Joe Biden has been a bumbling, fumbling mess out on the campaign trail as of late, (both in literal and virtual events), so perhaps it is no surprise that his announcement of a running mate for the 2020 election would also be spoiled by his own ineptitude.
Biden’s running mate is the last great mystery of the 2020 election, with the former veep stating only that he’ll be choosing a female and that his announcement will be coming next week.
One intrepid photographer may have already cracked the case, however.
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has kept quiet on who he is going to announce to be his running mate next week, but a mistaken report by Politico and a photo of his notes captured by an Associated Press (AP) photographer Tuesday has many suspecting his top candidate for the job is Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.
What exactly happened?
A photographer grabbed a shot of Biden’s handwritten notes with a section titled “Kamala Harris,” which was followed by a list of attributes.
“Do not hold grudges.” “Campaigned with me & Jill.” “Talented.” “Great help to campaign.” “Great respect for her.”
The choice certainly won’t inspire much hope among the Democratic base, however.
Harris had built a reputation for herself as a hard-nosed prosecutor in her pre-Congress days, locking up even non-violent drug offenders for years at a time.
Earlier in 2019, as she, too, was running for President, Harris attempted to laugh this off by stating that she used to “smoke marijuana” and listen to “Tupac” albums in college. The hive mind of the internet quickly rebuked this assertion, noting that Tupac Shakur had not released any music during the time that Harris was in college.
