Have you seen any of the excerpts from the new book by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns? Hoo boy, Kamala Harris comes off as one hell of a petty diva.
This week, Politico started offering up nuggets from Martin and Burns’ book “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future” that, I confess, I’ve been reading with a great deal of delight.
In one feature yesterday evening, Politico notes that Kamala was miffed because West Wing staffers weren’t standing when she entered the room the way they stood for Joe Biden. The petty diva took it as “a sign of disrespect.”
The shocking part of that anecdote is discovering that Kamala does on occasion come to the right conclusion.
Sure, the White House probably claims it’s all lies and Kamala is a “valued member of our team.” But something about that just rings true, you know?
The book also touches on the story of the infamous Vogue cover kerfuffle I mentioned last year.
According to the authors, the petty diva was none too happy that Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour selected the picture of Kamala standing in front of a bedsheet wearing her supposed trademark Chuck Taylors and a pair of skinny jeans.
“Harris was wounded,” the authors write. “She felt belittled by the magazine.”
According to the book, the petty diva asked her aides “Would Vogue depict another world leader this way?”
Slow your roll, you insufferable diva.
First off, the Vogue cover was made before Kamala was sworn into office. So Kamala was only “Vice President-Elect.” And the Veep-Elect is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a “world leader.”
Secondly, and I’m probably repeating what I wrote last year, Kamala posed for the bedsheet picture. If that petty diva didn’t think a “world leader” should be depicted wearing jeans and sneakers while standing in front of a bedsheet, then why in Lucifer’s reach did she agree to pose for the picture?
The other nugget from yesterday evening’s Politico piece was that Kamala wanted to be put in charge of “overseeing” US relations with the Nordic countries.
That made me laugh out loud because the first thing that popped into my head was this scene from the HBO series “VEEP.”
LOL! Ah, so much like Kamala.
According to the book, White House aides “privately mocked” the idea of putting Kamala in charge of the Nordic countries. Instead, they stuck her with Central America. And we all know how she felt about that.
Yesterday morning Politico published some excerpts from the book that gave us a behind-the-scenes peek into just how Jill Biden felt about Team Biden saddling her husband with the petty diva Kamala.
Apparently, Jill was still pretty peeved with how Kamala went after Joe in that first Democrat debate in 2019 when she accused him of being a racist for opposing busing.
So when Jill heard Kamala was tapped for Veep, she allegedly griped to a “close advisor,” “There are millions of people in the United States, she began. Why, she asked, do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe?”
This has not been a very good month for Kamala Harris, let me tell you. What with her bungling trip to Poland and Romania, not to mention losing two more staffers (and bringing the total of defecting Veep staffers to ten). And now Politico keeps publishing excerpts from the Martin and Burns book that make her come off like a bitchy, complaining, petty diva. Nope, not a good March for the vapid Veep.
I suspect the Veep’s comms team has already called Politico to demand they stop publishing all the excerpts from the book that pertain to Kamala.
I think it’s also a good bet the petty diva is bitching up a storm about how she feels “belittled” by Politico while telling her staff, “Would Politico treat another world leader like this?!”
I’m enjoying this too much, aren’t I?
But I can’t help it. I just loathe this woman. So seeing her humiliated on such a massive scale tickles me to no end.
