There are rumors President Joe Bide . Why else would he be ceding power to Vice President Kamala Harris?
The Biden administration has reportedly directed that official communications refer to the administration as the “Biden-Harris Administration,” The Washington Times reported. This breaks with every precedent set by the previous two administrations and thrusts Harris into unchartered waters.
In an email leaked to Outspoken, the White House officially moved to diminish Biden’s leadership position in its edict to include the vice president’s name. “Please be sure to reference the current administration as the ‘Biden-Harris Administration’ in official public communications,” the email said with the change in bold font.
The whistleblower wished to remain anonymous but was identified as an employee from a “‘bipartisan’ federal agency established by Congress to deal in foreign relations and is not affiliated with the State Department.” The news outlet confirmed that the change was seen across “all 15 executive departments” and that all of their websites now “exclusively refer to the Biden-Harris Administration, in lieu of only naming the president, which has been customary until now.”
The White House’s official Twitter page already reflects the new language. “Welcome to the Biden-Harris White House!” the description for the account reads. A recent tweet from the account confirmed the new moniker as well. “Big news: The Biden-Harris Administration set a new record this weekend with 6 million shots reported administered. We’re ramping up vaccination efforts every day to get America vaccinated quickly and equitably,” the account said Monday.

Some, including former President Donald Trump, speculated this change was in the works all along and that Biden was unfit to even run. Rumors have swirled about his cognitive impairment and his role as a placeholder until the more radical Harris can take over for him, and featuring Harris this way gives credence to that theory.
“The fact that the White House is instructing federal agencies to replace ‘Biden’ with ‘Biden-Harris’ after less than 60 days is indicative of the struggle Joe Biden is already having being President,” Richard Grenell, former acting director of national intelligence told the publication. “This is a signal that he can’t do the job alone.”
Leftists will no doubt spin this as a progressive move to include his female vice president as a co-leader. They will fawn over his willingness to share the spotlight and the job with a woman of color. However, the reality is that Biden is having trouble walking upstairs and remembering the people in his administration, making this appear more like a preemptive transfer of power.
