Kamala Harris is not only the first woman to become an American Vice President, but she’s also now a TikTok sensation, after a video of her reaction to Donald Trump’s impeachment went viral online.

Uploaded by Kamala’s niece Meena Harris to her TikTok account, the video shows the future Vice President sitting on a lounge and sporting a pair of feminists socks emblazoned with the words ‘The Future is Female’.

It was the not so subtle jab at the current President in the video, however, that truly raised eyebrows online.

Meena, who is holding the camera, approaches the Vice President-elect and offers her a jar of peach coloured lollies.

"Aunty, aunty – I got you a gift," Meena says, as Harris breaks off mid-conversation, looking confused.

"Im-peach mints," the niece jokes.

In response Harris breaks out into laughter, the pun referencing that day’s impeachment of Trump for the second time following the riots at Capitol Hill that disrupted the count of the electoral college votes.

So far, the video has been viewed more than 13 million times, and has taken off on Instagram and Twitter.

The praise for the incoming VP has been overwhelming from her supporters.

“I have watched this so many times,” one wrote.

“That’s my future VP,” another wrote.

Harris will not only be the first woman to take on the Vice Presidency, but she will also be the first Black and South Asian American to become VP.

Her viral moment comes after her supporters blasted a Vogue cover of the future VP last week, for poorly representing the politician.

The February cover, which features the Vice President-elect standing in her signature Converse sneakers in front of pink and green drapes (the colors of Alpha Kappa Alpha, the sorority she was a member of while at Howard University), is being skewered online, with many saying the styling is underwhelming, unflattering and certainly not fitting of the nation’s first Madam Vice President.

“I'll shoot shots of VP Kamala Harris for free using my Samsung and I'm 100-percent confident it'll turn out better than this Vogue cover,” writer and speaker Wajahat Ali tweeted.

Vogue’s Instagram account was also flooded with criticism for the cover image, with commenters calling it “horrendous” and “disrespectful” to Harris.

Some saw it as a cultural misstep for the magazine, which has long been accused of white-washing the cover.
