- A Facebook post that suggests former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has replaced Vice President Kamala Harris is unfounded with nothing to back it up.
"Rumor!" the title of a recent Facebook post says. "Hillary replaces Kamala Harris!"
This post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.)
The video itself offers no credible evidence to support this claim, and the person who can be heard talking goes on to make other false claims, including that former President Donald Trump was recognized by the military as its commander in chief in March.
There’s nothing to suggest that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is poised to step in for Harris. Away from the federal government, she is hosting a podcast, promoting a new book, and, recently getting choked up on MasterClass reading the victory speech she had written in case she won the 2016 presidential election.
Harris, when asked about it by reporters, has denied that there’s any bad feelings between herself and the White House.
"I’m very, very excited about the work that we have accomplished," she said in a recent interview. "But I am also absolutely clear-eyed that there is a lot more to do, and we’re going to get it done."
We rate this post Pants on Fire.
