Kamala Harris’ aide complained to Anna Wintour about Vogue cover: book

Vice President Kamala Harris was so irritated by one Fashion Cover photo ahead of the 2021 inauguration that she had an aide to editor Anna Wintour, a new book claims.

Wintour defended the selected photo of Harris in Converse sneakers and skinny pants as “relatable” in a conversation with Harris’ new press secretary Symone Sanders, as excerpted from the upcoming book This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America” ​​emerges future.”

“Harris was wounded. Feeling belittled by the magazine, she asked the helpers: Dignity Fashion Do you represent another world leader in this way? the book says so in excerpts available to Politico.

Harris had apparently preferred a photo of her in a more formal powder blue suit, which ended up being a limited edition alternative to the trainers and skinny pants image that was leaked ahead of the release of the February 2021 issue.

According to the book, which was written by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns, the hubbub surrounding the picture allegedly surprised incoming President Joe Biden’s team.

Tina Flournoy, who would become Harris’ head of state, turned to the Biden campaign about perceived contempt and was “surprised by the anger in Harris’ circle,” Politico reported.

The Biden adviser reportedly told Flournoy that “this is not the time to go to war with Vogue over a comparatively trivial aesthetic issue,” the book said, according to Politico.

“Tina, the counselor said, these are first world problems,” the excerpt reads.

The book excerpts also show early tensions between the Biden and Harris offices in the early days of the administration, including early disagreements over the vice president’s role in the administration’s foreign policy, Politico said.

Harris’ team wanted her to oversee relations with the Nordic countries, which were considered “low-risk diplomatic tasks,” the book says.

“White House officials rejected the idea and ridiculed it privately,” the excerpt said, according to Politico. “It was even more irritating for Biden staff to learn that the vice president was planning a major speech to set out her perspective on foreign policy. Biden aides vetoed the idea.”

Later, the excerpt says, Harris “reconciled himself” to taking the lead with Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador amid rising migration across the US-Mexico border. Wanting to avoid the term “Grenzzar,” Harris accused Biden of misclassifying her assignment as immigration-related.

Harris’ office and the White House did not comment to Politico. Wintour did not respond to a request for comment. Kamala Harris’ aide complained to Anna Wintour about Vogue cover: book
