(SNews) – Former aides to Kamala Harris have turned on the vice president and issued a warning to the American people about her lack of leadership qualities.
The aides spilled the beans in a new book about Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration.
They reportedly told the author, Chris Whipple, how bad it really is behind the scenes and insist that Harris is in way over her head.
One former staffer warned Whipple that the American people need to “know that this is not new, and it will inhibit any administration that she is the leader of.”
Not a ringing endorsement and with Biden’s age a factor he may have to remove her from the ticket.
One of the aides is a longtime staff member who worked with Harris in California, according to Whipple.
The ex-staffers say Harris is consumed by a “deep, deep insecurity” that creates a toxic work environment.
One ex-aide said Harris was lazy and that she “refused to do the kind of preparation that you need to do before going public on a hardcore policy matter.
“And then she became incensed and outraged when things wouldn’t go the way she thought they were supposed to.
“There was a lot of magical thinking.”
The same staffer said Harris would use identity politics to save her when she messed up.
The staffer said:
“When somebody raises an issue about Kamala, everybody’s like, you don’t want to see black women succeed.
“That’s completely backward.
“Everybody who goes to work for Kamala, by definition, wants to see her succeed.
“That’s why you take these jobs.
“I think it’s helpful for people to know that this is not new, and it will inhibit any administration that she is the leader of.”
Another former Harris staffer, Gil Duran, said:
“The amount of stress she created by constantly being impossible to manage and taking out all her stresses on staff — usually women, or people who were not in great positions of authority — was just kind of unbearable.”
“It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work,” one former worker told the Washington Post earlier in a report that confirms the reporting in the book.
“With Kamala, you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence.
“So you’re constantly sort of propping up a bully, and it’s not really clear why.”
