After the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion was revealed, Vice President Kamala Harris stepped in with both feet.
“I’m aware that many women are scared. To those of you who are feeling powerless and alone: I want all of you to know that the President and I are on your side. We’re in this battle together,” the vice president wrote on her official Twitter account.
In the video, Harris is seen, hand on chin, watching the CNN coverage of anti-abortion demonstrations while aboard Air Force 2.
Liberals were furious with Harris after reading her tweet.
“Can you be more thorough? For example, *how* are you fighting this battle? Describe the policy and tactics in detail,” Hillary Kelly of NY Magazine requested.
“Can you be more precise?” one Twitter user asked. “Because your supporters all require more specificity now. We need that much more than we do images and words of compassion.”
“The Administration had advance notice of this decision since the GOP stole another Supreme Court seat with Amy Coney Barrett,” the individual added. “POTUS HAD SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE OF THIS DECISION 2 MONTHS AGO. AS A BIDEN VOTER, I WANT TO KNOW, BEYOND SYMPATHY, WHAT THE ADMIN DID IN PLACE TO PREPARE FOR TODAY.”
“What work is there to be done?” another person asked. “I’m genuinely asking, what have they accomplished so far in this administration? And before anyone starts jumping on me, I voted for them because it wasn’t Trump. That doesn’t mean they’re off the hook when they don’t keep their promises.”
Harris was, according to one Twitter user, “beyond it all.”
“36,000 feet above ground level, watching on a huge screen in a private plane and hearing ‘we’re in this together’? I’m not sure you comprehend what the rest of us are going through right now,” Joan McCarter wrote for Daily Kos.
“Not Kamala Harris, who was viewing the fall of #RoeVsWade from afar on her plane. Whoever decided this was a good photo opportunity should be immediately let go. This is exactly what prayers and thoughts are intended to represent,” reporter Anna Gifty tweeted.
“So, more or less, ‘prayers and thoughts’” tweeted sports writer Trent Reinsmith.
“Change his mind about this and then I’ll believe you,” tweeted Ernest Owens, with Philadelphia magazine.
