Fox host Jesse Waters made a provocative suggestion on Tuesday when he claimed that rumors were spreading that the Biden Administration was seeking to replace Vice-President Kamala Harris with someone else.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Fox News host Jesse Watters said Tuesday that President Joe Biden may be considering removing Kamala Harris, who has been flagging in the polls, as vice president, saying his network has heard “whispers” that confirmation hearings are coming up in Congress.
“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 on Fox. “Why is this a big deal? Because the house does not confirm normal nominees. But it does confirm vice-presidential nominees. 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.”
“There is a lot of conjecture right now about the future of Vice President Harris and her lagging poll numbers,” Pergram said. “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.”
Watters’ comments come after two CNN reporters penned a piece on Sunday headlined “Exasperation and dysfunction: Inside Kamala Harris’ frustrating start as vice president.” The article cited nearly three dozen officials in Harris’ office and the White House as their sources, and few had nice things to say.
The rumor comes in the wake of new poll numbers that show Harris’s approval at an abysmal 28 percent, the lowest of any Vice-President ever.
