Vice President Kamala Harris has apparently told her closest confidants that the negative news coverage concerning her and her performance in the office would be totally different if only she were a white male, said the New York Times.
Because, you know, there’s no possible way that the reason people dislike her has to do with her extremely poor performance in the role of vice president or anything.
Harris then told her friends that unmanageable issues, like the border crisis and voting rights, has created a number of difficulties for her.
Yes, folks, this woman, our vice president, is whining that her job is hard. Good grief.
“I think it’s no secret that the different things she has been asked to take on are incredibly demanding, not always well understood publicly and take a lot of work as well as a lot of skill,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg went on to say to the Times.
“You have to do everything except one thing, which is take credit,” he continued.
Harris supporters, such as Rep. Karen Bass, D-Calif., say the administration should have stood up for the vice president more aggressively amid negative media coverage.
“What the White House could’ve done is been clearer with the expectations of what was supposed to happen under her watch,” Bass, who is the former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, stated during a conversation with the Times.
In March, President Joe Biden put Harris in charge of the U.S. response to the influx of migrants that has overwhelmed the southern border.
Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, told the Times his experiences with Harris’ team had been disappointing. He said he never received a call back after his staff reached out after learning the vice president would be visiting the border.
“I say this very respectfully to her: I moved on,” Cuellar said to the Times. “She was tasked with that job, it doesn’t look like she’s very interested in this, so we are going to move on to other folks that work on this issue.”
“Harris’ standing among the public has remained relatively low. A recent Rasmussen Reports survey found that more than half of voters have a negative opinion of the vice president and don’t think she’s ready to take over if Biden leaves office,” the report said.
“Survey results showed that 57% of likely voters view Harris unfavorably, including 50% who have a very unfavorable impression. Only 39% have a favorable impression of Harris, including 19% who have a very favorable view of her,” the report continued.
