Since taking office there has been dissension between the two executive offices at the White House.
To start Jill Biden never wanted Kamala to be part of the ticket.
“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?” the soon to be first lady asked according to a new book called “This Will Not Pass.”
Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain told Jill to suck it up because Kamala checked all the right boxes and that it would increase Joe’s electability.
Despite claiming they’ve buried the hatchet the infighting has only gotten worse.
NYT: Kamala Harris has become “fixated on…snubs” from Biden’s staff — even demanding Biden staffers “stand when she enters the room.”
The new upcoming book also highlights a moment that even shocked Republican lawmakers.
During a meeting in the fall of 2021 Biden was with Senate leaders from both parties and the Vice President. The president was desperate to pass anything in an attempt to bring up his souring approval numbers. The Build Back Better bill was pretty much dead and the only thing left was Joe’s infrastructure bill. During negotiations (which were on the rocks) Harris jumped in and wanted more social spending which was way above what Republicans had already told the president they would agree to. According to the book Joe became so angry at Harris that he snapped at her so harshly that Republican Senators were shocked.
She ‘began to make the case for a larger package than the one Republicans seemed to have in mind.’
‘Biden dismissed her comment immediately,’ the authors wrote, in so harsh a tone ‘that even the Republican senators were taken aback.’
Maybe the reason why Kamala acts like a ditz is that she accepted the inevitable. It was reported that a Senator close to her said that her political career has now turned into a “Greek tragedy.”
The friend isn’t wrong, by the time the Biden administration is over (if there’s anything left of America) anyone who held an executive position will never work in politics again.
