In reality tho, VP Harris has been given the responsibility for some highly publicized issues such as fixing the massive immigration invasion on the southern border. Instead of jumping in headlong, she was the one who declined to visit the border and hold open discussions with the U.S. Border Patrol and ICE, further discrediting her ability to do her job.
The Times stated that Harris’ historically low approval rating and that a number of high profile staff members opted to depart their jobs less than a year into Harris’ term. She is reportedly reaching out to prominent figures, including Hillary Clinton, for advice on how to turn things around.
Clinton stated that there is a double standard and it’s still alive and well. “A lot of what’s being used to judge her, much like it was to evaluate me or the women who ran for 2020, or anybody else, is really colored through that.”
