Vice President Kamala Harris took a verbal thrashing on social media again Tuesday for the manner in which she kicked off a meeting.
Harris, who was chairing a meeting of ‘leaders’ to discuss the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last month to overturn Roe v. Wade began by introducing herself using her pronouns and describing to everyone in the room what she was wearing.
“Good afternoon. I want to welcome these leaders for coming in to have this very important discussion about some of the most pressing issues of our time. I am Kamala Harris, my pronouns are she and her. I am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit,” a masked Harris said while introducing herself.
VP: "I am Kamala Harris, my pronouns are she and her, and I am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit."

Fox News adds:
Other figures at the table introduced themselves with such descriptions as, “I’m a Latina with blond highlighted hair, and I’m wearing a gray blazer over a black-shade dress,” and “my pronouns are she/her, I’m a White woman with long brown hair, I’m wearing a red dress, and I’m wearing a see-through mask so you can see my red lips.” Another said, “I am a Black woman with curly hair, and I am wearing a vintage black and floral dress.”
Literally all of the guests at Kamala’s event are introducing themselves by saying their pronouns and what they are wearing.

Needless to say, the VP was savaged on social media for the cringeworthy display of ‘woke.’
“When did Kamala become a biologist?” comedian Tim Young quipped.
“This is why the rest of the world laughs at us,” ex-journalist Beth Baumann added.
“And they wonder why ordinary Americans think these people have lost their grip,” National Review’s Dan McLaughlin tweeted.
“If she would repudiate woke inanities and move towards a commonsensical centrism, she would be embraced by a majority of Americans. Instead, she just digs in,” the American Enterprise Institute’s Christina Sommers wrote.
“I’m the Democratic Party,
This is a blue dress, I’m seated in a brown chair, the carpet is red, the people are giggling, my pronouns are hee/haw, the recession isn’t real if I close my eyes,
and this November we will lose control of both houses of Congress in F#cking landslide!”

Fox News noted further:
The clip also drew the attention of the Republican Party’s rapid-response Twitter account RNC Research, and some journalists and activists lashed out at those criticizing Harris and her compatriots, saying they were accommodating visually impaired persons.
Left-wing journalists attempted to justify and defend Harris.
CNN’s DJ Judd, noting the GOP was criticizing Harris, wrote, “Vice President Kamala Harris introduced herself with her pronouns and a physical description in an effort to accommodate the blind and visually impaired participating in today’s roundtable with disability advocates– a move the RNC is mocking her for.”
“The what you’re wearing thing has become more and more common in the past couple years to help people who are visually impaired. Think of it like alt text on Twitter,” journalist Yashar Ali wrote.
