After Multiple Shootings, White House Sends Kamala to Chicago

Forget Where's Waldo, the game of Where's Kamala is much more exciting, certainly more so than listening to one of her speeches. It's almost like her constant itinerary is an attempt to get rid of her.

Were there mass shootings in Chiraq? Send Kamala.

Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Chicago on Tuesday in the wake of more than two dozen shootings in the city, seven of which resulted in fatalities.

Harris, according to her office, will make the trip to the Windy City with her husband, Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff, to deliver remarks at the National Education Association 2022 Annual Meeting and Representative Assembly at the McCormick Convention Center.

Deep thoughts, I'm sure.

Like her address to the firefighters of Santa Monica which was a masterpiece of drivel.

Harris also spoke to the firefighters about what the administration needs do "in particular around federal support for local firefighters on every issue," noting her own personal history with wildfires in the state.

"We've had to be evacuated a couple of times. I'm a California kids were you know about drought and what that means. And I the climate crisis and what that means in terms of creating an environment that is hazardous. Particularly for you, who are on the front line," she said.

At least she didn't accuse the fires of racism.

That was after going to New Orleans to compare the Supreme Court decision on abortion to slavery.

Vice President Kamala Harris was in New Orleans Saturday for the Essence Festival of Culture.

She spoke exclusively with WDSU about gas prices and how the Biden administration will handle the problem.

"The President and our administration's probably highest priority is bringing down the price of gas and cost of living," Harris said.

Harris said the coronavirus pandemic affected the supply chain significantly and blamed Vladimir Putin's war on Ukraine for why costs are so high.

That was after inviting a drag queen to her home.

Legendary drag queen Shangela, a three-time contestant in the RuPaul's Drag Race franchise and current co-host of HBO Max's We're Here, is no stranger to breaking barriers.

The performer, whose out-of-drag name is D.J. Pierce, was the first person to walk the Oscars red carpet for his role in A Star Is Born — and that was only the beginning. Now, in another public display of LGBTQ+ representation, Pierce can say he's the first person to attend an event at the residence of the vice president while in drag.

Vice President Kamala Harris invited Pierce to speak as Shangela on Tuesday evening at a Pride Month event she hosted at her home, also known as Number One Observatory Circle. According to Pierce, the evening itself marked the first time a VP has hosted a Pride event at the residence.

Or the second one anyway.

Kamala certainly gets around and yet she's going nowhere.
