On Thursday night, Vice President Kamala Harris invited her staff to a party at her official residence at the Naval Observatory. It was a post-Fourth of July celebration barbecue. The party was hosted after allegations that her staff were “treated like s**t” were made by them according to an interview conducted and published by POLITICO late June.
However, on Thursday, it was all smiles and fun as staffers feasted on burgers, drinks, and some other standard barbecue items. The event was held indoors as it was raining in DC. The tables had simple tablecloths with red checks.
This is not the first party hosted by Harris at her official residence. In mid-June, she held a dinner party for women in the Senate. Many women from the GOP had attended the get together. When President Biden was the vice president he had also held events and get togethers including a summer beach party which was hosted for journalists.
Symone Sanders, a senior advisor, and chief spokesperson of the vice president tweeted about the burgers. She said that the food served at Harris’ residence was good and the people were amazing.
Earlier, when the story against the Vice President and her Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy had been published, Sanders had defended both of them in the same POLITICO story against claims made by anonymous staff of their team.
She had told the agency that Flournoy believed in an “open door policy.” She also mentioned that black women like her would have not be able to work in politics, but for Tina.
She also called those who spoke anonymously and behind blind quotes —cowards. She said that anyone who had an issue to raise should do so “directly.” Flournoy was also at the party and was a part of the group photo.
