(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.
