After Bitter Election, Senate Republicans Congratulate Kamala Harris

The displays seemed to contradict some of the things we’d been hearing from politicians during appearances in the media.

There are plenty of folks out there who will tell you that this political thing is all just for show.  They’ll say that the left and the right are just two wings of the same bird, and that what we witness playing out in the West Wing and the Capitol is just for show; that the machinations of the political-media complex are more akin to professional wrestling than it is to governing.

But the bitter divide we feel as Americans right now, in 2020, would be totally misplaced if this were the case…unless, of course, this was all a part of the aforementioned show.

The theory is a wild one, and normally reserved for the deeper, darker corners of conspiracy land.

Every now and then, however, there are moments that make you stop and wonder. 

Several Republican senators congratulated Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on her electoral victory, even as many of them publicly rally behind President Trump’s efforts to fight the election results.

Sens. Tim Scott, R-S.C., James Lankford, R-Okla., Mike Rounds, R-S.D., and Ben Sasse, R-Neb., all approached Harris to congratulate her Tuesday on the Senate floor as the chamber voted on Federal Reserve board nominee Judy Shelton.

It marked the first time that Harris, a California senator, has appeared on Capitol Hill since becoming vice president-elect.

Lindsey Graham was also seen jovially greeting Harris, but he insists that’s all that it was.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., — one of the most vocal defenders of the president — also gave a fist bump to Harris, though he said later that he was “just saying hello.”

“I haven’t seen her in a while. If it works out and they make it, I told her I wish her well and try to work where we can. We will know here in a month or so or less,” Graham told CNN.
