First Lady Jill Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have found themselves at the center of shocking allegations in the newly released book, “Amateur Hour: Kamala Harris in the White House.” Authored by Washington journalist Charlie Spiering, this book dives deep into the strained relationship between the two prominent figures. The tension is said to stem from Harris’ refusal to be a team player, a quality not conducive to a harmonious working environment.
Spiering reveals that controversy surrounding Harris began as early as 2020 when President Joe Biden was still a candidate. While Biden initially wanted to choose Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer or former Ambassador Susan Wife as his running mate, former President Barack Obama pushed for Harris due to her race. This decision has caused significant trouble for the Biden camp ever since.
Even though Joe Biden promised to select a woman as his running mate in 2020 and revealed his short list for VP featured four black women, many were still surprised when Kamala Harris was revealed to be his choice…https://t.co/dM5woVCZyE

One of the areas where Harris has faced immense criticism is her handling of the border crisis. Tasked with addressing this pressing issue, Harris has been labeled a massive failure. Since she took charge, illegal migration has skyrocketed, leaving the United States grappling with a record wave of illegal immigrants. It is clear that her approach has been ineffective, leading to frustration within the White House.
Harris’ awkward public appearances have also become a cause for concern. Many describe them as filled with confusion, “word salads,” and a curious cackle. Her inability to communicate effectively has sparked doubts about her capability to lead, even within the Democratic Party. These concerns have influenced President Biden’s decision to run for another term despite his advanced age. It appears he lacks confidence in Harris’ ability to run a successful presidential campaign.
Furthermore, Spiering sheds light on Harris’ alleged impatience and disdain for President Biden. Despite reading from the teleprompter with seemingly heartfelt platitudes, it is said that she barely suppresses her true feelings. Not only does this lack of respect foster a crisis-of-confidence within the Democratic Party, but it also reveals Harris’ true character and suitability for such a significant role in the administration.
To make matters worse, Harris has a reputation for going on profanity-laden rants, often leaving staff members devastated. Her soul-destroying tirades create a toxic work environment, causing further damage to her credibility. Even First Lady Jill Biden reportedly distrusts Harris and chooses to avoid her company whenever possible. This lack of trust says a lot about the dynamics within the administration and the unsettling tension that exists.
It is disheartening to see such discord between two of the highest-ranking officials in our government. The revelations in Spiering’s book serve as a stark reminder of Harris’ inadequacy and the detrimental impact it has on the Biden administration. It is crucial that our leaders work together cohesively, but Harris’ refusal to be a team player only hinders progress. Americans deserve better than this dysfunctional relationship at the helm of our government.
