Twitter users were fascinated at how the secret service agent struggled to keep up with the Madam Vice-President’s jogging and took it as an opportunity to poke fun at the agent.

Here are tweeps’ hilarious reactions:



The “Glass Ceiling Breaker”, which was unveiled on 4 Febraury, is a portrait of Harris made of broken glass. The portrait is a metaphorical version of the glass ceiling that Harris shattered when she became the first female vice-president and the first black woman and first woman of South-Asian heritage to occupy office.

The portait was created by Swiss artist Simon Berger based on a portrait of Harris taken by photographer Celeste Sloman which shows Harris gracefully looking upwards.


Proud husband Emhoff took to Twitter to show the portrait to his 1.3 million followers:

“I had to see for myself this new art installation honoring @VP  Kamala Harris. It’s incredible. #glassceilingbreaker.”
