Well-known Fox News host Jesse Watters obtained information that Congress is to hold confirmation hearings. However, it doesn’t do them for regular candidates, only for those running for Vice President, and he believes it could be about Kamala Harris’ replacement.
“Our Capitol Hill Correspondent Chad Pergram tells us he’s been hearing whispers suggesting there could be some new high-profile confirmation hearings on the horizon in the House of Representatives,” Watters said, according to Daily Mail Nov. 17.
Watters added, “Does this have something to do with Kamala Harris? It’s been no secret she’s been running out of favor with the Biden team.”
He went on to allude to reports that claimed that aides to the president, Joe Biden, deplored Harris’ “dysfunction and lack of focus” and low approval rating of just 28%.
For his part, Pergram noted, “So I got a message recently from someone who knows Capitol Hill very well and they suggested I should familiarize myself with the process to confirm a vacancy for the vice president in the Senate and in the House.”
“There is a lot of conjecture right now about the future of Vice President Harris and her lagging poll numbers,” Pergram continued.
In the video in which Watters refers to Harris’ apparent problem, he adds that the Biden administration gave Harris a “high-profile speaking slot” in the announcement of a televised infrastructure bill in an effort to bolster her status.
But the person who introduced her ruined the moment, expressing, “Please welcome, Heather Kurtenbach.” Watters added a video clip of the incident.
Kurtenbach is a union organizer for ironworkers. Critics say the slip illustrates Harris’ lack of presidential charisma.
The rumors have been of such intensity that the hosts of Fox’s ‘The Five’ had already talked about Harris’ possible replacement.
“You can tell there’s a problem here. We know it. They called a cabinet meeting for the first time in three months last Friday on the day when Kamala Harris was not even in the country,” said host Dana Perino.
She even mentioned the procedure for confirming a new vice president while the departing one is still active. The last one to be replaced in this way was Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, who served under President Ford from 1974 to 1977.
Harris is criticized for her handling of the border crisis and her authenticity is questioned after staging a class with paid child actors, and her forced French accent during an assignment in Paris.
In this regard, author Kyle Smith wrote, “It’s gotten so bad for Harris that even state media outlets such as CNN are regretfully informing the public that she just ain’t got what it takes.”
However, according to one of her tweets, White House press secretary Jen Psaki denied that Kamala Harris had problems with her role in the Biden administration.
“For anyone who needs to hear it. @VP is not only a vital partner to @POTUS but a bold leader who has taken on key, important challenges facing the country—from voting rights to addressing root causes of migration to expanding broadband,” Psaki posted.
