On Wednesday night, Vice President Kamala Harris appeared on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.’ While leaving the studio following the taping of the show, Harris was met by protesters chanting “lock her up.”

During the show, Harris and Colbert discussed her role as vice president, referencing the HBO comedy “Veep” starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, which Harris admitted was a somewhat accurate depiction of her time as VP.

“There are bits of it that are actually quite accurate,” Harris replied, launching into a story about one of her staffers forgetting to open the fireplace flue before lighting a fire, subsequently filling her office with smoke.

Colbert then asked Harris about the actual role and daily responsibilities of a U.S. Vice President.

Embarrassingly, Harris was completely unable to describe what her job as vice president is and, instead, began talking about Joe Biden.

“Well, I have the privilege of serving with Joe Biden, who is the President of the United States… and was vice president,” Harris said.

“He really is a true partner and he understands that job. And remember, we came in during the height of the pandemic. And so much of the work was about okay, we’ve got to cover a lot of bases, and let’s figure out between us how we can do it,” Harris rambled.

“But he’s an extraordinary leader and I wish people could see what I see because there’s only one person who sits behind that Resolute Desk. And the decisions that person has to make are the decisions that nobody else in the country can make. And he’s an extraordinary leader. He really is.”

“That’s an excellent answer and, uh, the question was what’s the job of the vice president,” Colbert said, directly calling out Harris for intentionally avoiding the question that should have been easy for her to answer.

During the taping of the show, a group of protesters gathered outside the studio with American flags and signs, some of which had explicit language on them.

One sign said, “Kamala and Joe Go Fight in Ukraine YOURSELVES.”

As she left the studio, the group of protesters yelled “lock her up,” chasing her motorcade down the street as she drove away.

Just before Harris came outside, NYPD and Secret Service tried to move the protesters off the block, but they refused, citing the first amendment. They were ultimately permitted to stay since no one had the right to force them to leave.
