Kamala Harris Says She’s Ready to Take Charge Amid Biden’s Mental Concerns, ‘I am Ready to Serve’

In a recent interview, Vice President Kamala Harris expressed her readiness to lead the country in the face of growing concerns about President Joe Biden’s mental fitness.

These concerns were amplified after Special Counsel Robert Hur concluded in his criminal investigation that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials.”

While no charges were brought against the president, the report highlighted Biden’s difficulty remembering basic details about his life, including his time as vice president and the death of his son.

Following the report, Biden held a press conference to demonstrate his mental fitness for office.

However, the event only served to raise further alarm among top Democrats, as he yelled at reporters and struggled to recall important details.

A recent poll found that 86% of Americans believe Biden is too old to be president again, and 76% have concerns about his mental fitness.

When asked about voters’ concerns regarding Biden’s age and mental fitness, Harris responded, “I am ready to serve. There’s no question about that.”

She went on to say that everyone who sees her on the job “walks away fully aware of my capacity to lead.”

Jennifer Palmieri, who has worked for the Obama and Clinton administrations, as well as Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 campaign, noted that the special counsel’s report has brought Harris’ ability to serve into the spotlight, as she may be needed sooner rather than later.

With Biden’s electability in question, a recent Harvard CAPS / Harris poll found that if Biden decided not to run again, Harris would be the top choice among Democrat voters at 15%.

However, her popularity among the general public is questionable, as an NBC News poll from last year found that Harris was the lowest-rated vice president in the history of the survey, with a -17 rating.

As concerns about Biden’s mental fitness continue to grow, Harris’ readiness to step up and take charge has become a prominent topic of discussion.

While her ability to lead is a subject of debate, one thing is clear: Harris believes she is prepared to take on the role of president if the need arises.
