She knows there is turmoil in the White House.

Vice President Kamala Harris ignored questions about staffers leaving her office, choosing to lash out at negative media coverage.

During an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, Harris ridiculed headlines of a trip to Paris that highlighted her purchase of a $375 pot on the way to the airport instead of “a very significant and highly successful bilateral meeting in France.”

The Vice Preside expressed her frustrations that her reason for being in Paris, which included a meeting regarding discussions on “international norms and rules on everything from to space,” had not been the topic of headlines.

Scoffing at the focus of headlines, Harris added, “Come on!”

The criticism the Vice President was complaining about mentioned a shopping trip she made to an upscale cookware store in Paris. At the store, she reportedly spent $600 on cookware, including a $375 pot. Many media outlets emphasized the purchase, pointing to it being tone-deaf given that Americans were battling high inflation.

Although Harris was vocal about her disdain regarding her media coverage, the newspaper reported that she “sidestepped” questions regarding reports about dysfunction in her office.

It was reported the dysfunctional environment in Harris’s office led to the resignations of senior staffers, including her spokesperson Symone Sanders and her communications director Ashley Etienne.

The Chronicle added that Harris had not directly answered two questions about lessons she learned and what she wished she had done differently in the last year. Instead, she focused on her goals for 2022, which included traveling around the country to sell the administration’s priorities.

It seems Harris still has a long way to go to convince Americans she’s a suitable Vice President. Polling from August revealed that most Americans considered Harris unqualified to take on duties of the presidency if the occasion arose, compared to 43% who believed she was qualified or very qualified for the role.
