On Saturday morning (after the longest election week in history), it was confirmed that Joe Biden will be the 46th President of the United States. Arguably more important though (at least for this writer), is that the U.S. will also have its first Black, Asian and female Vice President in Kamala Harris. FINALLY!
It's an emotional and powerful day for many people across country, and everyone from celebrities to ordinary people have already taken to Twitter (and to the streets in many cities) to express their intense joy at history being made. From Harris' alma matter Howard University to celebs like Alexander Wang and Mindy Kaling, here are the best, and most emotional reactions to our first Madam Vice President!
So excited for my daughters to grow up in a country where a woman of color holds the office of Vice President. May it always seem normal to them.— Gabi Moskowitz (@gabimoskowitz) November 7, 2020
MADAM VICE PRESIDENT SOUNDS PRETTY DAMN GOOD!!!!!!!!— Meena Harris (@meenaharris) November 7, 2020
Let it be known this day, you do not need a Harvard, Yale, Princeton, or Brown degree to be successful. Our Madam Vice President went to @HowardU.— HU College Democrats (@hucollegedems) November 7, 2020

And Doug Emhoff will be the first time a Vice President’s husband is Jewish.— Michael Beschloss (@BeschlossDC) November 7, 2020
