In a COVID-19 crisis press conference, US President-elect Joe Biden referred to Kamala Harris, his vice-president, as “President-elect Harris”.

Biden was making a speech urging Trump to call on Americans to take the COVID-19 vaccine, and also wear masks.

“I hope the president will clearly and unambiguously urge all Americans to take the vaccine once it’s available,” president-elect Biden said.

“I took it to instill public confidence in the vaccine. President-elect Harris took hers today for the same reason,” Biden said.

This isn’t the first time Biden and Harris perked some ears when referring to the future White House.

On the campaign trail, Biden said Harris, 56, would be ready to lead “from day one,” while Harris referred to the incoming White House team as the “Harris administration” while discussing economic plans during a roundtable.

“A Harris administration,” she said, before quickly correcting it, “together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States.

It should be recalled that 78-year-old Joe Biden, being a presidential candidate, announced that he was running for the Senate. And during a speech in Philadelphia, he only remembered the name of his granddaughter from the third time

In early December, Joe Biden joked about his relationship with Kamala Harris, saying that that under certain circumstances he’d fake an illness and resign.

“It’s a matter of, the thing – we are simpatico on our philosophy of government. Sympatico on how we want to approach these issues that we’re facing. And when we disagree, it’ll be just like so far, it’s been just like when Barack and I did. It’s in private, she’ll say ‘I think you should do A, B, C or D,’ and I’ll say ‘I like A, I don’t like B and C, and s’go OK…’

“And like I told Barack, if there’s a fundamental disagreement we have based on a moral principle, I’ll develop some disease and say I have to resign.”

Biden then goes on to gush over Kamala’s credentials – saying “The great thing is she has a background in the Senate on intelligence, the intelligence community, she has a background in the Senate on a whole range of things that are gonna be pertinent to what we have to do.”

“It’s a matter of who takes what, when.”
