Democrat Senator Says Kamala Harris is “Ready to Be President”

Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) appeared on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday to prop up Vice President Kamala Harris to liberal viewers.

Coons said Harris is “ready to be president should that ever happen.”

The Democrat senator is likely referring to Joe Biden’s health and if he should ever step down during his term.

Although not many Democrats will publicly admit it, Biden’s mental capacity is a significant topic.

There’s a major concern about who should be the Democratic candidate if Biden can no longer be the White House resident.

Since Kamala Harris is widely unpopular, the effort by Coons will probably be scoffed at by most voters.

“The vice president, like many vice presidents, has struggled to get positive press coverage and to get the credit she deserves for the hard work that she’s been doing,” Coons said.

“I had a great opportunity to travel with her at a recent trip to Ghana and was so struck by how easy and engaging she was by the speeches she gave,” he continued.

“The vice president’s ready to run and ready to be president should that ever happen,” he noted.


Is he referring to a different Kamala Harris that we don’t know?

Coons also said Biden would defeat Trump in a 2024 rematch.

From ABC News:

Delaware Democratic Sen. Chris Coons on Sunday pushed back on concerns that President Joe Biden’s age and the lack of enthusiasm he inspires in voters make him unfit for reelection — predicting instead that Biden would win in a 2024 rematch with the “the alternative”: Donald Trump.

“Two years later, President Biden is stronger,” Coons, a national co-chair of Biden’s campaign, told ABC “This Week” co-anchor Martha Raddatz. “He has an incredible record to run on. And the former president is weaker. He’s been indicted. He spent years just re-litigating 2020.”

In the interview, Coons defended the Biden White House, and the performance of Vice President Kamala Harris, while criticizing Republicans, including the GOP’s latest strategy on raising the debt ceiling to avoid default.

Biden launched his 2024 bid with a video announcement on Tuesday that contrasted his work with what he called “MAGA Republicans.”

“I’ll remind you, our president often says, ‘Don’t compare me to the almighty, compare me to the alternative,'” Coons said on Sunday. “When folks get polled on a head-to-head if Donald Trump should be the Republican nominee again, he wins, and he wins decisively.”

But Raddatz pointed to polling that also shows a majority of Democrats don’t want Biden to be their nominee in the next election. Coons contended that a different set of numbers matter more: the millions of jobs — 850,000 of which are in manufacturing — created during the Biden administration.

If not Joe Biden, then who will be the Democrat nominee?

While Coons pushed Kamala Harris as someone ready to be president, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said to pay attention to Michelle Obama.
