa Badejo.

Also leaving are Chief of Staff Ron Klain advisers Elizabeth Wilkins and Niyat Mulughetal; press assistant Natalie Austin; National Economic Council staff Joelle Gamble and Connor Maxwell; and presidential staff aides Danielle Okai, Reggie Greer and Rayshawn Dyson.

Other black government staffers who plan to leave in the coming weeks include Deputy White House Adviser Danielle Conley and Assistant to the Council of Economic Advisers Saharra Griffin, according to the Politico report.

Some staffers left on good terms, including for other administration and graduate school jobs, while others said they wanted to refocus after years in a tense work environment with little free time or support from superiors.

“I have worked for both the president and vice president throughout the campaign cycle and found the opportunity to serve the American people in the Biden-Harris White House nothing short of an honor,” Austin said upon her departure.

“I loved my experience on the press team, and left because I wanted a chance to spend more time with family after nearly three years of campaigning and government work.”

Many black White House staffers said Richmond’s departure was particularly difficult for them.

They described the former Harris aide as a “big brother,” “voice of the people” and a “core” for black staffers. His departure, they added, has made people “a little nervous.”

“They generally brought in a lot of black people to start with without ever setting up infrastructure to keep them or help them be successful,” said a black White House official. “If there’s no clear infrastructure to be successful, you become as invisible in this space as if you weren’t there.”

Richmond, now a senior adviser to the Democratic National Committee, told Politico that the White House gave young black staffers more responsibility than other governments and that many who left were doing so for higher-pay jobs.

“A lot of people have had this rut for a while and it’s a hard grind, so a reduction in the pace of work and a better salary will be more attractive,” he says. “For young African-American staffers who can earn these kinds of salaries, it changes not only their plight, but also that of their families.”

The exodus of black staffers had raised concerns among those pushing for diversification in government offices.

“I’ve heard about an exodus of black White House officials — ‘Blaxit’ — and I’m concerned,” Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies chairman Spencer Overton told Politico.

The group’s chairman, which tracks staff diversity figures in government, added: “Black voters accounted for 22 percent of President Biden’s voters in November 2020.”

“It is essential that black staffers are not only recruited to serve in senior, middle and junior positions in the White House, but are also involved in key policy and personnel decisions and have career advancement opportunities.”

A White House official pushed back criticism, claiming that 14 percent of current Biden and Harris staffers are black, which is in line with America’s 13.4 percent black population.

Karine Jean-Pierre, Biden’s new press secretary, said: “The president is incredibly proud to have built what continues to be the most diverse White House staff in history, and he is committed to the historic representation of black. staff and all communities.”

“This is a normal time for turnover across the board in any administration and black personnel have been promoted faster than personnel who are not diverse,” she added.

(RepublicanWire.org) – A majority of Americans want President Joe Biden to secure the southern border with tougher immigration policies. However, it seems the will of the American people falls on deaf ears under the Biden regime.

Customs and Border Protection encountered 221,2020 migrants illegally crossing the southern border in March, marking a 22-year high as the Biden administration releases an unprecedented number of border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior.

The Department of Homeland Security warns as many as 18,000 migrants will flood across the southern border per day if Title 42 is revoked.

The Biden administration has no plans to stop the mass illegal migration surge.

In fact, the Biden White House is “grateful” for the job Vice President Kamala Harris has done as border czar.

Asked during Wednesday’s briefing whether Harris could still be trusted to halt the influx of illegal immigrants, White House press secretary Jen Psaki recognized Harris’s handling of the border crisis.

“A question about immigration. Does the president still have confidence that the vice president can get to the bottom of root causes of migration?” Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy asked.

“He absolutely does,” Psaki replied. “And he’s grateful for her work in doing exactly that.”

“Why?” Doocey shot back. “What gives the president confidence when he sees that March 2022 has 28 percent more migrant encounters at the border than March 2021, when she got this assignment?

Psaki insisted the administration has addressed the root cause of migration by forging immigration agreements with Costa Rica and a partnership with Mexico to stem “irregular migration.”

“Addressing root causes means working with countries in the region to take steps to have regular partnerships and be able to have people sent back to the region as needed,” she said.

A majority of Americans have an unfavorable view of Harris. Fifty-six percent of likely voters have an “unfavorable” view of the vice president, according to a Rassmussen survey conducted on March 27 and 28.  Forty-seven percent said they had a “very unfavorable” impression of Harris, while 9 percent viewed her ‘somewhat unfavorably.

Most Americans also want Joe Biden to implement tougher immigration policies. A new CBS News/YouGov poll reveals that 52 percent of Americans believe Biden “should be tougher on illegal immigrants, while just 27 percent say he is “handling things right” at the border.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Fox News host Tucker Carlson tore into Vice President Kamala Harris over her many failures and even speculated on what her next move will be.

“Harris is going back to Europe to see how much worse she can make this disaster,” Carlson said, offering his opinion of her next moves.

