President-elect Joe Biden has always been something of a gaffe machine around Washington, D.C., but his latest verbal blunder accidentally revealed what everyone has known all along: He’s simply a placeholder for his radical leftist running mate.
In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper Thursday, Biden accidentally said the quiet part out loud when speaking about how he would resolve differences with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. In a stunning moment of candor, Biden told the host, “if I reach something where there’s a fundamental disagreement we have based on a moral principle, I’ll develop some disease and say I have to resign.”
Harris herself has uttered similar misstatements that revealed how she viewed her position as second in command. While campaigning in September, Harris said on a call with Latina small business owners in Arizona that “a Harris administration together with Joe Biden” would deliver lots of goodies to their community, AZ Central reported.

During the runup to the 2020 presidential election, there were concerns that Biden, who was 77 at the time, was suffering from dementia. However, the mainstream media had no real interest in probing the candidate on that issue — or anything else for that matter.
Instead, the media continued to ignore the signs that Biden was unfit for office because he was a convenient candidate to usher in a leftist agenda they supported. President Donald Trump’s campaign got it right, calling Harris “proof that Joe Biden is an empty shell being filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left,” Fox News reported.
In a rare instance he was challenged about his mental fitness, Biden lashed out at the news correspondent who dared to ask. When CBS News’ Errol Barnett asked Biden whether he’d taken a cognitive test, he chided the host saying “That’s like saying … before you got on this program, you’re taking a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?” That statement alone — to a black man — would have landed any other candidate in hot water.
Even as Election Day loomed, Biden would routinely call a lid on his campaign for days at a time without explanation, and the media would simply leave him alone. It was almost as if he was irrelevant because their real objective was to get Harris into the White House.
Recently, Biden fractured his foot while playing with his dogs, leaving the president-elect to mill around in a boot. If Harris just has to wait for Biden to develop a serious illness or some other excuse to step down, it seems like only a matter of time.
