The “powerful couple” in charge of the White House isn’t functioning properly, according to insider details.
They both experienced tragic overseas business trips, but Kamala went worse with the press, who is, normally, “petting” Joe Biden.
According to the latest Axios report,
“Vice President Kamala Harris’s stumbles during her first foreign trip have rekindled the debate from her presidential campaign about whether she — and not her staff — is to blame.
While Harris’ only overture toward running for president in 2024 has been a trip to New Hampshire in April, the vice president is in a prime position to cast herself as the best choice for Democrats should President Biden not seek a second term.
Such international trips and her leadership of the migration and jobs portfolios given to her by Biden will collectively let her showcase herself for the No. 1 slot in a future election.
The White House didn’t offer comment but aides noted that Harris has done numerous interviews without problems and the exchange during her trip last week came after repeated questions on the same topic.
One factor that led Harris to become the first major Democrat to exit the 2020 race — despite a massive announcement rally — was that she surrounded herself with a staff who didn’t always serve her well.
Now, as vice president, she has the latitude and stature to tap some of the country’s best talent to work on her team.
Her trip to Guatemala and Mexico still garnered a flurry of negative headlines.”
The report continues further with details from a White House insider.
“Most prominently, Harris stumbled on an easily anticipated question about the border during an interview with NBC News anchor Lester Holt, growing defensive. Even follow-ups with other reporters didn’t go much better.
The vice president can be notoriously difficult to prep, multiple former aides told Axios.
The piece goes on to say that Harris also is in a tough spot managing two issues — immigration and voting rights, the latter of which she’s reported to have chosen herself — that have little upside and huge downside.
Such difficult assignments have historically fallen to a vice president, to keep the president in a positive light.
And while her office insists that Harris has been tasked with diplomacy toward the Northern Triangle countries in Central America and not the border crisis specifically, they’re having difficulty getting traction for that message within the public.
“If you give someone a sh***ty assignment because the president doesn’t want to do it himself, you can’t be mad when the treacherous situation looks treacherous,” said one former aide afterword of internal White House criticism toward Harris.”
