Vice President Kamala Harris is a sinking ship. The media knows it, America knows it, and now even her White House staff has to face the music.
As the Vice President’s approval numbers sink to historic lows and reports of a toxic work environment and a stalemate with the President have become public Kamala’s communications director, Ashley Etienne has thrown in the towel and announced her resignation.
Fox News reports:
“Ashley is a valued member of the Vice President’s team, who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration,” a White House official told Fox News. “She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”
Etienne, a longtime top adviser to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., served as Pelosi’s communications director twice, sandwiched in between time in the Obama White House.
The White House has struggled in recent days in the wake of a recent scathing CNN report that outlined frustration and dysfunction in Harris’ office. ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos asked the vice president if she feels “misused or underused” by the Biden administration. She laughed in response.
“No, I don’t,” the vice president said.
Will Etienne be the only one to leave the sinking ship? Probably not. Tell us what you think in the comments below.
