Vice President Kamala Harris has just shown us how privileged she is.
CNN reports that Harris is upset at living in “the world’s most exclusive hotel.” Apparently, 70,000 square feet is not enough for her.
“The property contains 119 rooms, including 14 guest bedrooms and 35 bathrooms, among other functional spaces. At 70,000 square feet, Blair House is larger than the White House,” the General Services Administration’s website reads.
Even with such a big place, extra rooms, and functional spaces, Harris is not satisfied. It’s even bigger than the White House, and she still isn’t happy!
Since January, Harris and her husband have been living in Blair House because the usual vice president’s mansion is being renovated to meet Harris’ demands.
“Harris — along with her husband, Georgetown Law professor Douglas Emhoff — is still, ostensibly, living out of suitcases, unable to move into the private residence reserved for the vice president because it’s still undergoing renovations,” CNN reported.
“It’s a situation that has left Harris increasingly and understandably bothered, according to several people who spoke to CNN about her situation. ‘She is getting frustrated,’ said another administration official, noting with each passing day the desire to move into her designated house — a stately, turreted mansion two-and-a-half miles from the White House — grows more intense,” CNN added.
CNN also reported that the vice president’s mansion is currently under a $3.8 million contract for “plumbing, heating and air-conditioning contractors.”
$3.8 million is no small amount. Most people can only ever dream of having that much money, yet she spends it on a “plumbing, heating and air-conditioning” contract. If that doesn’t show us how privileged she is, I don’t know what can.
