Everyone knew Kamala was crazy, but we didn’t know just how whacked out she actually is.
Former staffers of the vice president are still traumatized by their experience working with the former California Senator Kamala Harris. Many have anonymously expressed their concern and “terror” that she may be the next pick to become the president of the United States.
It’s a nightmare scenario for some former Harris staffers who watched nervously as their former boss ascended the national political stage. More than a dozen staffers have spoken to reporters under the condition of total anonymity. They fear Kamala’s wrath.
Many of the former staffers remain fans of Biden, but they didn’t want to see a boss with whom they’d had a bad experience become the Democratic Party’s next leader. Biden isn’t getting any older and his dementia has definitely and very obviously taken over his ability to utter even one coherent sentence. Knowing this, the former staffers worry that he will not seek reelection — or worse.
The staffers do agree, however, that Harris made her former workplace “toxic” with a “reactionary” attitude that fomented “a sense of paranoia in that office that you never knew when she was going to snap at you,” with one former staffer even telling reporters that Harris sometimes made staffers “so stressed out that they were making themselves sick.”
Another reportedly told reporters that they suffered a sort of post-traumatic stress episode from Harris’ emergence onto the national stage and that “they sought therapy to ‘resolve trauma from the on-the-job abuse’ after Harris was selected as Biden’s running mate in 2020.”
It was reported in separate stories that Harris’ management style became “abusive” and tyrannical.
“People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses and it’s an abusive environment,” said one person with direct knowledge of how the vice president’s 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***.”
The Biden White House engaged in pointed damage control in reference to the reporting, and commentators even went so far as to suggest that criticism about Harris’ management style is sexist.
