KAMALA HARRIS is more than excited to be Joe Biden's VP pick in a video showing when she accepted the offer.
In a new tweet released this morning, Harris describes her upbringing and shows the moment the Democratic presidential candidate asked her to be his running mate.
"You ready to go to work?" Biden asks a computer screen as he takes off and folds his mask.
"Oh my god. I am so ready to go to work," Harris responds as music picks up in the background and a slight smile stretches across Biden's face.
The almost two minute video shared by Harris has been watched over 1.7 million times in the mere hours since it has been tweeted this morning. As the music picks up, the screen fades to black as a recognizable photo of Harris as a child graces the screen.
"I was raised to take action. My mother knew that she was raising two Black daughters who would be treated differently because of how they looked," a voiceover by Harris begins over photos of her and her sister when they were younger.
The video continues with Harris narrating her becoming a lawyer when her mother asked her "what are you going to do about it?" The slideshow continues as Harris describes her rise to power as California's Attorney General and then U.S. Senator.
"Right now, America needs action. In the middle of a pandemic, the president is trying to rip away healthcare," the video continues, her voiceover no longer on photos of her childhood or her tenure in office but now of the president.
"And when the people cried out for support, he tear gassed them," Harris says as the video shows the president holding a bible in a staged photo op. "America is in crisis and I know Joe Biden will lead us out of it," Harris narrates as the video jumps to the two of them laughing and having a good time.
Harris also references Biden's son Beau, the Attorney General of Delaware who worked closely with Harris before his untimely death due to brain cancer.
"As Joe says, we're in a battle for the soul of this nation," Harris says, repeating the oft-said line by Biden. But together, it's a battle we can win. We just have to take action.
The screen again fades to black and returns to Biden presiding over his desk, saying "First of all, is the answer yes?" as he leans forward into the computer screen.
"The answer is absolutely yes, Joe," an excited Harris says as Biden leans back and chuckles. "And I am ready to work, I am ready to do this with you, for you. I'm just deeply honored and I'm very excited."
On Instagram, Biden shared a photo of the moment, writing "I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate."
"Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse," he wrote, repeating what Harris said in the video. "I was proud then, and I'm proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign."
Biden is holding a phone up to the computer screen that shows a smiling Harris. The name is illegible due to a text or notification that came in, but what appears to be the bottom half of a "heart" emoji graces the name.
However, in that same photo, there is a piece of text underneath Biden'sphone in which some have alleged is a script for the moment. According to the New York Post, the barely legible text supposedly reads "I’ve decided I would like you to join this effort to win back the soul of our country and be our nation’s next Vice President. I think you are entitled to know why I chose you. There are three reasons."
This took pro-President Trump social media by storm, with various accounts, like GOP rapid response chief Steve Guest and The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis, ridiculing the nominee for relying on a script.
