Vice President Kamala Harris kissed second gentleman Doug Emhoff on Tuesday morning — while both wore masks — before boarding Air Force Two at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.
The moment happened shortly before Harris departed the base on her way to Rhode Island with U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo.
Both Harris and Emhoff have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus for months.

“Harris and Raimondo are set to participate in a roundtable discussion with the owners of women-led small businesses to talk about the impacts of the pandemic,” The Providence Journal reported. “Harris is expected to talk about the value of high-speed internet, a piece of President Joe Biden’s infrastructure package he has tasked the vice president with leading. Harris will be joined by Gov. Dan McKee, Sens. Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse; and Reps. Jim Langevin and Davis Cicilline at various stops on her Providence travels.”
The trip comes as the Biden administration struggles with a crisis on the southern border that has erupted under their leadership. Steve Guest, Special Advisor for Communications for Sen. Ted Cruz, called out Harris for the trip while their border crisis rages, writing: “Kamala Harris is 2,100+ miles away from the #BidenBorderCrisis today.”
