A new book by New York Times contributors Alex Burns and Jonathan Martin entitled This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden and the Battle for America’s Future, reveals First Lady Dr. Jill Biden didn’t want Kamala Harris selected for Joe Biden’s Vice President.
“First lady Jill Biden reportedly made it clear early on that she was not happy to welcome Harris to her husband’s ticket. According to Burns and Martin, she referenced Harris’ debate-stage attempt to paint then candidate Joe Biden as a racist — citing his friendships with known segregationists and his opposition to busing — and she wondered to an adviser whether there wasn’t a better choice among the millions of other Americans who might be available,” the Daily Wire reports.
“Speaking in confidence with a close adviser to her husband’s campaign, the future first lady posed a pointed question. There are millions of people in the United States, she began. Why, she asked, do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe?”

First Lady spokesman Michael LaRosa says she has no plans to comment on the book. “Many books will be written on the 2020 campaign, with countless retellings of events — some accurate, some inaccurate. The first lady and her team do not plan to comment on any of them,” he said.
Kamala Harris’ approval numbers are in the toilet; half the country has an unfavorable opinion of the Veep.
