The Biden administration is gearing up for a Kamala Harris “roadshow.”
“President Biden is planning more media, a major speech, an address to Congress, and a roadshow featuring VP Kamala Harris,” Politico revealed, adding, “all with an eye on promoting the massive, soon-to-be passed Covid bill.”
This new development begs the question: Is the Biden Administration planting the seeds for a Kamala Harris takeover?
I don’t recall anytime in American Presidential history where a VP has hovered so much behind a President.

There has never been a vice president in history who has had such a prominent role in the presidency as Harris.
Biden is scheduled to deliver his first prime-time address as president Thursday, which will focus on the Covid crisis. Later this month, he’ll hold the first press conference of his young presidency. He’s committed to making a still-unscheduled address to Congress.
And officials are busy preparing for a sprawling sales campaign designed to draw attention to the benefits of the Covid-relief package. Biden, first lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and others will hit the road to tout, among other things: the $1,400 checks, how billions of dollars in the bill will reopen schools, and the investments being made in increasing the numbers of vaccinations.
The emphasis on Harris shouldn’t surprise the American people considering Biden’s mental state continues to decline.
Conservative pundit Dan Bongino, who is also a former Secret Service agent, told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that his sources inside the agency are telling him Joe Biden’s mental state is deteriorating to the point it is becoming very problematic.
Bongino began the segment by noting his shock over a report this week that House Democrats are pushing Biden to relinquish full control over the nuclear launch codes.
“When the producer sent this to me I had to read it twice…I thought, is this ‘The Babylon Bee,’ ‘The Onion,'” Bongino said, referencing two of the Internet’s top satire news sites. “I’m not kidding, I thought, is he trying to be funny about this?”
The former Secret Service agent and NYPD officer went on to recall how, before the November election, he had been told by agency sources that Biden’s mental acuity was rapidly deteriorating.
“Not a joke and not hyperbole – I’m hearing from people close to the situation that Biden’s cognitive decline is rapidly worsening and is becoming increasingly difficult to mask. The Democrats are going to have to make a decision soon,” Bongino tweeted.
Bongino said it gave him “no joy in saying this and I mean that: [Biden] is in real significant trouble. And listen to me — everyone around him, everyone knows it. Everyone knows it. This is the scandal — that they’re not telling you how bad his condition is.
For months before the Nov. 3 election, political observers frequently commented that Biden’s mental acuity had declined significantly since he left office as vice president in January 2017.
Bongino went on to say that even sources he has outside of the Secret Service but who are still in Biden’s orbit know that he’s not just “lost a step” but he’s lost the ability to function adequately.
“It’s not a mystery. It’s the worst-kept secret in the White House,” Bongino said.
