President Donald Trump’s former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has warned Kamala Harris that her vice presidency “is sinking like the Titanic.”
McEnany called out the atmosphere around Harris after her 12th staffer just left the vice president’s office.
“Yeah, it’s not ordinary,” said McEnany, who now co-hosts Fox News show “Outnumbered.”
“Look, people say, ‘Oh, there’s White House burnout,’ of course, it’s a hardworking job, but most of the people know what they’re signing up for.
“It’s a tremendous honor to take a job like that.
“It’s highly abnormal to have a revolving door quite like this.
“A dozen departures?
“During my tenure, I don’t recall any major figure leaving Vice President Pence’s office, his communications director, his chief of staff.
“He was a good boss, a good person to work for.
“These are people who are tired of prepping someone who doesn’t want to prepare.
“These are people who see a sinking ship that is sinking like the Titanic, and they’re jumping off.
“While they still have an opportunity to get to a network or a major company before it totally goes up in flames,” she said.

Deputy chief of staff Michael Fuchs is leaving the VP’s office according to Reuters who saw an internal staff memo.
Fuchs served as a foreign policy advisor to former President Bill Clinton.
He worked in senior roles at the U.S. State Department under former President Barack Obama’s administration.
Fuchs wrote: “It’s been the honor of a lifetime to serve in this administration, working for the Vice President and President on behalf of the American people.
“Fifteen months later, it’s almost difficult to recall the magnitude of the challenges we faced when we came in.
“From an unprecedented pandemic to historically difficult economic circumstances.
“And it is thanks to the work of this administration – and all of you – that our country has had such success in tackling these challenges and turning things around,” he wrote.
Jamal Simmons, Kamala’s communications director, said Harris “is grateful for Michael’s tireless work, leadership and the many miles he traveled domestically and internationally … our entire team will miss Michael as he begins this next chapter.”
Harris’s office, which has been tossed to and fro by “disorder, bad press, and, at times, internal frictions” because of Harris’s reported “abusive environment,” where staffers have been “treated like shit,” has had a slew of resignations and departures in recent months during political “shitshow” resets.
Those who have left Harris include Kate Childs Graham, director of speechwriting for Harris; Senior Adviser Symone Sanders; Peter Velz, director of press operations;
Vince Evans, deputy director of the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs; and Communications Director Ashley Etienne.
