Vice President Harris: The Creepiest and Least Important Occupant of the White House

While the Constitution does not assign many official duties to a US Vice President, the VP’s importance can hardly be overestimated, because he/she is one heartbeat away from the Presidency. And when you have a President that is 78 years old and does not appear to be in the best physical shape, the character of the VP becomes paramount.

Let’s review the duties of the US Vice President:

The only other formally recognized duty of the Vice President is to preside over and certify the tally of electoral college votes after a Presidential election has taken place.

However, the role also brings with it many visible, informal responsibilities. These would typically vary depending upon the relationship between the President and Veep of the day, but have typically included:

  • Making public appearances representing the President
  • Performing ceremonial duties in place of the President
  • Acting as an adviser to the President
  • Meeting with heads of state or government of other countries

 

Historically, Vice Presidents had many important responsibilities.

For example, Richard Nixon was given the task of running cabinet meetings in the absence of President Eisenhower, and Nixon acted on his behalf on two occasions when Eisenhower suffered a heart attack, and then a stroke.

Dick Cheney was an especially powerful vice-president, who as a former Secretary of Defense, advised President Bush on defense and national security issues, and is heavily credited as one of the main architects of the Iraq War.

Mike Pence’s Vice Presidential record was remarkable.

  • In February 2017, Mike Pence issued a stark warning to Iran:  “Iran would do well not to test the resolve of this new president.   Iran should think twice about their continued hostile and belligerent actions.”
  • In April 2017, Mike Pence put North Korea on notice, warning that recent U.S. military strikes in Syria and Afghanistan showed the resolve of President Donald Trump should not be tested.
  • The same month, Mike Pence traveled to Indonesia to support democracy and praise moderate Islam.
  • In February 2018, during his trip to Olympics in Pyeongchang, Mike Pence skipped a dinner at which he was expected to share a table with North Korea’s ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam, a sister of North Korean murderous dictator Kim Jon Un.
  • Finally, during the final year of the Trump administration, Mike Pence headed the Coronavirus Task Force which oversaw the development of multiple Covid vaccines in just 10 months.

 

In comparison, in her 4 months as Vice President, Kamala Harris has distinguished herself shockingly little. She has not issued many public statements aside from praising criminals and trashing her country. She has taken no overseas trips. So far, her duties seem to be solely limited to accompanying Joe Biden to his limited public engagements – a role that is the best fit for a nurse, rather than a Vice President.

Here is Kamala Harris making sure Joe Biden signs at the correct line.

Here is Kamala Harris making sure Joe knows what he is signing.

Here is Kamala Harris being a potted plant as Joe Biden delivers remarks at the State Department.

Aside from making sure that Joe Biden can find the nearest bathroom, it is unclear what VP Harris’s duties at the White House are.  So far, her only accomplishment was blatantly refusing to follow her boss’ order to lead the efforts to solve the Southern Border crisis.  Her outreach to the media often entails randomly laughing at situations nobody finds funny – a dead giveaway of an insecure person not being able to defend her positions.

Despite the fact that Kamala Harris’ role at the White House is less prominent than that of a housekeeper, VP Harris is largely viewed as an acting President.

Here is Kamala Harris envisioning her future role on September 15th, 2020.

Here is Joe Biden agreeing with her on December 29th, 2020.

Here is Joe Biden referring to Kamala Harris as President on March 18th, 2021.

In March, the White House released a memo officially recognizing Kamala Harris as an acting President. The release of the memo immediately following Joe Biden’s Air Force One stair accident is purely coincidental.

“Please be sure to reference the current administration as the ‘Biden-Harris Administration’ in official public communications,” the directive reads, with “Biden-Harris Administration” accented in bold.

Kamala Harris enjoys less popularity in this country than Covid. It is obvious that Joe Biden does not have any use for her, following this embarrassment at the Presidential Debate. She is also not well-liked by the American people, having to drop out of the Presidential race with under 3 point support – which she dutifully blamed on “systemic racism”. VP Kamala finds no irony serving for a man who she once publicly called out for being “hurtful” and “working with segregationists.”

VP Kamala is probably smart enough to realize that the only qualifications Joe Biden’s handlers considered when picking her as the Vice Presidential candidate was her race and gender. To this day, she does not mind that her main role continues to be serving as one of the Biden administration’s diversity checkboxes.

When Kamala Harris was first named as Vice Presidential candidate, this “achievement” was lauded by many as a huge step for all women. Her Vice Presidential career thus far has proven that nothing can be further from the truth. Despite her title, Kamala Harris is less consequential for this country than Rachel Levine.

If Joe Biden’s mental and physical abilities continue to deteriorate, Kamala Harris may indeed end up being the first woman President in US history. That will be a deep shame because she would have achieved that role not because she was qualified or representing a women’s remarkable accomplishments in this country at all.

What do you think?

Written by Tatyana Larina

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.

  1. Ok, two thoughts come to mind reading this.
    1. I am not proud of this but I just feel like saying wtf when I watch that woman. Harris looks and acts literally high every time I see her or hear her. And yes- there is a creepy factor too.
    2. I have not done a deep dive to compare records , but I too am gobsmacked at how productive Vice President Pence was during his tenure. I credit Pence but also his boss for the way Trump put him in the center of the administrative agenda. I always felt that was a true team that respected one another and shared a common goal.
    I hope I live long enough to read an accurate history book on the Trump administration’s remarkable accomplishments and exposing the Pravda media ‘s role in hindering Americans security and prosperity. I enjoyed this article.
