Vice President Kamala Harris complained about negative media coverage while refusing to answer questions about the departure of her staff members during comments with reporters on Sunday.
VP Kamala Harris and her team decry media coverage they see as overly focused on the trivial scandals.
One example: When the internet was obsessing over her distrust of Bluetooth headphones.
Harris calls these headlines “ridiculous.”

“Oh, how about, ‘She’s going to buy a pot on her way to the airport,’ after a very significant and highly successful bilateral meeting in France on issues that are about national security, on issues that are about climate, on issues that are about what we are doing in terms of international norms and rules on everything from cyber to space,” Harris said in a San Francisco Chronicle article.
Yet the same outlet reported, “Harris twice did not directly answer a question about lessons she had learned and whether she wished she’d done anything differently over the past year.”
Harris may dislike the negative coverage, but her responses have done little to help change the situation.
Instead of offering answers, her responses continue to sound like complaining, instead feeding the negative media she pushes back against.
The vice president is understandably concerned, however, as she has lost several key staff members in recent weeks and has plummeted in approval polls nationwide.
