Vice President Kamala Harris kicked off a stumbling week by giving an interview in New Orleans under a White House graphic that had “Louisiana” misspelled.

Harris was in Louisiana this weekend to attend Essence Fest, a music festival and political event focused on social issues, particularly those affecting black women. Harris participated in a 30-minute interview at the event, and social media mocked her for sitting under a misspelled Louisiana sign right under the vice presidential seal.

“Vice President Kamala Harris. New Orleans Louisiana,” the sign read, overlooking that the letter “i” appears twice in the state name.

Neither Harris nor the interviewer addressed the typo during their conversation.

Social media users were quick to point out the misspelling.

“It’s a perfect metaphor for his entire administration,” wrote a Twitter user.

Harris and interviewer Keke Palmer discussed racial issues as well as the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. Harris condemned the decision and argued that it was part of the American history of claiming “ownership over human bodies”.

“We have to recognize that we are a nation that was founded on certain principles that are — that are founded on the concept of liberty and liberty,” Harris said. “We also know that we have had a history in this country of government – trying to claim ownership of human bodies.”
