(FiveNation.com)- Vice President Kamala Harris is not only the least popular vice president among American voters in modern history, but it turns out her staff doesn’t seem to be particularly fond of her either.
On Thursday, Harris’ communications director resigned from her position. Ashley Etienne announced her move, which will take effect in December.
A White House official confirmed the resignation to Fox News and said that Etienne “worked tirelessly to advance the goals” of the Biden administration and that she is “leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”
Let’s be honest. What opportunity is better than working for the White House?
Something must have happened.
Etienne has plenty of experience working for high-profile Democrat leaders, having been a top adviser to far-left House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for years. She twice served as Pelosi’s communications director, and spent time working in the White House during the Obama administration.
The move comes as Harris’ approval ratings continue to slip nationally, and as even left-wing news outlets begin to pick up on the fact that people just don’t like her.
ABC News host George Stephanopoulos even recently asked the vice president if she feels “misused or underused” by the Biden administration, in what appeared to be an attempt at putting the blame on the old white straight male president instead of the incompetent vice president.
“No, I don’t,” Harris responded.
Well, presumably she realizes that she’s just bad at her job and people don’t like her for it, then.
Even White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki chimed in on the matter, responding to news that Harris’ approval ratings slipped to a disastrous 28%.
“For anyone who needs to hear it. @VP is not only a vital partner to @POTUS but a bold leader who has taken on key, important challenges facing the country—from voting rights to addressing root causes of migration to expanding broadband,” Psaki said.

That’s called damage control.
No news yet on exactly why Harris’ communications director is leaving, but we could take a guess.
