After months of speculation, Joe Biden announced Tuesday afternoon that Kamala Harris would be his VP candidate in the 2020 presidential election. Biden's decision to make Harris his running mate is a historic one, as Harris is the first Black woman and the first Asian American to be a general election candidate for vice president.
Biden's announcement was met with many different reactions on the internet, so we compiled some of the best ones here.
Many offered their support, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren.
Celebrities of all sorts also congratulated the California senator.
Including Katie Holmes's slightly unconventional post of celebration.
People have also pointed out that, funnily enough, Donald Trump has supported Harris in the past.
Though during a press briefing on Tuesday, Trump described Harris as "extraordinarily nasty" to Justice Kavanaugh and that he was surprised Biden picked her.
Harris's alma mater, Howard University, also sent their congratulations.
And as journalist Ben Jacobs pointed out, Harris's educational background makes her selection historic as well:
Some Twitter users were looking forward to seeing Harris go up against Mike Pence in the October vice-presidential debate.
And there were, of course, a lot of tweets about Maya Rudolph, who did a spot-on job portraying Harris on "SNL":
Upon hearing the news of Harris' selection, Rudolph reportedly reacted with an uncensored "Oh shit. Ruh-roh." According to Rudolph, she's likely to return to "SNL" to reprise the role.
Harris's selection almost certainly means that some Elizabeth Warren supporters will be disappointed.
And some Twitter users have also pointed out that Harris's background as a prosecutor and attorney general in California is controversial, especially given the pushes to abolish the police by the BLM movement:
And finally, while not exactly a reaction to Biden's VP pick, this is one of our favorites because it perfectly sums up the craziness of 2020 by involving one of this year's most viral memes:
