Vice President Kamala Harris swears in her replacement

January 20, 2021 13 Views

Kamala Harris is on the Senate floor for the first time since becoming vice president and is swearing in three senators: Georgia’s Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, as well as Harris’ replacement in California, Alex Padilla.
The swearing-in of the three new senators will be groundbreaking. Warnock and Ossoff will be the first Black and first Jewish senators, respectively, representing Georgia, while Padilla will be California’s first Latino senator.
Ossoff, 33, will also be the youngest senator in the chamber, and the youngest Democrat to serve in the Senate since President Joe Biden, who was sworn into the chamber at the age of 30 in 1973.
After Warnock, Ossoff and Padilla are sworn in, the party breakdown of the Senate will be 50-50. Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer will become the first New Yorker and first Jewish lawmaker to become Senate majority leader.
Harris will wield power as the Senate’s crucial tie-breaking vote, helping the Biden administration confirm its appointments and giving Democrats the gavels of committees in charge of holding oversight hearings and crafting far-reaching legislation.

  1. What a racist, disgusting, excuse of a women. What a Horrible example to our daughters. So sad they cheated and completely ruined a day that should have been celebrated. Electing the first female VP. But they cheated and she is not the real VP.

  2. Pence would say his own name in the third person all the time, but because he had no sense of humor, he would never laugh. Kamala is just so much fun! She's got this energy about her that is just infectious.

  3. Well Joe Biden's first day in office did he get a million people vaccinated yesterday like he said he was going to do? did he create any jobs, no he didn't create any jobs he canceled out about a couple hundred thousand jobs when he cancelled the XL pipeline not only in our country but also in Canada, and Canada's are already pissed at him, did Joe keep America First policy yesterday no he plans on crapping on the people of the u.s. and given illegal aliens first choice, did he save the country any money no he got back in the Paris climate Accord that cost us millions and millions of and not to mention more jobs, did Joe bow down to his adversaries? yeah he did got back in the WHO which turns out to be Chinese propaganda, well we'll see how he does today day 2 so far he's 0 for 5. Good job Democrats voting this corrupt clown in as president of the United States………

  4. There's no such thing as the oath of office every Democrat does not uphold the oath of office they're all criminals when you refused an audit of the ballots and you refuse an audit of the machines you are a crook it's as simple as that

  5. The moment when u choose VP only base on her sex and skin color. Way to go America. I'll wait for the first transgender president in the next 40 years because politics doesn't need smart ppl only different.

  6. President Trump opened Americans eyes to the evil of Washington and helped create a new party direction for disillusioned conservatives, liberals, and libertarians. The GOP is dead. Millions are changing to unaffiliated and searching for a new party. GOP volunteers are resigning from election positions across the country. The Lincoln Project will collect their money and fade into the Dem party as planned. Fascist Democrat party was lost 20 years ago. Elections will need to be run by the National Guard on paper ballots and Congress will be purged by voters or term limits

  7. CNN you could have mentioned the senators accompanying those to be sworn in. It's always good to know details about the ceremony, who walks with the new senator and why. Is it the norm to have a standing ovation for new sentors? Rachel, Lawrence and Nicole would have provided these details. Just sayin'

  8. Special thanks to Bidens campaign managers: CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, NPR, PBS, NY TIMES, WASHINGTON POST, TWITTER, FACEBOOK, APPLE, JEEF BEZOS, ANTIFA, BLM, YOUTUBE, RINOS, SUPREME COURT, JUDGES, CORRUPT GOVERNOS, CHINA AND ALL THE WASHINGTON STABLISHMENT. NOW LETS GO FOR NANCY PELOSY 2024 !!

  9. President Biden signed a mask mandate requiring everyone who is on federal land to have to wear masks.
    ALL the WH reporters wore masks even when speaking.

    There is a mandate about wearing masks on federal property. ALL government officials MUST follow.

  10. “So help you God”: that needs to be removed from the oaths. There needs to be a separation of church and state. We are not a theocracy. The first 27 presidents were not sworn in with that part of the oath.

  11. Its not the color of someones skin its the person on the inside so these people who talk about white skin black skin are the people who hate the color of some one else. Its the reason they cant talk about nothing else they are haters of other people
