Kamala Harris may have just let out a Freudian slip – and if anyone's upset by it, it won't be her political opponents.
The California senator, who is running to be Joe Biden’s vice president should the pair win the election in November, seemed to momentarily place herself at the top of the ticket in an odd moment during a virtual round table Monday, encouraging voters to cast their ballot for “A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden.”
“A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States…the Biden/Harris administration will provide access to $100 billion in low-interest loans and investments from minority business owners,” Harris awkwardly claimed.

The odd slip-up is made even more awkward by the fact that Harris at one point ran against Biden for the Democratic nomination, even insinuating in one debate that Biden had been in favor of racial segregation and later claiming that she believed Tara Reid, a woman who had come forward to accuse Biden of sexual assault when he was a senator. Her apparent concerns that Biden may be a racist sexual abuser were quickly set aside when Harris accepted Biden's offer to be his running mate, a move his past comments had suggested was because Harris was both black and a woman.
Harris' mix-up between herself and the man who is actually running for president is also in line with many concerns on the right over Biden's age, mental acuity and physical ability to do the job of POTUS, with many saying that a vote for Biden is really a vote for Harris if and when Biden becomes unable to hold the office.
