(PatrioticPost.com)- According to the authors of This Will Not Pass, a new book about the Biden administration in which New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns document the consensus among Democrats that Harris’s tenure as vice president has been a slow-rolling Greek tragedy.
In the words of a former Senate colleague, Vice President Kamala Harris has been taking political advice from MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.
Harris was as politically isolated as she had ever been by the end of President Joe Biden’s first year in office. Few Democrats had faith in her capacity to be the party’s standard-bearer in 2024 or beyond. Harris has been impatient with her aides as a consequence, blaming them for letting her down.
Harris said that she launched an audit of her office to help make it more efficient. It’s no surprise she has trouble maintaining employees.
The authors say that Harris began seeking advice from longstanding veterans of the Washington scene, like Rahm Emanuel, the Chicago mayor-turned-ambassador to Japan, and Joe Scarborough, the congressman-turned-MSNBC talking head…of hair.
Morning Joe anchor Joe Scarborough is most known for going out of his way to help Donald Trump get elected and then hypocritically proclaiming that history will be dark for Trump supporters’ children and grandkids. He is presently married to Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, whom former President Trump has referred to as “low I.Q. Crazy Mika.”
Harris, whose single highlight from her unsuccessful presidential campaign in 2020 was labeling Biden as a racist at a primary debate, was disliked by Biden and his team of advisers, according to the findings in This Will Not Pass. Harris was neither the candidate who most profoundly impressed Biden’s vice-presidential search committee nor the one his advisors considered as most instantly equipped for the presidency.
Since the election, that view hasn’t altered much. White House communications director Kate Bedingfield was among those who privately complained, according to Martin and Burns.
White House communications director Kate Bedingfield said that Harris had a longtime record of failure. Her Senate office was a disaster, and her presidential campaign was a disaster.
Perhaps the issue wasn’t with the vice president’s staff, Bedingfield argued.
