Not only did she sound phony in it, the whole thing was phony.
According to Fox News:
Vice President Kamala Harris’s YouTube space series featured child actors in its first installment.
The YouTube Original Series, entitled “Get Curious with Vice President Harris,” is aimed at getting children interested in space and included an appearance by NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough from the International Space Station. But the children featured in the first installment of the series were child actors, including 13-year-old Trevor Bernardino.
In one scene, Harris tells the children that they are “going to learn so much,” adding that they will “literally see the craters on the moon with your own eyes. With your own eyes. I’m telling you.”
The kid actors appear to be genuinely excited, and Harris seems to be revealing something to them that they don’t already know. The kids are relentlessly ebullient throughout the video.
Bernardino, a Carmel, California teen who was one of five child actors in the video, told KSBW TV that he submitted a monologue and was interviewed for a role in the series.
“And then after that, like a week later, my agent called me, and he’s like, ‘Hey Trevor, you booked it,’” Bernardino told the outlet.
