Did Joe Biden Suggest Kamala Harris May Be President Soon? (Video)

On Monday, Joe Biden honored the 2020 WNBA champions Seattle Storm, celebrating their success on the court while hailing their social justice activism.  During his remarks, however, he said something that had many thinking that his vice president, Kamala Harris, would soon be taking the top spot in the administration.

“That’s why, by the way, she’s — and happens to be in Asia for me right now — but that’s why we have a female Vice President of United States of America who’s going to be — we’re going to have some presidents pretty soon,” he said, according to the official White House transcript.

Here’s video of that comment:

Of course, this had quite a few people scratching their heads.

It certainly seems that way.  Remember what he said just before the election?

“Secondly, we’re in a situation where we have put together — and you’d [sic] guys, did it for our, the president Obama’s administration, before this — we have put together, I think, the most extensive and and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”

At first blush it certainly sounds as if Biden is suggesting Harris may be stepping into his shoes fairly soon, but let’s remember this is Joe Biden, a man who has a very difficult time putting together a coherent sentence.

Here’s the statement in context:

For 25 years, the WNBA has been changing what’s possible for millions of women and girls all across the world. You give people — you give them courage.

You know, I can say as much as I want — from the time my two daughters were born — that you can do anything a man can do. It’s one thing for somebody to say that and keep pounding that in the head of your five granddaughters as well. But guess what? Until they see it, until they watch, it becomes real then.

That’s why, by the way, she’s — and happens to be in Asia for me right now — but that’s why we have a female Vice President of United States of America who’s going to be — we’re going to have some presidents pretty soon.

And redefining what sports can mean in the life of a community and the never-ending work of building a more just, a more equal, and a more perfect union.

It’s quite possible Biden meant to say, “we’re going to have some female presidents pretty soon.”

But who knows…

He made a few other comments that don’t seem to make a whole lot of sense.  For example, he said Susan Rice’s expertise lay in foreign policy, so he put her in charge of domestic policy:

And Susan Rice — Ambassador Rice, she played high school basketball, and her niece is the top of the high school players — one of the top high school players in the country and may just be in the W one day. Where — where are you, Susan — Ambassador Rice? (Applause.)

Her expertise is foreign policy, so I asked her to take over domestic policy for me. But, anyway, Susan, I’m anxious to meet your niece.

Say what?

He also suggested he would make a good ball boy for the team:

You’re an inspiring team, and you represent a hell of a city — a great American city and a groundbreaking league. The only all-female ownership group in pro sports — Lisa, Ginny, and Dawn: Congratulations. Congratulations. (Applause.)

I may need work after this. I’d be a good ball boy. I can — (laughter) — I can (inaudible).

Suffice it to say, Biden isn’t exactly an articulate speaker…

Still, many think he might have accidentally let the cat out of the bag.  After all, it wouldn’t be the first time he’s referred to Harris as the president…
