Anyone who has seen the unlikable, grating public persona of Kamala Harris can probably guess that she’s not exactly a pleasure to be around in private. If that’s what you thought, a new report from Politico will confirm your suspicions.
In all fairness to Harris, it is based entirely on anonymous sources and some of those sources are pretty clearly friends or donors to Harris who are unhappy that she is ignoring them. The really interesting, albeit not surprising, part are the complaints of her staffers,
According to Politico:
In interviews, 22 current and former vice presidential aides, administration officials and associates of Harris and Biden described a tense and at times dour office atmosphere. Aides and allies said Flournoy, in an apparent effort to protect Harris, has instead created an insular environment where ideas are ignored or met with harsh dismissals and decisions are dragged out. Often, they said, she refuses to take responsibility for delicate issues and blames staffers for the negative results that ensue.
…“People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses and it’s an abusive environment,” said another person with direct knowledge of how Harris’ office is run. “It’s not a healthy environment and people often feel mistreated. It’s not a place where people feel supported but a place where people feel treated like s—.”
…But for some of the people who know Harris best, it’s become an all-too-familiar pattern for a politician who has churned through several iterations of staff on her rise and took office with a team almost entirely new to her.
Just six months in, some of those aides in the Office of the Vice President said they are eyeing other employment opportunities. Others have left already.
…Harris’ staff struggles are nothing new. People who have worked for her in the past describe days as “managed chaos.” “The boss’ expectations won’t always be predictable,” said one former Harris Senate aide.
…The morale level for current Harris staffers is “rough” and in many ways similar to the failed presidential campaign and her Senate office, according to the former Senate aide, who is in touch with current Harris staffers.
This report comes following two of Harris’ top travel aides resigning last week.
Politico’s report doesn’t paint a pretty picture, but Harris is not a particularly likable person and liberals are notoriously sensitive. Put all that together and it’s probably a miserable environment, which brings up an interesting point. Kamala Harris is so naïve to think that we can fix nations in South America with our aid to such an extent that their citizens will stop coming here illegally. In the interim, she wants to radically reshape the entire United States. Meanwhile, she can’t even effectively run her own office. This is liberalism in a nutshell.
