Politico reports Kamala Harris REFUSED to appear in video with Joe Biden on student debt forgiveness extension

Politico reports there are more issues between President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, this time over Harris’ refusal to appear in a video with his boss defending his debt relief extension student :

Apparently, Harris was “worried about being tied down in the long run to a policy that won’t be as progressive/forgiving as she would like”:

From Policy:

At the beginning of April, the vice-president KAMALA HARRIS‘ began collaborating with the White House on a social media video promoting the administration’s extension of its pause on federal student loan payments.

Harris’s office decided against it then, according to two White House officials familiar with the matter.

In the end, the president Joe Biden released his own video and Harris released a statement on politics. It was a change from December – the last time the administration extended the hiatus – when Harris and Biden both filmed videos on social media about the extension that went down then and worked with student debt forgiveness advocates.

It’s Selina Meyer. Really, she is:

We agree with that. We’re not Joe Biden fans, but this is just an amazing gesture from him:

And it smacks of Harris thinking more about being the nominee in 2024 than anything else:

Politico also reported that she was afraid of being tied to Biden on student loan forgiveness because he is “resisting” lobbying from progressives:

Privately, Harris pleaded for additional loan forgiveness. A White House source said his office initially seemed eager to participate in the administration’s public dialogue on student loans. But aware that progressives are pushing Biden to unilaterally write off tens of thousands of dollars in student debt and that Biden is resisting such lobbying, the vice president is increasingly hesitant to be part of the public face of the administration’s response. .

It brings the president to his knees and on the wrong side of the issue. Harris is truly a special kind of politician:

On the bright side, the 2024 Dem primary to replace Biden will be good for our traffic, especially with Harris acting this way:
