Harris rebounds after difficult trip

Vice President Harris looked on with a smile as President Biden got down on his knees Thursday to greet 94-year-old Opal Lee at a ceremony making Juneteenth a federal holiday.

“Looking out across this room, I see the advocates, the activists, the leaders who have been calling for this day for so long, including the one and only Ms. Opal Lee … who just received a very special recognition from the president of the United States,” Harris said, eliciting laughter and applause from lawmakers in the room.

At the event, Harris put her arm around Lee, an activist who pushed for years for recognition of the holiday, and held her hand as Biden officially signed the legislation
