There has been plenty of talk lately about what Vice President Kamala Harris is, (and more importantly isn’t doing), in her East Wing role, and the general American public appears to be well aware of the issues at hand.
This became readily apparent after Harris visited her Alma Mater this week, where a chilly reception greeted the ’86 graduate.
US Vice President Kamala Harris was booed on the third day of the NCAA’s March Madness tournament in Des Moines, Iowa, as she watched her alma mater, Howard University, fall to college basketball powerhouse Kansas.
Having graduated from the historically black college and university (HBCU) with a Bachelor of Arts in political science and economics in 1986, Harris showed up in a suite at the Wells Fargo Arena on Thursday to see her Bisons get blown out by the Jayhawks, 68-96, along with her husband and second gentleman, Doug Emhoff.
This wasn’t exactly a friendly crowd to begin with.
More than half of Iowa’s inhabitants (53.1 percent) voted for Donald Trump in the 2020 Presidential election, compared to 44.9 percent of votes for Joe Biden.
Fans hailing from Kansas, another Republican state, may have also been behind the chorus of boos. Although Trump won the state with 56.18 percent of votes in 2020, Biden’s 41.53 percent vote share represented the highest for a Democrat presidential nominee since 2008 – among Biden’s best statewide increases of the election.
The moment was soon circulating on social media, and you could tell by the look on the VP’s face that something was amiss:

Harris’ lack of accomplishments as Vice President has been a hot topic this week, particularly after late night television host Stephen Colbert brutally called her out for it.
