Reports surface about first lady Jill Biden’s profanity-laced attack on Vice President Kamala Harris when the now-vice president was running against her husband in the primaries, according to Breitbart News.
Jill Biden was reportedly furious with Harris after the candidate attacked Joe Biden for his history on race and public housing:
“There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day. That little girl was me,” Harris said during the campaign when she announced that Biden’s views were offensive to herself and other people of color.
Jill Biden didn’t take too kindly to the attack and spoke about it to some of her close supporters on the phone, saying that her husband was not racist:
“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?” Jill Biden said according to multiple people on the call. “Go f— yourself.”
Harris was able to get some traction over the race issue and saw a quick uptick in support after that campaign push, but was eventually defeated by Biden in the primaries.
The highest-ranking woman in the country didn’t get out of the race before spending an estimated $25 million on her bid for the White House, however.
The pair appear to have patched things up, however, with Biden eventually tapping the former California senator to be his running mate. The now-vice president said once Biden won the primary that she was “1000 percent in support of Joe Biden.”
“It was a debate,” Harris laughed during an interview a few months after when asked about the issue. “It was a debate. It was a debate. Literally it was a debate. It was called a debate. Everyone traveled to the debate. There were journalists at the debate.”
