(ConservativeInsider.org) – Every political advisor and press secretary understands how critical optics are to politics. So, when the official White House video feed cropped Vice President Kamala Harris out of a news conference this week, it spoke volumes. Americans from both sides of the aisle commented on the clear exclusion of the minority female second-in-command.
On Monday, November 29, President Joe Biden held a press conference to discuss the latest COVID-19 variant, Omicron. Just seconds into the briefing, the camera zoomed in on Biden and White House medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, excluding Harris from the shot, who was standing near the president. The camera stayed this way for most of the conference.
One American shared her opinion of what this could mean on Twitter:
— Marla Davis 🇺🇸🗽🥰♥️👠🙏#TRUMP2024TOSAVEAMERICA (@marla_j98) November 29, 2021
Recent reports detail a growing divide between President Biden and Harris, and this news conference may have confirmed those rumors. While the camera did briefly pan out to include Harris when Fauci approached the podium, it quickly cut her out yet again.
With this blatant omission, Americans could be watching the Democrats shift away from a future Harris presidential bid as the party looks for someone with higher approval ratings to fill Biden’s shoes should he choose not to run again in 2024.
