Vice President-elect Kamala Harris made a TikTok fashion statement this week, thanks to her niece, Meena Harris.

On Wednesday, Meena posted a video to her TikTok account in which she gives her aunt a jar of peach-flavored mints.

“Impeach-mints,” Meena says to Kamala Harris as she hands them to her, causing the vice president-elect to burst into laughter.

The video is a reference to the impeachment charges that were brought against President Trump on Wednesday. He is the first president in history to be impeached twice

Harris has been largely quiet on the impeachment, aside from the video.

However, she said Trump’s statements ahead of the insurrection at the capitol were a “bald-faced, bold abuse of power by the president of the United States” at a rally on Sunday, according to a CNN report.

In the video, the vice president-elect sported a sleek, neutral-toned pantsuit.

However, rather than pairing the look with heels or other business shoes, Harris simply wore tube socks.

The socks feature teal stripes, and they’re printed with the phrase “The future is female” in the same color. They appear to be the same socks that are currently available for preorder on Social Goods.

Social Goods is an online store that specializes in creating “statement-making goods,” as stated on the company’s website. A percentage of the profits for all of its products go to nonprofit organizations.

For instance, proceeds for the “The future is female” socks will go to She Should Run, a nonprofit that helps women run for office. The socks cost $13.

This isn’t the first time Harris has made a statement with her clothing.

When she gave her victory speech in November, Harris wore an all-white suit with a pussy bow, nodding to the suffrage movement and the women’s marches from recent years.

Harris has also made waves for her signature converse sneakers, as they seem to indicate a new, modern era of the vice presidency. 

Harris could play a critical role in the Senate impeachment trials against Trump.

The Chief Justice typically proceeds over Senate impeachment trials, but because Trump will be out of office by the time the Senate holds trial, the role could potentially fall to Harris, according to some legal scholars.
