A NEW book claims the strong working relationship between President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris may not be what it seems.
In This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future, authors Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns also detail the alleged tensions between Harris and First Lady Jill Biden.
Other claims from the book include that Biden’s communications director, Kate Bedingfield, shot Harris and her political career.
However, by email to PoliticoBedingfield blasted the book: “The fact that no one working on this book bothered to call to fact check this unattributed claim tells you what you need from you,” she wrote.
Bedingfield called Harris a “force in this administration” and said, “I have the utmost respect for the work she does every day to move the country forward.”
The authors said Harris didn’t want to work solely on issues related to women and Black Americans. But in her attempts to pave the way for voting rights, she appeared to be at a loss at the president’s reluctance to undertake serious Senate reform.
According to the book, which is set for release on May 3, 2022, there is some drama arising from the alleged feud between the first lady Jill Biden and the vice president.
Jill was reportedly not a fan of her husband’s choice to choose Harris as his running mate, reportedly asking, “There are millions of people in the United States. Why… do we have to choose whoever attacked Joe?”
Harris reportedly got on the bad side of the first lady after the first Democratic Presidential Debate. Harris and Biden got into a heated exchange in which Harris called out on him for working with segregationists.
“I don’t think you’re racist,” Harris told the former vice president of his opposition to state-mandated bus travel.
“But I also believe, and it’s personal — it was hurtful to hear you speak about the reputation of two US senators who have built their reputations and careers on segregation in this country.”
She was later confronted with the remark, hugging Harris on camera saying, “That was two years ago. We made progress from that.”
However, people on social media have speculated that Jill didn’t actually “move on” from those comments.
The first lady’s spokesman, Michael LaRosa, issued a statement about the alleged past feud, saying, “Many books will be written about the 2020 campaign, with countless retellings of events — some accurate, some inaccurate. The First Lady and her team have no intention of commenting on any of them.”