Carlson said that the disaster in Ukraine is spinning out of control, claiming it is “shocking to see Europe just lost a huge percentage of its energy supply, which is not a small thing. We’ve been taken by surprise by the whole thing. We’re not the only ones who were, but we’re willing to admit it.”

Carlson blamed Harris, who he said is not a “serious person” or someone who is capable of handling the situation in Ukraine.

“So, why didn’t we see this coming, this total loss of control? Well, because we assumed that if things were dire, serious people would be involved in fixing them, but we looked up and we saw Kamala Harris involved, and that reassured us,” Carlson said.

“Harris had just come back from Europe, where she’d been conducting diplomacy with our allies, and that appeared to be proof this could not really be a big deal. The situation in Ukraine had been legitimately serious. If the future of Europe and the world hung in the balance as now so obviously it does, of course, the Biden administration would not have sent Kamala Harris to fix it because that’s not her job. Kamala Harris’s job is to trot down to the Blue Room periodically to greet delegations of TikTok influencers or to cut occasional PSAs for the Children’s Dental Health Awareness Month, which is in February. So, we assumed she’d be working on that right now,” Carlson said.

“But averting war with Russia? Saving the civilized world? C’mon. That is absolutely not Kamala Harris’s job. That was our assumption, but as noted, we were wrong. Why were we wrong? Well, we spend a lot of time watching Kamala Harris. You probably don’t. Unless you are a junior producer at MSNBC, you’re probably not that familiar with Kamala Harris. We should say, by the way, we didn’t underestimate Vladimir Putin. We overestimated Joe Biden, but we knew that once Kamala Harris was involved, it couldn’t really be that serious and we knew that because this is what she’s like,” he added.

Former GOP Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich offered similar comments about Harris last week, saying her speaking blunders are a reason to pray for President Joe Biden’s health.

Gingrich told Fox News’s Sean Hannity that the VP’s repetitive ”the passage of time” remarks — where she said the phrase at least four times within the span of a minute while speaking in Louisiana — highlight an incoherence on her part.

“First of all, if you want a strong reason to pray for the health of the president of the United States, you are reminded again today that the region is the vice president. Not totally incoherent. He may or may not have cognitive decline problems at his age but at her age, she’s just dumb,” Gingrich said.

“Let’s be clear. Kamala Harris might be the dumbest person ever elected vice president in American history. And that’s why people keep resigning. If you are a national security advisor and you were competent and you worked hard and you knew what you are doing, and you watched her in Poland come up to break up laughing when she’s asked about Ukrainian refugees? You’d have a sense of total humiliation. So I’m not surprised that the particular advisor resigned. Because it’s very clear that Kamala Harris should never, ever, be allowed to leave the country,” he added.

“I think we have never seen a national political figure — not just the vice president, but a national political figure — who is as self-destructive as Kamala Harris. I mean, you watch her day after day, you watch her go to Poland, break up laughing in a press conference with the Polish president when she is asked about the refugees from Ukraine. You see her tenth person leave her staff, who was, by the way, the National security advisor who was with her in Poland, who must have been totally embarrassed and demoralized by watching her break up laughing when talking about the Ukrainian refugees. And you watch other things she’s done,” he continued.

“And I thought that she was an insurance policy to make sure that nobody tried to replace Biden no matter how bad his cognitive problems, but I’m beginning to think that she is like Spiro Agnew, who turned out to be so bad that when he got replaced, he set the stage for Nixon to be replaced,” Gingrich said.

He continued, “And I have a hunch that she is on a very, very short fuse right now because I think most Americans realize that the prospect of her being president is genuinely terrifying. I mean, it’s bad enough to think about Biden being president when he is clearly not totally in touch with reality, but the idea of being replaced by Kamala, I think, is astonishingly frightening.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – Texas Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson has introduced a resolution calling for Vice President Kamala Harris to be removed from her position as the “border czar.”

The resolution, which has 26 co-sponsors, comes as Republicans argue Harris and President Joe Biden have completely failed to handle the border crisis.

There were 164,973 encounters with migrants at the southern border in February, which is up 7% from January and also a 63% increase from the previous year, according to new U.S. Customs and Border Patrol data.

“Instead of working for the American people, Kamala Harris has worked against us by ignoring her responsibilities as Border Czar. Rather than doing her job, Harris sits back and watches as illegal immigration skyrockets, countless people at home and abroad are victimized by drug and human trafficking, and CBP officers are left without resources or support from the Biden Administration. Make no mistake – Harris’ approach is by design, and she must be stopped,” Jackson said.

“It is past time for Joe Biden to remove her from the Border Czar role and appoint someone who will put Americans’ interests first. A nation without borders is no nation at all. We need a real leader at the helm who will secure our southern border, and, in turn, our country’s bright future. A single canned photo op and pointless foreign trips to Northern Triangle countries on the taxpayers’ dime are not cutting it. I urge Speaker Pelosi to bring my resolution to the House Floor immediately, for the American peoples’ sake,” Jackson continued.

