For months, there have been rumors and speculation about why Vice President Kamala Harris has been mysteriously missing in action. She was put in charge of the Southern border but never physically visited. President Joe Biden also asked for her assistance with getting Americans vaccinated. But again, there hasn’t been much seen of Harris until she jetted off to Europe last week. While some might claim it is traits of lousy leadership, according to an explosive piece by CNN, there is a reason Harris and Biden aren’t seen together.
It should be noted that before CNN changed their entire front page to team Biden as their article suggested there is trouble between Harris and Biden, former OANN reporter and current editor over at Human Events, Jack Posobiec had been speaking on this very matter for months. And when CNN dropped the news, Posobiec was there, tweeting the article, which was titled, “Harris struggles with her relationship with Biden.”

As for the piece written by CNN suggests that the Biden administration doesn’t have time to deal with the Vice President and her ambitions for the future. The article even states that the Biden administration views Harris wanting to run as President in the future and “disloyal.”
While just an excerpt, here is what CNN wrote:
Worn out by what they see as entrenched dysfunction and lack of focus, key West Wing aides have largely thrown up their hands at Vice President Kamala Harris and her staff — deciding there simply isn’t time to deal with them right now, especially at a moment when President Joe Biden faces quickly multiplying legislative and political concerns.
The exasperation runs both ways. Interviews with nearly three dozen former and current Harris aides, administration officials, Democratic operatives, donors, and outside advisers — who spoke extensively to CNN — reveal a complex reality inside the White House. Many in the vice president’s circle fume that she’s not being adequately prepared or positioned and instead is being sidelined. The vice president herself has told several confidants she feels constrained in what she’s able to do politically. And those around her remain wary of even hinting at future political ambitions, with Biden’s team highly attuned to signs of disloyalty, particularly from the vice president.
…And though Harris has told confidants that she has been enjoying a good working dynamic directly with Biden, those who work for them describe their relationship in terms of settling into an exhausted stalemate.
Suspicion has sprouted out of the bitterness. Last month, White House aides leapt to the defense of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who was being hammered with outrage by Fox News host Tucker Carlson and like-minded online pundits for taking paternity leave after the adoption of his twins in September. Harris loyalists tell CNN they see in that yet another example of an unfair standard at play, wondering why she didn’t get similar cover any of the times she’s been attacked by the right.
“It’s hard to miss the specific energy that the White House brings to defend a White man, knowing that Kamala Harris has spent almost a year taking a lot of the hits that the West Wing didn’t want to take themselves,” said a former Harris aide, reflecting conversations last month among several former aides and current allies.
Even with the liberal outlet CNN clearly picking sides inside the White House, it shows just why President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been so distant these last few months. It wasn’t even a year ago that Harris called Biden, congratulating them on their victory. Now, it appears neither speak.
Already seeing the potential repercussions of the article, White House Press Secretary quickly went on damage control as she tweeted, “For anyone who needs to hear it. @VP is not only a vital partner to @POTUS but a bold leader who has taken on key, important challenges facing the country—from voting rights to addressing root causes of migration to expanding broadband.”

But even with Psaki claiming all is well in the White House, the article by CNN does give a perfect explanation behind the coldness between the President and VP.
