Republicans thought Harris’ opening was peculiar.
“One of the strangest videos I’ve ever seen was that one. I have no idea why she introduced herself in that manner “Republican Representative Rodney Davis said on Fox News. Is this how the vice president will greet attendees at future meetings?
Rep. Ralph Norman, a fellow Republican, argued that considering pronouns “given the difficulties this administration has brought” was absurd.
Democrats, on the other hand, did not consider it to be a problem.
Bowman told Fox News, “Let’s not make a huge issue out of things, especially when it comes to peoples’ identities.

Democratic Representative Anthony Brown said: “I believe that people should feel free to introduce themselves however they feel comfortable doing so and in whatever way they see suitable. I am aware that pronouns are being used by persons to introduce themselves more frequently these days.”
