Kamala’s Communications Director Resigns As Criticism of Harris Intensifies

The communications director for Vice President Kamala Harris resigned on Thursday. Ashley Etienne’s resignation comes after growing criticism of Harris, as well as speculations that the Biden and Harris camps are at odds.

Etienne was a longtime top adviser to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). She served as communications director twice for Pelosi, and also worked in the Obama White House. Harris and Biden’s poll numbers have plummeted, and Harris has been criticized greatly for her lack of involvement, particularly as it relates to border security.

Biden placed Harris in charge of assessing where migrants come from, and she has given little to no reprieve except for by saying more trees should be planted in the home countries of the migrants.

Ashley’s resignation will take effect next month, and a White House official told Fox News “Ashley is a valued member of the Vice President’s team, who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration…She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”

Fox News reports:

The White House has struggled in recent days in the wake of a recent scathing CNN report that outlined frustration and dysfunction in Harris’ office. ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos asked the vice president if she feels “misused or underused” by the Biden administration. She laughed in response.

“No, I don’t,” the vice president said.

The CNN piece touched a nerve in the White House, with press secretary Jen Psaki tweeting out a defense of the vice president that appeared to be in direct response to the article. Harris’ approval rating was a dismal 28% in one recent survey, a historically bad number for a vice president.

Two more staffers are reportedly leaving their jobs in Vice President Kamala Harris’ office, according to the Washington Post. The news comes just after Harris’ chief spokeswoman, Symone Sanders, announced her departure.

“Symone Sanders, the senior adviser and chief spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris, is expected to leave the White House at the end of the year, according to five administration officials familiar with the matter,” Politico reported.

In addition to Sanders, “Peter Velz, director of press operations, and Vince Evans, deputy director of the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs in the vice president’s office, have also told others in the vice president’s office that they are leaving, according to two administration officials,” the Washington Post reported.

Earlier this week, Sanders officially announced her departure in a note to the Vice President’s team.

“I’m so grateful to the VP for her vote of confidence from the very beginning and the opportunity to see what can be unburdened by what has been. I’m grateful for [Harris chief of staff] Tina [Flournoy] and her leadership and her confidence as well,” Sanders wrote. “Every day, I arrived to the White House complex knowing our work made a tangible difference for Americans. I am immensely grateful and will miss working for her and with all of you.”

The news comes just weeks after Harris’ communications director Ashley Etienne filed her resignation.

“Ashley is a valued member of the vice president’s team, who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration,” a White House official stated. “She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”

“Harris’ office has been beset by disorder, bad press, and, at times, internal frictions,” Politico reported, adding, “ … in recent weeks, chatter has grown increasingly loud that Harris wasn’t positioned well to be Biden’s heir apparent in 2028 or, if he opts not to run again, in 2024.”
