Many Americans have been wondering if Joe Biden is really the one calling the shots in the White House.
They finally got an answer to this troubling question.
And Kamala Harris replaced Joe Biden with one phone call.
When Joe Biden campaigned for president, he described himself as a transitional figure that would pass the torch to the next generation of Democrat Party leaders.
Many assumed that meant he would only serve one term and step aside to let Kamala Harris run as the president in the 2024 election.
During the campaign Biden experienced many “senior moments,” and his often-confused behavior’s only gotten worse since taking office.
Now with crises engulfing the administration in both foreign and domestic affairs, Kamala Harris is handling duties that violate protocol because they are tasks only the president should carry out.
One of Biden’s self-inflicted calamities was the conflict in the Middle East.
Biden emboldened the terrorist group Hamas by funneling over 200 million dollars in taxpayer money to the Palestinians in a reversal of one of Donald Trump’s successful Middle East policies.
After days of fighting pressure from the left flank of his party—which is strongly anti-Israel and critics contend pro-Hamas—the administration began leaning on Israel to back off its military self-defense operations.
But a bizarre tweet from the Royal Hashemite Court in Jordan indicated that it was Kamala Harris—and not Joe Biden—that reached out to King Abdullah II to help broker a ceasefire.
“His Majesty King Abdullah II receives a phone call from #US Vice President Kamala Harris and affirms the need to continue all efforts to stop the Israeli escalations in East #Jerusalem and the aggression on Gaza.” The Royal Court added that “His Majesty King Abdullah II to #US VP Kamala Harris: Important to step up efforts and work together to push the peace process forward.”
This is a flagrant violation of protocol.
King Abdullah is a head of state and Kamala Harris is a subordinate figure to him.
Heads of state only speak to other heads of state.
This is also not the first time Kamala Harris stepped in for Joe Biden with no explanation given by the administration.
When Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga visited the White House, Harris broke protocol by being the one to greet him instead of Joe Biden.
Harris also held phone calls with French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The media and the administration may treat Harris as Joe Biden’s equal, but they are not.
In a functioning administration, Joe Biden would speak to his peers.
But this is not a typical administration.
There have been times when Joe Biden could not recall the name of his secretary of defense or the Pentagon.
Some critics are wondering if Harris handled the calls to a key ally during a time of international crisis because at that moment Joe Biden was not capable of performing his duties.
With the number of crises America currently faces, that is a frightening reality to many people.
