President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ dispute is the buzz of Washington, DC, and they aren’t even attempting to disguise it anymore.
For the first time in almost a week, the two reunited for a photo op in a DC soup kitchen, where they assisted in the preparation of meals for the less fortunate. The president, though, appeared to snub Harris during the visit, according to The New York Post.
Biden made no attempt to demonstrate any fondness for his VP in front of the cameras after Harris allies slammed Biden to CNN last week for giving her tough jobs, such as handling the border crisis, and accused the West Wing of giving her less support than white members of the administration.
When asked by a reporter what he was grateful for, Biden put an arm around DC Central Kitchen chef Dawain Arrington — who was standing to the president’s left with Harris at Biden’s right — and said, “The people I’m standing next to are what I’m thankful for. He got up. He was knocked down, but he got up.”
Moments earlier, first lady Jill Biden directed Harris to a spot next to her husband, but the president didn’t appear to greet his second-in-command.
“Come on, Kamala!” Jill Biden said, pointing the vice president to a tray of green beans that the VP was put in charge of scooping.
“I’m here!” Harris responded gleefully as she approached.
