(PresidentialHill.com)- According to a report, Vice President Kamala Harris recently stated that she had not seen the video that showed first lady Jill Biden and second gentleman Doug Emhoff kissing each other on the mouth.
When asked for a response to the awkward, trending video, Harris told Univision’s Edwin Pitti she hadn’t watched the video. Univision played the video on a loop as Harris was interviewed about it.
The video showed Jill Biden, dressed in vivid purple, extending her hand to Emhoff before giving him what appeared to be a kiss on the mouth and slipping past him to her seat. They then sat alongside their visitors in the House chamber’s balcony while their spouses were on the dais.
Ignoring the video, Harris said that the first lady and the second gentleman, who is Jewish, were working tirelessly here and abroad to combat anti-Semitism. She would not discuss the video, even though the host continually asked.
The Washington Free Beacon was the first to report Harris’ comments to Univision, which was dubbed over in Spanish.
Twitter users wondered why Kamala Harris’ husband and Jill Biden kissed on the lips.
The headline of an article by The Federalist read, “Everyone Is Talking About Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff’s Weird Kiss, Except Our National Press.” And Slate’s headline read, “If Only the Jill Biden-Doug Emhoff Kiss Could Last Forever.”
According to the book, This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future, first lady Jill Biden was against selecting Kamala Harris as her husband Joe Biden’s running mate after she brutally attacked him during a primary debate.
After hearing that Harris was the front-runner for the position, Jill Biden asked in a conversation why they had to pick Kamala Harris, the one who attacked Joe, out of a population of millions.
Notably, the first lady did not dispute making the remark, but last year, she told a reporter that it was two years ago and they had moved past that.
