Report: VP Harris hired child actors to appear NASA video


Vice President Kamala Harris reportedly hired child actors for a recent NASA video about space. Harris was assigned to lead the Cabinet-level National Space Council in May.

KSBW TV interviewed 13-year-old Trevor Bernardino, who claimed he submitted a recorded monologue talking about something he’s passionate about. In addition, he listed three questions he would ask a world leader. At the time, he did not know the audition included a cameo with the vice president. Then, the director of the production to tested Bernadino’s interviewing skills.

They filmed the video at Harris’ home on August 11-13. At the time, the U.S. was in the middle of withdrawing troops from Afghanistan.

As a result, people on Twitter responded to the news by calling out Harris for being “fake.”

“Just when you thought the most fake human being in the history of the world couldn’t get any more phony there’s this,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted. “Her commitment to cringe is truly impressive! Kamala Harris hired child actors to be part of her widely-mocked NASA space video.”

Then, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) chimed in. “Wow,” Cruz tweeted. “Even for politics, this is cynical. Quite literally…fake news.”

Next, former Georgia State Director for former President Trump Seth Weathers compared the video to an episode of VEEP. The show is a comedy about the troubles of the first female vice president starring Julia Louise Dreyfus.

The White House told the Daily Mail Tuesday that YouTube chose the children featured.
