What is the video that’s trending?
Rainbow put out a video spoofing Camelot that endorses Harris as the next Vice President.
Rainbow replaces the words to Camelot with his own lyrics that show support for the former Attorney General – and that criticize the Trump administration.
In one section, he highlights how Harris took on Supreme Court Justice Judge Brett Kavanaugh after she grilled him about abortion laws during a 2018 hearing around the sexual misconduct allegations made against him.
“And though Trump calls her phony, mean, and nasty / there’s no doubt she’s more qualified than he / She sold me when I saw her come for Kavanaugh / For no one makes a grown man cry like she can. Kamala!”
The Kamala video is the latest installment in Rainbow’s series of politically themed musical numbers.
When was Kamala picked as VP?
Joe Biden announced Harris as his running mate on August 11, 2020.
An Instagram photo shared by Biden showed the moment he video-called Harris and asked her to be his vice president.
“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris – a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants – as my running mate,” the post read.
“Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau.
“I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse.”
“I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign,” Biden ended.
Lawmaker Beau Biden was Biden’s son. He died of brain cancer in 2015.
Accompanying the post is a photo of Joe Biden on a video call with a smiling Harris as they discuss the news.
Why do people think she called Joe Biden racist?
Harris, 55, did not call Biden, 77, racist during the Democratic primary debate – and even stated before she made the remarks in question that she doesn’t think he’s racist, despite what many think.
The exchange came after Biden boasted about being able to work with senators he disagreed with, including ones who supported segregation.
Harris said on stage: “I’m going to now direct this at Vice President Biden.
“I do not believe you are a racist, and I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground.”
“But I also believe, and it’s personal, and it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who (have) built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country.”
Biden said Harris’ remarks were “a mischaracterization of my position across the board. I do not praise racists. That is not true.”
Weeks later, Biden said he was wrong on his comments about his track record of working well with segregationists.
“Was I wrong a few weeks ago?” Biden asked. “Yes, I was. I regret it, and I’m sorry for any of the pain of misconception that caused anybody.”
