As far as the run-up to the 2020 Presidential race is concerned, there is only one real question remaining: Who will be on the ticket with presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
Biden, a former Vice President himself, has committed to choosing a female running mate, but that’s all that the general public knows about how the selection process is going. Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar has withdrawn herself from the running, citing her belief that a woman of color would be better suited for the moment.
At the top of this ever-narrowing list is Kamala Harris, a former prosecutor and Senator from California. Now, one writer at the New York Times believes that Harris will indeed be Biden’s running mate.
Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., will likely be presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick, New York Post columnist Miranda Devine said on Tuesday.
“I think the interesting thing about Kamala Harris, though, is the fact that she’s coming out to showcase her ways just as she’s becoming the favorite as the vice president pick for Joe Biden,” Devine told “Fox & Friends,” pointing to an event Harris has scheduled with DJs to support Biden’s candidacy.
“As you see with this DJ promotion that she’s doing, she’s trying to inject some cool into the campaign and she is, after all, a good friend of President [Barack] Obama and he’ll be the sort of silent force behind the throne of Joe Biden.”
This is likely to be a disastrous choice for Biden, as Harris’ long record as a prosecutor is sure to be excoriated by liberals looking for police reform.
Furthermore, Harris had one of the most despicable gaffes of the entire 2020 race when she herself was a candidate, claiming that she would “smoke marijuana” and listen to Tupac Shakur records in college. It took only minutes for astute social media users to discover that Harris had not been in college at a time in which Shakur had released any music, exposing the lie as an attempt to distance Harris from her brutal record of jailing nonviolent drug offenders.
