Kamala Harris almost took quite a tumble when she nearly fell right off the podium ahead of a speech about Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdict in George Floyd’s death.

It happened right after President Joe Biden and Vice President Harris had stepped into the hallway at the White House to deliver remarks on Tuesday’s verdict. (RELATED: Facebook, Twitter Do Not Censor Video Of Maxine Waters Encouraging Protesters ‘To Get More Confrontational’)

The VP was approaching the podium where she removed her face mask. It then appeared that she went to step up and just slipped and almost fell all the way back but managed to hold on to the podium and steady herself to the right position. It happens at the 29:05 minute mark. (RELATED: ‘Do Not Result To Looting Or Violence’: George Floyd’s Uncle Asks For Peace Ahead Of Derek Chauvin Trial)


She then seems to make light of it and can be heard saying, “How’s that for an entrance?” (RELATED: Kamala Harris’ Sister Says A ‘Just Verdict’ Not The Same ‘As Justice’ After Chauvin Found Guilty On All Counts)

At one point, Biden even stepped closer to her to possibly make sure she was okay before the vice president said she wanted to “thank the jury for their service” and said a “measure of justice isn’t the same as equal justice.”

The Minnesota jury found the former Minneapolis police officer guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.
