Vice President Kamala Harris’ communications director resigned on Thursday amid horrific poll numbers for Harris and growing criticism of the VP.
Ashley Etienne resigned on Thursday. The resignation will take effect next month.
“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 told Fox News. “She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”
Etienne, a longtime top adviser to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D‑Calif., served as Pelosi’s communications director twice, sandwiched in between time in the Obama White House.
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.
