In a recent development that highlights the widespread disapproval of the Biden-Harris administration, Vice President Kamala Harris was met with an overwhelmingly negative response at an NCAA men’s basketball game.
Harris attended the match between her alma mater, Howard University, and defending national champion Kansas.
When she appeared on the video board at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa, the boos resounded louder than the cheers.
The game concluded with a crushing defeat for Howard University, losing 96-68 to Kansas.
Undeterred by the icy reception, Vice President Harris entered the locker room to give the disheartened Bison players a pep talk.
Her words of encouragement, however, failed to resonate with the audience on social media.
While the vice president praised the players for their hard work and discipline, it appears that her own lack of connection with the American public has led to her message falling on deaf ears.
The Biden-Harris administration’s failed policies and inability to address pressing issues have left many Americans disillusioned and frustrated.
As Harris attempted to inspire the players with her words, it seems that her presence at the game only served to remind the public of the administration’s failures.
Howard University’s third NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament appearance, and their second as a No. 16 seed, should have been a proud moment. Instead, the reaction to the vice president’s presence has overshadowed the accomplishments of the team.
Under Coach Kenneth Blakeney, Howard achieved a 22-12 record this season, a significant improvement from their mere four wins just three years ago. It’s unfortunate that their efforts were overshadowed by the political climate and the Biden-Harris administration’s unpopularity.
The incident is indicative of the larger problem that the Biden-Harris administration faces: a lack of trust and support from the American people.
The vice president’s failed attempt at a pep talk is just one more example of the disconnect that the administration has created.
It’s time for the Biden-Harris administration to focus on rebuilding the trust of the American people by addressing their concerns and putting America first.
