Some people just can’t find a way to connect with those who they desperately “need” to, for their own purposes. Many inept politicians can get into and stay in office, as long as their constituents are a large majority and not really holding them accountable.
It gets more complicated once you are elected to either one of the top two positions in the land. VP Harris is the poster child for politicians trying to get the approval of all Americans, but her personality and poor performance are causing a backlash instead.
A Hill/HarrisX survey on Tuesday showed that only 43 percent of those polled approved of Harris’ job performance, while 7 percent said they were unsure.
In an attempt to connect with potential voters, Harris went on a popular talk show with a large minority audience.
Toward the end of an extended interview with “Charlamagne Tha God” on his Comedy Central show, Charlamagne triggered Vice President Harris by asking her who the real president is: Joe Biden or Sen. Joe Manchin (D)?
“So who is the real president of this country? Is it Joe Manchin or Joe Biden?”
Before Harris could answer the question, Symone Sanders, Harris’ top communications aide, interrupted the interview. “I’m sorry, we’ve got to wrap,” Sanders said. Charlamagne then turned to his producer and said, “They’re acting like they can’t hear me.”
When Harris confirmed that she could, in fact, hear Charlamagne, the host asked his question again. “So who is the real president of this country? Is it Joe Manchin or Joe Biden?”
This is when Harris blew a gasket!
“Come on, Charlamagne! Come on, it’s Joe Biden. No, no, no, no, no! It’s Joe Biden! It’s Joe Biden – And don’t start talking like a Republican about asking whether or not he’s president,” Harris said scolding Charlamagne.
“And it’s Joe Biden! And I’m vice president, and my name is Kamala Harris,” the VP said wagging her finger at Charlamagne.

Then she gets shouty and belligerent and accuses the interviewer of sounding like a Republican (revealing she only expects interviewers to be leftists) pic.twitter.com/pGjmef0adE

After Harris finished listing out what she believes the Biden administration has accomplished in the first 10 months, Charlamagne responded that he liked Harris’ angry response to his question. “That Kamala Harris — that’s the one I like,” he said. Then the interview ended.
Harris’s angry response is not going over very well with some on Twitter.

Another day, another really bad week for Kamala Harris. She is quickly eroding any support she has with donors who had her on a shortlist to run in 2024 as many believe President Biden will end his political career, not running for re-election.
