Kamala Harris isn’t too pleased with the mainstream media for sharing her “soundbites” in its coverage of her.
Rather than airing the substance of her actions, the media, she says, prefers to ignore her “depth and thought.”
Harris and her team have struggled with public appearances since she first set foot into the White House as the Vice President, and she has been subject to relentless criticism from all quarters over her seeming inability to handle crisis after crisis, namely the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border.
According to the Gallup poll, Harris is the least popular vice president since the 1970s a mere six months into her term. The potential “future president”, as The Telegraph reported over the weekend, is now “underwater” as her popularity continues to sink.
“The White House intends to deploy her only in certain areas to campaign ahead of next year’s midterm congressional elections, and will attempt to raise her profile by sending her on foreign trips in the coming months,” the Telegraph reported. “The disappointing first months of her term have also worried long-term strategists, many of whom had hoped she would run for president as early as the next elections.”
“Part of my frustration is the way that this system rewards sound bites” instead of “depth and thought,” Harris said in a new interview with the Atlantic.
In The Atlantic’s report, journalist Peter Nicholas reported that Harris was “fed up” by the media’s portrayal of her role as vice president, but noted that Harris’ campaign used the soundbite “that little girl was me” during the Democratic presidential primaries in 2019 to attack her then-rival Joe Biden, who ultimately beat her.
During the interview, Nicholas asked Harris if she regretted her harsh criticism of Biden, whom she challenged over the issue of race when she brought up busing.
“There is no sunlight or daylight between he and I on the issue of race, on the history of racism in our country, and also what we need to do going forward to fight for equity based on race, gender, and everything else,” Harris responded.
As the Conservative Brief reported last week, Harris’ star continues to fall as she fails to achieve results again and again, and internal office strife, coupled with complaints from both current and former staffers about her notoriously “divaesque” personality, have brought the vice president low.
Enter 2021, when Harris’ mediocrity has once again reared its ugly head, from her incapability to handle the border crisis to the numerous reports from within her own office from former and current staffers that a notoriously “divaesque” Harris is hard to work with and does not have her priorities in check.
On that issue, Politico detailed how Harris’ office has been described by workers as “not a healthy environment.”
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.
While much of the ire is aimed at Harris’ chief, two administration officials said the VP herself also bears responsibility for the way her office is run. “It all starts at the top,” said one of the administration officials, who like others requested anonymity to be able to speak candidly about a sensitive matter.
Rather than face up to the problems plaguing her office or address criticism of her performance on the southern border, Harris has persisted in blaming the media’s coverage of her, as detailed in Breitbart.
Harris’ disdain for the press is so intense that she is reported to keep an “enemies list” of reporters and political operatives who get on her nerves.
