It seems that the many staffers who fled from Kamala Harris’s reportedly toxic work environment are finding success elsewhere. MSNBC has reportedly hired the Vice President’s former spokeswoman, Symone Sanders, to anchor a new weekend program.
The Hill reports:
“I’m a young woman, a young Black woman from the Midwest,” Sanders told the Times. “Yes, I do politics, but I’m also a consumer of pop culture. I watch the news, I check Twitter, but I’m also into ‘Real Housewives.’ I’m interested in reaching what I call the nonpolitical group chats, the discussions that are penetrating outside of Washington.”
Sanders left the White House at the end of last year after serving alongside Biden for three years, including a stint working as one of the top communications officials on his campaign. She previously worked on Sen. Bernie Sanders‘s (I-Vt.) 2016 presidential campaign.
“Symone has served honorably for 3 years,” a White House official told The Hill last month, adding Biden and Harris were “grateful for Symone’s service and advocacy.”
“I’m going to tell the truth, and sometimes the truth is critical,” she said. “This administration has its critics, just like everyone does — I have my critics — and we’re going to have those conversations.”
So far, MSNBC has not released any details about the upcoming program.
