Harris Hides While Biden Bumbles

Our nation’s first female vice president seems really reluctant to lend her boss a helping hand.

“They will not pin this s—t on me!” she screamed.

At least that’s what an unnamed White House source said Kamala Harris screamed, after she was reportedly asked to give an update on the Biden-caused disaster in Afghanistan.

Looks like Slow Joe’s on his own, at least insofar as Afghanistan is concerned.

And, come to think of it, Harris has been all but invisible of late. Perhaps she’s waiting for just the right time to reintroduce herself to the American people.

We know what you’re thinking: If she’s waiting for an administration success story, she might be cooling her heels for a long time. And if Joe Biden’s cratering approval rating is any indication, Harris will have a hard time not being tarred by the same brush as her boss.

Perhaps if they could just arrange a trip for Harris, perhaps give her a chance to go overseas for some feel-good glad-handing. Perhaps she could head to, oh, Vietnam, for example, to help folks forget about the administration’s foreign policy fecklessness and its unfolding disaster in Saigon Kabul.

Uh, never mind.

Incidentally, when we hear about Harris hurling expletives, or Barack Obama, for that matter, we wonder why the press pays so little attention to it. After all, they headed for the fainting couches when Donald Trump allegedly said something about sending American taxpayer dollars to certain “s—thole countries.” (Recall what Obama reportedly said to an unnamed fellow Democrat about his then-vice president’s presidential ambitions: “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f— things up.”)

Leftist potty-mouths and media double standards aside, some of the most powerful women in Washington are swarming behind the scenes to protect one of their own, especially as it concerns the recent heat Harris has taken about her lack of likability and the hostile work environment under her. Among this secret Praetorian Guard for our nation’s worst-ever female vice president are former Bernie Sanders Press Secretary Symone Sanders; longtime Democrat hack and 2016 campaign cheater Donna Brazile; former Obama Deputy Campaign Manager Stephanie Cutter; and former Obama Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri. In addition, the group includes Harris’s current chief of staff, Tina Flournoy, but we’re not sure whether she’s doing more harm than good, given that she too has a reputation as a kick-down boss.

Given the train wreck that is the current administration, however, these Friends of Kamala have their work cut out for them. As we noted recently, the more the American people see of Harris, the less they like her. Indeed, she launched her run for the presidency in 2019 before 22,000 adoring Oaklanders, and it’s been downhill ever since.

Remember how long it took Biden to announce her as his running mate, even though she checked off all the demographic boxes and had far more impressive career credentials than any other candidate? That should’ve tipped us off.

It seems like a long time ago when Harris was proudly crowing to her friends on CNN that she was “the last person in the room” with Biden when he decided to end our nation’s involvement in Afghanistan.

No wonder she’s keeping such a low profile.

UPDATE: Harris’s popularity continues to slide, as this new Rasmussen poll indicates. Fifty-five percent of Americans feel she’s not qualified for the presidency, while only 43% think she is.
