Something either strange or silly is happening over in the Democratic Party, and no one is quire sure why.
Earlier this week, Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris piqued the interest of the political world when she referred to the hypothetical incoming administration that she would be apart of as the “Harris administration”, eschewing the colloquially understand emphasis that is normally placed on the President.
Twitter erupted over what was presumed to be a freudian slip, and the world was suddenly aware of the word jumble.
But then something peculiar happened:
Former Vice President Joe Biden pitched U.S. military veterans on the notion of a “Harris-Biden administration” on Tuesday afternoon during a campaign swing through Florida.
Biden, who has aroused concerns over his fitness for the presidency in recent weeks, told reporters in Tampa that a White House helmed by himself and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) would work to expand opportunities not only for veterans, but military families as well.
“It’s so much harder for military spouses to find good jobs and build their careers,” the Democrat nominee said. “We have to change that and we’re working on it… for example making it easier to carry your professional credentials with you, from one state to another, when your spouse moves.
“The Harris-Biden administration will relaunch that effort and make it easier for military spouses and veterans meaningful careers, to ensure teachers know how to support military children in the classroom, and to improve support for caregivers and survivors so much more than we do now,” the former vice president added.
This second slip could be a purposeful retelling of the narrative, however; one that was seized upon by some young intern in the campaign who floated the idea that their emphasis on Harris’ name could be construed as “woke”, thus netting them a few more votes from the radical left.
