(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In a recent hit piece published by the Washington Post, a number of prominent Democrats slammed Vice President Kamala Harris for lacking “basic political skills.”
Harris, who some believe is considering a 2024 Presidential run, has made numerous gaffes during her time in office, and has generally been inactive.
But according to one South Carolina Democrat strategist, Harris simply does not have what it takes to be president in hard times.
“Every fiber in my body wants her to be president; everything I’ve ever fought for is for someone like her to be president,” the anonymous leftist said.
“I think she’s a good person with a good heart who can lead the country. But I don’t know that the people who have to make that happen feel that way right now. I don’t know that she has what it takes to get over the hump in our present environment.”
Other “Democratic leaders in key states” expressed concerns that her lack of performance as VP indicates that she would not be a viable presidential candidate.
Per former Cobb County Democrats Chair Jacquelyn Bettadapur, a Harris supporter, Harris has struggled with basic communication as VP.
“People are poised to pounce on anything — any misstep, any gaffe, anything she says — and so she’s probably not getting the benefit of the doubt,” she said. “It doesn’t help that she’s not [that] adept as a communicator.”
Kamala Harris is monumentally unfit to be Vice President of the United States. Her sheer ignorance on the international stage, complete lack of policy knowledge, and frequent gaffes are an embarrassment to the world’s superpower. https://t.co/WknzdHM6Tc

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., also refused to openly endorse Harris, deferring to the judgment of the president.
