Vice President Kamala Harris expressed her frustration with corporate media for featuring “soundbites” over substance in their coverage of her.
“Part of my frustration is the way that this system rewards sound bites” as opposed to “depth and thought,” Harris said in an interview with the Atlantic reporter Peter Nicholas.
Nicholas reported Harris was “fed up” with the media portrayal of her vice presidency, but noted her campaign specifically leveraged the soundbite “that little girl was me” attack against her then-rival for the Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Nicholas also asked Harris if she regretted her attack on Biden on the issue of race.
“There is no sunlight or daylight between he and I on the issue of race, on the history of racism in our country, and also what we need to do going forward to fight for equity-based on race, gender, and everything else,” she replied.
Proving she can’t speak English correctly. How did she get a law degree?
Harris and her team have stumbled in the first six months of office, careening from crisis to crisis with painfully awkward moments.
Polls show Harris as the least popular vice president in modern history.
Her biggest struggle remains her handling the border crisis after Biden put her in charge in March, earning criticism from the right for completely failing to stem the crisis and criticism from the left for telling migrants not to come to the border.
Harris also struggled to explain why she would not be visiting the Southern Border, ultimately concluding in an embarrassing gaffe in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt requiring her to reverse her position.
