HUH? Biden Email Says Kamala Harris Is The Best Person "To Lead This Nation Starting in 2021”

On Tuesday, former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden sent an interesting email to his supporters where he announced that he selected Senator Kamala Harris as his VP pick.
The former Vice President awkwardly said that he selected Harris as his VP pick because she is the best choice to "lead this nation starting in January 2021.” Isn't Joe supposed to be leading the nation if he is president?
“I’ve decided that Kamala Harris is the best person to help me take this fight to Donald Trump and Mike Pence and then to lead this nation starting in January 2021,” Biden said in the email.
Check out what Breitbart reported:
Critics have long speculated that Biden, who will turn 78 years old before the end of the year, and appears to be showing signs of age, would not be fully in charge of his own administration.
Biden himself told an audience in Iowa in January that he would need to pick a younger running mate who “would be able to take over immediately” because he was “an old guy” who might die in office.
Harris, 55, was once a fierce rival to Biden in the Democratic Party presidential primary, and attacked him at the first debate over his former ties to segregationists and his opposition to school busing.
She was taken apart by Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) a month later at the second debate over her record as a prosecutor.
Shortly after Biden announced that he was selecting Harris for his VP pick, the Trump campaign released an epic campaign ad against the pair.
The Trump campaign slammed Biden, calling Harris his “political living will,” adding that he is "not that smart."
The campaign gave Harris the nickname "Phony Harris."
Katrina Pierson with the Trump campaign released a statement shortly after Biden made the selection.
“Not long ago, Kamala Harris called Joe Biden a racist and asked for an apology she never received," Pierson slammed. "Clearly, Phony Kamala will abandon her own morals, as well as try to bury her record as a prosecutor, in order to appease the anti-police extremists controlling the Democrat Party. In her failed attempt at running for president, Kamala Harris gleefully embraced the left’s radical manifesto, calling for trillions of dollars in new taxes and backing Bernie Sanders’ government takeover of healthcare. She is proof that Joe Biden is an empty shell being filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left."
“Joe Biden is no moderate, and with Harris as his ‘political living will,’ he is surrendering control of our nation to the radical mob with promises to raise taxes, cut police funding, kill energy jobs, open our borders, and appease socialist dictators," she continued. "At the ballot box, Americans will resoundingly reject the abysmal failures of Biden-Harris in favor of the America First strength of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.”
During a press conference on Tuesday, President Donald Trump spoke out about the pick, saying that Harris was his "number 1 pick" for Joe Biden.
"She was my number 1 pick. She was, as they say, because hopefully they start college football soon - she was my #1 draft pick"
"I've been watching her for a very long time, and I'm surprised he picked her", Trump said.
