Kamala Harris’s father may not attend the inauguration, despite living nearby

It appears that Kamala Harris’s troubled relationship with family may extend to inauguration day.

The Washington Examiner reports:

When Kamala Harris is sworn in as the first female and first black vice president of the United States next week, her Washington, D.C.-based father may not be in attendance.

Harris’s father lives barely a mile from the White House, two miles from One Observatory Circle, and under three miles from the U.S. Capitol, where the future vice president will be sworn in.

Harris said last year that she would be “thinking about” her mother on Inauguration Day, but according to the Washington Post, her transition team does not know if her father will be joining in the celebrations.

Donald Harris is an economics professor, formerly from Stanford University.

He may be on the outs with Harris due to an op-ed he wrote during Harris’s divisive primary campaign.

In one of her many flubs during that campaign, Harris joked about using marijuiana on a radio show, invoking an ugly old stereotype by saying “half my family is from Jamaica. Are you kidding me?”

Writing in Jamaica Global Online, Harris’s father denounced her remarks as a “travesty.”

“My dear departed grandmothers (whose extraordinary legacy I described in a recent essay on this website), as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation, and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics,” he wrote.

“Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.”

It’s not hard to imagine that didn’t go over well in the Harris campaign. Regardless of the reason, Harris and her father don’t appear to be on good terms, which is a sad and strange state of affairs for anyone, much less a sitting vice-president.
