VP Harris mocked over a NASA video in which she talks about space exploration with children who turned out to be actors;
Marking World Space Week, the YouTube video titled Get Curious With Vice President Harris, shows five teenagers talking about space on a trip to Washington, DC where they visit the Naval Observatory.
- In the nine-minute video, the group talks via Zoom with NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough from the International Space Station (ISS).
- They interact with Harris, who is also head of the Space Council, and react excitedly when she tells them they are “going to learn so much,” as well as “see the craters on the moon with your own eyes.”
- But some media outlets reported that the video misled viewers by portraying the group as being selected solely because of their interest in space.
- Trevor Bernardino, 13, from Monterrey, California, told KSBW TV he got the call to appear in the video after sending in a monologue about something he is passionate about and three questions he would ask a world leader.
