There is a small “rumor” swirling around D.C. in recent months, according to Daily Wire.
Harris’ approval numbers have hit rock bottom at only 28 percent, according to a new poll from USA Today.
As her numbers plummet, the rumor in D.C. claims Joe Biden “is considering appointing her to the Supreme Court as a backdoor method of selecting a new VP.”
Harris’ ratings are a historic low for any modern vice president, even lower than those of former Vice President Dick Cheney.
“Beyond just her disapproval as vice president, this also strikes against her bigger goal of gaining the Democratic presidential nomination in 2024,” Western Journal notes.
CNN recently released a critical report of Vice President Kamala Harris that suggested “dysfunction” within her team.
The report said the White House is growing increasingly frustrated with “entrenched dysfunction and lack of focus” from Harris and her staff.
CNN interviewed nearly three dozen current and former staffers for Harris, administration officials, donors, advisers and Democratic Party operatives.
Their remarks were not good for Harris. “Harris is struggling with a rocky relationship with some parts of the White House, while long-time supporters feel abandoned and see no coherent public sense of what she’s done or been trying to do as vice president,” CNN reported.
This CNN report has “sent shockwaves across Washington, D.C.,” Daily Wire notes.
Inside the CNN article, here’s the passage that caught everyone’s eye:
“Defenders and people who care for Harris are getting frantic. When they’re annoyed, some pass around a recent Onion story mocking her lack of more substantive work, one with the headline, “White House Urges Kamala Harris To Sit At Computer All Day In Case Emails Come Through.”
When they’re depressed, they bat down the Aaron Sorkin-style rumor that Biden might try to replace her by nominating her to a Supreme Court vacancy. That chatter has already reached top levels of the Biden orbit, according to one person who’s heard it,” said the piece.
Coming to Harris’ defense, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki spoke out on Twitter about Harris amid her sinking poll numbers.
“For anyone who needs to hear it. @VP is not only a vital partner to @POTUS but a bold leader who has taken on key, important challenges facing the country—from voting rights to addressing root causes of migration to expanding broadband,” Psaki tweeted.

This remark from Psaki comes after the CNN report.
Harris’ office has also appeared to respond to CNN. Senior adviser and chief spokesperson for Harris, Symone Sanders, wrote, “It is unfortunate that after a productive trip to France in which we reaffirmed our relationship with America’s oldest ally and demonstrated U.S. leadership on the world stage, and following passage of a historic, bipartisan infrastructure bill that will create jobs and strengthen our communities, some in the media are focused on gossip — not on the results that the President and Vice President have delivered.”

More from Daily Wire:
The notion isn’t that odd, though. Democrats immediately began talking about “packing the court” — meaning to add more justices to the Supreme Court — shortly after Biden took office.
In April, Biden announced he had created a commission to study packing the court. The New York Times reported that Biden made the decision to move forward with studying the partisan plan because he was “under pressure from activists.”
But the move is so toxic that even socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) doesn’t support it, warning that if Democrats do so, then “the next time the Republicans are in power they will do the same thing.”
