A rather explosive report hit this weekend regarding Kamala Harris on CNN.
Even though the piece highlighted growing frustrations among Harris and her staffers, the tone almost seemed as though it was a pitch for Joe to help out Kamala more.
However, that is not how it was perceived, with numerous White House staffers coming to Harris’ defense.
The piece was a then and now look at Harris’ life in politics.
The one aspect of the report that took center stage was the consistency throughout her career to relate to staffers.
On top of the usual problems for Harris, there is now the growing frustration that she is getting sidelined by Biden.
Eleni Kounalakis, the lieutenant governor of California and a longtime friend, stated, “It is natural that those of us who know her know how much more helpful she can be than she is currently being asked to be.
“That’s where the frustration is coming from.”
The report claims sexism and racism are coming from the right to hurt Kamala Harris, but that is hardly the case.
The attacks from the right are everything to do about her performance thus far and have nothing to do with her gender or race.
The two lines from the report that stuck out and seem to be the lines that the White House is concentrating on read, “The vice president herself has told several confidants she feels constrained in what she’s able to do politically.
“And those around her remain wary of even hinting at future political ambitions, with Biden’s team highly attuned to signs of disloyalty, particularly from the vice president.”
Prior to the CNN report, Harris’ husband, Doug Emhoff, tried to make excuses for Harris, stating, “One of the things I’ve learned from being married to Kamala Harris is that to be first in so many things is hard.
“She said once that breaking barriers involves breaking, and when you break something sometimes you get cut, and when you get cut, sometimes you bleed. … But it’s worth it.”
After the report, numerous White House staffers flocked to her defense.
Her spokesperson, Symone Sanders, kicked open the door…

Then White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defended Harris on Twitter…
For anyone who needs to hear it. @VP is not only a vital partner to @POTUS but a bold leader who has taken on key, important challenges facing the country—from voting rights to addressing root causes of migration to expanding broadband.

Deputy Press Secretary Sabrina Singh and Assistant Press Secretary Rachel Palermo also came to the defense of Harris after the report surfaced.
I stated long before Harris was ever named to the Biden ticket that she has failed at every level and is one of the most corrupt political officials of our time.
One need only look at her record working as a prosecutor, looking at the cases that she refused to prosecute, to know this woman has been corrupt her entire career.
Now she is being exposed on a much bigger stage.
With an approval rating of less than 28 percent, clearly, the American people are now finally realizing they made a big mistake by supporting this ticket.
