Julia Louis-Dreyfus is no stranger to the corridors of power, at least on screen. And that is why she was one of the most eager ones to congratulate Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris on her election win.
“Madam Vice President” is no longer a fictional character. @KamalaHarris

In many ways, Julia Louis-Dreyfus was congratulating the real-life ‘Veep’. As we all know, Louis-Dreyfus plays the role of Selina Meyer in HBO’s Veep, which has earned her 7 consecutive Emmy Award wins for the Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Therefore, Harris getting elected meant especially a lot more to her.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus also played a part in the campaign
Moreover, Julia Louis-Dreyfus also played a part in helping the Democrats win. She teamed up with fellow Seinfeld star Jason Alexander and co-creator Larry David for an event “Fundraiser for Something,” whose purpose was to help Texas turn into a blue state. They weren’t successful in doing so, but they did then reveal their favorite Seinfeld episodes. Fair trade-off, am I right?
Kamala Harris is now the first woman as well as a woman of color to be elected into the White House. This also makes her the highest elected official in the history of the United States. And that alone should be enough to make this election historic. But, the fact that she helped Joe Biden in beating Donald Trump makes it all the more special for the Democrats and the left-leaning majority of the United States. At first, America had to make do with seeing Julia Louis-Dreyfus play a fictional female Vice President in Veep. Now they have a real one that they can truly be proud of.
