Hollywood liberal Bill Maher ripped into Kamala Harris on his show “Real Time” last night, calling on Joe Biden to dump her as vice president because she’s a “bad politician.”
Maher said he wouldn’t be surprised if President Biden replaced Harris on the ticket in 2024 because “she’s just not very popular anywhere.”
“Once you have that real estate, and you wake up in the White House, and your office is the Oval, I just don’t think you give it up,” Maher said.
“It’s very hard to take away the nomination from the president, a sitting president.
“What I could see is replacing the vice president.
“Because she’s just not very popular anywhere.
“And it didn’t seem to work out,” he said.
“And, I don’t know, that’s been done before on a ticket.”
“I just think she’s a bad politician.
“I think she’s a very bright person, but I don’t know- I can see them doing that because a lot of the problem with ‘Biden being old’ is- ‘oh, if he dies, then you’re going to get this person’.”

CNN contributor Van Jones defended Harris, suggesting she hasn’t “found her footing” yet as VP but that she “wouldn’t be a weight on the ticket.”
However, Atlantic staff writer Caitlin Flanagan agreed with Maher, pointing to how former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (DHI) dismantled Harris during the Democratic primary debates.
“That was the end” of Harris’s presidential hopes, Flanagan told Maher.
“In addition, for some reason, an off-putting person, she also has, I think, a lot of baggage that wouldn’t do well under a lot of scrutiny,” Flanagan said.
“Here’s the problem with the Democratic party, they’re so boxed in by identity politics that you cannot conceive of a Democratic ticket that doesn’t have a woman, a person of color on it.
“And pretty soon you’re going to line up behind that gay, Latino, and you’re going to have to have, you know, a deaf Eskimo,” he said.
