Kamala Harris, who was recently cited by the far-left Washington Post as lacking “the force, charisma, and skill,” continues to face attacks from within her own Democrat Party.
After the Post cited several sources close to the Biden White House suggesting they needed to get rid of Kamala sooner rather than later based on her failed tenure as vice president – and amid looming concerns she might sink the 2024 ticket – now Hillary Clinton has reportedly entered the fray and voice dissatisfaction wothj the upwardly-failing Harris.
Fox News reacted to a bombshell New York Times story that described Harris as decidedly not a “formidable leader.” Fox wrote:
The piece said two Democrats recalled Clinton privately dismissing Harris’ chances of clearing a presidential primary field because she lacked the necessary “political instincts.”
“Two Democrats recalled private conversations in which former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lamented that Ms. Harris could not win because she does not have the political instincts to clear a primary field,” the Times reported.
The Clinton camp did respond to the allegations by mentioning she and Harris had a “strong bond,” but they did not refute the story outright. Whatever the case, it’s clearly not good for your left-wing brand if the kingmaking Washington Post and New York Times are throwing you under the bus.
The American Tribune previously covered the Washington Post story. We wrote:
In an earlier article titled “Some Democrats are worried about Harris’s political prospects,” Washington Post writer Cleve R. Wootson Jr. summarized the thoughts of “more than a dozen Democratic leaders in key states,” also adding that these sources expressed concerns about any viable political future available to Harris after her abysmal stint as vice president.
“Harris’s tenure has been underwhelming, they said, marked by struggles as a communicator and at times near-invisibility, leaving many rank-and-file Democrats unpersuaded that she has the force, charisma, and skill to mount a winning presidential campaign,” Wootson wrote.
Elizabeth Warren, another feminist Democrat, also had no problem throwing the female Harris to the scrap heap of political aspirations.
“I really want to defer to what makes Biden comfortable on his team,” Warren said. “I’ve known Kamala for a long time. I like Kamala. I knew her back when she was an attorney general and I was still teaching and we worked on the housing crisis together, so we go way back. But they need — they have to be a team, and my sense is they are — I don’t mean that by suggesting I think there are any problems. I think they are.”
And as the American Tribune said, it isn’t just political insiders that are tiring of the weak, inarticulate, uncharismatic vice president.
“People are poised to pounce on anything — any misstep, any gaffe, anything she says — and so she’s probably not getting the benefit of the doubt,” said former Cobb County Democrats Chair Jacquelyn Bettadapur, a Harris supporter. She added, “It doesn’t help that she’s not [that] adept as a communicator.”
Tucker Carlson even opined that the effort to remove Harris, Biden, or both could very likely result in a return of Michelle Obama to the national political scene. Speaking about how her former president husband Barack is doing what he does best in agitating American race relations, he also said that Michelle is strongly craving more attention.
“His wife who’s never had a real job and apparently is feeling kind of restless, approaching 60. And that’s why you may have noticed that six years after leaving Washington, Michelle Obama is back in the news. She’s got a new book and a media tour and even a federally funded hiking trail named for herself in Atlanta,” Carlson said during a recent monologue.
“Why has she emerged in this way? Well, there might be a reason. In fact, if you didn’t know any better, if you were visiting this country from a foreign land trying to figure out what’s going on in the U.S., you might mistake what Michelle Obama is doing right now for the beginnings of a presidential campaign,” he concluded.
