Vice President Kamala Harris and her team were reportedly upset after a Vogue magazine cover when she took office, according to a new book.
The New York Times’s Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns wrote that the vice president’s team thought the cover of Harris was disrespectful, as it did not present her in more formal attire.

“Harris was wounded. She felt belittled by the magazine, asking aides: Would Vogue depict another world leader this way?” reads an excerpt of the book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” reported by Politico.
“The Biden adviser told Flournoy that this was not the time to be going to war with Vogue over a comparatively trivial aesthetic issue,” the excerpt says. “Tina, the adviser said, these are first-world problems.”
Harris has continued to struggle as vice president. A recent clip shows her speeches have often done more harm than good.

The biggest concern for Harris and her team is not the cover of Vogue, but turning things around as the term nears its midpoint and midterm elections loom.
