(FreedomWire.org) – Vice President Kamala Harris got a cold reception on the third day of the NCAA’s March Madness tournament in Des Moines, Iowa when she made a surprise appearance to watch her alma mater, Howard University, lose to Kansas.

Harris, who graduated from the Washington D.C. college in 1986, received a hostile reception when she appeared on the jumbotron during the basketball game at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa on Thursday.

The makeup of the crowd at the March Madness event may have had something to do with the booing Harris received.

Iowa is not Biden/Harris territory. Over half of Iowa’s voters, 53.1 percent, voted for former President Trump in the 2020 presidential election, compared to 44.9 percent of votes for Biden.

Kansas is also a red state. They almost assuredly joined in the enthusiastic booing aimed at Harris. It’s no wonder Harris slinked into the Arena instead of issuing a press release that she would be in attendance.

As the image of Harris taking in the game came upon the arena’s jumbotron, boos drowned out the feeble round of applause given to her, according to the Associated Press.

Following Howard Bison’s loss to the Kansas Jayhawks, Harris went to talk to the team in the locker room and praised the players.

“You played hard. You played to the very last second. You made all us Bisons proud,” Harris said. “You hustled out there, you are smart, you are disciplined. You put everything you had into the game.

(FreedomWire.org) – Sen. Tim Scott, who is considering a 2024 bid for the presidency, traveled to Iowa on Wednesday and brought a message of “a new American sunrise,” articulating a positive vision that sets him apart from some possible rivals.

“Pretend you were our nation’s greatest enemy,” Scott said to supporters in Iowa. “Say you wanted a blueprint to ruin America. What would you put in it? First, you’d take aim at our patriotism. You’d amplify attention-seekers who say America is an evil country. Make it easy to get rich and famous by feeding the empty calories of anger to people who are starving for hope.”

Scott knocked President Joe Biden, saying that if Americans want the country to be ruined, then to vote for him a second time. 

The Republican accused Democrats of pushing division in the nation, arguing that the U.S. needs “new leaders who will lift us up, not tear us down.”

“I see a future where common sense has rebuilt common ground, where we’ve created real unity, not by compromising away our conservatism, but by winning converts to our conservatism,” Scott said, adding, “I see 330 million Americans getting back to celebrating our shared blessings again and tolerating our differences. I see us having each other’s backs again.”

He also warned those from the Left who call him a prop for the Republican Party that he will prove their lies wrong. 

“For those of you on the Left, you can call me a prop, you can call me a token, you can call me the N-word, you can question my blackness, you can even call me ‘Uncle Tim.’ Just understand: Your words are no match for my evidence,” Scott continued. “My existence shows your relevance. The truth of my life disproves your lies.”

Scott has yet to comment on a possible 2024 run; however, should he decide to run, he has a few things going for him that would make him stand out from other Republican contenders. 

He would be the only Black Republican running for president and has emphasized unity and inclusion, which has been absent from other GOP campaigns. 

According to records from the Federal Election Commission, Scott was the top fundraiser during the 2022 midterm elections, bringing in more than $43 million.
