Republicans attacked Vice President Kamala Harris after she gave reporters cookies — featuring her own likeness and that of Air Force Two — that were given to her by a Black-owned Washington, DC bakery.
Some pointed to it as a sign of “narccicism” and worse, even implying that the veep has a Christ complex. One commentator called it “extremely disturbing behavior.” Others complained that it was a poor use of “tax dollars.”
And some reactions from verified conservatives — including Trump aides — contained blatantly misogynistic and pornographic insinuations. The cookies were a gift to the first Black woman vice president from a Black woman entrepreneur, and were not, in fact, a taxpayer-funded vanity exercise.

I thought someone gave Kamala cookies that look like her.
That would’ve been a cute gift.
Instead, she gave cookies that look like her to other people.
That’s a narcissistic AF and a totally weird gift. https://t.co/cyeW2ZvmFK

Her face is melting. She has no eyes. And she wore a pearl necklace. https://t.co/tRhnr5WkQq
