AMAC EXCLUSIVE

kamala harris and biden

As the gaffes, stumbles, misstatements, and downright bizarre incidents continue to pile up, Joe Biden’s ever-more obvious physical and cognitive decline has become a major issue this campaign season. But Biden’s biggest liability when it comes to his health might not even have anything to do with him – and everything to do with his hapless vice president, Kamala Harris.

As bad as Joe Biden’s poll numbers have been throughout his presidency, Harris’s have been even worse. According to the latest RealClearPolitics average, the vice president currently has just a 36.7 percent approval rating, with 57.7 percent of Americans saying they disapprove of her job performance. That’s just under three points worse than Biden’s approval rating at 39.5 percent.

While that’s bad news for Harris, it might be even worse news for Biden’s re-election bid.

Biden is 81 years old—and he’s not a “young” 81. He would be 82 by the time he would start a potential second term. Given his current condition, it is only reasonable to believe that Harris would assume the presidency at some point before Election Day 2028.

But as the country faces multiple foreign crises, a turbulent economy, persistent inflation, a border invasion, a drug epidemic, and a growing list of other calamities, it’s clear that the public has little confidence in Harris to live up to even the low standard Biden has set. This appears to be a major issue that Republicans could exploit this cycle as voters grow increasingly concerned about Biden’s fitness for office.

It’s easy to see why so few Americans have confidence in Harris. Throughout her time in office, she has proven herself to be just as gaffe-prone as her boss, all while completely failing to deliver on the few tasks assigned to her by the president.

Her most obvious failure is the ongoing border crisis. While blame for the millions of illegal aliens pouring into the country ultimately falls at the feet of Joe Biden, back in 2021 Biden tapped Harris as his “border czar” to spearhead the administration’s response to the crisis.

Instead of leading efforts to beef up border security or crack down on illegal drug trafficking, however, Harris traveled to Latin America to address the so-called “root causes” of illegal immigration. In practice, that meant pushing for more taxpayer-funded aid to foreign countries while her own country was being overrun.

Three years later, the only result of this strategy has been ever-increasing numbers of illegal border crossings along with a surge of fentanyl deaths and human trafficking.

Along with her policy failures, Harris has also racked up a list of embarrassing and painfully awkward moments as vice president.

The most recent such incident came in early May when Harris made a campaign stop at a restaurant in Detroit. When a reporter asked the vice president a question about the war in Gaza, she shouted back, “shrimp and grits!” before climbing into a waiting SUV. A video of the exchange quickly made the rounds on social media, generating mockery from the right and more outrage from the left over the administration’s approach to the war.

In another viral video from March, Harris can be seen smiling and clapping along as a left-wing activist chants a protest critical of the administration in Spanish. In comedic fashion, Harris’s face drops and she stops clapping as an aide translates the song for her.

There’s also the fact that Kamala Harris might be the worst public speaker to ever become president or vice president.

At the start of the Russia-Ukraine war, for instance, Harris was mocked for offering a ridiculously child-like explanation of the conflict. “So, Ukraine is a country in Europe,” Harris said at the time. “It exists next to another country called Russia,” she continued. “Russia is a bigger country. Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine. So, basically, that’s wrong, and it goes against everything that we stand for.”

Last July, in another head-scratching set of remarks, Harris again offered a painful definition, this time of AI. “I think the first part of this issue that should be articulated is AI is kind of a fancy thing,” Harris said. “First of all, it’s two letters. It means artificial intelligence.”

Public speaking – particularly to a national audience – is of course no easy task, but the American people expect their leaders to communicate clearly and effectively. Harris’s propensity to leave listeners both cringing and utterly confused gives voters good reason to be wary of the fact that she may one day be called upon to lead the country through a moment of crisis.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, rumors have swirled that Democrat leaders would like to replace Harris with a more effective candidate. But the deluge of negative headlines that would cause for Biden – along with inevitable outrage from Democrats’ left-wing base – likely means Biden is stuck with his original pick.

The silver lining for Biden is that the Harris conundrum might be the only reason he is being nominated for a second term at all. But while that might be a comfort to Biden, it should be terrifying to America.

The only thing I can comment on is how in the world can the Demos put up this duo again for the upcoming election unless the cheating aspect is already in place.

What an embarrassment for us and for our country that these 2 people have been elected to the highest offices in the world. If you consider their harmful policies and the missteps all along the way, they’d have been “eliminated” in any other country before the end of their term. “Word salad” is the perfect description for anything coming out of harris’ mouth.

If by some cosmic miracle they win again in 2024, I will assume they rigged the system once again. I can’t believe there are that many stupid Americans.

