Harris: 'I'm ready to get to work'

Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, and his running mate Kamala Harris make their first campaign appearance together in Delaware. Follow here for the latest.

He's going down, Joe! Werds you want werds? Here’s some werds People's Republic of China unfairly discriminates Africans. Biden will be try coexist with this government. In People's Republic of China, Africans are subjected to inhumane acts by Chinese Communist Party government. YouTube He has changed where he stands over 59 times in the last 6 months !!!! Trump has not changed his once in 4 years!!!!!

Has this guy even mentioned his policy in running the country if he wins the presidency or is it all just Trump bashing? We call on all world news networks to help the suffering people of Iran make their voices heard. To stop the execution of the innocent youth of Iran and not allow this dictatorial and corrupt regime to kill more people. اعدام_نکنید execution iranianLivesMatter

Its time for the DNC to bring in a stunt double to do all of Biden’s talking parts. Hurry! The demrats must be stopped... It's amazing after 47 years he now knows how to fix everything. Hallelujah Biden trying to sound Presidential. This teleprompter speech is crap. But not protesting TrumpIsANationalDisgrace

TheThomasGuide I guess no one shows up to Eagles games... Spreading good vibes and sharing this inspiring story! A transition from Brooklyn Crips to a lead tech position, meet Victor Blanco. Beautiful well said. No title parade for the Phillies and 76ers No need to turn her face when he leans in now. 'Donald, I have mask.'

Pleaaase! 😡 Can she teach realDonaldTrump how to wear a mask, she can even use crayons to help him understand?!! I don’t care, do you? COVID has destroyed and aspect of life...no end in sight. I hope some action will be taken against China Wow. What goal post number is this one? Little late to the party, sweetie

She should train and preach her cuckoo husband🤮 Maybe she should share that with her husband 😏 Unconstitutional Cue the proud to be stupid bunch shitting their pants. 😂 But not protests? are riots OK? Just call them protests and nobody will say anything about it. What about protests, looting and riots? PhillyMayor

Including protest? Is this a joke? Protests? has bunker boy scheduled his rally there yet? he will now. Good decision How does one go from boldly not wearing a mask to suddenly wearing one, and advocating social distancing? This is another ploy to counteract the reckless behavior of this administration. Don’t believe the hype!

Schools? Why? like next year? What about her constitutional rights. Is not her body anymore? Well, herpes breakouts do their thing around this time of the month anyway. Great time Melania. Please! Where were you 4 months ago. God Bless! You and yours helped cause this. Now you're concerned. What a waste. Too late now! If Donald Trump wore a mask sooner and 🇺🇸 self isolated. COVID is not a hoax it’s deadly killing millions.

Beutyfull first Lady makes that mask look Great. Like a half a year too late. Lord I am going to hell... I can't stand this one (IvankaTrump ) I hate her she is the enemy of all women and should just give up with her fake propo and stay out of sight.😡 No matter you do you still look like a porn star to many FLOTUS so you might as well be best!

Quick! Everybody panic! 🙄 The sudden importance of mask wearing makes me think that someone close to them got COVID. Staff and secret service had it. No one was being careful. Who haven’t we seen publicly lately? 🤔😷 FLOTUS Thank you, Ma’am! It will make a difference. The fact that this is newsworthy is what is killing is. A bit late, stripper lady.

July 14 Thx Better late than never... Wear Mask to Be Best. I like it. MASKS: A shiny object of the left to divert American's attention from their failures and the fact that they have no issues. Dr Samadi: When you shut the economy down and do lockdowns unnecessarily, you are delaying the process of herd immunity!

She also plagiarized this campaign from Michelle Obama. Ooop! Love it when someone attempts to say and do something profound. And they miss bc it’s months too late. 🙄 She is even gorgeous in a mask. Pull it up over the eyes and that would be even better. . Why didn’t she wear one in South Dakota? Where was this say back in January, February, March, April, May, June! Why did they fail to prepare people all those months ? So sad now after millions die you decide it’s time!

Wow 4 months later even the Einstein visa (snicker) winning definitely not ex-hookers finally get it FLOTUS It is too late. Must have a vaccine. If she would've been saying this months ago, we would probably be having a safer summer freakin joke At least she’s trying, the bar is low in this administration. She’s 3 months late but sadly the message is still needed.

Is that what they call jumping on the band wagon? That’s an old picture Saying this back in March,April or May could have helped.🤦🏻‍♂️ Thanks but no thanks About 4 months too late. Where was she 3 months ago? Another photo op It’s only 5 months late but hey...... Who cares that's on her Trump family getting 'soft'?

Nothing but a PR stunt... Also keeps her mouth away from anything Donald... 4 months late Fakke af Too little, too late. What do you know she may be smarter than her husband after all. She is soooo good looking Too late lady Could have been a genuinely responsible act if her orange daddy didn’t do it first. And please folks, remember to wear masks when you decide to riot in the streets in mass. Thanks.

Trumpers y'all pro makes now or nah? This is the equivalent of pumping the breaks after the car has driven off the cliff. be best Tell us please how is that tennis pavillion coming? Melania is Deep State? Whatever it’s too little too late. I'm sure she's accustomed to wearing one since she has to change you-know-who's Depends on the regular.

Everything is a photo op for this old ho That mask covers up more than she's had on in some pictures Laughable Like y'all forget How many the recovered number i don't believe health workers don't cure many Godcomment... Why are European schools open? Are European Teachers better Educated? Do European Teachers care more? Or is it European Teachers are less political then American Teachers. Also Why are there no biohazard bins for mask and gloves if this virus is so contagious and deadly.
