Kamala Harris says she does not aspire to a seat on the US Supreme Court

Vice President Kamala Harris’ bumpy first year in office has led some to speculate as to whether she will ever win an elected office again, and according to a recent interview, she does not see a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court as something that is on the cards either, as the Washington Examiner reports.

Speaking with Margaret Brennan of CBS, the question of a potential future on the high court was posed to Harris, and the vice president indicated her desire to have a more hands-on role in the creation of policy, saying, “right now, I like what I’m doing.” WATCH:

Another unexpected revelation from the CBS interview was that Harris considers herself a devotee of electric vehicles and the innovation they represent, saying, “I’m a geek when it comes down to it, and what we have the capacity to do.”

Despite her self-described “geek” status when it comes to electric vehicles, she recently took part in a demonstration of this category of cars and, during the event, reportedly appeared unfamiliar with or confused by the actual process required to charge them, holding onto the charging cable as if it were a the nozzle on a gas pump at a filling station.

Having made it clear that she does not have a future as a Supreme Court justice or an electrical vehicle technician, Harris undermined her qualifications for the job she currently holds as well as the presidency to which she presumably aspires during the same interview with Brennan, when she was asked about what she views as the nation’s most serious national security challenge.

“Frankly, one of them is our democracy. And that I can talk about because that’s not classified,” Harris began, adding, “there is I think no question in the minds of people who are foreign policy experts that the year 2021 is not the year 2000.”

Not content to stop the bleeding by ending that disjointed stream of consciousness, Harris continued, “And we are embarking on a new era where the threats to our nation take many forms, including the threat of autocracies taking over and having outsized influence around the world. And so I go back to our point about the need to fight for the integrity of our democracy. In addition, it is obviously about what we need to do in the climate crisis.”

As the Wall Street Journal editorial board pointed out in response, “in a world of growing risks from China, Russia, Iran, cyber attacks and hypersonic weapons, the Vice president names U.S. democracy and climate change as America’s most important security challenges. Yikes.” Given her answers to such a critical question, let’s hope Harris soon adds the presidency to the list of jobs ill-suited to her distinct set of occupational preferences.
