Poor Joe Biden. It seems as if his campaign can’t get anything right. Politico’s tracker page for his running mate selection updated “by mistake” on Tuesday evening. They quickly tried to delete it, but the damage was done. Biden was scheduled to make the big reveal on August 1 with a bang. Already, Trump supporters are blasting the pick, big time. You’ll love this.
One thing a presidential campaign relishes is the big surprise of announcing the running mate. Sarah Palin comes to mind. Well, Biden’s hapless campaign staffers along with leftwing Politico have screwed up the big moment for…Kamala Harris.
“There’s probably a former intern at Politico looking for a new job right now as, at some point on Tuesday, Politico’s tracker page for Joe Biden’s running mate selection announced that Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris as his running mate… on August 1, 2020, four days from now,” PJ Media reports.
“Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris to become his running mate for the 2020 election on Aug. 1, two weeks before the Democratic National Convention, after keeping his choice close to the chest for months,” claimed Politico on the page that has since been updated to correct their “mistake.”

Additional evidence that Biden’s camp is going with Harris happened at his presser on Tuesday when the Associated Press captured an image of the former Vice President’s notes.
“Biden held notes that were captured by an AP photographer,” Breitbart reports.
Harris’s name was scrawled across the top, followed by five talking points. “Do not hold grudges.” “Campaigned with me & Jill.” “Talented.” “Great help to campaign.” “Great respect for her.”

“While the mistake could easily be blamed on the fact that Politico simply had similar statements pre-made for each potential choice, it’s the details that make you wonder if Politico knows something in advance. For example, they mention a specific date and its closeness to the Democratic National Convention. That’s quite specific. But, it gets even more detailed,” PJ Media adds.
In his announcement, Biden called Harris “a worthy opponent and a worthy running mate,” alluding to the pair’s rivalry during the earlier stages of the Democratic primary. She will bring her experience as a prosecutor, household name recognition, and skill as a debater to the ticket.
It should be noted that most Americans realize Joe Biden cannot run the country and that his Veep pick would for all intents and purposes be the shadow president.
Americans blasted Kamala Harris as the VP pick on social media.
“Kamala Harris is soooo likable – she got a whopping 3% support from her own party in the primaries. LOL!” tweeted Twitter user “Catturd.”

“If @KamalaHarris is really the VP, well have to listen to @cthagod (BLM supporting radio host Charlamagne tha God) do non-stop propaganda for her 3 months to 4 years,” tweeted Mr. Fantastic.

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would be the Democratic dream team. They both have made a career out of incarcerating blacks and other minorities en masse and for petty crimes,” tweeted Peter Gammo.

Kamala Harris most recently created a buzz after appearing on MSNBC looking unlike herself, stirring up speculation that she’s had Botox treatments or plastic surgery recently.
There are, of course, other possible explanations for the Harris leak. Perhaps this “mistake” was a false flag or a trial balloon. The detail used by Politico suggests they might have advanced information, meaning there is some coordination between them and the DNC and/or Biden’s campaign—which many people have suspected anyway.
If this was a “trial balloon,” then politicos are pointing to Congresswoman Val Demings (D-FL) as the other option.
Even though the former police chief has tried to distance herself from her former job, hardcore leftists are refusing to give the Floridian a pass. Her crime, of course, is having a career in law enforcement.
Vox cited “critics” saying, “Demings was part of a broader culture of violence in policing that’s present in Orlando and beyond.” We all know Biden promised to choose a “woman of color.” You’d think his campaign with his cognitive malfunction so prevalent would choose the best-qualified candidate, no matter the race or gender.
