The White House is now in damage control mode over new leaks about Vice-President Kamala Harris, her unpopularity and alleged conflicts between her staff and Biden.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Amid numerous reports across even the mainstream media that President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are at odds and the veep’s aides are disgruntled, the White House is circling the wagons.
In response White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was forced to issue a desperate sounding plea on Twitter:
For anyone who needs to hear it. @VP is not only a vital partner to @POTUS but a bold leader who has taken on key, important challenges facing the country—from voting rights to addressing root causes of migration to expanding broadband.
— Jen Psaki (@PressSec) November 15, 2021
Psaki’s tweet came after a CNN article on Sunday that suggested there was deep “dysfunction” within the vice president’s office. Top Harris staffers jumped in, too.
“But, with many sources speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the situation more frankly, they all tell roughly the same story: Harris’ staff has repeatedly failed her and left her exposed, and family members have often had an informal say within her office. Even some who have been asked for advice lament Harris’ overly cautious tendencies and staff problems, which have been a feature of every office she’s held, from San Francisco district attorney to U.S. Senate,” the reporters wrote.
“Joe Biden’s relationship with Kamala Harris is in crisis, with her staff furious that she is being ‘sidelined,’ while the president’s team are increasingly frustrated by how she is playing with American public,” The Daily Mail reported. “Harris’ approval rating has plunged even further than Biden’s in recent months, with rumors swirling that the president is considering appointing her to the Supreme Court as a backdoor method of selecting a new VP.”
According to one recent poll, Harris’ current favorability with the American public is currently abysmal, clocking in at a stunningly bad 28 percent.
