There is no denying that Vice President Kamala Harris, much like President Joe Biden, has had a difficult time when it comes to her role in the White House. Not only has Harris failed to capture the support of the American people, but when it came to key issues like the Southern border crisis, the Vice President more than failed to address the issue, hordes of migrants continue to cross.
With her approval rating sinking into the 30s, on Wednesday, Harris attended an event celebrating the 50th anniversary of Title IX and hoped a video of her hitting a basketball shot would impress voters. The only problem, like most of the Biden administration, the entire story wasn’t shown.
In the video, which is featured below, Harris is shown sinking a basket as the crowd around her, which included her husband Douglas Emhoff. Apparently, it didn’t matter that the Vice President was only a few feet from the basket. But as mentioned above, while Harris did make the shot eventually, it took her six tries.
While the video of Harris was originally uploaded by her aide, Opal Vadhan, another version was later shared by the Republican National Committee on Thursday and it painted an entirely different scene as people waited for the Vice President to make the basket.
For those wondering what exactly Title IX is, according to the Department of Education, “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Users online shared their thoughts, writing, “VPs office knows nothing about PR. Could have just showed the whole video which is actually fun to watch and something most of us can relate to. Instead, they had to hide it and edit it to make her look like a great shot, thus making her look deceptive.”
Other comments included:
- “I saw some of the missed shots. It wasn’t that she missed. She barely got to the bottom of the net on one try. She held the basketball like she had never seen one before. Maybe she should have gotten acquainted with a basketball before she went.”
- “Kamala made a basket. That should make up for the loss of everybody’s retirement, $7 dollar a gallon gas, a tanked stock market, out of control inflation, rising interest rates, no border security, rampant crime, a major war in Europe, embarrassment in Afghanistan and the world stage…”
- “One more thing added to her list of things she isn’t qualified to do. At least she hasn’t been hired to play basketball, so it isn’t expected. If only she was qualified for the job she actually was hired for.”
- “Joe remembers when he played for the Lakers and single-handedly took on and defeated Jordan.”
