(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- This past week, Politico published several articles featuring excerpts from the upcoming book “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future” by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns that take direct aim at the touchy, thin-skinned diva, Vice President Kamala Harris.
In their book, Martin and Burns recount the kerfuffle from January 2021 over the Vogue Magazine cover showing Kamala standing in front of a satin bedsheet wearing jeans and her supposed “trademark” Chuck Taylor sneakers.
When the cover photo was leaked, Kamala was furious. She had expected the cover to be one of the more dignified shots she posed for and discovering editor Anna Wintour had selected the bedsheet photo had her beside herself with outrage.
Martin and Burns write that the “wounded” Kamala “felt belittled” by Vogue and asked her aides “Would Vogue depict another world leader this way?”
“World leader.” She was Vice President-elect. What a diva.
Of course, Kamala posed for the bedsheet picture. If she found it so belittling, why on earth did she pose for it?
The book goes into a great deal of detail about the tense relationship between the West Wing and Kamala’s office. Martin and Burns describe Kamala as someone who is “fixated on real and perceived snubs,” adding that people in the West Wing found this fixation “tedious.”
According to the book, Harris sent her Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy to the West Wing to convey to Biden advisor Anita Dunn Kamala’s displeasure over White House staff not standing up when Kamala entered the room as they do for Biden. Martin and Burns note that Kamala saw that as “a sign of disrespect.”
Politico asked Anita Dunn to comment on the account in the book, but she refused, only telling Politico that everyone in the West Wing “has a high degree of respect” for Kamala.
The book also recounts that White House aides mocked Kamala’s request that Biden put her in charge of “overseeing relations with the Nordic countries” which the authors described as a “low-risk diplomatic assignment” for the inexperienced Harris.
White House aides were also irritated that Kamala wanted to give a “major speech” outlining her foreign policy views. According to the book, Biden’s people vetoed the idea.
