Kamala Harris ready to take over for Joe Biden according to bombshell interview

We knew Biden was in dire straits. But his decline has been a complete free-fall.

And now Kamala Harris is ready to take over for Joe Biden according to a bombshell interview.

In a recent interview published this week, Vice President Kamala Harris stated that as doubts emerge about President Joe Biden’s capacity to continue serving as commander-in-chief due to concerns about his mental competence, she is prepared to step up and be president.

The remarks from Harris come after Special Counsel Robert Hur concluded in his criminal investigation into Biden’s handling of classified material that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials,” but no criminal charges were warranted.

It later added that prosecutors “also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury…as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

According to the study, Biden was unable to recall basic facts about important events in his life, including his time as vice president in the Obama administration, and he was unable to recall within a few years when his son died, despite the fact that he frequently discussed his son’s passing.

Biden then convened a news conference to establish his mental fitness for president, during which he yelled at reporters and forgot some important information.

The report and subsequent press conference sounded alarms among prominent Democrats who are privately worried about Biden’s electability, as a recent poll indicated that 86% of Americans believe he is too old to be president again, and 76% are concerned about his mental capacity.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Harris was asked if voters’ concerns about Biden’s age and mental competence meant she needed to persuade them that she was prepared to take over.

“I am ready to serve. There’s no question about that,” Harris responded.

She asserted that everyone who sees her at work “walks away fully aware of my capacity to lead.”

Jennifer Palmieri, who worked in the Obama and Clinton administrations, as well as Hillary Clinton’s unsuccessful 2016 campaign, told the Journal that Hur’s report has highlighted Harris’ ability to serve, as she may be required sooner rather than later.

“There was always going to be a lot of scrutiny and pressure on her in the 2024 campaign, and that moment’s here now,” she said.

“I think that the special counsel’s report has sort of accelerated that moment.”

According to a recent Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, if Biden decides not to run again, Harris will be the top pick among Democrat voters, with 15%.

Following Harris, 8% voted for Hillary Clinton, 7% for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), 7% for Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), 5% for California Governor Gavin Newsom, and so on.

Last year, an NBC News poll found Harris to be the lowest-rated vice president in the survey’s history, with a score of -17.

Other vice presidents who received ratings included Dick Cheney (+23), Al Gore (+15), Biden (+1), and Pence (-4).
