SHORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – OVERNIGHT:

THEY KEEP LEAVING – OVERNIGHT: It's so hard to get good help these days. Why, just ask Kamala Harris.  A lovely boss, I'm sure, but those ungrateful Washington types just keep leaving her.  How could they be so disloyal? From CNN:   Sabrina Singh, Vice President Kamala Harris' deputy press secretary, is leaving her office, according to a White House official. Singh becomes the latest high-profile departure from the vice president's office, which suffered a turbulent first year due to missteps and messaging failures. She will join the Department of Defense.
Ernesto Apreza, a senior adviser in the White House Office of Public Engagement, will become deputy press secretary and is expected to focus on engaging local and state press, as well as specific key coalition groups. Apreza previously served on the Biden-Harris campaign, as well as on the then-mayor of Seattle's staff. Last year, communications director Ashley Etienne and press secretary Symone Sanders announced they would be vacating their positions. Those departures were followed by the exits of two additional staffers in the new year. Etienne was replaced by Jamal Simmons earlier this year; Sanders' role remains vacant.  It's well known in Washington that Harris runs a terrible office. Not a recommendation for the presidency. Or for any other executive position. Maybe they can find something for her in the State Department gift shop.
