On Sunday afternoon, June 12, Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff made what the media is calling a “historic Pride appearance” at Capitol Pride in Washington, D.C.
Harris and Emhoff took the stage with “Symone,” the winner of season 13 of the TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race, and the Vice President’s official Instagram page promptly featured a photo of Harris hugging the scantily-clad drag queen with the tagline “Love is love. Happy Pride!”
We have heard a lot about the “dignity of the office” over these past few years, and somebody will have to explain to me how the Vice President of the United States hugging a drag queen wearing nearly no clothing in public is dignified. Our definitions have changed a lot over the past decade, which is one of the reasons an all-out culture war is being fought over drag shows for children and LGBT indoctrination of minors. But surely—surely—sane people can agree that what happened at Capitol Pride on Sunday with children present was disgusting.
I think that the Vice President has a few things to explain. For example, does she endorse the actions of a nearly naked man with breasts twerking in front of a police officer while children march behind them?
Or the presence of a toddler so young he constantly wandered and had to be redirected by an adult while waving a hand-drawn rainbow sign amidst public displays of nudity and debauchery?
