Kamala Harris sworn in as US’s first female, Black and south Asian vice-president

Kamala Harris made history on Wednesday when she was sworn in as Joe Biden’s vice president, becoming the first woman, the first Black American and the first Asian American to hold the second highest US office.

Looking ahead, Harris, 56, is seen as an obvious contender for the Democratic Party’s 2024 presidential nomination should Biden, 78, decide not to seek a second term. Harris has yet to weigh in publicly on such speculation.

A US senator from California the past four years, Harris has shattered many a glass ceiling. She served as San Francisco’s first female district attorney and was California’s first woman of color to be elected attorney general.Harris has resigned her Senate seat, but she still will play a prominent role in the chamber.

The US vice president serves as Senate president, casting any tie-breaking votes in the 100-member chamber. With it split evenly between Democrats and Republicans, Harris gives her party control of the Senate.

  1. She's not the first person of color as vice president I don't know why people keep saying that she's not the first of a goddamn thing. people nowadays especially young people are so damn stupid and they don't even do the research has anyone ever heard of Charles Curtis??? Probably not look it up. Quit being idiots

  2. You know that swish sound when you flush the toilet? I'm hearing that same sound for this country. Right down the toilet. Kamala is so in over head. Right down the toilet.

  3. Correction Kamala Harris is sworn in as US’ first female Vice President of Asian, African, and European descent. Why are we still lying to ourselves? If we are going to highlight her heritage, we should at least be honest about it.

  4. Kamala: I wanna thank Willie Brown for his support, love, more love, and that one incredible night when he put on that Teddy Pendergrass record and made me see stars…. The only man that literally knows me inside and out.

  5. Lets see how their lovely young peaceful voters feel after 4 years of higher taxes, less jobs, more wars, race baiting, censorship and propaganda.

    Who am I kidding they all seem to like that now, its cool to be against the system, yet for for the most authoritarian system there is

  6. She’s referred to as half black and half asian whereas Obama is only black. They just love to play their race games, and no one is just human. Because they think that two wrongs do make a right.

  7. I bet American citizens can't wait to get their much needed $2000 cheques for much needed food and utility bills OR EVEN BETTER ADD $200 TO IT AND BUY THE SNEAKERS THAT KAMALA' S NEPHEW IS WEARING, USUAL GREAT AWARENESS FROM THE POLITICAL CLASSES ?

  8. She is one sick woman. Listen to her laugh and look at her eyes. Putin will chew her up and have her bringing him coffee and tell her to make it fast. I think she will make it fast as we all know she wears quality and classy shoes to move quick. Converse on Vogue?? Really? Cmon man

  9. Jesus….I THANK YOU GOD FOR LETTING ME LIVE TO SEE THIS GREAT MOMENT IN HISTORY!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SO PROUD OF PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SCJ SONIA SOTOMAYOR AND NOW, MADAME VICE-PRESIDENT ESQUIRE, KAMALA DEVI HARRIS-EMHOFF!!!!!!!!!! I LIVED TO SEE IT!!!!!!!! THANK YOU GOD FOR LETTING ME LIVE IN THIS LIFE TO SEE IT
