2020 US Election: Will Jill Biden and Kamala Harris REALLY Rule?


The Democrats are proud of Jill Biden.

While Republicans gnawed frustrated with Melania Trump's almost complete absence from campaigning until yesterday, the opposition was able to contrast her with the ball of angry energy that is Joe Biden's wife.

She was as visible and supportive as the Ice Age and monosyllabic Mrs. Trump was invisible and unhelpful.

But there is support and support. How much a stone Ms. Biden is to her 77-year-old husband's "gaffe machine" (and that's his own description) was revealed on Sunday when the budding first lady appeared to be feeding her tongue. bound husband with lines like a ventriloquist with her doll.

The occasion was a virtual concert entitled "I'm Going to Vote" at which Cher, Dame Helen Mirren and numerous other democratic support stars called on voters to get Donald Trump out of next week's election and get rid of Donald Trump.

Asked about the significance of the next week's election, Biden quickly turned to face the rocks as he sat next to his wife on a sofa in their Delaware home.

"I think the character of the country is literally on the ballot," he said. “What kind of country will we be. Four more years of George, um, George, we'll be in a position where we'll be in another world when Trump is elected. & # 39;

Twice when he heard about & # 39; George & # 39; spoke, Mrs. Biden's lips moved as she said & # 39; Trump & # 39; prompted.

Its enemies did not miss it. A delighted Trump, who cruelly accused Biden of suffering from dementia, crowed that his opponent could not remember his name.

Democrats pointed out that Biden was interviewed by another George, comedian George Lopez, but it was an unsatisfactory explanation.

Unfortunately, the energy and vigilance of those around him - notably his wife and runner-up, Kamala Harris - only highlighted Biden's lack of energy and sometimes apparent confusion

Voters have gotten used to terrible Biden fouls – since he started his presidential bid, he has told voters at least twice that he is running for the U.S. Senate seems to have forgotten the name of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, with whom his wife was mistaken for his sister Valerie, claiming that "poor children are just as smart and talented as white children".

Unfortunately, the energy and vigilance of those around him – notably his wife and runner-up, Kamala Harris – have only highlighted Biden's lack of energy and sometimes apparent confusion.

If, as increasingly expected, he becomes president after a lackluster campaign that largely depends on his simply not being Donald Trump, the impression will remain that the oldest White House winner in US history with women on both sides his arms limping up across the finish line.

As a result, succession has become a highly sensitive issue. Biden would be nearly 82 at the end of his first term.

And The Donald loses no opportunity to remind voters that they may not choose between him and the moderate "Sleepy Joe", but between him and "Phony Kamala", who would automatically succeed if he stepped down in the medium term.

And if that happened, the presidency would be in the hands of arguably the most radical left-wing politician to ever hold office.

For Kamala, Harris is not a Milque Toast centrist, but a politician who has adopted an increasingly radical agenda to win over the more extreme wings of the Democratic Party. She laughed on Sunday when an interviewer asked if she was a socialist.

However, it couldn't deny its support for various left-wing measures like a carbon-free future under the so-called Green New Deal, which Biden did not join.

And when a radio host asked if she supported the legalization of marijuana last year, she laughed, "Half of my family is from Jamaica – are you kidding me?"

While Harris has claimed she will remain loyal to Biden on politics, the reality is that they are vastly separated on various key issues.

Biden has said he does not support defusing the police, while Harris has spoken of "rethinking the way we do public safety in America." It also goes further than Biden on gun control and supports the mandatory government purchase or "buyback" of all privately owned offensive weapons.

She supports an enormously expensive universal health plan – called Medicare for All – while her run companion does not. And Harris has even proposed that all workers be given six months of paid family leave for personal or medical problems, including domestic violence. It's twice as long as even self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders considered.

She also suggested that large companies should be forced to become certified for equal pay and that they should remain open to hefty fines if they fail to close the gender pay gap. As a child of migrants, she has pledged to provide a route to citizenship for all undocumented immigrants.

