Americans are focusing on Joe Biden’s Vice Presidential selection process.
Given Biden’s declining mental capacity and age there is a good chance whoever Biden selects as his Vice President will end up running the country.
But this top VP contender saw their chances go down in flames with one terrible mistake.
Biden promised to pick a woman as his running mate.
Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth began to generate buzz given her Thai background and military service in Iraq.
However, a CNN interview destroyed her chances in just 30 seconds.
Duckworth responded to the President’s speech at Mt. Rushmore where Trump attacked left-wing mobs for trying to “cancel” America’s founders by declaring she was open to tearing down statues of George Washington.

Duckworth later tried to clean up this massive gaffe by falsely claiming the President was only focused on protecting monuments to Confederate Generals and that the rioters in the streets weren’t protesting George Washington.
“Donald Trump wants to continue honoring traitors who took up arms against us in the Civil War to protect their ability to enslave, sell & kill Black Americans. This has never been a debate about honoring the complex legacy of those who actually helped *build* our great nation,” Duckworth wrote.
But this lie fell flat for obvious reasons.
Duckworth cannot erase the fact that she went on national TV and declared her support for the mobs in the streets that are defacing monuments and tearing down statues.
