VP Harris demanded that Biden staffers rise when she enters the room: Report

Ever get the impression that Vice President Kamala Harris is an insecure bully with a really bad case of impostor syndrome?

According to a new book, the vice president complained about staffers not standing up when she walked in the room, Western Journal reported.

Insecure Harris

Harris made such a big stink, the White House was forced to hold a meeting on her complaints, which they found “tedious,” according to the authors of This Will Not Pass.

New York Times journalists Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin write that Harris “fixated on real and perceived snubs in ways the West Wing found tedious.”

The authors told NBC’s Meet the Press that behind the scenes, there are deep, abiding tensions between Biden and his deeply unpopular vice president.

“The chief of staff to Kamala Harris telephoned the West Wing and told a senior adviser in the West Wing to Biden, ‘The VP has noticed this and she would like folks to stand — staff members to stand — when she enters the room,'” Martin said.

“This pulls back, I think, the curtain on what this White House is really like. The tensions are deep and they are real between the VP’s office and the West Wing.”

Unpopular, embarrassing VP

This is the same Kamala Harris who griped to Vogue about its portrayal of her in a glowing cover story. Again, the Biden team was surprised at Harris’ pettiness, which they described as “trivial” and an example of “first-world problems.”

Goodness — Harris is so clueless and out of touch that she makes the Biden team sound relatable.

How unpopular is Kamala Harris? Her own home state of California has rejected her, as have a stream of staffers who have fled her reportedly abusive, hectoring work environment.

It turns out that Biden almost spared himself and the country the embarrassment of having Harris in high office. He was concerned by her relationship with San Francisco mayor Willie Brown, which struck him as inappropriate. Now that Harris is in power, her limitations have become all too apparent.

With her awkward babbling and random, unprovoked cackling, Harris has made it pretty clear that she’s uncomfortable being where she is — and the whole spectacle is getting uncomfortable to watch, honestly. Maybe Biden should have trusted his instincts on this one.
