Kamala Harris’ former staffers are reportedly “traumatized” by a toxic work environment under the vice president, and fear her self-serving political ambition could land her in the Oval Office, according to reports highlighted on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight.
“So, some say Kamala Harris… is kind of phony because she can’t even pronounce her own first name, it changes. But she’d like you to know that, despite appearances, she does have some pretty deep principles,” Carlson noted just before playing a clip of Harris saying everyone deserves dignity and respect.
“But there’s a caveat, unstated at the time that everyone deserves dignity and respect, except for the people who work for Kamala Harris. They don’t get it. And now they are going on the record to explain it,” Carlson continued.
“One staffer in her office ‘had a sense of paranoia that you never knew when she was going to snap at you!’ Surprised to learn that? Another said ’employees were so stressed out that they were making themselves sick.’ So, Kamala Harris, champion of women, actually is marinating in a toxic stew of toxic masculinity,” he quipped just before bringing on Jesse Kelly, the host of “The Jesse Kelly Show,” to roast the vice president.

“Jesse, are you surprised to learn that Kamala Harris if that’s what she’s going by, is like the worst boss in Washington and nasty to the people who work for her?” Carlson asked him.
“It’s the most predictable thing in the world, Tucker. Everybody watching you right now has worked for or worked with somebody who just has ambition dripping off of their pores. And that’s Kamala Harris. Those types of people will do anything to get ahead. They treat their bosses like crap, they treat their employees like crap,” Kelly replied.
“That’s why she knifed Joe Biden in the debate with all that race nonsense. There was no need to do that. It’s the same reason she cackles like a dead hyena every time she’s asked an uncomfortable question. It’s the same reason she started out her political career as Willie Brown’s bratwurst bun. Kamala Harris will do anything to get ahead,” Kelly stated.
Carlson responded, “I gotta say when I look at her, you can feel the fear. And false people are always afraid because they are terrified you’ll find out who they really are.” He continued, “She always seems like she’s terrified of being exposed.”
“Well, she doesn’t believe in anything. And like you said, people without any grounding, they’re really worried about getting called out,” Kelly agreed.
“Kamala Harris is always painted as this far-left winger, but if Kamala Harris thought her political ambitions would do better on the right, Kamala Harris would be to the right of Barry Goldwater tomorrow. She believes in absolutely nothing except for Kamala Harris. That’s all she’s ever been. And so, any staffer, she doesn’t look at them like people, like a secretary, or an assistant. They’re all just stepping stones she can stomp on, on the way to the top job. But she’ll be miserable there too. As soon as they throw poor Joe out the back door and Kamala sits in the Oval Office, she’ll hate that too. She’ll move on to something else,” Kelly contended.
Harris’ anonymous former staffers are still recovering from the toxic work environment they allegedly suffered under the vice president. They worked for Harris when she was a district attorney in San Francisco from 2004 to 2011. They also worked with her when she was the California attorney general for six years, and as a U.S. Senator from 2017.
Business Insider is reporting:
It’s a nightmare scenario for some former Harris staffers who watched nervously as their former boss ascended the national political stage.
Many of them remain loyal Democrats and fans of Biden, but they didn’t want to see a boss with whom they’d had a bad experience become the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer. Biden, at 78, was already the oldest person to assume the US presidency. He’ll be a few weeks shy of his 82nd birthday on Election Day 2024, and there’s already speculation six months into his term over whether he’ll run for reelection.
Staffers reportedly spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid becoming a target of Harris’ anger.
Some of her former staffers claimed to be suffering from a form of post-traumatic stress after Harris started her ascension to the White House. According to the Washington Free Beacon, “they sought therapy to ‘resolve trauma from the on-the-job abuse’ after Harris was selected as Biden’s running mate in 2020.”
“People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses and it’s an abusive environment,” said one staffer according to Politico earlier this month. “It’s not a healthy environment and people often feel mistreated. It’s not a place where people feel supported but a place where people feel treated like s***.”
Her staffers aren’t the only ones who are terrified:
