The Biden administration has completely fallen apart and failed Americans.
Vice President Kamala Harris won’t even answer whether she will be Joe Biden’s running mate again in 2024.
During an interview, NBC’s Craig Melvin asked, “Are we going to see the same Democratic ticket in 2024?”
“I’m sorry, we are thinking about today,” Harris pushed back.
“I mean honestly — I know why you’re asking the question because this is part of the punditry and the gossip around places like Washington, D.C.” Harris continued.
“Let me just tell you something, we’re focused on the things in front of us,” Harris concluded, refusing to answer the basic question.

There has been widespread speculation that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris may not run again for the White House in 2024.
Biden, who is already the oldest person to become president in 2020, will be approaching the age of 82 at the time of the next presidential election in November of 2024.
Private text messages that surfaced from Hunter Biden revealed multiple jokes to his therapist about his father suffering from dementia.
Ronny Jackson, who is the former White House physician under both Presidents Obama and Trump, has also warned Americans that “something’s seriously wrong with Biden” regarding his mental health.
During an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Harris was asked if she assumed that Biden would run again and she didn’t say yes.
On the other hand, Kamala Harris is the worst vice president in U.S. history with an approval rating of only 28 percent, according to USA Today. Business Insider confirmed this is the lowest rating for any vice president in history.
A bombshell article from CNN interviewed nearly three dozen current and former staffers for Harris which showed there is significant dysfunction within her team. “Harris is struggling with a rocky relationship with some parts of the White House,” CNN reported about Harris, who once even accused Joe Biden of being racist during the Democratic primary race.
Multiple top aides on Harri’s team have quit, including veteran communications chief Ashley Etienne who previously worked for Obama, Joe Biden, and Nancy Pelosi.
All of the rumors were seemingly put to rest as the White House confirmed that Biden will seek reelection in 2024 with Kamala Harris as his running mate.
During a press briefing, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed Biden does indeed plan to run for reelection in 2024 and that he also plans to keep Vice President Kamala Harris on the ticket.
A reporter asked, “I’m hoping you can clear something up here when it comes to the question of 2024. The Vice President did an interview with The Wall Street Journal. She was asked if she assumed that Biden would run again, and she didn’t say yes.”
“She just said that the two of them hadn’t talked about it. Of course, you all and the President himself have said that he does plan to seek reelection. So what’s the disconnect here?”
“I can’t speak to a conversation that the Vice President and the President has,” Jean-Pierre answered. “I could only say what and reiterate what Jen (Psaki) has said and what the President has said himself. He is planning to run for reelection in 2024. I don’t have any more to add to that.”
The reporter asked, “But just to be clear, when the President says he plans to run again, he means with Harris on the ticket?”
“Yes, he does. There’s no change,” Jean-Pierre replied. “Yes. Yes.”
More from Daily Wire:
Harris told the Journal, “I’m not going to talk about our conversations, but I will tell you this without any ambiguity: We do not talk about nor have we talked about re-election, because we haven’t completed our first year and we’re in the middle of a pandemic.” When she was queried as to whether Biden would run again, she said, “I’ll be very honest: I don’t think about it, nor have we talked about it.”
The Journal noted, “Both Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris are ending their first year with weak poll numbers. An Economist/YouGov survey this week found that 39% of respondents saw Ms. Harris favorably, while 51% had an unfavorable view of her and 10% were unsure. A recent Journal poll found 41% of voters approved of Mr. Biden’s job performance.”
Some pollsters are looking for a Hillary Clinton comeback.
In The Wall Street Journal, liberals Andrew Stein and Doug Schoen wrote an opinion column detailing why Clinton would be the Democratic ticket’s best option.
Daily Wire concludes, “Regardless of who runs in 2024, Harris’ hesitancy and demeanor on The Today Show indicate the reported friction between Harris and Biden may be more than has been led on in the media.”
“The White House was plagued by reports of ‘animosity’ between the president and vice president all of last fall. At a time when the White House is trying to push major voting rights legislation in a united front, it is not the best look when the president and vice president either cannot agree on proper messaging about the future.”
