Vice President Kamala Harris is complaining that the media won’t her first two years in office in a positive light.
Speaking to Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart, Harris said:
“What you’ve been able to see is based on what gets covered.
“There are things that I’ve done as vice president that fully demonstrate the strength of my leadership as vice president that have not received the kind of coverage that I think the Dobbs decision did receive.”
Instead of blaming Harris’s horrific public appearances or lack of notable achievements, Capehart agreed with the VP’s comments.
However, Capehart failed to note that a new book reports that Democrat President Joe Biden even called Harris a “work in progress.”
According to Capehart, Harris has had a “banner year.”
“Harris is right about that,” Capehart said.
“Despite having a television and a print pool reporter at most of her public events, the vice president garners little attention.
“Sometimes the office is frustrating — as one of her predecessors famously put it, ‘not worth a bucket of warm, ‘um, spit.’
“And much of the attention she has received, especially in her first year, has been rough.
“Stories about staff departures were routinely hyped as disarray in narratives that unfairly called into question Harris’ competence.
“[T]he nation’s first black female and first South Asian vice president has also had to contend with the negative reactions and low expectations that come with shattering ossified notions of who should be in the position.
“President Biden’s electoral right-hand ma’am is finishing a banner year filled with domestic barnstorming and high-wire diplomacy.”

Kamala Harris is chronically undervalued & under-appreciated in her role as VP, with echoes of how a loud, inaccurate but persistent narrative painted Hillary Clinton. Important emphasis here on what Harris has masterfully pulled off so far. https://t.co/dVekcHoE5T
