In the run-up to the 2020 election, many people speculated that Joe Biden was merely a stand-in candidate and that his VP pick would be the actual president.
That speculation continues today, with many people assuming that Biden won’t make it all the way through a first term without having to step down for health reasons or over a controversy.
The media wants people mentally prepared for the possibility of President Kamala, and some are already calling for her to have an increased role.
From the New York Times:
Kamala Harris Deserves a More Important Job
Harris is too smart and energetic to be just the vice president, a position with few official responsibilities. I’d love to see President-elect Joe Biden give her a more important job: his de facto secretary of rural development, in charge of closing the opportunity gap, the connectivity gap, the learning gap, the start-up gap — and the anger and alienation gap — between rural America and the rest of the country…
Kamala Harris is a natural for that task. Who better to bridge Silicon Valley and the rural valleys of America?
She is also a natural bridge builder to a more inclusive American heartland, because rural America is not white America. According to a report by the Urban Institute, “one in five Americans lives in rural communities, and more than one in five (22 percent) rural residents are people of color.” I wrote last year about Willmar, Minn., a town that was all white back in the 1950s and today is nearly half Hispanic, Somali, Asian and Native American.
This is such a ridiculous idea.
Friedman wants Kamala, who was trounced in every debate last year, to be Biden’s ambassador to rural areas. Given that she loathes heartland values, and is incapable of persuading anyone who doesn’t agree with her, this may be Friedman’s worst idea ever. https://t.co/niM8cwdb8b

Wut? Kamala didn't get a single delegate & was picked by Biden because he promised a woman & she couldn't be white after BLM rioted. Now she needs a better job for winning the political lottery? To quote the man whose coat tails she is on, That's Malarkeyhttps://t.co/Jh5wBjqyXj

NY Times columnist says Kamala Harris should be put in charge of 'rural development' 🤣🤦♂️
time to update Reagan's famous line…
What are the most terrifying words in the English language? "I'm Kamala Harris and I'm here to help rural America."https://t.co/uCrOKFwFN0

Get ready for the return of the slobbering media.
The same people who attacked Trump for four solid years can’t wait to kiss Biden’s feet.
