Democrat Vice President Kamala Harris was met with a rude welcome by a group of hecklers during her visit to New York City.
Harris was in the liberal enclave this week for an appearance on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
The hecklers had First Amendment signs and yelled “lock her up!” over many of the administration’s transgressions.
They were also demonstrating against the Biden admin’s push for vaccine mandates and the funding of Ukraine’s war effort.
According to the Post Millennial:
“NJEG Media told The Post Millennial that the protesters were against Biden, Democrats, vaccine mandates and pressure, the great reset, and the war in Ukraine.
“They stood by the side door waiting for her to come out.”

During her TV appearance, Colbert asked Harris what her role is as vice president.
However, she appeared to be unable to explain her job and rambled about Biden instead.
“One of the themes of the show is that her character, Selina Meyer, is frustrated by the sometimes vague duties of the role,” Colbert said to Harris.
“It’s a high constitutional office but does not describe what you’re supposed to be doing.
“Does that ring true?
“Like, what’s the actual role on a daily basis as you have found it?”
“Well, I have the great privilege of serving with Joe Biden, who is the President of the United States… and was vice president.”
“Does he understand what it’s like to be vice president?” Colbert asked.
Harris said: “He does, he does.
“He really is a true partner and he understands that job.
“And remember, we came in during the height of the pandemic.
“And so much of the work was about okay, we’ve got to cover a lot of bases, and let’s figure out between us how we can do it.
“But he’s an extraordinary leader and I wish people could see what I see because there’s only one person who sits behind that Resolute Desk.
“And the decisions that person has to make are the decisions that nobody else in the country can make.
“And he’s an extraordinary leader. He really is.”
“That’s an excellent answer and, uh, the question was what’s the job of the vice president,” Colbert shot back.
