Overview

Kamala 2024 refers to online support for Vice President Kamala Harris if she were to contest in the 2024 United States Presidential Election. After support for President Joe Biden faltered after the first debate between him and Donald Trump in late June 2024 and the Supreme Court decision to bolster immunity for presidents, progressives skeptical of Biden's capacity to contest the upcoming election began sharing memes and jokes in support of a possible Kamala for President campaign. KHive activity, both ironic and sincere, began to rise on X / Twitter in early July 2024.

Background

Democrat voters began expressing apprehension about President Joe Biden's capacity to contest in the 2024 Presidential Election after the first debate between him and Trump on June 27th, 2024. X[1] user @stevienicks420 posted a joke about Vice President Kamala Harris being happy about the possibility of becoming the president in the event of Biden's death using a clip from Veep, gathering over 90,000 likes in a week (seen below).


The idea that a vote for Joe Biden could entail the possibility of Harris becoming President was echoed by Donald Trump Jr. in a June 27th post on X[2] that gathered over 12,000 likes in a week (seen below).


Developments

On June 30th, 2024, news about Kamala objecting to candidates like Gretchen Whitmer and Gavin Newsom being considered to replace Biden began making the rounds online, with a Reddit post about the rumors on /r/politics[5] gathering over 10,000 upvotes in three days.

On July 1st, the Supreme Court made a ruling that bolstered immunity for presidents in the country. This caused worry among Democrats who feared that such a decision could allow a future president to misuse their powers. The decision also spawned a wave of memes surrounding Harris and her potential to become president.



Kamala Harris Response

On July 3rd, 2024, Kamala Harris issued a statement about the possibility of her running for the Presidency in 2024, saying that she is placing her support behind the Biden campaign (seen below).[6]



Online Reactions

Many progressive X[3] users began sharing posts in late June and early July 2024 ironically supporting a Kamala Harris Presidency. For example, on July 1st, 2024, X user @RegimeCPA wrote, "Kamala after Joe steps down and she drone strikes the Supreme Court," gathering over 29,000 likes in two days (seen below, left).

Meanwhile, on July 2nd, X[4] user @AdsoOfBelk joked about Harris not only becoming president but also ruling over America for 16 years and coining the phrase Coconut Republic, a reference to the catchphrase "Fell Out Of A Coconut Tree" from the VP. The post gathered over 26,000 likes in a day (seen below, right).
