This story is part of 2020 elections, CNET’s coverage of the November vote preparations.
With news that Joe Biden won the race for US PresidentKamala Harris, his runner-up, made history. The elected vice president will be the first woman ever elected to this position, as well as the first black and first Asian American woman. One of the earliest congratulations to Harris was someone who knows the Vice President’s duties well, at least on television: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who played Vice President (eventually President) Selina Meyer in HBO’s popular comedy Veep, which ended in 2019.
“‘Madam Vice President’ is no longer a fictional character,” tweeted Louis-Dreyfus.
Louis-Dreyfus was far from being alone in her congratulations. In the historic election, many people on social media – from politicians to entertainers to everyday voters – reacted with excitement.
“Do you hear that?” Wrote a Twitter user alongside footage of Harris dancing exuberantly. “That’s the cracking of the glass ceiling.”
Dancing was a common theme in the Harris memes, with some referencing Louis-Dreyfus’ infamous, awkward dancing as Elaine on the hit sitcom Seinfeld.
Inspired other women
A popular image created by artist Bria Goeller and shirt company Good Trubble showed Harris – the daughter of an Indian mother and a Jamaican father – holding a briefcase and the shadow of Ruby Bridges on a wall beside her. Ruby Bridges was, of course, the first African American child to leave his all-white elementary school in Louisiana.
Many women celebrated Harris’s election as a historic premiere that they weren’t sure would happen in their lives. Wrote one: “I cry for joy. As a 61 year old woman, I was afraid I would never see that day. That means a lot! ”Another wrote:“ What a great day for my daughters and all the daughters of this country. ”
Husband Douglas Emhoff is also celebrated
And some also celebrated the very first second gentleman, Harris’ husband Douglas Emhoff.
Emhoff tweeted a photo of himself hugging his wife and wrote: “So proud of you.”
