It’s no secret Kamala Harris’s office has seen its fair share of issues over the past year. Kamala’s disappointing approval ratings coupled with a number of high-profile employee departures have wreaked havoc on her reputation and left her isolated amongst Democrats. Now, it seems things have gotten so bad that the vice president is desperate enough to employ congressman-turned-MSNBC host Joe Scarborough as an adviser.
The Daily Wire reports:
Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns, authors of “This Will Not Pass,” write that as her approval ratings plunged, “Harris began seeking out advice from beyond her inner circle, taking counsel from longtime veterans of the Washington scene like Rahm Emanuel, the Chicago mayor-turned-ambassador to Japan, and Joe Scarborough, the congressman-turned-MSNBC star.”
The writers say that Harris began to get desperate as her approval rating plummeted. She hit just 28%, according to a November poll of registered voters released by USA Today and Suffolk University.
“The authors note that by the end of President Joe Biden’s first year in office Harris was ‘as politically isolated as she had ever been,’ and ‘few Democrats had confidence’ in her ability to be the party’s standard bearer in 2024 or beyond,” the Washington Free Beacon wrote. “As a result, Harris has grown ‘impatient with her own aides,’ whom she blamed for ‘letting her down.’ The VP even ‘initiated an audit of her office to make it function better.’”
The latest report comes after a slew of staffers in the vice president’s office have called it quits.
The Post said she “is at least the ninth key official to depart the veep’s office since this past summer — joining director of digital strategies Rajun Kaur, director of advance Karly Satkowiak, deputy director of advance Gabrielle DeFranceschi, communications director Ashley Etienne, chief spokesperson Symone Sanders, director of press operations Peter Velz, deputy director of public engagement Vince Evans, and speechwriting director Kate Childs Graham.”
Will Kamala manage to salvage what’s left of her reputation or is it too late? One thing is for certain, the Democrat Party is ready to leave her behind.
