Political strategist Dick Morris, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton, suggested on Sunday that Joe Biden's team is worried about Kamala Harris and her ability to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove the head of state from office.

As reported by Newsmax, Harris made the comments on the WABC 770 AM radio show The Cats Roundtable with John Catsimatidis.

According to Morris, a recent New York Times article on Harris sourced various leaks from Biden allies

Morris Claimed That Harris Could Try To Remove Biden

According to Morris, he is hearing rumors that Biden's fitness for the presidency is declining.

"That the dementia is really becoming noticeable and harder to control and harder to camouflage. I believe there may be a move coming to invoke the 25th Amendment against Biden and replace him with Harris.”

The theory that Biden will be replaced by Harris has been a longtime favorite in conservative circles.

Still, others, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, have pushed back on the dementia speculation swirling around the head of state.

Morris floated the idea that Biden's team is covertly attacking Harris to undermine her chances of taking power in the White House.

"Biden’s people are pushing back against it by shooting at Harris and saying that she’s not really ready to be president.”

Morris claimed that information in The New York Times' Biden story likely came from the president's camp.

The only reason for Biden and his allies to leak the information on Harris, he contended, is to try and prevent a "25th Amendment coup.”"

Harris Could Be The Democratic Party's Future Nominee

In an op-ed for The Hill, Keith Naughton argued that the Democratic Party is "stuck" with Harris as its nominee in 2024 or 2028.

Still, Naughton also argued that there is a current effort to undercut Harris, although he held back on claiming it is sprearheaded by Biden's camp.

"The knives are out, and whether it is elements of Team Biden throwing a shot across the bow or other Democrats unhappy with Harris’s heir-apparent status, it’s unmistakable that an effort to diminish Harris is underway."

Harris Recently Faced Scrutiny For Remarks On Rural America

Harris has faced scrutiny for numerous public comments.

Most recently, she was criticized for claiming tha rural Americans cannot "photocopy" their IDs, as The Inquisitr reported.

"Because in some people’s minds that means, well, you’re going to have xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove who you are.”

Many conservatives pounced on the remarks and suggested they show her disconnect from modern Americans.

Others suggested on Twitter that the remarks were not a big deal and claimed that some regions in rural America do not have enough photocopiers.
