From all outward appearances, President Joe Biden and his Vice President Kamala Harris are a good team.
But if you know anything about politicians, you know they’ll put on whatever façade will garner them the most support.
And you won’t believe what Joe Biden said about Kamala Harris that has everyone going nuts.
In 2019, during the first Democratic Presidential Debate, Harris skyrocketed to stardom when she ripped into Joe Biden about working with segregationist Senators, and Biden made an off-air comment that would follow him for the next few months of the campaign.
Harris’ tone was clear and led many to believe she was calling Biden a racist though she has repeatedly denied that claim.
The now Vice President stated:
“I’m going to now direct this at Vice President Biden: I do not believe you are a racist, and I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground,” Harris declared. “But I also believe, and it’s personal — it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States Senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country. And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing. And, you know, there was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day. And that little girl was me.”
Joe Biden was shocked by Harris’ comment and clearly caught off guard.
During a commercial break, Biden offered his response to then South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, “Well, that was some f**king bulls**t.”
That comment catapulted Harris to the top of the polls, but unfortunately for her, it only lasted a little while.
Harris never followed through with the attack, and in fact, seemed to somewhat walk her comments back.
She also continued to shift her position on taxes and a government takeover of healthcare, which left many to believe she was just saying things to gain votes and had no solid platform of her own.
The now VP’s popularity in the polls tanked just as quickly as it had risen.
Many wonder why Biden would pick a VP who called him a racist, but many also wonder if Biden really had any say in who his Vice President would be.
Given Biden’s clearly fragile mental state, he likely didn’t get to pick his running mate – rather, Harris was chosen for him.
