Jill Biden told fans that Kamala Harris could ‘go f**k’ herself after the June 2019 Democratic primary debate where the then-candidate attacked Joe Biden for encouraging racist policies throughout his Senate career.
According to an excerpt printed in Politico from journalist Edward Isaac Dovere’s forthcoming book on the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, before Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris to run on his ticket as vice president, the first couple had a visceral response to her remarks during the debate in Miami, Florida two summers ago.
Jill said on a telephone call with close fans a week after the debate, according to multiple people on the call ‘With what he cares about, what he fights for, what he’s committed to, you get up there and call him a racist without basis?’
‘Go f**k yourself.’
A spokesperson for the first lady Michael Larosa told Politico of the excerpt and said that multiple books would be written on the 2020 campaign, with innumerable retellings of events, some true, some not so true.
He continued that the First Lady and her team didn’t intend in discussing any of them.
Joe Biden was No 2 to Barack Obama, the first black president in American history, from 2009-2017.
After becoming the Democratic candidate for president in 2020, he chose Kamala Harris as his running mate and she later became the first minority and first woman to hold the position of vice president.
During the debate in 2019, Joe Biden was blindsided by Kamala Harris’ attacks, which alleged he didn’t support the desegregation of schools by way of busing in the 1970s.
Kamala Harris, a half Indian, half Jamaican daughter of immigrants reminded Joe Biden at the time that she was the beneficiary of the busing system.
After a tense back and forth, one of the most interesting interactions on the 2020 campaign trail, moderators paused for a commercial break.
Joe Biden then said to Pete Buttigieg on stage during the commercial break, and multiple people said it was relayed to them afterwards, ‘Well, that was some f*ing bullst.’
Joe Biden hardly knew Pete Buttigieg, a fellow Democratic competitor at the time and now the president’s transportation secretary, but wanted to participate at that moment with someone on stage.
At some time during that debate in Miami, which was the first of the 2020 campaign season, Kamala Harris said that as the only black person on the stage, that she would like to speak, on the matter of race – well, you go sister, you shouldn’t be taking any baloney, and welcome to the world of anti-American socialist profanity and vulgarity – this is what you voted for.
It’s kind of funny how they don’t seem to like one another, but then act all lovey-dovey to the public. Of course, Kamala Harris shouldn’t have said anything, but it did get her onto the headlines, and after all, it’s all a huge playground out there in DC.
However, it’s not the biggest deal in the world because that’s what normal people call a healthy debate, and sometimes it helps people grow, and at least we finally get a glimpse at what goes on behind the Whitehouse drapes, perhaps it’s not so rosy after all.
And we all say things when we’re offended – look at the track record of the orange clown, Donald Trump, that wasn’t so pretty, and he was a potty mouth way before he was elected in 2016, and I bet you were all wondering when I was going to bring up the orange clown?
