According to a new report from Business Insider based on interviews, some traumatized former staffers of VP Kamala Harris are terrified she could become President.
Business Insider says they interviewed a dozen former staffers to Harris who “spoke on condition of anonymity to protect professional relationships, adding that Harris’ job trajectory means it’s well within reason she could become the most powerful person on the planet.”
The report says “It’s a nightmare scenario for some former Harris staffers who watched nervously as their former boss ascended the national political stage. Many of them remain loyal Democrats and fans of Biden, but they didn’t want to see a boss with whom they’d had a bad experience become the Democratic Party’s standard bearer.”
“Biden, at 78, was already the oldest person to assume the US presidency. He’ll be a few weeks shy of his 82nd birthday on Election Day 2024, and there’s already speculation six months into his term over whether he’ll run for reelection,” the report adds.
Politico published a separate report citing similar accusations of a toxic workplace.
“People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses, and it’s an abusive environment,” said one person according to Politico. “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 s—t.”
