Harris hosted a “Pride” month party Wednesday night attended by ‘out’ administration officials including White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and Admiral Richard “Rachel” Levine, and other drag performers. Bathroom signs at the Vice President’s residence at the Naval Observatory were altered for the occasion, according to photos posted by reporter Charlie Spiering.

The party was co-hosted by the LGBTQI+ extremist group GLAAD.

NBC News video report on the party:

According to NBC, Harris attacked Republicans in remarks at the party (excerpt):

Speaking in front of leading LGBTQ advocates, policymakers and celebrities Wednesday, Vice President Kamala Harris slammed the Republican lawmakers behind the historic wave of anti-LGBTQ state bills introduced across the country over the past several years.

“One of the strengths of our nation has been in our fight for progress,” Harris said at a Pride event held at her Washington residence and co-hosted by the LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD. “A measure of progress is the expansion of rights, not the restriction of rights.”

However, she told the crowd, “what we’re up against right now” are “so-called leaders, these extremists who are trying to do an abrupt, backward march.”

“But we’re not having it. Not on our watch,” she said.

Also this week, Harris got her husband Doug Emhoff to show off his “Pride” (and sacrifice his self-esteem) by holding up a “Kamala Harris “Pride Tee” campaign shirt”

Earlier in the week Harris visited the Stonewall Inn with Andy Cohen, the site of a historic gay riot in 1969 that Barack Obama designated a National Monument in 2016 and is now administered by the National Park Service.

“Thank you @Andy and the Stonewall Inn team for welcoming me. Happy Pride!”

The week started off for Harris with an NBC poll showing she has the worst net-favorability of recent vice presidents (The Hill excerpt):

Nearly half of the respondents have a negative view of Vice President Harris, according to a new NBC News survey.

The poll, published on Monday, found that 49 percent of respondents have a negative opinion of Harris, while 32 percent of those surveyed have a positive opinion of the vice president.

Harris received a net negative rating of -17, which is the lowest net negative rating for a vice president in the history of the poll.

The poll comes as White House officials have been working with Harris to repair her image and bump up her polling numbers ahead of the 2024 election, according to Axios.
