White House Instructs Fed Agencies To Say ‘Biden-Harris’ Administration, Report Says

"Press releases and other communications ... all exclusively refer to the Biden-Harris Administration, in lieu of only naming the president, which has been customary until now."

A leaked email that allegedly came from a top White House communications team member reveals that the Biden administration is instructing federal government agencies to refer to the Biden administration as the “Biden-Harris Administration.”

The email states, “Please be sure to reference the current administration as the ‘Biden-Harris Administration’ in official public communications,” with “Biden-Harris Administration” bolded, as Outspoken noted, adding, “The subtle move to diminish Biden was also reflected in the official Twitter account for the White House. The description for that account now reads, ‘Welcome to the Biden-Harris White House!’”

The Trump and Obama administrations’ Twitter accounts only referred to the president. Obama’s account description stated, “Follow for the latest from President Obama and his administration” while Trump’s read, “Welcome to @WhiteHouse! Follow for the latest from President @realDonaldTrump and his Administration.”

“Press releases and other communications from the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, and Veterans Affairs, and the Attorney General all exclusively refer to the Biden-Harris Administration, in lieu of only naming the president, which has been customary until now,” Outspoken pointed out.

Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell told Outspoken, “The fact that the White House is instructing federal agencies to replace ‘Biden’ with ‘Biden-Harris’ after less than 60 days is indicative of the struggle Joe Biden is already having being president. This is a signal that he can’t do the job alone.”

Last week, President Biden called Harris, “President Harris,” saying, “Now when President Harris and I took a virtual tour of a vaccination center in Arizona not long ago, one of the nurses on that, on that tour injecting people, giving vaccinations, said that each shot was like administering a dose of hope.”

In December, while discussing how they both had received the COVID-19 vaccine, Biden stated, “I took it to instill public confidence in the vaccine. President-elect Harris took hers today for the same reason.”

The movement to lionize Harris has already displayed itself in other ways; in early February, The Daily Wire reported that she would have a monument erected to her:

A monument commemorating Vice President Kamala Harris as the first woman of color elected to the nation’s second-highest office was installed in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., earlier this week. The portrait, which measures 6-by-6 feet and weighs 350 pounds, is made from a sheet of cracked glass meant to symbolize how Harris shattered the glass ceiling, according to The Associated Press.

“This will just be a wonderful visual emblem of this moment in time and hopefully people will reflect a little bit on all the barriers that have been broken by her election,” said Holly Hotchner, president and CEO of the National Women’s History Museum, a group that co-sponsored the display.
