Early in the evening, White House reporter, Kathryn Watson ironically tweeted out, we may not get “extended commentary on Doug’s outfit tonight.” She’s not exactly right. For what it’s worth, reporter Joshua Eaton thought to criticize Emhoff’s “loose four-in-hand, no dimple,” tie, tweeting, “it’s upsetting.” Questionable tie etiquette aside, from his seat next to First Lady Jill Biden, Doug Emhoff gave us all a masterclass on what being a supportive second gentleman is all about. While waiting for President Biden to give his first speech to congress, Emhoff got to witness something few others in the United States got to in person: two women standing behind the president as he addressed congress.
Vice President Kamala Harris and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi celebrated the occasion themselves, with an elbow bump that has since gone viral on social media. Emhoff, meanwhile, who (as Katherine Tully-McManus pointed out via tweet) entered the room without applause, took his seat, and gave his wife a bit of TLC to acknowledge the moment.
Douglas Emhoff blows kisses to VP Kamala Harris
Twitter was quick to document the moment. Doug Emhoff blew VP Kamala Harris at least 11 kisses ahead of Joe Biden’s speech to Congress, and patted his heart, lovingly, by our count, four times. Needless to say, social media knows a good show of affection when it sees it. “He’s so cute with how he adores her,” tweeted one onlooker. “OMG that’s relationship goals right there!” exclaimed another via tweet.” Seeing Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff touch his heart snd blow kisses to VP Harris is just so much to me!!! What a night,” gushed a third (via Twitter).
Anyways … that moment was a keeper. But did you catch the next one? We most definitely swooned again when Second Gentlemen Doug Emhoff and First Lady Jill Biden stood up to applause each other. Jill Biden, btw, is wearing a dark blue Gabriela Hearst dress, which is getting a considerably better Twitter reception than Doug Emhoff’s tie.
