Hey y'all! I'm reporting Live from the White House for the #JusticeKetanjiBrownJackson celebration. We are expecting remarks from POTUS, VP #KamalaHarris and the woman of the hour. Stay tuned for my updates!
The atmosphere is jubilant for the Judge #KetanjiBrownJackson #SCOTUS celebration on the South Lawn. Lots of group selfies & hugs. Spotted: Rev Al, Leader Schumer, Administrator Regan, Sec Fudge, lots of CBC members, civil rights & political leaders from Higher Heights and more.
Cheers for the family of Judge #KetanjiBrownJackson as they enter her #SCOTUS celebration.
Judge #KetanjiBrownJackson on it taking 103 justices before a Black woman was confirmed: "WE made it, all of us". #SistaSCOTUS
The White House just released the official portrait of our next Supreme Court Justice #KetanjiBrownJackson. #JusticeKBJ was shot by famed photographer Lelanie Foster, a young Black artist from the Bronx. #BlackWomenLead ✊🏾
Here are a handful of the snaps I took today for the #JusticeKBJ celebration. Pictured are: Associate AG Vanita Gupta, Rev Al, Rev Jesse Jackson Sr, FLOTUS, 2nd Gentleman, POTUS, MVP, Judge #KetanjiBrownJackson, Parents and brother of Judge Brown Jackson.
Got an article to write but lemme post me at the White House on this historic day honoring Judge #KetanjiBrownJackson. Yes I was working, but it was an honor to witness such a momentous event. Thanks to my good sis for capturing me in the press pool.

Hey y'all! Guess who is reporting from the White House #BlackHistoryMonth event?! Stay tuned directly updates!
Full house today at the White House #BlackHistoryMonth celebration. Lots of hugs and elbow bumps like a family reunion. So far I spotted at least a dozen CBC lawmakers, Rev. Al, Rev Jesse Jackson Jr, Star Jones, Divine 9 leadership and civil rights leaders.
Before the program starts, I'm sneaking in a selfie. We're expecting POTUS, VP #KamalaHarris and more to speak. #BlackHistoryMonth

I've heard more vitriol directed @ VP for telling people they can Google testing sites than Ron DeSantis got for letting 1 MILLION covid tests expire during the Omicron surge & refusing to open state sites. Homegirl ⬇️ said nothing about that but called VP wicked. A few things 🧵
The admin has already conceded more needed to be done on testing AND they have done exactly that. Also even before Omicron, they already invested $1 billion in at-home testing capacity. States also have a responsibility for scaling up testing.
Testing wait times are longer not because VP wickedly refuses to wave her magic pinky, it's because we are dealing with astronomical surge of cases. The daily avg is 800K new cases with a positivity rate>30%. Labs don't have the capacity to turn results around quicker (see ⬇️)

I see there is a sudden renewed interest in anti-lynching legislation as opposed to mostly crickets last year when Rand Klan Paul filibustered it. Here's a quick thread on where it stands for people who are afraid Juneteenth is distracting from getting it passed ⬇️
Last year's George Floyd #JusticeInPolicing Act included #MVPHarris' Justice for Lynching Victims Act (JFVLA), but it was taken out in this session. The JFLVA is still in the Republicans JUSTICE Act. The House has 2 bills & the Senate has 1 that are still in committees.
In the House, the Emmett Till and Will Brown Justice for Victims of Lynching Act of 2021 is identical to the Senate bill introduced by then Sen #KamalaHarris & co-sponsored by Sen Booker that passed unanimously in the Sen 2X; but it has much fewer co-sponsors than the other bill.

To the "betcha Kamala Harris wouldn't March at a BLM rally" people who responded to her appearance at DC Pride...per usual you are loud and wrong. She ALREADY DID. What else y'all wanna be fake mad about? #MVPHarris
To the "betcha Kamala won't keep the same energy for Juneteenth" folks in response to her appearance at DC Pride- per usual y'all loud & wrong. She introduced a bill to make Juneteenth a national holiday & appeared at a rally. What else yall wanna be fake mad about? #MVPHarris
To the "why won't she speak out about the lynching bill" folks in response to her at DC Pride- per usual y'all loud & wrong. She successfully got it passed after 200 prior failed attempts in the Senate b4 Rand Paul blocked it. What else yall wanna be fake mad about? #MVPHarris

Chile now folks are saying VP of the UNITED STATES Kamala Harris is supposed to solve the COVID-19 crisis in a whole ass nother sovereign country? Let's speak truth: MVP isn't getting attacked because she isn't Indian/Asian enough...she's getting attacked cuz she's too Black.
The common theme in these #MVPHarris hit pieces against isn't just anti-Blackness & racial gatekeeping, it's people making arbitrary measures of how much/ what VP should SAY with no regard for what is being done. We gotta get away from the tweet or it didn't happen culture.
Let me show you how they blatantly LIE on MVP. The article paints VP as only commenting on India as an afterthought at random events not about India. Yet here VP is at an event specifically about US->India relief efforts also speaking about her personal connection.
