Politico: Kamala Harris is a C***

No, not "cop." That's only three letters.

Breaking news, huh?

Yesterday there was a story that suggested that Harris would find a challenger in 2024 by Pete Bootiejudge.

And then suddenly, the knives come out for the first time against Queen Kamala.

This story seems source to Kamala Harris' own staff. My speculation is that they've been longing for the media to report on Kamala Harris' nastiness and chaotic nature for years; it's only now, when the media is discussing a Harris vs. Bootyjudge primary, that they'll actually report a story they've had for more than a year.

The handling of the border visit was the latest chaotic moment for a staff that’s quickly become mired in them. Harris’ team is experiencing low morale, porous lines of communication and diminished trust among aides and senior officials....

In interviews, 22 current and former vice presidential aides, administration officials and associates of Harris and Biden described a tense and at times dour office atmosphere. Aides and allies said Flournoy, in an apparent effort to protect Harris, has instead created an insular environment where ideas are ignored or met with harsh dismissals and decisions are dragged out. Often, they said, she refuses to take responsibility for delicate issues and blames staffers for the negative results that ensue.

A leftwing feminist woman avoiding taking responsibility and blaming others?

This all comes as a complete surprise to me.

"People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses and it's an abusive environment," said another person with direct knowledge of how Harris' office is run. "It's not a healthy environment and people often feel mistreated. It's not a place where people feel supported but a place where people feel treated like s---."

...

It's pronounced enough that members of the president's own team have taken notice and are concerned about the way Harris' staffers are treated.

Can't wait to hear her cackle off questions about this.

Just kidding, there will be no questions about this.

Okay, Politico did actually ask about this.

The answer from Harris' camp? All the criticism from Harris' staffers of Harris and her chief of staff Tina Fluornoy, who are largely female and "of color," are due to...

Well, I'll let you guess.

Harris and Flournoy's defenders also note that women in power--Black women in particular--are subjected to standards that men often don't have to clear. A tough and demanding office environment may be seen as a virtue for one and a sign of disorder and lack of leadership acumen for another.

Yes men have it easy. I mean, we're never expected to perform and judged on that performance. And of course men, particularly white men, can always play the "You're just being meeeean to me because I'm white and male" card.

I mean, it's just such a cliche how often white men get to play that card to excuse their failures.

This is what I mean when I say "The media has had this story for decades, but refused to report it."

Harris' staff struggles are nothing new. People who have worked for her in the past describe days as "managed chaos." "The boss' expectations won't always be predictable," said one former Harris Senate aide.

Politico attempts to put this in the kindest possible way -- claiming that Harris exudes calm and order when things are going well.

But when things get challenging, her "aides feed her anxieties," and she goes to brittle, bitch pieces.

"When people feed her anxieties, all of that goes away," said another Harris friend, "exacerbating the bad tendencies."

So she's a Stronk Empowered Wahman who can only keep her shit together if you protect her in a reinforced steel Hug Box.

So when she's not tested, she passes the test. When she's actually tested, she fails.

Got it. We've seen a lot of that type lately, huh?

This too is the story of Obama.
