Kamala Harris is slammed for extreme and ‘unnecessary’ social distancing ‘theater’ during CNN interview

Vice President Kamala Harris has faced criticism for what people have called extreme social distancing during a sit-down CNN interview. 

Harris and host Dana Bash appeared to be seated well over six feet apart during the interview on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday.  

Viewers were quick to point out the large distance between the two, saying on social media that it was ‘unnecessary’ and ‘all theater’.

The CDC updated its guidance last month to say fully vaccinated people could gather indoors without wearing a mask or remaining six feet apart with others who have been fully vaccinated.

Fully vaccinated people can also gather inside with unvaccinated people from another household without masks or social distancing if that person, or people they live with, does not have an increase risk of severe illness from COVID-19

Harris has been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 since January but Bash’s circumstances were not immediately clear.

‘They’re freaking vaccinated,’ one person claimed on Twitter.  

‘Grab some popcorn it’s all theatre,’ one said.  

‘They’re further apart than two kids dancing at a church social,’ another said.  

Another claimed the distance was down to the Democratic brand and was ‘unnecessary’. 

‘Given how unnecessary this is, we can only assume that the Democrats have something to gain by keeping people unreasonably anxious and afraid of Covid,’ they wrote. 

‘Why else would they insist on adopting this kind of theater and making it part of the Democratic brand?’ 

Another joked about the distance, saying: ‘Can you scooch back just a little? Thanks! Little more though? Now just scooch a bit more. Juuust a bit more. Scooch a touch more? Thanks, a little more. CAN YOU HEAR ME? I SAID A BIT MORE! Can she me waving my hand? Call her cell. Kamala? It’s Dana, can you scooch a bit more?’
