The Biden administration is surrounded by chaos.
Joe Biden needs Democrats in Congress – including his Vice President as Senate tie breaker – to help turn things around by passing his legislative agenda.
But Kamala Harris hopped on a plane and bailed on Joe Biden when he needed her the most.
After Democrats failed to muster the votes to pass nearly five trillion dollars in new spending for their socialism bills, Joe Biden’s domestic agenda sits on the verge of collapse.
One of the reasons Biden’s agenda is on the brink of failure is his distance from the negotiations in Congress.
When he went to Capitol Hill last Friday to lobby Senate and House members it was a disaster.
Biden hasn’t received much assistance from Vice President Kamala Harris and she clearly saw the writing on the wall that Biden would fail on his arm-twisting and vote-buying mission.
In fact, it appears Kamala Harris wanted geographical distance from Biden’s stumbling around in halls of Congress.
And in the middle of his negotiations with members of Congress, Harris abandoned Joe Biden for a mysterious one-day trip to Palm Springs on Friday.
Of course she didn’t want it reported that she abandoned Biden for the one-day trip, so journalists weren’t allowed to film her plane taking off from Joint Andrews Air Force Base.
And the administration refused to provide a reason for her sudden departure.
The Desert Sun reported:
Vice President Kamala Harris arrived at Palm Springs International Airport shortly after 7 p.m. Friday, though a White House spokesperson was mum on reasons for the non-public visit…
…Harris, who recently campaigned for Gov. Gavin Newsom in the Bay Area ahead of the state’s Sept. 14 recall election, appears unlikely to meet with local Democrats during her visit. Elle Kurpiewski, political director of the Democratic Headquarters of the Desert, said nobody she knows was aware of the vice president’s scheduled visit.
After spending four years as the Senator from California before she became Vice President, Kamala Harris should have personal and working relationships with members of the Democratic caucus.
But so far she hasn’t used these past connections to help Biden muster up the votes needed to pass his agenda.
Instead, she fled the scene when she was needed the most.
During a legislative push that could determine the fate of the Democrat Party in the 2022 and 2024 elections, Kamala Harris fleeing Washington, D.C. is yet another odd data point in a series of bizarre White House actions.