As an intelligent (?) nation, we will not–can not–tolerate another 4 years of this stumbling, fumbling, gaffe-prone duo. Usually between 2 people, one, at least, can think while the other can speak. But with biden and harris, neither can do either!

The thought of Harris being president is indeed “terrifying.” But she wouldn’t be running the show, it would be the same group that is propping up Joe.

“President” Biden is, and always has been, a 2-bit stooge of a politician. He has always tried to project the persona of a champion who fights against all odds, but, in truth, he is nothing but a loudmouth, a bully (whenever he thinks he can get away with that), and a liar.
His “parental” example is obviously what ruined his own son, and he has no cares about the damage he’s done during his term in office as “president”. He has shown many times that he has absolutely no scruples about causing public harm.

The only voters Biden/Harris will have must be people who want free stuff and know that democrats are their only source. We have a “republican” senator from Alaska who tries to play both sides. We have a democrat because Alaska a new voting system for rigging elections. This will not stand.

It saddens me to realize American voters put these two incompetent clowns into our highest offices, and those offices represent our United States..
IMO, anyone who votes for a politician based on skin color instead of policies, should lose their right to vote forever.

Even ole Joe running for re-election is a disaster for the country. Both shouldn’t be a candidate for re-election. They have driven America into the ground. Blinken has offered another 2 billion to the Ukraine. While more and more Americans can’t afford housing or food. Something disastrous is being planned around election time to get ole Joe elected. The debates will be another POTUS performance with ole Joe shouting and taking down the Maga supporters and calling Trump a Hitler. While he himself has made America a Nazi state. And ruled this country via executive orders and mandates and court cases which when he loses he ignores the verdict.

How can this woman even be considered for President! She is an embarrassment that has been useless? What has she done? Spoken at an abortion rally! So we know she is okay with killing babies. What about our enemy? What about fighting criminals? What about closing our border? Or will she just laugh those off and go on The View and talk about her candles? I in my almost 7 decades have never witnessed a more useless individual in such a position!

Our Commander-in-Chief tells more tales than Scheherazade while the VEEP cackles at everything she sees or hears! Anyone voting for this duo is dumber than they are. Rather than vacations at some beach, they both need to be sequestered in a kindergarten sandbox. Heaven help us if Congress ever invokes the 25th Amendment due to Joe’s obvious impairment(s) [physical & mental] and we end up with Kamala’s impairments instead [mental & judgmental].

The only way Biden-Harris wins the next election is through this cheating scam that the Biden Democrats have already begun with the weaponization of the justice system. I will remember Biden as the worst US President in my lifetime without question, the head of a Crime family. And Kamala….the way she clucks maybe she will retire to a life of homesteading and raising hens and chicks to cluck with. I am just so sick and tired of the foolishness surrounding these two and their squad. How did the United States of America reach this all-time low?

I have a better definition of who Harris is and her duties as VP are.
The United States has a President and a Vice President. The Vice president’s name is Kamala Harris, she’s a “woman”, she is from California, she’s biracial, she owns a gas stove, she was the former girlfriend of Willie Brown. Got it??? OK, enough said!

Kamala will go down as the worst VP in American history with zero accomplishments, few real supporters and the lowest poll numbers of any past VP.. BUT she doesn’t give a damn! She’s having the time of her life: flying on special planes, living in the VP house and being waited on hand and foot, traveling everywhere at taxpayer expense, appearing on TV with sickening sycophants like the Barrymore gal, playing at baking cookies, giggling up a storm while saying things no one can understand. She could care less that she has not done one thing for our country and has ignored all of her assignments such as “border czar.” She is meeting royalty and heads of state and enjoying her special occasions.Who cares, she thinks, I’m the first female VP, I’ll make the history books and I’m enjoying it all.

Biden is stuck with his original pick. Biden was not cognitive enough to make that pick and Harris is not cognitive enough to understand that.

VP Harris is the supreme failure of D.E.I. While trying to please everyone with his choice for VP, Joe Biden found out that choosing a black woman is not always the wise choice. Race and gender have no place in choosing the people that will run our country. I want the brightest and the best. If it is a woman, fine. Skin color makes no difference to me if the person is qualified. And Kamala has shown herself to be neither brightest nor the best VP.

It’s critically important that there is at least one Vice Presidential Debate this election. If Biden somehow manages to hold his own in his debate vs. President Trump, Harris’s performance could completely negate that. Let’s not forget she was the first candidate to drop out of the Democratic primaries in 2020. They wanted no part of her at that point in time….
