President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden’s reportedly nasty response to Vice President Kamala Harris following a contentious 2019 Democrat presidential primary debate was just leaked in leaked a shocking new report released this week.
Edward-Isaac Dovere, a staff writer for The Atlantic, reported Jill Biden snarling after Harris’s shocking accusations of racism against her former primary opponent, “With what he cares about, what he fights for, what he’s committed to, you get up there and call him a racist without basis? Go f*** yourself.”
During the debate, then-candidate Biden responded to the accusation of racism by Harris.
“It’s a mischaracterization of my position across the board. I did not praise racists. That is not true, number one,” Biden answered.
“Number two, if we want to have this campaign litigated on who supports civil rights and whether I did or not, I’m happy to do that,” he added.
Despite racism criticisms by Harris, Biden pointed out his record of serving those of different backgrounds. Importantly, Biden served as vice president under the nation’s first African American President Barack Obama for eight years.
Despite the brief improvement in polls for Harris following the debate, her campaign lagged and soon ended prior to her selection as Biden’s running mate.
Harris now serves as the nation’s first female vice president and female vice president of color. However, her unique role has not come without strong tensions between the top two leaders in the White House.
