During the chat, he said he has no plans to head up a “kitchen cabinet” of advisers.

“I’m her husband, that’s it,” he went on to say.

“She’s got plenty of great people giving her political advice. I’m her partner, I’m her best friend and I’m her husband. And that’s what I’m here for. I’m here to have her back.”

Doug is extremely patient, he really is. And he has an incredible sense of humor,” Kamala said of her husband.

“One of the things that really allows us to get through these moments that are obviously very stressful — we’re talking about the future of the free world — it’s important to be able to laugh at yourself and each other. We do a healthy amount of both of that. We don’t take ourselves too seriously in the context of our relationship. You can’t. You just have to flow and know what’s really important.”

Kamala and Doug first met back in 2013 on a blind date, and then married the next year. He has two children from his first marriage, son Cole and daughter Ella.
