In a bombshell report, it was revealed that first lady Jill Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris do not have the best of relationships and are, in fact, locked in a bitter feud. The first lady's friendship with former FLOTUS Michelle Obama has been touted through the years much like the one between their respective husbands. But what is the relationship between Jill and Harris? 

The report titled, 'Exasperation and dysfunction: Inside Kamala Harris' frustrating start as vice president,' was published by CNN on Nov 14. The outlet discussed stories that reportedly came from “nearly three dozen former and current Harris aides, administration officials, Democratic operatives, donors and outside advisers — who spoke extensively to CNN — reveal a complex reality inside the White House.”

According to the report, the long list of grievances from the Harris camp ranged from the VP feeling “sometimes forgotten," to “not being put in positions to lead,” and “the administration ought to be using her more.” 

“Many in the vice president’s circle fume that she’s not being adequately prepared or positioned, and instead is being sidelined,” CNN reported. “The vice president herself has told several confidants she feels constrained in what she’s able to do politically. And those around her remain wary of even hinting at future political ambitions, with Biden’s team highly attuned to signs of disloyalty, particularly from the vice president.”

Ongoing feud between Jill Biden and Kamala Harris

It also talked about the fact that Harris and Jill, in particular, are locked in a bitter ongoing feud. “Few of the insiders who spoke with CNN think she’s being well-prepared for whichever role it will be,” the story told. “Harris is struggling with a rocky relationship with some parts of the White House, while long-time supporters feel abandoned and see no coherent public sense of what she’s done or been trying to do as vice president. Being the first woman, and the first woman of color, in national elected office is historic but has also come with outsized scrutiny and no forgiveness for even small errors, as she’ll often point out."

However, this is not the first time that Harris and Jill have been caught in a catfight. Even before the two of them stepped foot in the White House, then-future FLOTUS unleashed on then-presidential candidate Harris who was going up against her husband in the first Democratic presidential debate. In June 2019, after Joe Biden and Harris infamously clashed over Biden's position in the past on busing, Harris basically called him a ‘racist.'

This made Jill quite angry. “With what he cares about, what he fights for, what he’s committed to, you get up there and call him a racist without basis? Go f*** yourself,” Jill told Harris bluntly at the time, which was cited in a piece by Politico Magazine. When Jill was later confronted about her reported remark, her reaction was to give Harris a really awkward hug on camera. “That was two years ago. We’ve moved on from that,” Jill claimed at the time.

The piece has seen drawn a lot of reactions on Twitter which people speculating that Jill never really forgave Harris for 'racist' remark about the former's husband to whether the FLOTUS feels threatened by the VP. "Biden should've listened to his circle that suggested he select Rep. Karen Bass, Rep. Val Demings, or Rep. Tulsi Gabbard as his VP pick. He didn’t want her in the first place, especially after Kamala called him a racist at the debates. No way Jill Biden forgot that moment. #biden," one of them said, while another noted, "If there’s an issue it’s between Jill Biden and Kamala. Joe is just concentrating…trying not to mess his drawers." A third added, "WELL, ONE OF THE BIDENS MIGHT BE SMART ENOUGH TO DO THIS: The Bidens deliberately froze Kamala Harris’s pol career. @FLOTUS @DrBiden Her biggest handicaps, though, are that she’s not very talented, not very likeable, and not especially bright. @VP"

The next remarked "But the sooner she takes over, the more time she has to prove herself for 2024. Everyone knows Biden is a lame duck, I really think there is a cold war coup going on inside the White House with Kamala and staff v Jill Biden and his staff." Another pointed out, "The rift is with Jill Biden, Joe actually think Kamala likes him at least she did before 2020." One more quipped, "Jill Biden feels threatened by Kamala Harris. Little miss muffet loves being First Lady. After all, Jill has looked the other way while Joe got into the shower with daughter Ashley and stepson Hunter slept with his brother’s wife and his own underage niece. Quite the family!" A commenter tweeted, "I’d pay $59.99 for the PPV of Kamala Harris v. Jill Biden catfight." A person reacted with, "Kamala pissed off the wrong person- Jill Biden and Jill has it out for her. Perhaps Jill is pulling the strings for Biden and therefore controls what Kamala does and doesn’t do. More power to her. Kamala is an idiot for believing she would play an important role as V.P."
