Elite Hollywood celebrities can’t get enough of Kamala Harris. In an avalanche of gushing social media posts, it was their turn to act like star-struck fans, heaping praise on Joe Biden’s newly anointed pick for vice president. “Yes we Kam!” actress Kerry Washington declared of the far-left U.S. Senator from California.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has long been a darling of the Hollywood elite since her days as California’s attorney general. Celebrities eagerly lined up to support her presidential campaign, which ultimately flamed out despite reams of glowing mainstream media coverage that declared her to be the “candidate to beat.”
Even in her home state, with enthusiastic Hollywood support, she only managed to finish at 7 percent in California last year.
Her abysmal popularity isn’t stopping Hollywood stars from once again performing the heavy lifting in her service. Actor Chadwick Bosemen tweeted a photo of himself embracing the vice presidential candidate. His Black Panther co-star Lupita Nyong’o did the same.
