Long before presidential nominee Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris were BFFs, they were adversaries. In fact, Harris consistently did her best her demonize her now-running mate, criticizing him for past prejudiced views and even voicing support for women who accused the former vice president of unwanted touching.
Join us for a trip down memory lane, won’t you?
COTR Pro Tip: Don’t interrupt Senator Harris while she’s speaking – even if it’s in previously recorded videos. She REALLY gets fussy about that sort of thing.
Is it just us, ya’ll, or do Kamala Harris’ facial expressions fuel an urge within you to punch holes in drywall?
Anyway, here’s Senator Harris in 2019 informing CBS News political correspondent Ed O’Keefe that Joe Biden digs pro-segregationists:
Kamala Harris blasted Joe Biden last year for “Praising and coddling individuals who made it their life work and built their reputation off of segregation of the races in the United States.”

Harris: “Praising and coddling individuals who made it their life works and built their reputation off of segregation of the races in the United States. That’s a problem. I would not be a member of the United States Senate if those men that he praised had their way. I wouldn’t.”
And then there was that time during one of the (too many) Democrat primary debates of 2019 when Harris skewered Biden for past prejudiced views on bussing and his indirect praise two segregationist senators.
Harris: “… I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground. But I also believe, and it’s personal — it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country. And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing.”
And who could forget that time in April of 2019 at a campaign event in Nevada that Sen. Harris backed the so-called “Biden accusers.”
Harris: “I believe them and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it”
Seriously, ya’ll, Harris was consistently tearing Biden to shred for well over a year before she joined his campaign.
Well, here’s the good news for Harris: Biden is so advanced in his cognitive decline at this point that he probably can’t remember how much he and his running mate once hated each other. Hooray for senility!
