Journalist Franklin Foers upcoming book The Last Politician sheds light on Kamala Harris perceived insecurity and how colleagues have referred to her rabbit ears in relation to criticism, Fox News reported.

The book suggests that Harris does not ignore criticism. Instead, she wants to find out who criticized her and what they said, thereby letting the criticism guide her and creating a rift in the Biden administration.
