New White House ‘Tell All’ Reveals Trouble Brewing Between Biden And Harris

As the Biden administration faces the wild swings of rising gas and food prices, general inflation, conflict abroad, and poor poll numbers for both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, a new book due out in May claims to shed light on some of trouble brewing behind the scenes.

The book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” is coauthored by two New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns.

Strain Between President and VP

The book dishes the inside scoop on how Kamala Harris’ team, throughout the first year of Joe Biden’s presidency, was upset about the areas of responsibility she was tasked with.

An excerpt reveals that Biden communications director Kate Bedingfield blamed Harris for her own horrendous first year in office – and that it maybe shouldn’t have been a surprise: “In private, Bedingfield had taken to noting that the vice presidency was not the first time in Harris’s political career that she had fallen short of sky-high expectations: Her Senate office had been messy and her presidential campaign had been a fiasco. Perhaps, she suggested, the problem was not the vice president’s staff.”

Bedingfield gave a non-denial denial of the claim in a response to Politico, saying: “The fact that no one working on this book bothered to call to fact check this unattributed claim tells you what you need to know. Vice President Harris is a force in this administration and I have the utmost respect for the work she does every day to move the country forward.”

Another bit in the book reveals that Harris and Biden’s weekly lunches “lacked a real depth of personal and political intimacy.”

Others Were Not On Board With Harris As VP Pick

The new book also gives details about how First Lady Jill Biden was less than happy with the VP pick of Kamala Harris. An excerpt from the book states,

“Speaking in confidence with a close adviser to her husband’s campaign, the future first lady posed a pointed question. There are millions of people in the United States, she began. Why, she asked, do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe?”

The First Lady, already no fan of Kamala Harris, was referencing a presidential debate where then-candidate Harris attacked candidate Biden for racist busing views in the past. 

In the debate, Harris said, “It was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States Senators who built their reputations and careers on the segregation of race in this country. It was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose bussing. Do you agree today that you were wrong to oppose bussing in America?”

The Revolving Door Of The VP’s Office

The turnover rate among Kamala Harris’ staff seems to be unusually high, even for high pressure White House jobs. The latest in a long line of staffers to go is deputy press secretary Sabrina Singh, to take a position at the Defense Department.

The problem is not a new one. Back in December, as many as four staff members in Harris’ office announced they were leaving at the same time. This followed a CNN report on troubles then in the VP’s office.

The atmosphere in Harris’ office was described as “tense” and “dour.” Some staff described situations where ideas might be brought up but were either dismissed or ignored. Many said that Harris does not take responsibility for important issues and blames staff when problems arise.
