Kamala Harris knows how to hold a grudge. Elizabeth Warren is learning that the hard way.
The former opponents for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2020 were friends in the Senate and in the early days after Harris was installed with Joe Biden in the White House, but comments made by Warren a couple of months ago have apparently miffed the VP.
According to Washington Examiner:
Vice President Kamala Harris reportedly is not returning Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) phone calls due to comments the senator made back in January.
Warren has called Harris at least twice to apologize for comments she made in a Boston radio interview about whether Harris should remain President Joe Biden’s running mate in 2024 — remarks she has since maintained were a mistake, CNN reported.
“I really want to defer to what makes Biden comfortable on his team,” Warren told Boston Public Radio. “I’ve known Kamala for a long time. I like Kamala. I knew her back when she was an attorney general, and I was still teaching, and we worked on the housing crisis together, so we go way back.”
“But they need — they have to be a team, and my sense is they are — I don’t mean that by suggesting I think there are any problems. I think they are,” she added.
At the time, rumors were swirling that many top Democrats harbored misgivings about Harris after a series of apparent gaffes and political hiccups plaguing her. Warren’s comments added fuel to the fire, but Warren conveyed to chief of staff Lorraine Voles that her remarks were merely a mistake, per the report.
To be fair, Harris has been the worst Vice President in modern history, accomplishing literally nothing and dispensing more word salads than Al Gore and Dan Quayle combined. She shouldn’t hold a grudge just because Warren said one truthful thing this year.
