The big chill: Kamala and Joe ignite wave of reaction after behavior at Dole tribute

President Joe Biden ignited a wave of reactions for what many thought was a particularly awkward few moments in the U.S. Capitol.

The president’s entry to the Capitol, as he and other lawmakers gathered to honor the late Sen. Bob Dole who was lying in state, raised eyebrows because of what some saw as an odd exchange between himself and Vice President Kamala Harris.

It was actually the lack of an exchange that caught the attention of viewers, as video from the tribute ceremony showed the president and first lady Jill Biden arrive shortly behind Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff.

Social media users noted how there was no eye contact between the two leaders and how the president seemed to ask his wife to switch seats, positioning her closer to the vice president.

Many Twitter users agreed that the “cringe” causing moment was significant, given the recent reports of tensions between the president and vice president’s teams in the White House.

Other Twitter users dismissed the comments and contended that there was actually nothing out of the ordinary about the opening moments of Thursday’s ceremony.
