Kamala Harris just let every Democrat know that she is preparing to replace Joe Biden
Joe Biden’s approval ratings tanked, and Democrats are nervous about 2024.
That has some party leaders looking at the bench of candidates.
And Kamala Harris just let every Democrat know that she is preparing to replace Joe Biden.
Vice President Kamala Harris’ operation since taking office has been a disaster.
Harris completely failed in her role as border czar to stem the flow of illegal aliens flooding the country.
Multiple reports leaked in the media that Harris oversees a toxic work environment.
And polling data shows Harris is the least popular Vice President in the last 50 years.
Democrats understandably grew nervous about Harris’ prospects to replace Joe Biden as the Democrats’ nominee in 2024 to take on Donald Trump if he runs.
To that end, Harris tried to shore up support with the Democrat Party elites and the professional class by bringing on two veteran aides to assist with “long-term planning.”
The Washington Examiner reports:
Vice President Kamala Harris has hired two veteran communications aides to help finesse messaging and long-term planning after a rocky first nine months in office for the second-in-command.
Lorraine Voles, a crisis communications expert, and Adam Frankel, a former Obama speechwriter, worked for Harris during the presidential transition and have extensive experience crafting messages from the White House and the corporate world.
Voles and Frankel “offered to be of assistance” to Harris and will focus on “organizational development, strategic communications, and long-term planning,” a White House official told the Washington Examiner. Both are on temporary assignment, though the White House declined to provide a more specific time frame.
Frankel is the brother-in-law of White House press secretary Jen Psaki.
Some are speculating that Psaki had a hand in getting Frankel on board with Harris’s team to set herself up for Biden’s looming departure.
That is likely given the growing concerns with Biden’s tenure in the Oval Office.
Nevertheless, Harris putting Voles and Frankel on her team sends a clear signal.
And Harris may be able to calm nerves in the Democrat Party about her ability to put a competent team together.
But the real worries with Harris – as her disastrous tenure as border czar and failed 2020 Presidential campaign show – is that she is a political incompetent with horrendous instincts.
