Where’s Kamala Harris? Well, not at the US-Mexico border, but then, neither is Biden. But, Kamala Harris is also not at the President’s Daily Briefings (PDBs). She’s attended only 69 of the 276 PDBs since Biden’s installation as POTUS, almost half of them in the 1st 3 months of the administration. Strange for Vice President who was included in such meetings because the Vice Presidency was “supposed” to be her training for taking over the Presidency.
Normally, this would even begin to be an issue. VPs don’t even normally attend the PDBs. But Biden handlers made sure that he made a point of having her attend and saying that she was ready to lead on day one. Indeed, they seemed to go to great lengths to present Biden and Harris – or was it Harris and Biden – as something akin to Co-Presidents rather than the chief and subordinate. That being the case, it is a problem that she’s not being briefed and seemingly doesn’t want to be.
And, when one considers that Biden has repeatedly referred to Harris as first the President-Elect, then the President, and has “stumbled” and said that she’d be POTUS soon, the situation becomes even more disturbing. This is, after all, exactly what President Trump warned the world about and what Americans fear. Her not being ready to replace the aged and mentally infirm Biden just makes that fear more visceral.
Of course, this is Biden we’re talking about, the man who is the past master of gaffes and who can’t string many consecutive sentences together in a functional manner. So, things may not be as they seem. Then again, that is exactly why things might be exactly as they seem, but without pre-planning or conscious involvement on Biden’s part. 🙄
Is Kamala Where She’s Supposed To Be?
One thing to consider and to take into account as one plans for the future is that Kamala Harris isn’t “missing;” she’s exactly where those who are running Biden’s administration want her to be, whether she likes it or is even cognizant of it at all.
Biden is a menace due to his mental incompetence and it would be natural for their administration’s handlers and overseers to distance Harris from him as much as possible and to place her in non-controversial roles that keep her well away from Creepy Uncle Joe and his blunders. That way, she would be less stained from the association when she was tapped to replace him as POTUS, either due to Biden’s stepping down, being removed via the 25th Amendment, dying, or just not running for a 2nd term in office, which seems the most likely to me, though that could change based upon Harris’ approval ratings.
Or, it could just be that Kamala Harris is an entitled, petulant, power-seeking abomination that the Democrats have quickly learned was a mistake and they’re keeping her away from Biden and the spotlight for that reason.
So, the first question is where’s Kamala, but the second has to be why is she there instead of where she was “planned” to be.
