Harris sticks up for Biden in wake of special counsel report

Vice President Kamala Harris says the special counsel report, which declared Joe Biden an "elderly man with poor memory," was "clearly politically motivated."

Harris believes that the report's findings are unfounded and intended to sway public opinion, and she was forced to work hard at defending the commander-in-chief on television.

Harris argues that the special counsel report's characterization of Biden's memory fails to acknowledge his extensive experience and proven track record in public service.

She emphasized that the report's allegedly political motivations undermine its credibility and should be critically examined by the public.

Kamala's comments

The vice president made her comments during a recent interview on MSNBC, during which she said, "The way that the president's demeanor in that report was characterized could not be more wrong on the facts and clearly politically motivated."

Democratic Response

Democrats are enraged by the special counsel report, which rekindled old concerns about the memory and cognitive abilities of Biden, thereby exacerbating a controversy that could prove to be the party's greatest political liability in November, as The Hill reported.

Special counsel Robert Hur argued in a 388-page report that a jury would be unlikely to convict Biden for his handling of classified documents. This would ordinarily be a resounding relief for a struggling incumbent praying for good news.

However, Hur further characterized the president as "a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory," a characterization that infuriated a significant portion of Biden's party and propelled a news narrative that the White House is at an absolute loss to reverse.

Hur's remarks were seized by Republicans, who used them to criticize Biden's intelligence and age, whereas Democrats deemed his words highly politicized and inaccurate.

“It is really concerning and points to a way bigger problem within how these two men are covered,” said Jon Reinish, a Democratic strategist, speaking to media characterizations of Biden and former President Donald Trump.

“The scrutiny and the coverage on whatever Biden’s gaffes are is 10,000 times what the scrutiny and the toughness and calling out are when Donald Trump rambles incoherently, mashes facts and comes across as if he has no grasp on reality," Reinish lamented.
