A new book by NY Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns reveals tension between the Brandon regime and VP Kamala Harris. The Vice President reportedly wanted softball assignments and was angry when she was assigned the open border with Mexico rather than point person to the Nordic countries.
Kamala also thinks Brandon’s “white inner circle” looks down on her.
She sounds like a joy to be around.
The Daily Mail reported:
Kamala Harris wasn’t happy with Brandon appointing her to address the southern border crisis, wanting a more softball foreign policy assignment, and thinks the president’s ‘white inner circle’ looks down on her, according to claims made in a new book.
During an April meeting with Congressional Black Caucus leaders, Brandon praised Harris and said she would do ‘a hell of a job’ handling immigration.
‘The vice president corrected him at once,’ New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns wrote in their new upcoming book This Will Not Pass: Trump, Brandon, and the Battle for America’s Future.
The book also explains that the first minority and female vice president felt belittled by Brandon’s white staff.
‘Some of Harris’s advisers believed the president’s almost entirely white inner circle did not show the vice president the respect she deserved,’ they wrote.
‘Harris worried that Brandon’s staff looked down on her; she fixated on real and perceived snubs in ways the West Wing found tedious,’ they added, according to excerpts published by Politico on Tuesday.
Brandon tasked Harris with addressing immigration – and the vice president took her opportunities to share her dissatisfaction with the role.
According to the book, Harris’ aides felt that the task of addressing the southern border crisis, in any way, was politically undesirable and wanted the vice president to have a more softball foreign policy assignment – like overseeing relations with Nordic countries.
Kamala Harris also felt slighted by far-left Vogue magazine for picturing her in sneakers on their cover — despite the fact that her team picked her outfits for the photo shoot!
In the weeks before Inauguration Day, Harris was featured on an issue of Vogue, but the vice president was reportedly caught off-guard when a leaked image of the cover depicted her most casual look from the photo shoot, donning black converse and black skinny pants.
The photo, as the Vogue reporters wrote, portrayed ‘an approachable but less than grand depiction of the incoming vice president.’
Harris had been expecting a more stately-looking photo to make the cover, where she wore a powder blue suit with her arms crossed in front of her. ‘Harris was wounded. She felt belittled by the magazine, asking aides: Would Vogue depict another world leader this way?’ New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns write in their forthcoming book, ‘This Will Not Pass: Trump, Brandon, and the Battle for America’s Future.’
Still, it had been Harris’ staff that picked out her outfits, not the in-house team at Vogue.
