People who used to work for Vice President Kamala Harris have been speaking out amid the latest meltdown in her office, and some of their quotes are brutal.
Harris doesn’t sound like she knows how to run a meeting, let alone a superpower.
THE MONEY QUOTES
An anonymous former staffer to the Washington Post, Saturday: “It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work. … 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.”
Gil Duran, a former Democratic strategist and aide to Harris, to the Washington Post, Saturday: “Who are the next talented people you’re going to bring in and burn through and then have (them) pretend they’re retiring for positive reasons.”
A knowledgeable source to Politico, June 30: “People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses and it’s an abusive environment … 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 sh*t.”
Sean Clegg, a political consultant who advised Harris: “I’ve never had an experience in my long history with Kamala, where I felt like she was unfair. Has she called bulls—? Yes. And does that make people uncomfortable sometimes? Yes. But if she were a man with her management style, she would have a TV show called ‘The Apprentice.'”
