Psaki Claims Kamala Best Alternative to Biden

If President Joe Biden steps down, Vice President Kamala Harris is unquestionably the finest “alternative” to take his position at the top of the Democratic Party ticket, according to a new statement from Jen Psaki, who questioned why more Democrats are not talking about her in this regard.

This week, Psaki appeared on Pod Save America with former Barack Obama aide Jon Lovett to talk about the current controversy surrounding her former boss, Joe Biden.

“There is a question out there that, again, I think campaigns are talking about, about the alternative and the alternative is very clearly in my view — there’s a lot of really amazing Democrats on the bench, but because of the timeline and everything, I think it is clearly Kamala Harris,” she said.

“I don’t why there hasn’t been kind of an overwhelming ‘Kamala would be a great president and she would be a fierce, amazing campaigner,’ right? But that’s not typically the message. I’m observing what people are saying. It’s typically ‘don’t take it away from Kamala Harris if it’s open, that would be unfair,’” she continued.

Following his CNN debate last month and the interviews that followed, which sparked criticism and raised questions about his health, many in his own party have called for Biden’s resignation.

According to Psaki, Democrats should be most worried about races that are further down the ballot in the fall and how the Democratic ticket would fare in those contests.

“It’s almost like public opinion hasn’t caught up with what she is doing out there and also we live in a country that is sexist and racist so there is that. Not everybody at all, but there is a level of it that does impact elections.” Psaki concluded.
