Much like failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton, congresswoman and potential 2020 contender Sen. Amy Klobuchar has a reported habit of treating people like garbage. So much so, that she’s been unable to retain a campaign chief, according to HuffPost.
At least three people withdrew from consideration to lead Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s nascent presidential campaign — in part because of Klobuchar’s history of mistreating her staff. https://t.co/qhWMiodmSB

“At least three people have withdrawn from consideration to lead Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s nascent 2020 presidential campaign — and done so in part because of the Minnesota Democrat’s history of mistreating her staff,” the left-wing news purveyor reported Wednesday.
Bizpac Review reports,
According to former Klobuchar staffers with whom HuffPost spoke, the 13-year Senate veteran is demeaning, prone to outbursts, difficult to work with and just plain mean.
For instance, it’s common for her to describe her staffers’ efforts/work as “the worst,” be it “the worst” press release they ever wrote, “the worst” press briefing they ever held, etc. She’s also known to demand that staffers perform personal errands for her.
To make matters worse, she has a habit of publicly humiliating her staffers by using the cc function to email a copy of her “public flogging[s]” of individual staffers, as HuffPost described them, to everybody working on her campaign — and no matter how slight the purported mistake.
One of the former staffers with whom HuffPost spoke described a time that Klobuchar prepared tardy slips — as in the type handed out in high school — for her staffers after they arrived late to the office for reasons that remain unclear (bad weather? lots of traffic?).
“The staffer recalls incredulous bursts of laughter as her co-workers arrived one by one to find the notes, but Klobuchar was deadly serious. An aide whom she called into her office walked back out in tears,” HuffPost reported.
“She was constantly lighting new fires,” one former staffer said. “When you have people who don’t want to work for you, you can’t be as effective.”
