(CBrief) – The painfully unfunny Vice President Kamala Harris told, what she believed, was a comical story but what it really did was highlight the ineptitude of her staff. She was speaking to Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show” this week when she detailed “one of those moments” when her job was like the television show “Veep.”

“There are bits of it that are actually quite accurate,” she said to the host about her job mirroring the television show.

“Last week, my team, we were having long days as usual, and a member of my team decided to do something really sweet for me,” she said. “I was out of my office in the West Wing. I was having a meeting across the street, and we’re walking back toward my office, and he said, ‘I need to tell you something.’”

“The winter is almost over. It’s really cold today. We haven’t lit your fireplace. So I decided when you were in that meeting to light the fireplace,” she remembered the aide saying to her.

“But he forgot to open the flue,” she said with her trademark cackle.

“So Secret Service was like, ‘Ma’am, you cannot go back to your office,’ because there was smoke everywhere,” the vice president said.

“But it was the sweetest gesture,” she said. “So there are those moments.”

Prior to the show, she was greeted by protesters shouting “lock her up” and chasing her motorcade, a video showed.
