Internet Erupts Over Staged Photo of Kamala Staffer: ‘Looks Like a Hostage Photo’

In a damaging CNN report, ex-staffers have accused Vice President Kamala Harris of creating a hostile work environment.

CNN interviewed nearly three dozen current and former staffers for Harris which showed there is significant dysfunction within her team.

One former staffer accused Harris of inflicting a “constant amount of soul-destroying criticism.”

Harri’s approval rating sits at only 28 percent, according to a poll from USA Today. This is the lowest rating for any vice president in U.S. history, according to Business Insider.

Multiple top aides on Harri’s team have quit, including veteran communications chief Ashley Etienne who previously worked for Obama, Joe Biden, and Nancy Pelosi.

“Harris is struggling with a rocky relationship with some parts of the White House,” CNN reported about Harris, who once even accused Joe Biden of being racist during the Democratic primary race.

After a staged photo surfaced of Harris’ Deputy Director of Operations David Gins, the Internet immediately erupted.

Making his loyalty publicly clear, the photo was captioned, “Hi. My name is David Gins. I work for Vice President Harris on behalf of the American people as Deputy Director for Operations and absolutely love my job.”

“Just thought some of you should know,” he added, while looking intensely at his computer working.

Take a look:

Harris’ office is clearly making an effort to combat the horrible publicity swirling about her office and work environmnet.

“Looks like a hostage photo,” one person commented on Twitter.

“Thousand yard stare,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw said.

“Are you under duress?” associate editor at Reason Christian Britschgi asked.

One user even pointed out the photo in the background, which shows Harris and a man who is not immediately recognizable but appears to be Harris’ husband, Doug Emhoff, at a desk together.

Politico reported Saturday that staffers are “eyeing the exits” as the administration hits the one-year mark next month.

A rumor circulating in Washington, D.C. that the White House will get rid of Kamala Harris by nominating her to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.

One passage from the CNN report has “sent shockwaves across Washington, D.C.,” Daily Wire notes.

Inside the CNN article, here’s the quote that caught everyone’s eye:

“Defenders and people who care for Harris are getting frantic. When they’re annoyed, some pass around a recent Onion story mocking her lack of more substantive work, one with the headline, “White House Urges Kamala Harris To Sit At Computer All Day In Case Emails Come Through.”

When they’re depressed, they bat down the Aaron Sorkin-style rumor that Biden might try to replace her by nominating her to a Supreme Court vacancy. That chatter has already reached top levels of the Biden orbit, according to one person who’s heard it,” said the piece.

Such a move is reported to admittedly be “improbable,” but reflects desperation on the part of the Biden administration, wrestling with not only its own low poll numbers but with those of Harris, which are even lower.

This raises the question: How did Harris get to be vice president to begin with, especially when her presidential run in 2020 was so poor that she had to make an early exit from the campaign?

You know the answer — and it was voiced on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson program by Larry Elder, talk show host and unsuccessful Republican gubernatorial candidate.

“The only reason, in my opinion, she became vice president is because she checked all the boxes. The Democrats in this woke era are no longer going to have two white males on the ticket,” Elder said.
