Kamala Harris has broken her silence on the rumors swirling around Washington D.C. that relations with Joe Biden have taken a tumble.
Well, sort of.
With all of her media training and years as a politician, the Vice President knows too well not to divulge all the dirty White House secrets.
On Sunday, Kamala Harris appeared in a pre-recorded interview on “Face the Nation” to address some key impasses she and her older boss have run into since assuming office. Harris addressed concerns of fellow Democrats that she is being tasked with an impossible portfolio, saying that she is not being “set up to fail.”
In an interview with CBS’ Margaret Brennan, Brennan, quoting from fellow Democrats, asked Harris: “Do you think you’re being set up to fail?”
“No, I don’t believe I’m being set up to fail,” Harris replied in a “serious” voice.
“I’m the vice president of the United States,” she continued (a line she recently used in a contentious interview with Charlamagne the God).
“Anything that I handle is because it’s a tough issue, and it couldn’t be handled at some other level. And there are a lot of big, tough issues that need to be addressed, and it has actually been part of my lifelong career to deal with tough issues, and this is no different.”
Joe Biden gives Kamala the big girl assignments because she’s the all-important Vice President!
Brennan then pressed if part of the reason Harris was facing “scrutiny” was that she is a “woman” and a “minority” in office.
Of course she was asked that — it is CBS after all.
Surprisingly, however, Kamala doesn’t take the easy way out by blaming her multiple failures on her gender or skin color. It is almost 2022 but liberals seem to play the race and gender card at any given opportunity.
Harris replied that she’d “leave that for others to deal with. I have a job to do, and I’m going to get that job done.”
Despite Harris’ statement that she is not being set up to fail, insider reports from members of her staff assert that the work environment under the vice president is “abusive.”
“People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses and it’s an abusive environment,” a person familiar with how Harris runs her office said.
“It’s not a healthy environment and people often feel mistreated. It’s not a place where people feel supported but a place where people feel treated like s—.”
Earlier this year, key staffers Ashley Etienne, Harris’ communications director, and chief spokesperson Symone Sanders announced their departures. Sources reveal that other staffers are “eyeing the exits” as well.
Additional rumors have circulated revealing Joe Biden’s plan for Kamala after she failed to make any headway with the American people — a spot on the highest court.
She dispelled those rumors — and thank god because the last thing the Supreme Court needs is radical justice who failed the bar exam.
