NEW YORK POST – Bygones appeared to be bygones at the White House Friday, with first lady Jill Biden getting chummy with Vice President Kamala Harris — days after a forthcoming book revealed Biden said Harris should “go f–k” herself for attacking her husband during the Democratic primaries.
The pair shared a maskless hug prior to a ceremony at which Biden presented the Medal of Honor to Army Col Ralph Puckett, a 94-year-old Korean War veteran.

The Golden State lawmaker was referencing Biden’s statements at a New York City fundraiser earlier this month when he recalled how he worked with Democratic Sens. James Eastland and Herman Talmadge, who were known segregationists, in the 1970s.
Numerous lawmakers have called Biden out for the statement, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and fellow 2020 hopeful Sen. Cory Booker.
Biden snapped back, claiming Harris was making a “mischaracterization of my position across the board.”
“I did not praise racists,” he said. “That is not true. No. 1. No. 2 — if we want to have this campaign litigated on who supports civil rights and whether I did or not. I’m happy to do that” … Click here to read more.
