(LibertySociety.com) – On November 14, CNN wrote a piece alleging the White House is sidelining Vice President Kamala Harris and not using her to her full capacity. There were claims the situation has been causing her much frustration in her role. Highlighting their suspicions, the staff neglected to introduce her at the signing of the $1.2-trillion bipartisan infrastructure package on November 15. To top it off, the VP had to fight her way through the crowd to stand next to the president during the actual signing.

The announcement mishap, introducing Harris as Heather Kurtenbach, may have been brushed off as a simple staff slip-up if it weren’t for the swirling rumors of dissatisfaction within the Biden Administration. After her words about the infrastructure package, she introduced Kurtenbach, who had the honor of turning the podium over to the President.
Press Secretary Jen Psaki quickly addressed the gaff, insisting the Vice President is a “valuable member of the team.” She pointed out during a briefing that Biden relies on Harris for advice and counsel. Some believe the quick response was too over the top, suggesting the White House wouldn’t have to defend rumors if there weren’t some truth to them.
