Whether or not Democrats and the White House want to admit it, it’s become crystal clear that Vice President Kamala Harris is in deep political trouble.
According to Fox News, upon the announcement that Harris’ chief spokesperson, Symone Sanders, announced her resignation, Fox News contributor Joe Concha summed up the situation best when he described her section of the White House as a “sinking ship.”
Notably, Sanders’ shock announcement was the second high-level Harris staffer to call it quits, as one of her comms directors announced her exit just prior to the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
“I guess when your boss’ approval ratings are at 28% and she’s polling even lower on her number one job, the U.S. southern border where migrants continue to flow over, two million passing over this year. I guess I would leave too, because this is a sinking ship,” Concha said recently.
Even more interesting is the fact that Sanders, upon damning reports that emerged earlier this year describing a toxic work environment in Harris’ office, chastised the people leaking the information, calling them “cowards.”
“People are cowards to do this, this way,” Sanders told Politico in a July report. “We are not making rainbows and bunnies all day. What I hear is that people have hard jobs, and I’m like, “welcome to the club.'”
It doesn’t take a political science degree to understand that Harris is perpetually plagued with inner-office issues, and coupled with the fact that she’s one of the most unlike vice presidents in modern U.S. history, along with embarrassingly low approval ratings, it’s crystal clear why her employees are running for the exits.
But common sense and logic haven’t prevented White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki from doing her best to spin the situation as if it’s no big deal.
“Working on a presidential campaign…and working in the first year of a White House is exciting and rewarding, but it is also grueling and exhausting,” Psaki told reporters in her attempt to downplay the crisis. “It’s all of those things at once.”