A few months ago, Texas Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar, who represents an area along the southern border, also called for Harris to be replaced as the “border czar.”

“I’ve moved on from the vice president to say, ‘OK, let’s work with the ambassadors and let’s work with the State Department. Let’s work with the Homeland Secretary,’” Cuellar said.

“I think that’s the way to address it, but I know that the media has put a lot of focus on the vice president, but with all due respect, she was given that title. I don’t think she’s, with all due respect, put the effort in there…We’ve got to look at other folks that have the expertise on that,” Cuellar added.

Harris, who was appointed by Joe Biden to serve as the “border czar,” has been under fire for a year over her failure to visit the crisis at the border.

Rumors are flying that Biden’s administration is at least looking into the idea of replacing Harris as vice president and having her nominated to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.

White House insiders are painting a picture of total chaos and discontent between Biden and Harris, according to CNN.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Recently there are some reporters from The New York Times to release a book. While they are not former White House staff it is possible that they could still have some insight into some things.

One thing that makes this one especially interesting is that according to this book they are revealing some details about Kamala Harris that are not so flattering. Mind you this is coming from reporters from The New York Times which is known to be left leaning.

Apparently, Harris was not very happy about being appointed to try to fix the problem at the southern border. I can’t imagine why. Probably because they are ridiculous policies, and are literally impossible at solving the problem.

She also thinks that Biden’s “white inner circle” has issues with her. I’m sure she thinks it’s probably a race thing, but to be truthful that’s probably because she’s not the brightest crayon in the shed.

According to the Daily Mail,

Kamala Harris wasn’t happy with Joe Biden appointing her to address the southern border crisis, wanting a more softball foreign policy assignment, and thinks the president’s ‘white inner circle’ looks down on her, according to claims made in a new book.

During an April meeting with Congressional Black Caucus leaders, Biden praised Harris and said she would do ‘a hell of a job’ handling immigration.

‘The vice president corrected him at once,’ New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns wrote in their new upcoming book This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future.

The book also explains that the first minority and female vice president felt belittled by Biden’s white staff.

‘Some of Harris’s advisers believed the president’s almost entirely white inner circle did not show the vice president the respect she deserved,’ they wrote.

‘Harris worried that Biden’s staff looked down on her; she fixated on real and perceived snubs in ways the West Wing found tedious,’ they added, according to excerpts published by Politico on Tuesday.

Biden tasked Harris with addressing immigration – and the vice president took her opportunities to share her dissatisfaction with the role.

According to the book, Harris’ aides felt that the task of addressing the southern border crisis, in any way, was politically undesirable and wanted the vice president to have a more softball foreign policy assignment – like overseeing relations with Nordic countries.

There’s a lot more that’s in his book that dishes dirty details on Kamala Harris. One of the things that the book mentions is the whole magazine cover that she didn’t like because of certain outfits and how it made her look inferior to other professionals. And then this became an issue of race as well.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Much has been reported about the toxic work environment that exists over at the office of Vice President Kamala Harris.

A new book written by reporters at The New York Times claims that that environment, as well as public missteps that have been taken by Harris, is the sole fault of the vice president herself.

On Tuesday, Politico reported on some of the details of the upcoming book, called “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future.” In it, the authors, Alex Burns and Jonathan Martin of The New York Times, write that Kate Bedingfield, the communications director at the White House, blamed Harris for all the problems happening in her office.

Since just last summer, 10 different members of Harris’ staff have left her office. The latest was Nancy McEldowney, the national security adviser for Harris, who stepped down from her post on Monday.

Harris’s team has quipped that the White House was mismanaging her staff, and that was the main reason why so many of them were leaving their posts.

In response to that, the authors wrote that:

“Bedingfield 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 [2020] presidential campaign had been a fiasco. Perhaps, she suggested, the problem was not the vice president’s staff.”

In response to the Politico report, Bedingfield denied that she ever said those words. She sent an email to Politico that read, in part:

“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. Vice President Harris is a force in this administration, and I have the utmost respect for the work she does every day to move the country forward.”

Those comments are very similar to many that have come out of the White House in response to questions or criticisms about Harris and the job she’s done as vice president. It wouldn’t be all that surprising, then, if Bedingfeld did in fact say what was written in the book, but wants to publicly back the vice president as the Biden administration continues to falter.

According to the book, there initially was a united front between President Joe Biden and Harris, but that all started to come apart in June of 2021, following Harris’ trip to Central American countries that revolved around the growing migration crisis.

While she was there, Harris was criticized for comments she made to NBC News when she was asked by Lester Holt when she’d visit the U.S. southern border with Mexico.

Her response was quite sarcastic. She said:

“And I haven’t been to Europe. And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.”

That was only apparently the first crack in the united front. Since then, more cracks have formed, and a wide gap apparently now remains — one that many believe is the sole fault of Harris.