More controversial was that it incited conservative anger in a 2018 Senate hearing by comparing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a U.S. agency responsible for tracing illegal immigrants, to the Ku Klux Klan.

On climate change, she is against fracking and wants the government to take legal action against the fossil fuel industry.

None of this is surprising when we consider its background. Joe Biden's run mate is about as different from Mike Pence, the vice president of The Donald's Robot. The spiky, powerful daughter of academics (her father is an economist, her mother a cancer researcher), trained as a prosecutor and quickly rose through the ranks, if not without controversy.

In the 1990s, the ambitious Harris began an affair with Willie Brown, a controversial and married black California politician who was almost her father's age at 31.

Harris has since described him as "an albatross hanging around my neck". And no wonder he has been twice investigated by the FBI for corruption – though never charged – and even starred in the movie The Godfather Part III, shaking hands with Michael Corleone.

Brown mentored Harris, appointed her two state commission posts, and encouraged her to pursue her ambitions.

She was promoted to California attorney general in 2010 and the second black woman to win a Senate seat in 2017. The media called her "the female Obama".

Harris had now married Doug, a corporate attorney, and was the stepmother to his two children, Ella and Cole. A longtime supporter said once Harris got married, "I knew she was running for president."

And so it turned out. The California senator, who once told her colleagues that she would never run for the presidency because it was a "terrible job," threw her hat in the ring last year. Her offer was generally viewed as uninspiring, and she had to back off, but not before tearing off a strip or two in debate on Biden.

Harris won't be the only woman flexing her muscles in a Biden White House. Melania Trump has never shown any enthusiasm for a first lady role far more significant, with her own office and budget, than the wife of a prime minister in the UK.

All the signs are that Jill Biden is very different. With her endless appearances at virtual fundraisers and rallies, she could have emerged straight from a First Lady clone program.

Ms. Biden is a 69-year-old English teacher and grandmother who publishes sensible, no-frills recipes online with homely comments. It has the kind of "backstory" that would make a presidential campaign manager cry with joy.

Born Jill Jacobs, the daughter of a bank teller, met Biden on a blind date in 1975, three years after his first wife and their young daughter were killed in a car accident.

Mr Biden later admitted his first seeing her in a newspaper ad, and that summer her first husband, Bill Stevenson, claimed Jill started an affair with the Senator while she was married to him.

Jill has said that she initially thought Joe, nine years older, was too old for her, and when he arrived to pick her up on a first date in a suit and polished shoes in the 1970s, she admitted that hers first reaction was to think "thank god this is only a date".

However, he surprised her with his friendliness and charm, especially when he brought her home and said good night by shaking hands.

"I was so surprised that I ran upstairs and called my mom – it was one o'clock in the morning – and said, 'Mom, I've finally found a gentleman," she recalls.

Even so, Mr. Biden said he had to ask her five times before she agreed to marry him. "Most of all, I fell in love with the boys," she says of his two young sons from his first marriage.

If that trust doesn't seal the deal with suburban housewives, Ms. Biden recently revealed that her favorite song is "I've been telling you lately (that I love you)," which she put on whenever he got home from the Senate . They married in 1977 and had a daughter in 1981.

Ms. Biden also has a steely side, which she showed at a Biden rally in March when two vegan militants jumped on stage and clutched the "Let Dairy Die" posters. Ms. B immediately stood between her and her husband and pushed them away.

She runs five miles a day, five days a week, and if her husband wins, she will be the first first lady to continue her job as an English professor at North Virginia Community College.

“Being a teacher is not what I do, but who I am,” she said. She has written about how in her days as America's "Second Lady" in the Obama administration with the Air Force Two, she did school markings and "crawled into a cocktail dress and heels" in a school bathroom to go to a White House reception to get .

Assuming her husband wins the presidency, Jill Biden will do everything possible to keep her husband in the White House.

While it's all about sweetness and lightness between Harris and Biden right now, insiders warn that the budding Veep has a reputation for not being a team player.

However, if she ever tries to surprise President Sleepy Joe, Harris will face his not-so-indolent wife.
