Jill Biden Said Kamala Harris Can ‘Go F— Herself’ After She Attacked Joe In First Debate, Book Claims

By

The relationship between the Bidens and Vice President Kamala Harris purportedly became messy after Harris — then Joe Biden’s opponent in the primary — came after him for his record on busing and his boasts of his relationships with segregationist senators, according to journalist Edward Isaac Dovere.

First lady Jill Biden even said Harris can “go f— herself” in a call with campaign donors, Dovere writes in his forthcoming book shared with Fox News, “Battle for the Soul,” to be published May 25.

It was after Joe Biden had reminisced in a speech on his early days in Washington, trying to emphasize his record as a deal broker, Dovere writes. He talked about his relationship with two holdout segregationists in the Senate.

“Well, guess what? At least there was some civility. We got things done,” Joe Biden said at the time. “We didn’t agree on much of anything. We got things done. We got it finished. But today, you look at the other side and you’re the enemy. Not the opposition, the enemy. We don’t talk to each other anymore.”

“I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland,” Joe Biden said as he briefly imitated the late senator’s southern drawl in July 2019.  “He never called me boy. He always called me son.”

“If the people he was talking about with such affection had their way, I would never have been able to be a United States senator,” Harris said to reporters two days after the debate in South Carolina.

Harris’ team told the then-candidate she “had to land hard on Biden” in the next debate, Dovere writes. Harris was apparently reluctant, as she’d developed a close relationship with the Biden family.

“She was searching for some way to condemn him for what he had said and done without attacking the man she liked and respected,” according to the book.
