Bill Maher says Biden could win if he replaces Harris with either Haley or Romney

In an effort to mend partisan divisions, Bill Maher has recommended that President Joe Biden replace his current vice president, Kamala Harris, with either Republican Senator Mitt Romney or former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

According to Maher, should Biden pursue this unorthodox notion, the Democrats would most likely win the election because the Republican candidates would be running on a unity ticket, according to The Daily Mail.

"I know it's crazy to think that she could run with Biden, but that's my dream, a unity ticket. And then he would, I think, definitely win," Maher suggested.

Panel Response

During a panel discussion on HBO's Real Time, Maher conceded that the scenario was improbable, given that Harris was virtually certain to be Biden's running mate.

Maher acknowledged Haley's contentious and "irrational" remarks, including her claim that the United States has "never been a racist country."

"Of course, she's said some crazy things. Most politicians have- not as crazy as "We've never been a racist country." I mean, that's pretty crazy," Maher said.

Other Possibilities

Haley is another woman of color, Maher noted in response to concerns regarding the removal of Harris, the first African American vice president, from the Democratic nomination.

During the panel discussion, journalist Tara Palmeri expressed apprehensions regarding the possibility of estranging black women, who constitute a vital component of the Democratic party.

"You would literally destroy the Democratic base. Take off the first African American Vice President off the ticket?" Palmeri asked.

"She's a woman of color," Maher replied — referring to Haley.

"But black women are the core of the Democratic party," Palmeri pushed back.

Public Downturn for Harris

After a sequence of political blunders and embarrassing instances throughout her inaugural term, the vice president has encountered ongoing challenges in establishing her competence.

In fact, Harris' approval ratings are even lower than those of Biden, according to a recent NBC News poll which placed her at 28%. Substantially absolving herself of accountability for the border crises and underlying factors driving migration, she has opted to attribute the inability to enact immigration reform to Congress.

Harris's awkward "word salad" speeches, which frequently spiral out of control and are encumbered with a multitude of dependent clauses, also garner her regular ridicule.

Maher postulated that Senator Mitt Romney of Utah could potentially be an additional candidate who endeavors to cultivate a more inclusive political climate.

"Something to reach across so that we don't live in this world where everybody sees the other side as an existential threat," Maher said.
