Even CNN hates Kamala Harris

5

The White House on Monday scrambled to support Vice President Kamala Harris from a damaging CNN report about her struggles.

The report detailed White House aides were exasperated with Harris and her team and the vice president felt unsupported by President Joe Biden’s team.

“For anyone who needs to hear it, the Vice President is not only a vital partner to the president 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,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki wrote on Twitter after the story broke online Sunday night.

On Monday morning, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield emphasized Psaki’s point on social media.

“Just in case you missed it, let me leave this right here,” she wrote.

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain on Monday pointedly shared a social media post calling Harris “capable and smart” and “funny and kind.”

The sudden reaction to the CNN story from the White House prompted mockery, especially after Psaki claimed Harris helped deliver on broadband and actually succeeded handling the migration crisis.

In the CNN story, Harris’ allies complained the West Wing left Harris unprotected from political attacks, as some supporters noted they were much more supportive of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg who was attacked for being on paid leave for months after he and his husband Chasten got twins.

The political tensions between Harris and Biden’s teams have  been simmering in the first nine months of the Biden presidency as Harris struggled with her role on handling the border crisis.

Biden pointedly tried to acknowledge Harris after celebrating the passage of his infrastructure bill, even though he did not let her speak.

“I feel — I used to stand there and have to listen to the President,” Biden noted. “She’s got to stand and listen to the President, but she deserves an enormous amount of the credit.”

The Harris team appeared upset the story was breaking after her trip to France, calling it “unfortunate” and complained that “some in the media are focused on gossip” instead of their success.

Both Biden and Harris are expected to celebrate the passage of the $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill at a signing ceremony at the White House on Monday.

    That bill is another nail in our Constitution’s coffin.

    Who is Kamala Harris and how did this country come to have man on man married couples having titled positions in our countries capitol. What has this fu-king country come to. Titled homosexuals buying children to raise as their own. What kind of values do you think will be imposed on these children. I wonder if the twins are Haitian? I don’t care what you have to do President Trump but please come back.

    I wonder if the French are as repulsed by her as Americans are. Its difficult to find one redeeming quality of hers, unless of course you are Willy Brown. Chalk her up to one more of Joe Biden’s mistakes.

    Maybe if Harris went to the southern border and saw with her own eyes what was going on, her aides would not feel slighted. After all Biden DID promote her as being in charge of the southern border

    I don’t recall Kamala’s mission was to find out “why” all these illegals are leaving their countries and storming the U.S. border. That was ‘her’ idea of taking charge. Any sane person knows “why” they’re coming. If anyone enters here illegally, everything is free. They also get free money, even though they’ve never paid a dime into this countries government. They would be fools ‘not’ to come here. Kamala Harris’ job was to stop the influx of illegals. But, then where would the Democrats get enough votes to win the next election? Hmm….
