The Biden administration is facing the unpredictable swings in gas and food prices, inflation and conflict overseas. A new book will be out in May that will provide insight into some of the problems behind the scenes.
The book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” is coauthored by two New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns.

Strang Between President and VP
The book dishes the inside scoop on how Kamala Harris’ team, throughout the first year of Joe Biden’s presidency, was upset about the areas of responsibility she was tasked with.
An excerpt reveals that Biden communications director Kate Bedingfield blamed Harris for her own horrendous first year in office – and that it maybe shouldn’t have been a surprise: “In private, Bedingfield had taken to noting that the vice presidency was not the first time in Harris’s political career that she had fallen short of sky-high expectations: Her Senate office had been messy and her presidential campaign had been a fiasco. Perhaps, she suggested, the problem was not the vice president’s staff.”
Bedingfield gave a non-denial denial of the claim in a response to Politico, saying: “The fact that no one working on this book bothered to call to fact check this unattributed claim tells you what you need to know. Vice President Harris is a force in this administration and I have the utmost respect for the work she does every day to move the country forward.”

Another bit in the book reveals that Harris and Biden’s weekly lunches “lacked a real depth of personal and political intimacy.”

Harris Was Not the Only One Who Supported Harris’ VP Pick
This book includes details on how Jill Biden, First Lady of the United States, was not happy with Kamala’s selection for VP. A portion of the book is available here.
“Speaking in confidence with a close adviser to her husband’s campaign, the future first lady posed a pointed question. She began, “There are many people in America.” Why, she asked, do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe?”
Kamala Harris was already a skeptic of the First Lady’s comments about a debate in which Harris attacked Biden over his racist views on busing.
In the debate, Harris said, “It was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States Senators who built their reputations and careers on the segregation of race in this country. Not only was that true, but also you worked together to stop bussing. Do you agree today that you were wrong to oppose bussing in America?”
of course he did…
Biden warned employees that anyone who leaks negative stories after Kamala’s disastrous Guatemala trip to Guatemala was going to be fired.

The Revolving Door Of The VP’s Office
The turnover rate among Kamala Harris’ staff seems to be unusually high, even for high pressure White House jobs. Sabrina Singh (deputy press secretary) is the latest of a long list of employees to be fired. She will now work at Defense Department.
It is not an uncommon problem. Back in December, as many as four staff members in Harris’ office announced they were leaving at the same time. This followed a CNN report on troubles then in the VP’s office.
The atmosphere in Harris’ office was described as “tense” and “dour.” Some staff described situations where ideas might be brought up but were either dismissed or ignored. Harris doesn’t take responsibility for critical issues, and instead blames employees when they have problems.
