There are few, if any actions that can be taken by Congress “as somber, as serious, as important as the impeachment of the president of the United States of America.”
That’s according to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, but don’t take his word for it, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi struck a somber tone when she announced the Democrats’ first sham impeachment of President Trump: “The House has acted on a very sad day to protect the constitution of the United States.”
You may recall that Pelosi shot her caucus in the evil eye when they began cheering in the House chamber, which brings us to the recent actions of Sen. Kamala Harris — yes, the California Democrat soon to become Joe Biden’s number two has yet to resign the seat.
A TikTok video showing Harris in her sock features Meena Harris giving her aunt a peach-flavored mint. “Auntie. I got you a gift. Im-peach-mints,” she said, as Kamala Harris looked on cross-legged in a chair.

The soon to be vice president burst out in laughter at the inappropriate joke, though we should be grateful that the clip was cut at that point, sparing the nation a hideous cackle that makes Hillary Clinton endearing.
The video caption added by Meena Harris read: “happy impeachment day 🍑.”
Where is Nancy Pelosi when you need her?

And while Vice President Mike Pence never realized the adoration Harris enjoys — being a white Christian male is not all that popular in post-Obama America — the fact that Democrats rushed to impeach Trump a second time in a matter of a week, making a mockery of the process of removing a president, there’s little humor to be found.
Further cheapening the impeachment process, after the Democrats’ hurried political maneuver to impeach President Trump for inciting violence the day a small number of protesters broke away from a rally to storm the U.S. Capitol, there have been reports that the FBI has uncovered evidence that the assault was planned well in advance.
Before the rally, where the president addressed the hundred thousand-plus crowd, which is allegedly what prompted Pelosi and Co. to act.
The idea of a politician having so little regard for the importance of an action seen as the most divisive Congress can take being one heartbeat away — a 78-year-old heart at that — from the Oval Office is a scary concept.
But for Gen Z, the important thing here are the blue and white socks being worn by Harris, who got her start in politics after an affair with a man 30 years her senior — as a young San Francisco prosecutor, she engaged in a sexual relationship with then 60-year-old Mayor Willie Brown, who gave her political career a boost.
A social media user tweeted: “Madame Vice President Kamala Harris & I have the same “THE FUTURE IS FEMALE” socks. Relieved face That is all.”
Madame Vice President Kamala Harris & I have the same “THE FUTURE IS FEMALE” socks. 😌 That is all.

The official Instagram account for The Oprah Magazine responded to the ill-suited clip to praise Meena Harris: “You’re going to give us all the content we deserve for the next four years 😂😂😂.”
Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter looking ahead to what can be expected the next four years:
What does it for you? I personally like how she locked up people for minor drug crimes and got into politics by banging willie brown

So that’s the kind of content we’ll be getting for four years if Joe is inaugurated.

Why is this relevant? Here we go with the media making these people rockstars instead on focusing on their Jobs as a goverment. Brainwash.

They like her socks but have no idea about her policies

They love the socks and can’t wait to gloat over her. Compare that to how despised the First Lady has been treated over the past 4 years. Shameful.
